Just like a dream....

She called me kinda late last night.
Said that she knew everything
and all those pretty little words came out.

And just like I planned,
she fell into my arms again,
and I could pretend that I would lie with her forever
and wait for the end.

You're right, you're right, we should be together.
Tonight, tonight, I could make it better
if I just gave up on my stupid little fantasy world.

You're right, you're right, that was a fake smile
and you're right, you're right,
I am in denial.
I should just go home to my perfect little fantasy girl.
You're my fantasy girl.

Just like I said...
she crept back up inside my bed.
Said that she missed everything
and all those words that made me fall came out.
Just like a trap, everything just fell right back
and we were on track. And I could lie with her all night now
and wait to react.

    General CommentI might be way off, and the ideas above are good, but....

    I feel like this song is about how he doesn't really want to be with this girl, but he's settling for her because, apparently, he thinks she is the best girl he'll ever be able to get, but he still isn't happy being with her.

    In the first verse, his ex (they probably just recently broke up) calls him upset because she found out that he has already been screwing around (or something) with other girls. He sweet talks her into getting back together with him because the new girls he's meeting aren't as good as his ex and he's afraid that she's the best girl he can get. But, when they get back together he realizes that he isn't happy with her; he's trying to convince himself that he's happy.

    In the chorus, the line "you're right... we should be together" definitely implies that she wants them to be together more than he does. He wants to go out and find someone new and better, but he isn't having any luck, so he figures that he might as well go back to her. The whole second half of the chorus is saying that he's in denial and trying to tell himself that she's his fantasy girl, but she definitely isn't.

    The second verse when he says "just like a trap" implies that he's stuck with her and everything is back to the way it used to be with them together, but he doesn't have any feelings for her. He's numb to it all and he's hoping to feel emotion; he's "waiting to react."

    I'm definitely reading personal experience into this one, but that's what this song makes me think of. There are definitely too many references to fake emotions for this to actually be talking about how this girl is really everything he wants.

    General Comment^^ agree. He has what he always thought he wanted. But its never as good as he imagined/imagines. Hes explaining how his high expectations always let him down. Hence "If i just give up on my stupid little fantasy world". Pretty good song,,, almost too relatable.

    Song MeaningThis song is about realizing that what you really want and need has been right in front of you the whole time, I know I know uber cliche but it's true.

    General Commenti have to disagree.

    "And just like I planned,
    she fell into my arms again,
    and I could pretend that I would lie with her forever
    and wait for the end.

    You're right, you're right, we should be together.
    Tonight, tonight, I could make it better
    if I just gave up on my stupid little fantasy world."

    these two verses, to me, are a dead give away that this song is about a guy who hasnt given up on a girl yet..she comes back and they're doing everything he imagined they would..except he doesnt really want it anymore. he's living in the fantasy world he made for the two of them but its not whats best or what should be.

    "You're right, you're right, that was a fake smile
    and you're right, you're right,
    I am in denial.
    I should just go home to my perfect little fantasy girl.
    You're my fantasy girl."

    again, its just saying that this girl isn't really what he thought it would be. he wants to go home to the fantasy world he made as opposed to living in the real world with her because his fantasy world had things worked out much more perfect.
