"The Balcony Scene" as written by and Victor Vincent/fuentes Fuentes....
Don't react when I tell you
Don't react when I tell you
That bright lights mean nothing to you
Because no one would know
The sound of a ghost
And I might be something to you

Beyond beautiful
Is the sound of a ghost
Can we lose our minds
And call it love for the last time
My darling never rest
Until the darker gets
The best of all we had
Can the cold carry on

When the light means nothing to you
Then no one would know
The sound of a ghost
And I might be perfect with you
But no one would know
So tell me, tell me

Have you ever really danced on the edge
Is something still scaring you
Have you ever really danced on the edge
The count of three is up
Have you ever really danced on the edge
Alright then tell me so
Have you ever really danced on the edge
Just hold my hand and jump
And bright lights mean nothing to you
Because no one would know

The sound of a ghost
Oh, no one would know
The sound of a ghost

    General CommentI think this song is about a boy named peter and a young women named Katie who is beyond beautiful. they both like eachother a lot and although peter was scared of something at first(unsure of what). this song made him realize that he needs to "dance on the edge" and let go of his fears because he could be perfect with katie, but would never know if he didnt tell her he wants to be her boyfriend now. he is sincerely sorry he hasnt been much of a boyfriend so far but he is going to strive to be the most perfect guy possible.


    Katie, i really do like you and i really am sorry.
    i don't know what i was afraid of.
    i hope that you forgive me.
    i hope that you allow me to prove to you that i will no longer let my fears get the best of me.
    i want to talk to you.
    Katie, please give me a second chance...

    General CommentI think that this song is about suicide ((for obvious reasons))... but I also think that it is about Romeo and Juliet.

    Just look at the title 'The Balcony Scene', arguable one of the most important scenes in the entire play.

    Continuing along the lines of suicide... Romeo and Juliet commit suicide in the play.

    And how about the line 'Can we lose our minds
    And call it love for the last time' Romeo and Juliet aren't really in love, it's just crazy teenage lust that makes them lose their minds and do things they wouldn't do otherwise , but they call it love and it is the last time they ever get to do this because they die.

    Haha or maybe I'm just crazy, but this is the connection I made XD

    General Commentthis song is probably my favorite by them. i love to slow dance to it :)
    i think this song is about him loving a girl & wanting to be with her so bad, & although she loves him & wants to be with him too, she's afraid to take that next step with him because she has been scarred by past relationships that went wrong.

    when he says
    "And i might be something to you,
    beyond beautiful."

    i think he's telling her she should let go of her fears & take that chance with him because they could end up being just what the other one needs & having a really great, beautiful relationship.

    and when he says
    "And i might be perfect with you.
    But no one would know."
    he's saying how if she doesn't take that chance of being with him they'll never know what could've been, & most likely end up missing out on something great.

    As for my FAVORITE part, the part where he says
    "Have you ever really danced on the edge?
    Is something still scaring you?
    Have you ever really danced on the edge?
    The count on 3 its on...
    Have you ever really danced on the edge?
    Alright then tell me so...
    Have you ever really danced on the edge?
    Just hold my hand and go..."

    i think dancing on the edge is a metaphore for doing something daring that could cause u to get hurt. and "is something still scaring you" is him asking her if she's still scared that what happened to her in the past will happen again. and by saying "The count on 3 its on..." & "Just hold my hand and go..." he's saying it's time to let go of her fears & be with him.*

    General Commentyou have 99% of the lyrics right, but a few words are off. which if you're really reading into the song.. makes a difference.
    Vic posted the lyrics on the band's myspace.



    Don't react when I tell you
    And Don't react when I tell you
    That bright lights mean nothing to you
    Because no one would know
    The sound of a ghost
    And I might be something to you
    Beyond beautiful
    Is the sound of a ghost
    Can we lose our minds
    And call it love for the last time
    My darling never rest
    Until the darker gets
    The best of all we had
    Can the cold carry on
    When the light means nothing to you
    Then no one would know
    The sound of a ghost
    And I might be perfect with you
    But no one would know
    So tell me, tell me
    Have you ever really danced on the edge
    Is something still scaring you
    Have you ever really danced on the edge
    The count of three is up
    Have you ever really danced on the edge
    Alright then tell me so
    Have you ever really danced on the edge
    Just hold my hand and jump
    And bright lights mean nothing to you
    Because no one would know
    The sound of a ghost
    Oh, no one would know
    The sound of a ghost

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONGGG.
    I think its about a relationship too, about a guy inlove with a girl and he wants to be with her iand shes afraid.

    and call it love for the last time?
    My darling never rests,
    until the darker it gets,



    (Its going to get harder as he falls more in love with her)

    Have you ever really danced on the edge?
    Is something still scaring you?

    (Have you ever taken a chance, dont be afraid)
