A flash to fly the darkness
A smile to light the room
And candlelight is all they need
To love

When everything's a mystery
And every little freckle is a work of art
She doesn't have a history
And he says nothing wrong

Not another lie
Now she's getting kinda lonely
Starting to forget the way they were

One more secret smile
Now it's started and she's angry
He's not there, and she's not listening

Now talking of appreiciation
Flowers at her door
One more call to make it right
Then an answer, she's heard it all before

Now a pillar drives a sorrow
The wall denies his fear
So they wait until tomorrow
But these candles burn too long

Not another lie
Now she's getting kinda lonely
Starting to forget the way they were

One more secret smile
Now it's started and he's angry
She's not there, and he's not listening

Not another lie
Now she's getting kinda lonely
Starting to forget the way they were

One more secret smile
Now it's started and he's angry
Cause you're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening
You're not here, and I'm not listening

    General Commentto me this song is about a relationship and how there was a lie or a betrayal. The guy is trying to make it up to her but she feels that she cant trust him because she has been hurt too many times before.
    The guy then is shutting everything out. I really love it how at the start of the song its telling a story about someone else but by the end it is coming from the singers view. such a powerful and meaningful song. I LOVE IT! what does anyone else think??
