I think I've seen every star in the sky tonight
removed from the city lights, has never seemed so bright
I know I shouldn't believe a word you say.
I do anyway, cause I'm dumb like that.

And all the words I've given to you
When you smiled I thought that it meant something else.
You were just being yourself, being nice,
you're always rather polite to me.

You let me down again, when you ignored the things I said to you
If I was scared of you then maybe I could leave
and if I walked away right now,
there would be nothing left for me to lose but doubt.

I Never fell so far for anyone before, never again I swore,
With you hope was restored. You Make me feel like I've been torn apart
I don't like that at all. I've lost control

And all the words I've given to you, I poured my heart out into an empty
coffee
cup, you drank it up, & left me here to drown, alone.
You let me down again, when you ignored the things I said to you.
If I was scared of you, then maybe I could leave.
Cause if I walked away right now, there would be nothing left for me to lose
but‹I can't lose you‹I can't lose you

I think I've seen every star that I care to see,
but I don't wanna leave. It hurts when you're self deceived
I know I shouldn't believe a word you say, I do it anyway, cause I'm dumb
like
that.

And all the words I've given to you
When you smiled I thought that it meant something else.
You were just being yourself, being nice, your always rather polite to me.

You let me down again, when you ignored the things I said to you
If I was scared of you then maybe I could leave
Cause if I walked away right now, there would be nothing left for me to lose
but doubt.
but doubt, but doubt.
there's nothing left, there's nothing left
for me to lose but doubt,
there's nothing left, there's nothing left
for me to lose but doubt,
there's nothing left, there's nothing left.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl he is with and that he loves some things about her so much, but he hates some things about her at the same time, and he can't decide which over-rules about her, the good or the bad. And he is unsure if he should break up with her because of the bad, or to stay with her because of the good. Just my two cents.... -kid emo

    General Commentthis song is amazing... the way it starts off with just him and the acoustic guitar, then add the drums, then i think they switch to an electric guitar with harder drums... the way they built it up is awesome.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy that pours his heart out to the one girl he likes, and she smiles and acts kindly about it and gives him the wrong impression, when she doesn't see him in the same way. Hes 'dumb like that' becasue he thinks she actually feels something for him, then realized it hurt more for her to pretend, then for her to tell him the truth. Just my thoughs, i could be way off...

    General CommentI think its about a guy that like a girl, possibly a waitress from the coffee cup part and that she smiles at him but she smiles at everyone because she has to be polite, and he tells her but she doesn't feel the same. And he doesn't know if he should keep liking her or just get over her. Dumb like that means he thinks she likes him that's why he pours out his feelings, but she doesn't feel the same. SAD!

    General CommentThis song means sooo much to me. The Lyrics are amazing in this song. He is trying to break away from this girl and he is"dumb like that" and can't help but care about her. He thought she cared about him but she was just "being herself,being nice". Vroom is one of THE BEST bands out there rite now and I am really proud of them! Finally a local band not all about fame. I am definitely oneof their biggest fans. This is their most touching song by far!

    General Commentmy favorite vroom song. vroom kicks so much ass live. like weezergirl said, the song keeps you listening and you dont lose interest. its got so much work put into it i just love this song. i met the band too, they're also supremely sneezey (my word for cool) and they signed my vroom shirt, and i haven't washed it since because ima afraid the signatures will come out. vroom is on their way up.

    General Commentthis is the best song in the whole world. there's so much emotion put into it. the music builds up and it leaves you feeling exactly what he's singing. it's a song everyone can relate to-we all know what it's like to have loved and lost or to want something/someone you can never have.
