The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Cat And Mouse lyrics

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

    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.

    Sounds to me the guy here is watching his girl change after the honeymoon of the relationship is over. All the promises she said are not being fulfilled while he comes through on all his. He wonders now if he made a mistake loving her as he is paying a hard emotional price in the form of being jaded by her. As he enters what he feels is the twilight of his resolve to endure, he confronts her on all the promises she failed to uphold, with the most meaningful promise being that she would die for him, in essence do anything for him. How everything will end is left for the listener though there is a heavy lean toward the ending of it is hinted at. This could easily be vis versa with a girl instead of a guy but to me the meaning remains the same.

    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.

    This song relates to me in a different way, I was in a really happy, almost perfect relationship with a guy and we "made plans to grow old" etc and I meant it fully at the time. And then out of nowhere came this amazing girl that I fell head over heels in love with, I wanted nothing more than to be with her but that meant hurting my boyfriend, so me the song is everything I said to him. "you said that you would die for me, but you must live for me too" I didn't want him to be in pain because of me, I wanted him to go and enjoy life, do all the things he wanted to, and thankfully he did and were still best friends lol.
    The end lol: P x

    This song is about falling in love with the person you can never be with. A love with consequence: a cat can never be with a mouse because no matter how they love each other, the cat will end up hurting the mouse. In the song, the man eventually ends up hurting the woman, and feels sorry for it. And he asks is he supposed to be happy when all he ever wanted came with a price. The price is the woman's life or her own happiness.
