It's like the laughter of a child in the mind of those who want it back.
Like when I watched her defy the world in just one night.
Put yourself on the line it's safer than you've ever felt before,
Cause you're in love tonight.
And you tried so hard not to lose yourself again,
But you're alone tonight.
Hello with a blank stare. I know that you don't care.
Goodbye, no you wouldn't dare but I still do.
You're so conscious of yourself, but are you even conscious at all.
How does it feel right?
And you tried so hard not to lose it all over again,
But you're alone tonight.
Hello with a blank stare. I know that you don't care.
Goodbye is too much to bear.
Sometimes I feel so obscure. Am I just a beggar here?
I know that you never cared, but I still do.
You lied to me so it's time for me to say goodbye.

    General CommentI think it means that someone has been hurt in a relationship, and is now paranoid about giving their heart to another person even though part of them wants to. Andrew is trying to get them out of their shell.
