Nothing to see here
outlined in white
just the red on the carpet
the scene of the crime...

the devil made you do it
[x2]

WHY DO IT JUST FOR THE FASHION?
[x2]

where, oh, where has my baby been
[x2]

i would die to hear your voice
you've been gone so long
i can't feel you
and your hand on my heart beating true
did you think i'd live without you?
you belonged to me

i miss your face.
i lost my place,
i lost my faith

    General Commenti love the music video they made for this,
    just a whole bunch of live shows.
    simple yet stunning.

    Nothing to see here
    outlined in white
    just the red on the carpet
    the scene of the crime...

    Pretty much says itself.

    i would die to hear your voice
    you've been gone so long
    i can't feel you
    and your hand on my heart beating true
    did you think i'd live without you?
    you belonged to me

    i miss your face.
    i lost my place,
    i lost my faith


    He cant believe it... lost all beliefs, faith and place in life.. misses him or her

    General Comment28DaysToFigureMeOut has the correct idea. Somebody he loved commited suicide (The blood on the carpet, the scene of the crime.) Drop dead, gorgeous always use the different teen scenes in their songs. The whole "I cut my wrists" thing supposedly belongs to the emo/scene crowd (Why do it just for the fashion?) Meaning, she did it to get attention. The meaning of the entire bottom half of the lyrics is obvious. He misses her terribly.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song, so little comments ..

    Nothing to see here
    Outlined in white
    Just the red on the carpet
    The scene of the crime...

    I pretty much am sure that these lines mean he saw what has his gilrfriend done .. cutting and bleeding on the carpet. There is nothing outlined in white, because there is no corpse. It's not a real suicide.

    The devil made you do it
    WHY DO IT JUST FOR THE FASHION??

    He doesn't think she was herself, while doing that .. the devil inside her did it. The devil perhaps is the fashion to be "oh-so-sad-and-loveless-emo" [nothing against - I

    General Commenti dont think this person killed herself i think he is just realizing she cuts her self for "the fashion" a.k.a attention, because it says there is only blood on the carpet. and when he says he misses her maybe he means he misses the real her before she cut herself and now it's not the same.?

    General CommentI don't believe that the girl died I think its the actions she did "cutting herslf" that made her dead to him. "been gone so long... I've lost my faith meaining that even though she's physically still there emotionally she's gone. And he lost his faith or gave up on hope that she will ever return to her natural normalself. She might have not even physically hurt herself at all mabey the blood symbolizing hurt and the carpet being his heart "the devil made you do it " could mean he doesn't believe she would willing do these things to hurt him
