i sit alone in this darkened room
as your memory flickers by
it's hard to believe how easy it is
to fall in love with a lie

but now that i watch all your scenes
i think that i finally see
that nothing you did meant a thing
you were only acting

actor director
you were my biggest disaster
actor director
shoot first; edit it after
shoot first; edit it after
you were not the one i cast for

i guess that i loved you
the first time we met
so i cast you in this role
and you read your lines so well
i forgot you were acting at all

but now that production is done
i see that i am the one
who could have used direction
so please just give me direction

it's getting late
but i'm still awake
with my scissors and tape
i'm carefully cutting
to try to make something
despite my mistakes
when i am done
there's not a one
who will know my heart breaks
well it's getting late
but i'm still awake
with my scissors and tape
