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.

    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.

    For me this song tells us that to be happy we always have to sacrifice something. Life is about choices. Many things in life can make us happy, but we cannot have it all..

    My girlfriend contemplated suicide before she met me. She's 19 and her parents are over-bearing and they dislike me because of my religion. They have "nightly" talks with her. When we had to break up, she contemplated suicide again. If it wasn't for her parents, all i've ever wanted wouldn't come with a price. I just want her to "live for me too", live life to the fullest.

    this song describes exacly how i feel. :(
    me and this guy had a lil thing going on but i moved. i was still happy cuz he loved me still. but a week before i moved back (he didnt know iwas moving back) things changed he suddenly didnt call me or text me or anything. he didnt even talk to me wen i did come back.
    and this was another thing that added to my theory: that wen something good happens in my life, i lose something else that made me happy.
