"For the Actor" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
Oh, you and me on a fantasy
This is what it's like on a fantasy

No, I wouldn't challenge your home
In the basement of words we knew
There were more of us

Don't want to make you grow numb
If it's not what you thought it was
Legs are for discovering

Relieved and now we see the road
This is what it's like on a fantasy

Little codes bring the balance to none
And the shapes of your hands do tell of such a rare variety

Relieved and now we see the road
This is what it's like on a fantasy

You put your life on hold as we interest one another
Two steps closer to the level I imagined
I remember when it poured and you sang to me in summer
It's a fantasy

Relieved and now we see the road
This is what it's like on a fantasy

You put your life on hold as we interest one another
Two steps closer to the level I imagined
I remember when it poured and you sang to me in summer
It's a fantasy

No, I wouldn't challenge your home
In the basement of words we knew
There were more of us

You put your life on hold as we interest one another
Two steps closer to the level I imagined
I remember when it poured and you sang to me in summer
It's a fantasy

Don't want to make you grow numb
If it's not what you thought it was
Legs are for discovering
This is what it's like
This is what it's like on a fantasy

Put your life on hold
This is what it's like on a fantasy

    General CommentI'm surprised I'm the first comment, for this song is utterly beautiful. I think it about overcoming obstacles, whether with family or distracting careers to be with the one that you love.

    General Commentsounds like she doesnt want to be posessive and hold him back from seeing and experiencing things, "Don't want to make you grow numb If it's not what you thought it was Legs are for discovering". and its like they care so much for eachother that they dont mind putting their lives on hold just to be together. fantastic song.

    General CommentI think this is a song about two people who are in serious relationships, but share a special connection and are in love with one another. They can't be with each other because they refuse to break into the other's relationship "I won't challenge your home"
    so for now it's a fantasy.

    General CommentAlso the song is called For the Actor, acting as though they don't feel this way for each other. And maybe when they talk about it to each other, are around each other...they're "putting their lives on hold"

    General CommentI love this song. In general, I love songs that are sonically pleasing and then have actual lyrics to them on top of that. :D
