"So I Finally Gave Myself A Reason" as written by and Chris Badami Arthur Carl Enders....
It's a night of many frightening things to take in
It's not the way we please ourselves or our friends
It's what we won't accept, it's what will scare us now
It's ourselves, it's ourselves

So, tonight as you walk
The moon makes faces at the trees
It's so nice to make fun of everything that I lost
And I miss and I love, but never had

Tonight I'm gonna take a test to grow up
So, I'm sorry for the things I've done to everyone
It's not your face I can't tell, but I try to be this way
It's my own

So, tonight when I walk
The moon makes faces at the trees
It's so nice to make fun of everything that I lost
And I miss and I love, but never had

It's what I can't accept
It's what I can't accept
If it's what I can't accept

So, tonight as I walk
The moon makes faces at the trees
It's so nice to make fun of everything that I lost
And I miss and I love, but never had

I'm so happy I could

Do do dodo
Do do dodo
Do do dodo
Do do dodo

Do do dodo
Do do dodo
Do do dodo
Do do do do

    General CommentIt's about the adventure of growing up, we all come to a realization of what has gone wrong in your lives and what really happened. I think he's taking a walk and thinking about his life and the road he is going to take.

    General Commentwhole cd is awesome. ace enders is awesome. early november awesome...
    basically. i dont know, ace is hard to interpret. but, i think.
    he realizes how immature he used to be, and life isnt what we make it seem. and now he is giving himself a reason to make fun of everything.

    General Commentdo you think this might be about his ex-girlfriend? i mean most of The Room's Too Cold was about her...
    "It's so nice to make fun of everything that I lost,
    and I miss, and I love but never had
    It's what I can't accept "

    that might be about her

    General CommentI don't have the CD yet, I'm getting it for Christmas, but I know the song isn't about his ex-girlfriend. I'm pretty sure that there isn't much on the CD about girls.

    General CommentStill think this song can cheer up anybody. I've been listening to it too much and I'm still not tired of it.

    General Commenti don't think it's about his ex-girlfriend either.
    his whole idea of creating "i can make a mes.." was to start completely new. he even said “I wanted to go back to the time when music was the only thing that mattered, not all of the other messy things that come with it” on his website.
    i don't think that holding on to ex-girlfriends is starting new. so, yeah
