Set your cameras to black and white, I’d give my everything to have you back tonight.
It doesn’t feel like paradise anymore.
Dance with me one last time, sing with me before this dies.
She’s the only girl left on the dance floor.
Tonight I stole the show.
Envy sat at the back, he’s no Romeo.

Remember when the world was falling at our feet and the dance floor raped every move we made.
And jealousy takes his place, leaving a bloody covered face.
She grasped my hand, and whispered, “I love you my dear.”
Embrace me tonight for I am lonely.
Put your best dress on and look your best girl.
Paris has been painted for us.
It’s all we deserve and all we desire.
Go back to your ghost town ‘cause she’s my girl.
Now I know why you hate goodbyes.

I am kissless, I am breathless.

    General CommentI'D LIKE TO RE-WRITE THESE LYRICS IN A MORE COHERENT MANNER- THE ONES POSTED ABOVE ARE CORRECT, BUT NOT EASY TO FOLLOW WHEN LISTENING TO THE SONG.

    Set your cameras (It doesn't...)
    To black and white (Feel like...)
    'Cause I'd give (Paradise...)
    My everything (Anymore...)
    To have
    You back tonight
    I'd give my everything
    To have you back...

    Dance with me, one last time
    Sing with me, before
    This
    Dies

    Set your cameras! (She's the only,
    Girl left on the... dance floor…)

    To black and white
    I would give
    Everything
    To have you back...to-

    ...-night I stole the show
    In these seats, she's no Romeo

    Remember when the world was falling?
    Remember when the world was falling?
    At our feet, and each inch
    Of the dance floor raped
    Every move we made?
    Every move we made…

    And jealousy takes his place,
    Leaving a bloody covered face
    She grasped my hand
    And whispered "I love you, my dear."

    Embrace me tonight, tonight for I am lonely
    And put your best dress on and look your best girl

    Since Paris has been painted for us…

    Embrace me tonight, tonight for I am lonely
    And put your best dress on, and look your best girl

    It's all we deserve, it's all we desire
    It's all we deserve, it's all we desire

    So you, go back
    To your ghost town
    Because she's my girl
    She's my girl

    Now I know why you hate goodbyes
    Now I know why you hate goodbyes

    I am breathless, I am kissless
    I am breathless, I am kissless

    I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A SPECIFIC SCENARIO BEHIND THIS SONG. I JUST THINK IT'S ABOUT BEAUTY AND JEALOUSY. MIGHT ADD ANY MORE MEANINGS IF I GET ANYTHING ELSE OUT OF IT.

    General CommentThis has gotta be one of my favourite songs.
    All round it's beautiful.

    I think it's about jealousy.

    General Commentprobably my favourite song of all time

    the 2 voices are beautiful, its ever flowing and easy to listen too and great to sing along :)
    'fear' song lyrics are far easier to read/listen/understand.

    such an amazing song.

    General Commenti seriously thinks it sounds like
    "she grasped my HAIR
    And whispered "I love you, my dear."


    but im probably wrong
