It would be so nice to take you
I only ever try to make you smile
No matter what we're gonna keep you occupied
But only at your place
Only at your place

It would be no price to pay
I only ever lie to make you smile
All kinds of dust are gonna keep me satisfied
But only at your place
Only at your place

Tonight a special memory serves me
And I'll wait to find the wrong way
Tonight a special memory serves me
And I'll wait to find

It's over
It's over
I feel like, the feeling is like
It's over

Why is it so hard to stay away?

Tonight a special memory serves me
And I'll play to find that I'm gray
Tonight is special
I only memorize those dates I deny
And I forget why it'll sing
We'll seize the day

You don't have to say that you'd love to
But baby please that you'd want to
Someday

It would be no price to pay
We began this our way
It would be no price to pay

You don't have to say that you'd love to
But baby please that you'd want to
Someday
You don't have to say that you'd love to
But baby please that you'd want to
Someday
You don't have to say that you'd love to
But baby please that you'd want to
Someday

    General CommentI think Success is about an adultary relation and that this song follows it.
    His wife discovered his treatchery and he is supposed to have ended his relationship with the other woman, but he’s unable to do so, so they keep on seeing but only at her place not to be seen (« It would be so nice to take you » out ?). His lover knows he has cheated on her too(« I only lied to make you smile ») and she can’t keep on like that so she ends it up and it’s their last night together. He doesn’t want to think about it so he remembers a special memory from the time they were fine together.
    At the end, he clings to his hope and tries to convince her to see him again that way « you don’t have to say that you’d love to, but baby please that you’d want to someday ».

    General Commentthis song to me sounds like its about a person literally feeding off of his mistress's love to the borderline of paranoia that he'll lose her for the strong love he has for her."again jus my opinion"
    & to the ones who wanted to know this song is off their 4th album(2010)track.03 entitled their band name as the album name

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song and read the lyrics, it instantly reminded me of the relationship I had with this girl. We were dating long distance, but at the end things didnt work out. I remember how hard I would try to make her smile, because I thought that was the only way I was going to be able to make her realize how happy she could be with me. The lyric "All kinds of dust are gonna keep me satisfied
    But only at your place" resorted me back to being at her house, how we would lay in bed,listen to music, talk, kiss, have sex, watch tv, cuddle, etc. I was happy being at her place, no matter what we ended up doing. "It's over. Why is it so hard to stay away?" After we ended things, I wanted to get her out of my mind, but there she was. I knew she was talking to other people already and it killed me inside. But once she would talk to me, I couldn't resist and would talk to her as well. I knew it was over, but I couldn't stay away. "Tonight is special I only memorize those things I deny And I forget why it'll sing Seize the day" This pertains to thinking back, trying to convince myself that I was over her, but I knew I really wasn't. I would be too occupied thinking about what went wrong and why I can't get over her that I wouldn't seize the day or move on with my life. "It would be no price to pay. We began this our way" I often would think about giving into what she wanted, of being able to date each other and others, but just because somehow maybe I was going to be able to show her how happy she would be with me and just me, but thankfully I never did give into that. I know it would have been worse in the long run. "Don't have to say that you'd love to But they'd be pleased that you want to. Someday" There were times I wanted to invite her to things my friends were having or just hang out, without making it seem like I was the only one that wanted her to go, although I was. Someday meaning it didn't have to mean now or later, just eventually I guess. Eventually she would be pleased to be with me again. That's just what I got from the song..Either way, its a Beautiful song.
