Watching the moon moving to the ocean floor
Standing on the neighbor's lawn
It's four AM on Friday
All night long I'm dreaming of your loving arms
I'm staring at the fading stars
And waiting for your call

But every time I think about you
I get fucked up
I feel like all the stars are falling
Inside my heart
Inside my heart

Gone are the days
Staring through the window pane
To eyes that won't wash away
The rain
But now we're alone
Two lights along a distant shore
A loving life that leads us home away from wasted days

But every time I think about you
I get fucked up
I feel like all the stars are falling
Inside my heart
Inside my heart

No more waiting for the days
The place that we can run away
And we can have a drink
But now we're moving on

And every time I think about you
I get fucked up
I feel like all the stars are falling
Inside my heart
Inside my heart
Inside my heart
Inside my heart

    General Commentthis song got me hooked on the band.

    pretty much , to me, its about a guy who got broken up with and is devistated and realizes he has to move on and accepts it.

    General Comment*puke*
    I think Chris gave up on writing lyrics. How does "I feel like all the stars are falling inside my heart" even begin to compare to something like "you've become a ghost, you're floating somewhere in between the waking world and a landscape of dreams"?

    I love Saves the Day to death, and I like the new album, but Chris' lyrical genius peaked at In Reverie. Under the Boards is filled with shallow, cliché, literal verses that pale in comparison to the deep, sorrowful, metaphoric lyrics of previous works. It's difficult to listen to this album knowing how utterly sublime StD *can* be.

    General Commenti dunno why this guy is puking. i'd actually forgotten about saves the day, for the longest time. i heard this song and i realized how strong that vocal melody is, especially for the chorus. i think that this chris guy's pop sensibility is spot on, especially in this song. i'll have to listen to the rest of the album, now.

    General CommentI use to listen to saves the day years back and this song reminded me how grand they are.

    General CommentThe new album definitely highlights their musical ability and Chris' ability to sing.

    It does not, however, highlight his skill for composing lyrics. His lyrics used to be haunting, metaphorical, and transcendent. On this album they are simply literal.
