Drag my hand behind you like a chain behind a truck.
Sparks over your carpet while I chase you through the darkness.
Somebody's supposed to fall in love, but nobody even calls.

Somebody's supposed to tear this place apart until you find me hiding, silently I wait.
You'll be excited just to see me someday, everything's okay.

Summer and gold, throw their colors at the dark.
A mother tells her son, darling look at the sparks.
But, you hold my attention without even trying.
A beautiful reflection from firework eyes.
But, never means forever.
Desperation and hanging in the backyard at night.

Somebody's supposed to fall in love.
Tear this place apart until you find me hiding, silently I wait.
You'll be excited just to see me someday, everything's okay.

Love, don't forget to bleed so slowly.
Haunted hearts we melt over the fabric of your floor.
I'm holding her just like she's gold, but I've been running from the sun.
Oh, no, no.
And if I ever catch the ones who hurt you.
I'm hoping that God looks away this time.
So, why would I let you go?
Why would I let you go? Let you go.

Tear apart this place apart until you find me hiding, silently I wait.
You'll be excited just to see me someday, everything's okay.

    General CommentI used to drive six hours just to see this girl that I liked. She was beautiful, but didn't know it because she was from a small town. I went to her place once and it was completely empty because she was in the process of moving into another apartment. I remember making out with her in the dark in the middle of her empty carpeted floor. A lot of the lyrics are about that night. I recorded the intro to this song in our apartment in L.A. We used a lot of the original sounds from my ghetto little recording on the album.

    My OpinionIn my opinion I think the song is about a girl that he is chasing after. They aren't in love but just having a good time together. But she leaving so he's saying that someday she come back looking for him and until then he will wait <3

    General CommentI like the line, I'm holding her just like she's gold, but I've been running from the sun. it almost means to me he's trying to keep her his but he's running away from the truth which to me is that they shouldn't be together.

    General CommentMost people say its about a girl Vic liked, but when I listen to the song it sounds like he's wanting someone to love him. Like he's hiding from the possibilities of love and being hurt, but he also thinks that some should be there to bring him out of his hiding place, or fear, and show him what love is all about, and love him in return.

    My InterpretationI think that it is explaining that the person is lonely. They have been alone so long, that they feel they don't know what love feels like anymore. Like has become a boring stance, like something they can't get out of.

    "Somebody's supposed to tear this place apart until you find me hiding, silently I wait. You'll be excited just to see me someday, everything's okay."

    They're saying that someone should be there for them, realize how alone and sad they are, and help them. They feel like one day, they'll be somewhere big, maybe not relationship wise, but one day the people that sat and watched this person be alone, sad, and helpless, they'll look back and regret it. Sort of like a moral story. :)
