"Confessions" as written by and Dallas Green....
I've been up for days
Trying to find a way to write my confession down
Seems every line I writes amiss
At least this I'll admit
I never hear that perfect sound
But then the judge walks and says
Boy you can't pretend, You've got to be honest now

My verdict has come in
It says I'm guilty for my sins this time
I thought I could escape
But then I finally felt the weight
Of my crimes
This is passion, it's not love
Infatuation never ends up right
At least I won't be alone tonight
'Cause I don't want to be alone tonight

The prosecution rests
They had convincing evidence
It seems I've been deceived
So now I stand alone and wait for the first stone
To be cast upon me

My verdict has come in
It says I'm guilty for my sins this time
I thought I could escape
But then I finally felt the weight of my crimes
This is passion, it's not love
Infatuation never ends up right
At least I won't be alone tonight
'Cause I don't want to be alone tonight
If convicted, I will surely do my time

At least I won't be alone tonight
'Cause I don't want to be alone tonight

    General CommentDallas said in an interview that he wrote the song a while after he had gotten out of a 2 year relationship and that his band was getting bigger. And he didn't think women only wanted to be with him because of his accomplishments. So he was jaded with relations. And he finally realized that he was just being an asshole. That's why he wrote the song.

    General CommentSeems to me that this is about infedelity, and he is judging himself during the act itself. He knows it's wrong and he will have to face the consequences, but at least he "won't be alone tonight."

    General CommentI think its about him cheating on a loved one. And he regrets it. He knows he messed up.

    General Commentwhat about the lines 'at least I won't be alone tonight' ?

    I think he wants to find someone who really cares, and he has found them,
    but he's just in the relationship so he's not alone, for the 'passion, not love'. and so he feels like he's guilty for leading her on

    The lover feels it's love, he doesn't. but he doesn't care.

    General Commentwell maybe he's relating his music composition to a relationship. he wants love and to write a perfect song, but all he has is infatuation. he doesn't want to sell himself short

    General CommentCould it possibly be "it seems every line I write's a mess"?

    General CommentJeez, if these are the correct lyrics I was way off.
    I thought that it was 'a mess' too, and that 'I never hear that perfect sound' was 'Of what I've done, I am not proud' and also that 'Infatuation never ends up right' was 'Infatuation never ends, or pride' as in pride never ends either.
    Dunno.
