Shooting daggers at me
Letting it be known you're not impressed
I never fail at failing all your tests
Don't be so proud
'Cause you're still so scared to be alone
You can't change your mind!

You won't embrace this
But you accept it
You can't let go!

Broken stars
By a single shattered mirror
Seven years of trust
I know you'll never change for anyone
A gold heart never rusts!

My mind's made up!
And I'll know I'll do the right thing
Get up and stand tall!
My mind's made up!
Why am I scared, I won't be able
To get up when I fall!

We cast a single shadow for so long now
It's so hard to see the sun at all! (The sun at all!)
But you need light to see
The writing on the wall!

My mind's made up!
And I'll know I'll do the right thing
Get up and stand tall!
My mind's made up!
Why am I scared, I won't be able
To get up when I fall...

...into the hole I've made,
I brace myself alone.
I'll find the strength within myself
To climb out on my own. Own!

My mind's made up! (Made up!)
And I'll know I'll do the right thing
Get up and stand tall!
My mind's made up (Made up!)
Why am I scared, I won't be able
To get up when I fall!

These broken stars
Can be put back in the sky!
I can still feel your scars!
I won't, I won't let you die!
We won't, we won't fade away!
And now we will
Set this all ablaze!

    General Commentthere's a couple mistakes, let me point them out
    it's "a gold heart never rusts" instead of "i'll go hard, never lost"

    and "and now we will set this all ablaze" instead of "right now right now see this on the glass"

    sorry if i'm picky but i have the cd booklet right in front of me,

    General Commentgood job...only parts that need a change

    Shooting daggers at me
    Letting it be known you're not impressed
    I never fail at failing all your tests
    Don't be so proud
    'Cause you're still so scared to be alone
    You ::can't:: change your mind!

    You won't embrace this
    ::But:: you accept it
    You can't let go!

    My InterpretationMy guess is that the guy has made up his mind about leaving his wife after discovering shes been cheating on him.

    "We cast a single shadow for so long now
    It's so hard to see the sun at all! (The sun at all!)
    But you need light to see
    The writing on the wall!"

    He realizes that, once they became separated, its obvious to him, or he sees the "writing on the wall", that they were never really meant to be and they never got along very well in the first place, and its actually for the better.

    General CommentI think he wants to step up to her and end the relationship because he knows that she cheated on him...but he can't pull it together too. At the end of the song, he decides not to step up and just try to move on and deal with the relationship even though it still pains him.

    idk, just my two cents.

    General CommentCorrection!

    Broken stars
    By a single shattered mirror
    Seven years of trust
    I know you'll never change for anyone
    :: A gold heart never rusts ::
    My mind's made up!



    I've seen it like this too

    :: A cold heart never rusts ::


    but that doesn't make sense, cause when you think about it GOLD doesn't rust. haha sorry, this was bothering me because every lyric website has something different from what the line actually is.
