Can somebody show me
How to live that way?
'Cause it's easy
To hide your face
When everyone looks the same
Simply living
Color coded
Now that I match your look
Can everything be OK?

And I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go so quickly
And I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go so quickly

'Cause this night is for the chances
So dance around the crashes
Just to survive, to survive
'Cause these will hide and
Blood will dry
But, Baby, we're still alive
Tonight
I don't wanna fade away

Like the sultans of stories
Something to lose
When angles and demands have nothing left to prove

Well, I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go quickly
And I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go so quickly

'Cause this night is for the chances
So dance around the crash's
Just to survive, to survive
'Cause these will hide
And blood will dry
But, Baby, we're still alive
Tonight

I wanna wake up
I wanna wake up
Well I wanna wake up
I wanna wake up now

And I don't wanna fade away
Let the days go so quickly
'Cause this night is for the chances
So dance around the crash's
Just to survive, to survive
'Cause these will hide
And blood will dry
But, Baby, we're still alive
Tonight

I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go so quickly
I don't wanna fade away
Yet the days go so quickly

    Being in a car crash... Anyone who really knows automatic loveletter should know she wrote this because of one and she was afraid she was going to lose her life because how bad it was. When she recovered she relized life is short and you should live it to the fullest.

    Obviously the girl is surrounded by stereotypical people who want everyone and everything one way and she is a rebel dah

    There can be multiple meanings to this song one is:
    relationships that are "fading" people who feel as if their relationships are starting to break off and they are drifting away.

    Another can be is that juliet simms (lead singer) her career in music was starting to dwindle so this song could possibly be about her starting to "fade away" and that her "career" went by so quickly.

    I think what this song is saying is that even when you see every one going along with the crowd and being what they are not it is always best to be who you are and never give in, or to fade away into the back ground
