These are the eyes and the lies of the taken
These are their hearts but their hearts don’t beat like ours
They burn ‘cause they are all afraid
For every one of us, there’s an army of them
But you’ll never fight alone
‘Cause I wanted you to know

That the world is ugly
But you’re beautiful to me
Well are you thinking of me now (now)?

These are the nights and the lights that we fade in
These are the words but the words aren’t coming out
They burn ‘cause they are hard to say
For every failing sun, there’s a morning after
Though I’m empty when you go
I just wanted you to know

That the world is ugly
But you’re beautiful to me
Are you thinking of me
Like I’m thinking of you?
I would say I’m sorry, though
Though I really need to go
I just wanted you to know

I wanted you to know
I wanted you to know
I’m thinking of you every night, every day

These are the eyes and the lies of the taken
These are their hearts but their hearts don’t beat like ours
They burn ‘cause they are all afraid
When mine beats twice as hard

‘Cause the world is ugly
But you’re beautiful to me
Are you thinking of me
Like I’m thinking of you?
I would say I’m sorry, though
Though I really need to go
And I just wanted you to know
That the world is ugly (I just wanted you to know)
But you’re beautiful to me (I just wanted you to know)
Are you thinking of me?

Stop your crying, helpless feeling
Dry your eyes and start believing
There’s one thing they’ll never take from you

(One day, like this
We'll never be the same
Never forever
Like ghosts in the snow
Like ghosts in the sun)

    General Commenti cant believe no ones commented (i know everyone says that) but yeah. This song is really beautiful and sad at the same time.

    I really love this band i know the 2 songs on youtube Stay and The World Is Ugly. I love them both but i hope that their new album (not the black parade is dead) isnt going to be all like this because i love that they can be like this and also adress other things. But i realize that they may sound a lot different because they are putting James Dewees(is that how u spell it) as keyboardest.

    I dont know anything about the guy but all im saying is 6 is a lot for 1 band ... but then again 6 is my favorite # O_o

    General CommentOkay, Hide From The Sun, you are a total failure. They're not "selling out". They're not writing what they're writing because they think it's what people want to hear, and they certainly don't only fit the "emo" label. They write what they write because it means something to them. They put their hearts in it so that others can feel something from it too, and that's something they can never be faulted for. They have always been honest in everything.

    General Comment*eyeroll* MCR are not selling out, people. Please... just because they're popular doesn't mean they don't deserve it or that they don't put everything they have into their music... because they do.

    There are FIVE people in MCR: Bob, Frank, Gerard, Mikey, and Ray.

    ...My Chemical Romance? Sounding like a boy band? Wow... that almost made me laugh.

    And to XxforgottenonexX: There are versions on YouTube with pretty crappy sound, but... they still work. ...and... it's Mikey, hun. Not Mickey. Mikey. Maybe it's just a spelling error you made on accident, but... *shrugs*. Just so you know.

    This song is absolutely beautiful. I'm not exactly sure of the meaning yet; there are so many versions of the lyrics, it's kind of hard to keep track.

    General CommentOne thing clear: MCR ARE NOT SELLOUTS! sellouts are when they write about strippers, making out and dancing for people who like to hear about it cuz it's "cool" and they do it for big money and dont care about their fans. MCR loves their fans, writes how their feeling and sure they do it for money, but that's not all they care about!

    I think this is a song about 2 people knowing eachother for a long time, and eventually they both start to fall in love even though the guy has liked the girl forever. But then a new guy walks into the picture and takes the girls away, leaving the old guy heartbroken, and he keeps trying to be with the girl, and she demands he leaves, so he goes away, telling her he knows he's not worthy. In the end , she regrets her decision i think, and hes like "Well YOU wanted me to go" and doesnt take her back.
