Oh my story is not the oldest of it's kind.
I was too touched to see you clearly,
Far too young to realize I had loved so dearly you,
Who's world I had designed,
But the sweet smoke came with mirrors
And it brought tears to my wide eyes.
Dying just to see you...
Dying since I misconstrued your blue heart,
Black eyes, feigning falling, words I won't forget.
I died right when I saw you while you shared that cigarette.

Oh I saw you every time I closed my eyes,
In the Hughes film I had scored,
Produced and starred in, in my mind.
I could recite you, well, I'd written every line...
But you strayed far from my flawless script
On which I'd spent a lifetime!
Falling over dead.
Dying since I had misread your blue heart,
Black eyes, feigning falling, words I won't forget.
I died right when I saw you while you shared that cigarette.

    I think the song is about being young and falling in love, thinking you have this perfect love and then growing up and realizing they weren't perfect, just your memories are. They "strayed far from [the] flawless script" that you anticipated. The name, however, is a reference to winona ryder's character in heathers.

    is this song about him being disapointed in her? He kinda sounds like a dad, because dads almost never want their child to smoke
