All the king's horses
Wouldn't make me believe
Even when the walls come crashing down
You still can never be
A rebel without a cause
A rebel to the first degree
Why don't you stop trying so hard?
Cause there's no men, man enough to be

Another James Dean
You're nothing like him
So don't call me friend
Cause you're nothing like me
Even when the world stop turning
There will never be another James Dean
You'll never be James Dean

All the faces you're making
Save it for the scene
All the people you're faking
Why was it only me?
Who saw right into your eyes
And you're just not so deep
I've had too many cries
Mr. Prince Charming
Sorry, you could never be

Cause you're nothing like him
So don't call me friend
Cause you're nothing like me
Even when the world stop turning, the world stops turning
Now you move to the move to the next town
Next chance, next girl, have fun baby
I'm taking back my world

Here we are face to face
Same energy, you and me
Don't wanna be enemies [x5]

    General Commenthmm well all you people who dont like hilary duff, please tell someone who cares, this is a place where you post what you think the song meaning is not weather or not you like the artist..if you dont like her so much why are you on here lyric site?
    do something more valuable with your time instead of making fun of hilary duff. go read a book or something


    OKAY- well i do love this song it seems like its about her breaking up with a person who is not fully honest with her "All the faces you're making/save it for the scene/all the people you're faking" it seems like he plays a role around her like trys to be something hes not. seems like hes a bit cocky.

    General Commenti really like when she says

    " here we are,
    face to face,
    same energy,
    you and me,
    dont wanna be, enemies".

    i just think thats a really cool meaning.

    General CommentI've only heard a short clip of this song, and although I'm not exactly a fan of Hilary's I like her new album and I like what I've heard of this song, as well.

    General CommentJames Dean was the good looking, rich, famous etc guy when Marilyn Monroe was around..

    This is an alright song. It basically means like.. there's a guy trying to be really funny, make himself look good etc just like James Dean was but there will never be another James Dean so the guy should stop trying.

    General CommentLol James Dean was the epitome of a perfect guy for years, he became an icon because of the fact that he died at 24, at the peak of his career, after filming Rebel Without a Cause.

    Irony is, James Dean wasn't a real macho man. Sure, he liked the ladies, but he also liked the guys ;)

    General CommentEverybody here's wrong. Hilary said in an interview herself that when talking about James Dean, she's referring to Joel Madden just before they were a couple... when she was bittersweet about him and wasn't too sure.
