"Made Up Stories" as written by James Matthews, Josh Wilkinson and Zack Wilkinson....
Please won't you go back out
I'm fast asleep
Can't deal with this no more
On your way out please do
Turn off the light
And close the door too

Don't come back and pretend to tell me
The night you've had with your made up stories
I was there but you didn't see me
There you were and the floor was empty
You and him getting more than friendly
[It] was just a kiss, but I could see you meant it

I'd brought your favourite coat
I know how cold you get and you'd left it
And standing out of view
I just had to leave
'cause of what I'd have done to you

So don't come back and pretend to tell me
The night you've had with your made up stories
I was there but you didn't see me
There you were and the floor was empty
You and him getting more than friendly
[It] was just a kiss, but I could see you meant it

The saddest thing for me
Was I trusted you, yeah, endlessly
So now, the innocence you played
Just go save it for the other guy I've seen

Don't come back and pretend to tell me
The night you've had with your made up stories
I was there but you didn't see me
There you were and the floor was empty
You and him getting more than friendly
[It] was just a kiss, but I could see you meant it

So don't come back and pretend to tell me
The night you've had with your made up stories
I was there but you didn't see me
Don't come back and pretend to tell me
The night you've had with your made up stories
I was there but you didn't see me
There you were and the floor was empty
You and him getting more than friendly
[It] was just a kiss, but I could see you meant it

    General CommentI don't get why in the video, his girlfriend's alone with the other bloke and more than kissing, but in the song it's sweet and more subtle, because it was "just a kiss", but he realized it meant much more to her than that, plus "the floor was empty" gives me the idea she was at a bar or a dance/disco or something.

    General CommentI'm guessing the meaning is that he's seen his girlfriend with another guy at a party and then left. She comes home and triesto tell him lies and he confronts her.
    But as said before, it is pretty obvious.
    Love this song ^^

    General Commenti took "the floor was empty" to mean that they were like on a bed kissing. cos then its still just a kiss, but not like a little peck, a proper kiss, that she meant to do.

    love this band, they were awesome live =)

    General CommentI guess the meaning is rather blatant, the guys above seemed to have hit the nail on the head.

    I do love this song, the 'you and him getting more than friendly' bit especially. And i love how he sounds so English; makes me feel proud to be British. =]
