There is no hope for you and me
'Cause this long drive might be
The last time I take the wheel
You're not sure how you feel



I think the spotlight
Always gives you stage fright
I wish this all would end right
I wish that you would stop
Making my head spin



Over and over
It's over but what
If we just pretend



You'll play the love
And baby I'll play the lead
So strike a pose and fake a smile

You're coming with me
I'll strum my guitar
'Cause girl I know how you are
You're just a little bit camera shy
But you're still a star



This isn't right you said
It takes some time you know
Let's try again tonight
This fight is getting old



You're young but
Old enough to build up
Falling walls and false love
I wish this all would end



The camera's on tonight
We're gonna pick it up slowly
Can I hear your voice
What a perfect story
Can I pick you up
You could be my star
Now the spotlight's on
Move close for the final scene

    General CommentHmm... why am I the second person to comment on this song? Don't a lot of people know this song?

    I think this song is about a girl and a guy who are in love. It's pretty obvious. Well, DUH.

    Now... off to My Chemical Romance.

    General CommentFor this song, I'm picturing a guy and girl who both feel like their relationship is dying and they are probably going to break up soon. But they planned a special event with a lot of people, maybe a family celebration, and he doesn't want to show that anything is wrong. So he is asking her to fake a smile and pose for the family pictures. Then maybe he's hoping that they might grow closer again
