Do you memorize theatrical lines
That seem to lead them in
Play the role with a good girl heart
Hide the tangled webs within

Who was it that led you on
And makes you want to hurt me so
Who do you want to forget
Who forgot you long ago

Do you still feel him
Calling in the air tonight
Do you still feel it
Seems like you've done this before

You make breaking hearts look so easy
(Seems like you've done this before)
You've got breaking hearts all but down
(And you've done this, you've done this before)

You make stealing hearts look so easy
(Where is the girl I adore?)
You've got breaking up all but down
(And I can't love a thief anymore)

Do you collect the souls you've lost
In the top of your dresser drawer
Count the number of tears displaced
On lonely bedroom floors

A machine where your heart once was
Slowly takes the place of you
Only hold the memories now
Of a love I thought I knew

Do you still feel him
Calling in the air tonight
Do you still feel it
Seems like you've done this before

You make breaking hearts look so easy
(Seems like you've done this before)
You've got breaking hearts all but down
(And you've done this, you've done this before)

You make stealing hearts look so easy
(Where is the girl I adore)
You've got breaking up all but down
(And I can't love a thief anymore)

You make breaking hearts look so easy
You've got breaking hearts all but down

You make breaking hearts look so easy
(Seems like you've done this before)
You've got breaking hearts all but down
(And you've done this, you've done this before)

The best you could hope to be is
Now just a bittersweet memory
And you make breaking hearts look so easy

    General CommentWow, I really like this song.
    As far as the song meaning goes, pretty obvious. Some girl broke this guy's heart and he's basically saying she does it with ease like she's a pro at it.

    General CommentThis song's pretty catchy. I'm not sure if it's just me, but there's fewer verses in Anberlin's new CD, and instead there are more choruses. Breathe only has a couple of different lines...
    Maybe it is just me.

    Easy meaning. Boy likes girl. A lot. Girl suddenly breaks up with boy. Boy is sad.

    General CommentA girl was once hurt by someone else and she's been using guys and breaking their hearts ever since.

    He's singing about how she's so good at it by now too.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are
    "Do you you still feel HIM
    calling in the AIR tonight."
