You're head lays down upon this car
But I hate you for what you are
And what I have become
Fire burns within your lungs
So light yourself another smoke
And recreate what we call "hope"
Make me feel like you care
Moonlight shines down on your hair
And did I let you know how beautiful you look tonight
Your smile lights this sky
And all I ask is you save me your last dance...

Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking
Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking

Start flames to burn out
Start thinking out loud
Give me an ending
Then we'll stop pretending
If we stop pretending
We know where we're heading
Cause I said stop but I'm still spinning
They said I've lost but I'm still winning
Burn quick and stand still
Speak slow to get through
These words I couldn't say to you
I crack concrete falling down for you

Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking
Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking

Feel so t-t-t-tongue tied
Feel so t-t-t-tongue tied

Feel so t-t-t-tongue tied
Feel so t-t-t-tongue tied
I'm not shaking

Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking
Tick tock, we dance to the beat
The clock spins, you spin into me
Feel my hands
I'm not shaking

    General CommentI like this song alot. Especially The "And recreate what we call "hope" Part...

    And I know what you mean. I was reading AP magazine, and they were on their top 100 bands to become big in 2006. When they asked what was one of their favorite bands they said "Click 5". What the fuck it up with that!

    General CommentThat wasn't their favorite band, Antilove, that was the AP editors comparing them to other bands. If you read the bit about Iam A Ghost (I think that's the name) it says they sound like My Chemical Romance, and they state in the interview that they resent that, and don't even like them.

    General CommentOk an actual comment about the song.... it's probably my favorite song off of 'A Season in Hell' for some reason I can't stop listening to it....
    "Make me feel like you care
    Moonlight shines down on your hair
    And did I let you know how beautiful you look tonight
    Your smile lights this sky
    And all I ask is you save me your last dance..."
    Awesome lyrics

    General CommentI love this song, it's very emotive,

    To me it's about a guy who has lusted after a girl for so long that he has fallen in love with her and this song describes what happens when he finds out she doesn't feel the same, but she is willing to spend one night with him.

    I am probably wrong but that's how I read it.

    General Commentthis is my favorite track on the cd... the moment i heard it i fell in love with it. i cant really put it into words what it means but the line

    " i crack concrete falling down for you"

    its amazing.. i think it means that he fell so in love with her, that he cracked concrete( not literally lol).

    beautiful.song.

    General CommentMy favorite part "I'd crack concret falling down for you"...He loves her so much he'd do pretty much anything for her...I think it's about a couple that the girl falls out of love with the guy but he still loves her and doesn't want to let her go...He still has hope that it can work...He doesn't want her to tell him that she doesn't love him anymore b/c then he knows it's over and he just wants one last dance with her...
    I definitly wish all girls thought like this...Haha...My favorite song...Love it

    General CommentI think that this song is about a guy who has been in love with a girl for a very long time and is now returned. At first his hands were "shaking" because he was so nervous but now he isnt "shaking" any more because he knows that he has her. And even though he isnt shaking anymore hes stll tongu-tied because hes so happy/suprised at what has happened. Awesome.

    General CommentI basically agree with everyone here, but i think it's about the end of a relationship. They both need to let go, but he just wants one more night with her. "Give me an ending
    Then we'll stop pretending
    If we stop pretending
    We know where we're heading
    Cause I said stop but I'm still spinning"
    He knows ending it is for the best, but he will miss her
