Are you lonesome tonight
Chasing hours with wine
If it's drama you wanted you know darling you got it
It's what we do best always dressed to impress
Try to cover it in make up but there's no hiding this mess

Remember love and how we used to be in it
She said she won't she's trying hard to forget it
Remember lust and how a touch gave us shivers
I can't get close to you your skin gives me slivers

You don't care enough to cry
There's nothing real left in your eyes
No fairy tales no lullabies
I'm only asking this of you one time

May I have this dance before the moment's past
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of key
But you're just not happy being miserable with me

The mirror ball fell to the floor between us
So we can see how pathetic we look in a thousand little pieces
So watch your step for the next three minutes
I'm not giving up on you until this song is finished

Remember love and all the ways that we'd make it
We lost the passion when did you start to fake it
Remember lust and how a touch gave us shivers
I can't get close to you your skin gives me slivers

You don't care enough to cry
There's nothing real left in your eyes
No fairy tales no lullabies
I'm only asking this of you one time

May I have this dance before the moment's past
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of key
But you're just not happy being miserable with me

The way you look tonight
The way you can't look me right in the eye
I've never seen a smile so wide
I've never seen a smile so contrived
I know that you would rather be anywhere but here with me

May I have this dance before the moments passed
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of tune
Just know I was happy being miserable with you

May I have this dance before the moments passed
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of tune
Just know I was happy being miserable with you

May I have this dance before the moments passed
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of tune
Just know I was happy being miserable with you

    General CommentThe real lyrics for the end of the song are;
    May I have this dance because the moments passing
    I aget this song and it's just not lastings
    I'll scream in your ear off time and out of tune
    Just know I was happy being misrable with you

    I am right now lost on what the meaning of the song is.

    Right now I'm thinking its about Jesse trying to get this girl, but not completely sure now.
