Every little beat of your heart
You get a little closer to me
You've never been so happy since I've been around
I don't want to tear your world apart
But that's how it's going to be
Your heads in the sky but I'm on the ground

Words come slow to me
Silence easily
But the world spins round and round
My heart is breaking
The mess I'm making

Every little beat of your heart
You're painting a picture of me
You put me on a pedestal I can't climb down
Every little beat of my own
Takes me further from you
I've run out of heaven and I'm closing down

There's an actor in this town
And he follows you around
He gets his line right every time
But his heart is breaking
He's tired of faking

    My crush just sent this song to me and told me to listen to it and i get it. I get what he means now. He means that he's not who i think he is and he's worried about me because he doesn't want me to fall for him because he thinks i can do better and he doesn't want to fake that everything's okay anymore because he said he was sad because he likes me but doesn't want me to like him because i can do better. But i cant

    He is tired of pretending, he knows she loves him. But he is just inevitably drifting away. "every little beat of your heart your painting a picture of me... But every little beat of my heart takes me further from you" maybe because of another person but he just doesn't love her and he just can't fake it. I too know exactly how he feels, this song makes my heart drop because the meaning is so close to me.

    Its about how hes been such a romantic his lover put him on "a pedestal", but the excessively perfect "boyfriend" style personality he's been projecting is really just an act he's done for her to make her happy. So he goes on to say hes run out of an heaven and closing down along with him being the actor thats tire of faking, he means hes tired of faking this projection and he's done. I know exactly how he feels...
