Here it is again
Yet it stings like the first time
Seems it never ends
Double nickels on your dime
I thought we were friends
I guess it just depends who you ask
These feelings tend to leave me
With a hole in my chest
A hole a hole in my chest
Yeah a hole, a hole in my chest

Now the time has come
I just wish I could erase
All the damage done to your name
And your keepsakes
It's only just begun, it's been fun
We were blind, deaf, and dumb
There's a party in my closet
Calling all skeletons
All skele, all skeletons
Calling all...

Where did you go
Once lights went black?
Look what's become of me
I've grown to love your disappearing acts
Do one more pretty please

Now the time has come
I just wish I could erase
All the damage done, all this pain
All this heartache
It's only just begun, it's been fun
We were fucked up and numb
There's a killer on the corner
And he's looking for love
He's loo-looking for love
Yeah he's looking for...

Where did you go
Once lights went black?
Look what's become of me
I've grown to love your disappearing acts
Do one more pretty please

And to tell you the truth
I lost my faith in you
(You've gotta stop sneaking off on me)
And these unspoken lies appear at the worst times
(You've gotta stop sneaking off on me)
They're hiding just behind your eyes

Where did you go
Once lights went black?
Look what's become of me
I've grown to love your disappearing acts
Do one more pretty please

Where did you go
Once lights went black?
You nearly gave us heart attack
We thought you might have swam off to sea
You've gotta stop sneaking off on me
You've gotta stop sneaking off on me

    It means someone like an ex girlfriend came back into his life
    but it's not the first time and that perticular ex girlfriend was the one
    he truly loved and cared about but she comes in and out tence
    "you gotta stop sneaking up on me" and "I've come to love your disappearing act"
    Because she comes in and he feels as if she comes and he feels like the
    first time he laid eyes on her, but of course she gets up and walks away.
    And he is not sure why she is doing this and she is just a skeleton in his closet and that is how I interpert it.
