She says she's no good with words but I'm worse
Barely stuttered out,
A joke of a romantic stuck to my tongue
Weighed down with words too overdramatic
Tonight it's "it can't get much worse"
Vs. "no one should ever feel like..."

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I write them
So I need them just to get by

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

You always fold just before you're found out
Drink up it's last call
Last resort
But only the first mistake and I...

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I'll write them
So you need them just to get by

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress, love

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress (mattress, mattress)
I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me

Dance, Dance
We're falling apart to half time
Dance, Dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
Dance, this is the way they'd love
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance
Dance, Dance

    redpulse: I think that would sound better. When my little sister first heard this song, she thought it said, These are the lies we won't believe.' ;)
    But anyway. I think this song is about a guy who loves this girl and she's starting to fall out of love with him and he's doing everything in his power to hold onto her.

    ..The song is about a boy at a high school dance, who is in love with a girl, and he is afraid he's been played by her. He feels that she loves someone else, and that he's sick of playing games, and he wants her to show him if she really cares for him.

    its about poker in some scince, but to me, they should have wrote "these are the lies you love to lead" instead of "these are the lives you love to lead" just my opinion...
