"The Dressing Room" as written by and David Anthony/even Schmitt....
Oh God, i already forgot your name
But a name's just a swing of letters
Put together, so clever

Oh God, i thought that i found God in your name
It's upsetting, but the setting has changed
We're never gonna be the same

If you look everybody is trying on new faces
And the ones that fit are surprisingly contagious
With a shiny new beginning we cordially invite you to
Into the dressing room

Oh God, it seems that I misplaced your secret
But i can see what it does, how it lights you up
Oh God, it seems I've had some better days
Keep it steady cause your losing the pace
We're never gonna be the same

If you look everybody is trying on new faces
And the ones that fit are surprisingly contagious
With a shiny new beginning we cordially invite you to
Into the dressing room

Don't spill your guts cause that's a mess that no one wants to clean up
This is enough, my heart is stuck, this feelings breaking me up

Don't spill your guts cause that's a mess that no one wants to clean up
This is enough, my heart is stuck, this feelings breaking me up

If you look everybody is trying on new faces
And the ones that fit are surprisingly contagious
With a shiny new beginning we cordially invite you to
Into the dressing room

    Song MeaningI think it means that how people always change their faces (personallites) and stuff and the dressing room is where everyone changes and stuff.

    My InterpretationI think that this is kind of saying that people are trying to be individual by trying on different looks and "faces", or maybe even personalities and they end up all being the same.

    Maybe something like that.

    General CommentI think that this song is talking about people being tired of who they are or wanting to be "original" and they try and be someone else. You have this "new beginning" and it will either turn out great or you will forget who you are

    General CommentI agree with the idea that it's about people trying to be someone they aren't at the moment, but the lines:

    If you look everybody here is trying on new faces,
    And the ones that fit are surprisingly contagious,

    make me think that it's more about how people try and be like other people. Like, that's what that celebrity is wearing, and s/he is famous, so I should do that. So, it's like trying on all of these designer things to become someone you aren't, which is something everyone seems to be doing nowadays.

    My Interpretationwell to me, this song could mean one of two things:
    1. its about hooking up with someone random at like a party where a bunch of people are doing it.
    "oh god i already forgot your name"
    "i thought i found god in your name (sex noises lol)"
    "keep it steady your losing the pace"

    or

    2. its about a break up
    and hes trying to tell her that hes already over her like he already forgot her name and is forgetting her secrets and the stuff he used to tell her that she used to like. and the girl wants to get back with him but he kinda doesnt want to -> "Don't spill your guts 'cos that's a mess that no one wants to clean up. Is this enough? My heart is stuck. This feeling is breaking me up." (he doesnt want her anymore)
    he literally said "breaking me up"
    and the dressing room part is that hes trying new things and getting a "shiny new beginning" after it
    and is "cordially inviting" her telling her to move on too

    i think its the second one, it sounds better

    Song MeaningI think the song is about the singer meating a girl and starting a short term relationship with her.
    He must really love her, he says they are never gonna be the same though. He wants her to change for him, so they will be. The problem is she doesn't want to change.

    He says he misplaced her secret, but he doesn't understand what people like about who the girl really is. She is loosing the pace, so she is not changing enough for him.

    He says don't spill your guts, because he doesn't think anyone will care who she is, he says his heart is stuck, because he doesn't know wether to stay with her or not.
