Softly we tremble tonight,
Picture perfect fading smiles are all that's left in sight,
I said I'd never leave you'll never change
I'm not satisfied with where I'm at in life.

Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
You said, you said that you would die for me...

We made plans to grow old,
Believe me there was truth in all those stories that I told.
Lost in a simple game cat and mouse
Are we the same people as before this came to light?

Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
You said, you said that you would die for me...

You must live for me too'...
For me too... yeah, yeah...
You said that you would die for me...

Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
When all I ever wanted, it comes with a price
You said, you said that you would die for me...

You said that you would die for me
You said that you would die for me ohoo
You said that you would die for me oohooo

    You can say you would die for someone but it doesn't mean anything unless you do the little everyday things for them too. Actions speak louder than words!

    Though songs can have multuple meanings, depending on how the song is percieved through the listener's point of view.. Or hearing.. You get the idea. :]
    I for one believe this song is about a man that fell in love with a girl he'd wanted for so long. In the beggining, everything was as he had hoped it would be. but as time goes on, he realizes it wasn't what he really wanted, and that time had changed them, and now he is torn, not completely sure of what to do.
    Please note that this is my opinion.
    And that I love this song very, very much, along with the band.

    promises are meant to be kept. when we make them, we are sincere about it. but people change and when they do, so do their promises. sometimes, in the end, we realize that what we have now is not what we really wanted or needed

    It felt to me that the guy left the girl because for him they're always fighting and the relationship never grow. They never changed, so he left. Now, he's a sort of regretting why he left her, but he can't go back now. The girl love him very much that she'll do everything for her, but he wants her to be happy and move on. Things changed. Even though it hurts and they still love each other, but not on the same way as before, they still have to live.
