Everyone loves a drama
Everyone loves the drama
[x2]

Let's set the stage on fire
And Hollywood will be jealous
(When the lights go out)
[x2]

Everyone loves a drama
Everyone loves the drama
[x2]

As she stared into the night
was the castle dressed in white
Behind her virgin eyes
the mirror image of her plague
And darkness overcame
until she screamed alone in vain
Oh how lovely as she gasps,
yet so innocently sleeping
And forever she will haunt,
now manifest this disease
The misfortune of the weak,
Ill tell you what it is
Walk down these tragic steps
Disappearing with no trace, nothing left

This was the perfect murder
The perfect murder
In the ballroom with a glass,
remembering it all at last
The memory of her first kiss
led to a series of unfortunate events
She'll dance to the sound of the clock
striking twelve

Why won't you finish the job?
[x2]

Let's set the stage on fire
And Hollywood will be jealous
[x2 quiet]

Let's set the stage on fire
And Hollywood will be jealous
[keeps repeating]

    General CommentThis is the most popular song by Drop Dead, Gorgeous.
    The famous lines, are found from the chorus:

    "Let's set the stage on fire...
    And Hollywood will be jealous"

    [:
    Pretty much THE hardcore shizza.

    General Commenti'd actually say "Dressed For Friend Requests" is the most popluar right now.
    anyways.
    this is my favorite song. i love my screamo.

    Lets set teh stage on fire,
    Hollywood will be jealous...

    my favorite lines, like most people.
    i think this song is about a fariy tale... like cinderlla..
    but then kinda like a horror story at the same time.
    i love it.

    General CommentI love this song so much, Drop Dead Gorgeous OWN!

    Is the female in the song a metaphor for Hollywood?
    I get that kind of impression somehow.

    Either way, fucking awesome song without a doubt.

    Screamo at it's finest xD

    General Commenti'd have to agree with you all.
    and i think that its a tie between "dressed for friend requests" and "the show must go on" for MOST POPULAR DDG SONGS. haha. like we're keeping track?

    its a gorgeous song. one of my favorites.

    i think its about love in general. and how it always starts off amazingly wonderful..and it usually ends bad. usually. and in all ddg songs it ends bad haha.

    General CommentDDG rocks and their most popular song right now probubly is dressed for a friend. but anyway I think ther's deffinatly some ties with cinderella in here i mean. IN the ballroom, she'll dance to the sound of the clock stricking twelve.As she stared into the night
    was the castle dressed in white
    Behind her virgin eyes
    the mirror image of her plague
    but ya other than that i pretty much agree with everyone else.
