The moon is shining bright
The mood is feeling right
I'll kiss you on your neck
People will stare but we won't care
We're high above the ground
We're nowhere to be found

Empowered by adrenaline
Feel I've been born again
Again, I am repeating myself
And I know it is kind for you
To sit and pretend

Damn regret, I'll try to forget
Don't worry about me
Cause I'm refined
Cast my line
To see what's behind
Did you think you persuaded me to let you go?

I'm wishing you were here
My weakness is my fear
Alone I am myself
No reason, life for me to care
Distracted by the sound
I hear footsteps all around

Empowered by adrenaline
Feel I've been born again
Again, I am repeating myself
And I know it's kind for you
To sit and pretend

Damn regret, I'll try to forget
Don't worry about me
Cause I'm refined
Cast my line
To see what's behind
Did you think you persuaded me to let you go?

You're the only one I turn to
When I feel like no-one's there
And when I'm lonely in my darkest hour
You give me the power
To sit and pretend

Damn regret, I'll try to forget
Don't worry about me
Cause I'm refined
Cast my line
To see what's behind
Did you think you persuaded me to let you go?

Did you think I forget?
Did you think I surrender myself to persuade you to let me go?
Did you think I forget?
Did you think I surrender myself to persuade you to let me go?

    I think it's about how he had to break up with someone, and he's thinking about her and how worse off he is now without her. And he's saying that although she may think so, she didn't persuade him to let her go, she's probably just thinking that to help herself through it.

    This is one of my favorites by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, I love them =]]
