Check the mirror
don't ever lock and load on this
so fragile so cold
words freeze over your lips
that red is your colour baby
hiding green smiles your faking
you wear it so well

tell me goodnight
like you'll never know me
tell me goodnight
I wish it was the end

but im waiting
for sharper words
to come from trustd friends
so empty you're dancing
on my firing range street
no shadows glass houses
and everyone hears you scream
now blues become you baby
no cover-up can save you
you wear it so well
good burns deserve another two
that's one thing ive learned from you

    General CommentPretty much this song is about a girl who is lying to the guy who wrote this, in my opinion stringing him along and making him think there could be more between them than their actually is. The guy has a feeling this is the case, and he wants her to end the games..but deep down he still wants her. The sharper words from trusted friends bit refers to the "sharper" truth that he wants them to reveal to him. The good burns bit means that he's learnt that being unfair to one person means that he will eventually do it to someone else.
