I think it's time
We paid a little closer attention to all of this
Your sleight of hand is an old trick
And I see right through your wit

So I'll ask you
Can you keep your word?
Or is this where we go our separate ways?
Can you keep your word?
Never again will I trust what you say!

I never thought I could be so blind
Oh, but now I say
If I could go back
Do it all again
You know that I wouldn't sign my life away

You won't get away with this!
You won't get away with this!
Silent when we needed you!
You won't get away with this!
You won't get away with this!
Silent when we need you!

I was too blind to see that
You were too deaf to hear me
Just know if I could go back
This would all be different
This would all be different!

You must have mistaken me
For someone just as fake as you
You broke every promise you made!
No, I don't expect you to know what it feels like
I just want you to admit
That you are a thief
You're a thief!
You're a thief!
You're a thief!

Don't take it too hard my friend
That I feel this way
It's just that

I was too blind to see that
You were too deaf to hear me
Just know if I could go back
This would all be different
This would all be different!

Your excuses mean nothing
When nothing means more than keeping your word
Oh please
Like I haven't heard them before?
I don't think you'll ever learn

You killed the trust
All of the trust that I put in you!
You killed the trust
And I'll never trust you again!

I was too blind to see that
You were too deaf to hear me
Just know if I could go back
This would all be different

I was too blind to see that
You were too deaf to hear me
Just know if I could go back
This would all be different

    Song ComparisonThis relates to me completely. In fact, the whole album does. This was the first song I heard. Basically, (I think) this song is about having a very close relationship with someone enough to trust them. (which is a big deal for me) Then that trust suddenly brakes and apart right when you think you can start trusting again. Then, after it's all over you look back and think how blind you were and how different you would make of it. In terms of the thief, the person stole something of you that you can't ever get back. (for me it was the trust) I agree with the "sign your life away" because in a sense, I think that's what I did. I basically handed over my life, only to discover betrayal. This song is amazing. It put my emotions and feelings into words.

    General CommentI think this one is a follow up to "the unfaithful"...just kind of continuing the theme of betrayal and how he would change everything if he could go back to the beginning of the relationship.

    Song MeaningSounds to me like they are referring to their record label..
    Memphis May Fire were originally signed to Trustkill Records and the latest album has them signed to Rise Records.. "I was too blind to see that you were too deaf to hear me" is clearly a msg to the record label.. as well as "If I Could Go Back, Do It All Again, You Know That I Wouldn't sign My Life Away"

    General CommentSometimes I hate when artists say what the real meaning of a song is because it kills others interpretations but when I saw them live, Matty Mullins said the song was about an ex band member
