you were wrong about yesterday, you never think before you speak and last year, thinking you could be made for me. she said, "some races can't be won" and so we fade with the setting of the sun. and airplanes always leave the ground with confidence in safely coming down, unlike us, we crashed and can't be found. in the movies, on the bigscreen i'd make you mine. if this were highschool or just homecoming, we'd dance all night. don't let that smile fade, i wouldn't want to see you hurt like i am, or keep the promises we made. i know that this will come and go, but she runs further, further than she knows. could i have shown more teeth when i smiled? stood up straight when you called my name? kissed you with my eyes closed? i'm lost, i'll find my way. ...this isn't highschool or homecoming, let's say goodnight.

    General CommentI love this song, and the video for it =)

    I think... The girl is running away from it all. She wants to forget for good. But he cant stop thinking of all the times they shared. At the same time he does not want her in pain.

    General Commentthis is an awsome song. its about a realationship thats dying in my opinion. The singers sings about if this were another world "movies, big screen" that he would fix everything and make it perfect.

    The girl left (leaving?) him and hes wondering what he did wrong, what he could of done. "could i have shown more teeth when i smiled? stood up straight when you called my name?"
