Swimming in the dark, we're bound to drift apart
And I just can't go on, pretending we're in love
We play with matches in the rain but never learn
We try to light it but the fire never burns

You thought that love was just a casting call
But it's our turn to quit before the curtain falls

Don't need to pretend to love me
You don't need to pretend to want me
You don't need to pretend to need me
We just never were meant to
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?
Lost my mind?

Now I dance around her heart, like an actor plays the part
I hit the stage and I get blinded by the light
I read the script, but I just can't recite the lines

You thought that love was just a casting call
But it's our turn to quit before the curtain falls

Don't need to pretend to love me
We just never were meant to ever be
You don't need to pretend to love me
We just never were meant to
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?

You thought that love was just a casting call
But it's our turn to quit before the curtain falls

Don't need to pretend to love me
You don't need to pretend to want me
You don't need to pretend to need me
We just never were meant to
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?

Don't need to pretend to love me
We just never were meant to ever be
You don't need to pretend to love me
We just never were meant to
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?
So get on with your life 'cause we're just wasting time
Am I wrong? Am I right or have I lost my mind?

    Song MeaningThis song is about a relationship where the guy is crazy for a girl who pretends to care, but she doesn't, despite the fact that this guy is crazy for the girl. After this going for a while, the guy starts to catch on, and ultimately decides to end the relationship, even though he is still in love with this girl.

    This song means a lot to me, and I think lot's of guys who aren't total jerks (such as myself) can relate to this song.
    Billy Talent, you helped me get over a girl that didn't hesitate to leave for someone else
