    My chemical romance is just feeling older and out of style according to stars nowadays. And to live how you want to. Do what you dream. Live your life fully. And music is such a pure thing that it makes you slow down and feel real for a moment its a beautiful thing. And dont strive to be somebody your not. Live life.

    My interpretacion of the song:
    two friends are growing apart because of not being allowed to talk, but secretly they can see each other & their friendship will "live forever in the lights you make" and now they can "be the kids from yesterday" or the best friends they used to be.

    "you only live forever in the lights you make"
    you only "live on" if you've made a point across to the world. Once you're dead and everyone who knows you are dead, then no one will know who you were. Unless, you make a point and somehow the world remembers you years after you've died
    "when we were young we used to say"
    when they were young, obviously that means when they were young. "that you only hear the music when your heart begins to break"
    the first time you truely understand the depth of music and feel like someone understands you out there, that's when you've had heart broken. "now we are the kids from yesterday"
    now they are older and they are just of the past.

    I think this song is about living life. Living life and never looking back, because you never know what's going to happen next. This song is for every single killjoy out there, whether you're just an outcast and a reject, or whether you're the person that everyone loves... This is about being whoever you are, no matter what, and being totally fearless about it. That's just what i think- and yeah, i know, i just practically said like three gee quotes... But no one can really explain these things better than him.

    It makes me cry because i think of all my friends that are now 200 miles away since i moved and this reminds me of all the fun i used to have with them. My chemical romance are truly amazing talented people who can make me laugh cry and get goose bumbs all in the space of 5 minutes. If it wasn't for them, god knows where i would be right now. If i ever met them all i would be able to say is thank you, you saved my life..
