There's no second chances
No time for romances, oh
No consequence weighing
His heart left decaying, oh
He's lost in his thinking
Disguised by his drinking, oh
No regret or bawling
No well-wishers calling, oh

And when he sleeps, I hope he's okay
And when he drinks, he hits on you
And when he sleeps, I know he's okay
'Cause when he dreams, he's someone new

The pain of desire
Is quenched by the fire, oh
No inkling of caring
He's grief-stricken, staring, oh
No bloodloss or feeling
The smoke hits the ceiling, oh
He sips down his sorrow
And prays no tomorrow, oh

And when he sleeps, I hope he's okay
And when he drinks, he hits on you
And when he sleeps, I know he's okay
'Cause when he dreams, he's someone new

I love you, Alexander [x4]
We'll be together forever.

It's all for love [x11]
It's all for

And when he sleeps, I hope he's okay
And when he drinks, he hits on you
And when he sleeps, I know he's okay
'Cause when he dreams, he's someone knew

No hearing her laughter
Here in the hereafter, oh
He's handsome, well-spoken
His heart can't be broken, oh

Goodnight, Alexander

    General CommentI think sometimes people read too much into this stuff. I think it means exactly what she says. It's about a boy named Alexander who's a burn victim. He used to be handsome and now hes grusomely disfigured. Now the girls he used to get turn away from him in horror and he knows he'll never be loved or liked and its killing him inside. It hurts his family to see him like this so they don't visit him. His friends stopped coming by. No ones there to comfort him and tell him everythings going to be ok. So he drinks to forget his pain. And at the end he kills himself cause he can't take it anymore. The pain, the stares, the emptyness. And I think Jessica is a Guardian Angel watching over him. I'll explain it....
    There's no second chances / He can't change what happened to him
    No time for romances / And because of the way he looks he'll never find or be loved
    No consequence weighing / Theres nothing he can do
    His heart left decaying / And he's dying inside from the pain
    He's lost in his thinking / Hes hurting from the memories of what used to be... and is lost in what will never be
    Disguised by his drinking / So he drinks to forget his pain and being disfigured
    No regret or bawling / He has no regrets for what hes doing to himself cause it takes everything away
    No well-wishers calling / His friends and family won't come to visit him to help him through and tell him everythings going to be ok

    And when he sleeps, I hope he's okay / Shes looks down from Heaven and she hopes he going to be ok
    And when he drinks, he hits on you / Cause he gets drunk he hits on girls which only makes matters worse
    And when he sleeps, I know he's okay / She know that the only time hes happy is when hes sleeping
    'Cause when he dreams, he's someone new / Cause when he dreams he's handume and has eveything he desires

    The pain of desire / Its killing him that he can't have a girl to love him
    Is quenched by the fire / It makes him even more angry and lost
    No inkling of caring / No one even shows a remote interest of caring for him
    He's grief-stricken, staring / He stares around hopeless at the happy couples and familys knowing that he'll never have that
    No bloodloss or feeling / He takes some medicine that numbs his pain
    The smoke hits the ceiling / He looks at the rest of the pills with apethtic apeal as he smokes a cigaerte
    He sips down his sorrow / So he drinks down all the pills
    And prays no tomorrow / And prays that he'll never wake up

    I love you, Alexander
    We'll be together forever. / Shes looking down thinking don't worry you'll be loved when you die

    It's all for love / He killed himself for the pain of love

    No hearing her laughter / He won't be tormented anymore
    Here in the hereafter / He's in Heaven
    He's handsome, well-spoken / There he looks like he did before handsume, charming
    His heart can't be broken / He can no longer be hurt by the world

    General CommentI think this song is just about how a guy cant get a girl. The song title can be interpreted as just Alexander,this guy that no girl wants.He's handsome, yet unappealing,maybe his attitude is horrible.He gets drunk and hits on girls. And yet rejection doesnt phase him.

    General CommentThis song has always kind of struck me being about a guy who's a really bad alcoholic/drug addict. Maybe Jessicka's singing as someone who really cares about him but feels he doesn't care because he's always intoxicated. Something like that. But that's just my opinion.

    General Comment^ i love you, really
    i don't understand how anyone could think the song was about anything other than what you just said
    not every song has some hidden message

    General Commentyeah I agree with HalfBloodPrinse, but you can also look at it as a story of a guy thats alcoholist and his gf, Jessicka, has to constantly face him when he's drunk... and even though he lost his hope for a better time ("prays no tomorrow"), she still hopes he gets better, and even though he abuses her ("And when he drinks, he hits on you") she still loves him (hence the "we'll be together forever... I love you Alexander" and all that). Yeah thats basically what I wanted to say.

    after all, thats the beauty of music- everyone looks at it the way they want to... theres no one concrete message you get from it.
