"Faking My Own Suicide" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
So, I�ve made up my mind/
I will pretend to leave this world behind/
And in the end, you�ll know I�ve lied/
To get your attention/
I�m faking my own suicided/

I�m faking my own suicide/
Because I know you love me/
You just haven�t realized/

I�m faking my own suicide/
They�ll hold a double funeral/
Because apart of you will die/
Along with me/
It�s kind of sweet/

I wish you thought that I was dead/
So rather than me you�d be depressed instead/
And before arriving at my grave/
You�d come to the conclusion/
You�d loved me all your days/
But it�s too late/
Too late for you to say/

Because I�m faking my own suicide/
Because I know you love me/
You just haven�t realized/

Oh, I�m faking my own suicide/
They�ll hold a double funeral/
Because apart of you will die/
Along with me/

I�ll write you a letter that you�ll keep/
Reminding you your love for me is more than six feet deep/
You say aloud that you would have been my wife/
Write about that time is when I come back to life/
And let you know/
I�d let you know all along I was.../
All along I was faking my own suicide/
Because I know you love me/
You just haven�t realized/

I was faking my own suicide/
I�ll walk in that room and see your eyes opened so wide/
Opened so wide/
Because you know/

Because you know you will never leave my site/
Un till the day that I die for the first time/
And we�ll laugh, yeah we�ll laugh/
And we will cry/
So overjoyed at the love that�s so alive/
Our love is so alive/

    General CommentDon't call him matty, that's just stupid. His name is matthew, or MT, because that one's just fun, but not matty, it just sounds gay and creepy. And this song is amazing, there is nothing wrong with him, he just wants someone to love him, and that's basically what this song is about

    General CommentThis might just be my favorite song of all time.
    Matthew takes something so common [unrequited love] and thinks of it in a new way. He's amazing. Just...wow.

    General Commentfirst off, don't get on her case because she called him Matty. I'm pretty sure he calls himself that...
    anyways..

    The song is basically about a guy who fakes his own suicide to get the girl he like's attention/affection. After the girl realizes he's dead, she decides she loves him. That's when the guy comes back to life. It's pretty simple. There are like 1471781 interviews with him out there that explain what it means.

    General Commenthaha you guys make me laugh.. but all opinions are real good, but in simplest terms, this song is about a guy loving this girl but she does not love him back. She knows of these feelings for her but is too scared to love him. The guy knows simply that if she were to realize what she truly had through this relationship with him, and he were to die, she would finally know what she was missing. Unfortunaly girls suck at knowing what they have until its gone. And guys want exactly what they cannot have, ironic huh?
