Today I watched the sunset in the east
Turns out it was the sunrise
(And I walked a path as I was told a story)
(I watched you through your window)

I watched the sky as the moon was left reflecting on the day.
So if I can't have you I'll just close my eyes
And pretend she is you. Pretend you are mine.
I can see the world through your window.
And I sing to you every night from here.

Today I prayed my plane would crash.
You'd here the news
And think of me as much as I thought of you.

And if you never repeat my words
You said them before and I remember the sound
I keep the lights off
I know yuor right here
No matter what, you cant say no to me in my dreams.

Your routine is so divine. I have it memerized
As you walk to your window with your light on inside
I know you'll never find me here
As you admire the view
Do you know how pretty you look with your hair down?
I walk to your window admiring the view.

    General CommentI love it.

    "So if I can't have you I'll just close my eyes
    And pretend she is you. Pretend you are mine."

    Touching, in a sick FBTMOF kind of way.

    General Commentwell, you do the math. whats the chances someone that really listens to this band would stumble onto this site and have some clue about what the song means? not alot apparently ;)

    to me this song sounds like it was written about an obession over someone that they couldnt be with/have/get love from or whatever. my 2 cents.

    General Commenti second that notion.
    cause you cant see it in these lyrics but he keeps saying "you cant say no". meaning that he can have his way any damn way he wants in his mind with this person, and they cant stop him. and then the use of the whole "do you know how pretty you look with your hair down?...i walk to your window admiring the view." that my friends..shows the obsession.

    General Commentdefinately one of my favorite Fear Before songs. there's just so many good lines, but the one that definately takes the cake is "so if i can't have you i'll just close my eyes and pretend she is you, pretend you are mine."

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy that is totally obsessed with a girl, and he wants her really bad, but she doesn't want him.

    "Your routine is so divine. I have it memerized
    As you walk to your window with your light on inside
    I know you'll never find me here
    As you admire the view
    Do you know how pretty you look with your hair down?
    I walk to your window admiring the view. "

    Sounds like he is stalking her and watching her from outside her house.

    Yeah.

    This is one of my favorite fear before songs. It's really good.

    General CommentThis is definately one of FBTMOF's best.

    The lyrics seem to point to this guy having dreams about a girl who he obviously can't have.

    Alot of talk about sitting up at night. "Close my eyes and pretend she is you"

    Today I prayed my plane would crash.
    You'd here the news
    And think of me as much as I thought of you.
