She's got all my dreams
I've got these broken things
And they always disagree
But if there's one real thing you would choose to believe
Just don't lose your faith in me

She's got broken things where her heart should be
And I keep rolling them over in my head
Make my voice brand new
I'll give it all to you
And I'll never speak again

Lord, I've been trading places with the ghost in me
And it's starting to make me sick
But if there's one real thing I could choose to believe
Just a little hope would do the trick
(A little hope would do the trick)

She's got broken things where her heart should be
But I can tell there are moments when I'm really getting through
Make my voice brand new
I'll give it all to you
And I'll never speak again

She'll be in magazines
With all her fancy things
And all the boys will dream
If you think this was easy
You're wrong.

Oh, oh, oh
And now it's time
(Oh, oh, oh)
Let me see a smile
Let me see it.
Oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh.

She's got broken things where her heart should be
And I keep rolling it over in my head
If your heart is true then I'll be with you
Cause it's you that I adore
And we both know I loved you more.

    Song MeaningThis song is, to me, about the same woman in One Man Drinking Games. Only this is their relationship now, and OMDG was about their last night together before he/she left.

    "She's got all my dreams
    I've got these broken things"
    He only has his dreams (being in a band, never being home, always on tour) to give to her, and she only has broken things (her heart, that he broke in One Man Drinking Games when he left) to give to him. So, essentially, they give each other their all...but their all isn't much to give to each other.

    "If you think this was easy
    You're wrong."
    On track with OMDG, where he claims "Knowing that for someone you're an angel sent to save" and he drinks to that, knowing she'll be happy, or at least be with someone that isn't him.

    ("May I say I loved you more?")
    "And we both know I loved you more."
    Yeah. You tell her. Even though you broke her heart, ya jerk.

    HOWEVER....One Man Drinking Games was a fictional song, so I'm assuming this one is too. Nice tie backs to it, regardless.
