These are the eyes and the lies of the taken
These are their hearts but their hearts don’t beat like ours
They burn, cuz’ they are all afraid, for everyone of us
There’s an army of them, but you’ll never fight alone
Cuz’ I wanted you to know

That the world is ugly,
But you’re beautiful to me
Well are you thinking of me, now? (now)

These are the nights and the lights that we fade in
These are the words, but the words aren’t coming out
They burn cuz’ they are hard to say
For every failing sun, there’s a morning after
Though I’m empty when you go
I just wanted you to know

That the world is ugly, but you’re beautiful to me
Are you thinking of me?
Like I’m thinking of you?
I would say I’m sorry though, though I really need to go
I just wanted you to know
I wanted you to know
I wanted you to know
I’m thinking of you
Every night, every day

These are the lies and the lives of the taken
These are the hearts but their hearts don’t beat like ours
They burn, cuz’ they are all afraid
But mine beats twice as hard

Cuz’ the world is ugly, but you’re beautiful to me!
Are you thinking of me?
Like I’m thinking of you?
I would say I’m sorry though, though I really need to go…
I just wanted you to know
That the world is ugly, but you’re beautiful to me (I just wanted you to know)
Are you thinking of me?

Stop your crying
Helpless feeling
Dry your eyes and start believing
There’s one thing they’ll never take from you
(One day, like this, we’ll never be the same, Never, forever… like ghosts in the snow, like ghosts in the sun…)

    "Like ghosts in the snow" is mentioned in I brought you bullets, maybe they were trying to have it as a connection to that :)

    This is talking about a man and wanting to fall in love with a beautiful woman,but the world around them is ugly,making looks change and make her seem ugly on the inside,he is the beautiful one while he wishes them both to be ugly,in the end it's all heart break. She doesn't love him back like he does her,so he gives up and tells her "Your just too good,that's why i can't have you."

    Umm... I'm sorry, this song is not about ferard.
    Please go be a ferard fangirl somewhere else.

    This song is about basically a girl, who a man is in love with and thinks she is the one.
    She cheats on him with another man ( hence, are you thinking of him? ) and they break things off, but he still loves her. And he wants her to know, that although the world is an ugly place, and people don't have happy endings, and she broke his heart, he still loves her and think's she is beautiful.

    If this song is directed towards anyone it would be directed towards gerard's ex-girlfriend, eliza.

    I think this is a very sad and beautiful song, the meaning is juat that the world is an ugly place that makes feel people wrong even when they're beautiful and this guy is sorry beacuse a beautiful person doesn't understand how much beautiful is and how much means to him.
