he's gone, and there's nothing you could do
but i'm sure that halo keepers have a smile for you
and they've got a smile for you
no matter what they try to tell you
preaching what you can and can't do
let them go, let them save their own

judas... here's a smile for you
nothing they can sing about can match those things you put you through
and judas, here's a smile for you

i know that it reminds you every day
and if he were standing next to you
he'd breathe in and say
you know he'd say...
no matter what they try to tell you
preaching what you can and can't do
let them go, let them save their own

judas... here's a smile for you
nothing they can sing about can match those things you put you through
and judas, here's a smile for you

    General CommentI believe this song is about a girl who dates assholes and when they leave her, the singer is telling her that there's always a reason for her to smile, though she's so upset about the asshole guy leaving her, she should smile because he's gone. She shouldn't have put herself through it.

    General Commenti think its just about "judas" betraying his friends in general

    he regrets it and every one is saying bad things about him but deep down they know they would have ended up doing the same:
    "and they've got a smile for you
    no matter what they try to tell you"


    and "judas" just wishes he hadnt done it and the stuff hes put himself through and thinks about himself is much worse than what there saying:
    "nothing they can sing about can match those things you put you through"

    Song MeaningThis song is actually about Judas from Matchbook Romance. I believe he accidentally killed his girlfriend in a drunk driving accident and Brandon wrote the song for him. Not that anyone gives a shit and you all probably don't even remember coming here and writing what you "thought" the song was about but I do remember when he wrote the song and that's what he told me... THE END ;)

    PS... You're WELCOME!
