The drama, detention, suspension of disbelief
The constant attention offers you no relief
Your pain is not special, sentence is soaked in deceit
It's inconsequential and you sing so sweetly

We all hurt the same
Convince them completely
The fires you light rise straight to the heavens

She said to me
Darling well please don't be so naive
You could burn like a constellation
But don't go before I leave

You're poised and you're perfect, face of the fallen destroyed
Call out and curse it and everything else you avoid
Your comets burn brighter but you still feel the sting
They lift up their lighters and sing so sweetly

We all hurt the same
Can never defeat me
The words you sing rain down like the heavens

She said to me
Darling well please don't be so naive
You could burn like a constellation
But don't go before I leave

You can fool yourself
And maybe someone else like me
And if you're anyone's salvation
Then there's nothing left for me

She said to me
Darling well please don't be so naive
You could burn like a constellation
But don't go before I leave

You can fool yourself
And maybe someone else like me
And if you're anyone's salvation
Then there's nothing left for me

The fires you light rise straight to the heavens

    General CommentI think this song is a clever conversation on song writers and how they are adored.

    General CommentI agree with powerbait. I think it's about how most can relate to the hurt and other feelings in the songs that singers write. At the same time they are not saving anyone's lives from a distance. Like, they have all these fans who can relate to them, but maybe they are being naive in believing that it's real, that the fans really know them. The fans are naive for believing the same thing as well, as if the singer is talking directly to or about them. When in reality he has a real person at home away from his performing life that is waiting for him to be all he sings about to her.
