You took your hand
From the sky
Said you were tired
Of doing someone else's job
Then the moon fell
And shattered on the ground
I said "I’m sorry for the last six months,
It’s not your fault you're stronger than the sky"
The nights were darker
'til they put it back together
The days were brighter though
I thought so at least
I climbed the clouds with you
When it was time to take it back
It looked awfully heavy,
But you just said,
"Relax, I’m just pretending to play God...
It’s a one time thing, I promise
Besides,
I can quit when I want."
And then the rain fell
Onto our eyelashes
We closed our eyes on that Tuesday night
And held our hands together
But nothing ever happened
And never will

You’re as human as me
I’m as flawless as you
Perfect is a word made up by a fool
You can't count on page to erase all your doubt
A few dollars won't make that broken heart any better

A flower can't heal time
But the truth can take lies from their
Pedestal and push them to the floor
You can't prove you'll miss me if you don't stay
A picture’s worth a thousand words,
But your love is much more

We can say "one day" all we want.
But I’d much rather it be "today"

You’re on tip toes waiting for the sunlight
And I can't wait for this rain to go away

    General Commentthis song is amazing, hands down, amazing.
    its kind of hard to figure out though....

    i got the vibe that one person was obviously holding the relationship together, and supporting the other person...but the person doing the supporting couldnt do it anymore, and maybe they wanted different things? blah. someone help me out here.

    General CommentI'm not sure on the meaning but I do know I love the title

    11:12

    Reminds me of when you miss your 11:11 wish by a minute and you're like 'damn'

    this part makes me think... drug problem?
    maybe the person doing the drugs has been leading this other person on.
    and that the person being led on is worried about this drug problem but doesnt want to say anything because all the want to do is make them happy and be with them.

    they figure out that no one is perfect.
    and that they will wait forever to be with this person...



    wow, i could be WAY off but idk?

    General Commenti agree with musiccxxx that this is about some form of drug abuse. the whole "pretending to play god" probably either means that they realize they're killing themselves (aka doing god's job, in a way) or they think they're going to live through this but everyone else thinks they're going to die, so they aren't really playing god it just looks like it (from their point of view)
    i dunno that's just what i got from those lines.
    and "it's a one time thing, i promise. besides, i can quit when i want"
    typical words from someone who abuses drugs and doesn't realize that they will get addicted and continue to abuse them.
    it's a sad song, to me at least.
    and this is so weird, but as i wrote this i looked up at the clock and realized it was 11:12 :| freaky coincidence.

    General CommentI agree with what rainbowvomitt said about the 11:11 thing.
    I was just thinking about that as I listened to the song. It kind of made me think of like, when you miss 11:11, and you're just like, "Missed it again."

    Or, that kind of thing.

    And I also agree with what fueledbyrebecca (I love your username, btw :D) said about the drug abuse. But you know, you can never be sure.
