When there is nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.

July 18, 2007

The song title is Your Ex-Lover is Dead by the Stars, however there is a reworked piece of this song which starts with the title of this article. I found it both funny and telling of the song

Lyrically and musically this is an amazing song, it has been out for a few years, but has never really had any airplay. I think the lyrics speak for themselves.

God, that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said, "Yes, I think we’ve met before"
In that instant it started to pour

Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of that time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
You tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
And now you’re outside me, you see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

Nothing but time and a face that you’ll lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose
I’ll write you a postcard I’ll send you the news
From the house down the road from real love

Live through this and you won’t look back.
Live through this and you won’t look back.
Live through this and you won’t look back.

There’s one thing I have to say so I’ll be brave.
You were what I wanted I gave what I gave.
I’m not sorry I met you.
I’m not sorry it’s over.
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say.
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say.
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say.
