I've collected all my things and put them all in boxes.
I'll pay off all my dues, I don’t care what the cost is.
For actin like, for actin like a fool.

From another city I was lookin at the changes
Everything still looks the same but its me that feels the strangest
What am I suppose to do when I'm head to toe in lies
In a broken city with the night so long and high

When Im actin like, actin like a fool
I know I might, have said some things to you
You Know I try, but still I play the fool
When Im actin like, actin like a fool

I'm heading for a plane. I guess this is the end well. When flying high so, high you know I will come down still, will come down, you know I will come down.

I turn my head and I look behind but the moments put to rest
Everything that you said to me has sunk in to my chest


When I'm actin like, actin like a fool
I know I might, have said some things to you
You Know I try, but still I play the fool
When Im actin like, actin like a fool

I turn my head and I look behind but the moments put to rest
Everything that you said to me has sunk in to my chest

When I'm actin like, actin like a fool
I know I might, have said some things to you
You Know I try, but still I play the fool
When Im actin like, actin like a fool

    General CommentNice, this is the part where I finally get to make one of these "Woohoo, oh my f%§&ing gosh, why hasn´'t anyone ocmmented on this song yet, it's so freaking awesome and I can't believe I'm the first, sweet!"
    (I always wanted to find one of those)

    Although this song actually is good. I think it's about the hardships of life, like changes, things that have been said and more importantly dealing with all the things going on in life and things you have done in your past. And of course the feeling of somehow having no clue what is going on (thus the "I try, ....'but acting like a fool" part.)

    He probably sings about the difficulty of acually living a respectful life day after day and how ou can feel sort of senseless and so on.
    The light and uplifting melodies though give you the feeling of sort of wearing all your high and low times and flaws etc. as a badge with a bit pride, although you still just are a little light on the face of the earth who hasnt that much of a clue what the deal really is.
    But this last part is just the way I feel about it. I got the feeling of gettin' the point of the message though x-D
