Snow White lyrics in 4Tour book

We discussed this in the Rome show chat, but I keep forgetting to post it. Some of the lyrics for Real Snow White were printed in the 4Tour book, and we didn't even know it. : ) (Thanks to Rayanne for the reminder)

  2. Ah! I haven't heard the new songs yet. I'm holding out for the album!
    But I thought he was talking about postponing the tour with that broken promises comment. :D

  3. i had no clue what does words meant until the rome show, whenever i looked at the tourbook i would always wonder what the fuck was he talking about, now it all makes sense, but not completely, we still dont know the reason why he wrote them, anyway:)

  5. Any one have the lyrics for THE REASONS WHY yet? cause i have an accurate(?)/rough attempt, some bits are missing but i thought it might be a little help for anyone who was also trying.

  6. MGG: I always thought that was what he was talking about, too. :)

    But my favorite part was him writing, "Thank you for coming and enjoy the show!" :) I always thought it was very nice of him to write that.

  7. Carlos: Yes, I've put together a page for all of the lyrics. Still working on it, but hope to put up what I have, by tonight. Here's The Reasons Why:

    I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
    Got no need to bring you out about my big surprise
    I won't try to pull you down about my love of life
    If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

    I'm writing you a letter, getting better, can I see you (where? when?)
    All the lights go out together, blame the weather, yeah the cold again
    In the darkness for a second I am sure I've seen them smiling there
    There they are calling me, yeah I feel them calling me

    I am falling through the skies
    You remember how
    I am falling in their arms
    You remember how
    I am falling through the stars
    You remember this
    I am falling in their eyes
    You remember the kiss

    I won't try to pull you down about the other side
    Got no need to pull you out about my right to die
    I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
    If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

    I'm calling you ?, I'm feeling alright, can I tell you (where? when?)
    On the line, no sound of my words, whispered like birds on the wire again
    In the darkness for a second, I am sure I've seen them laughing there
    I hear them calling me, yeah they are calling me

    I am falling through the skies
    You remember how
    I am falling in their eyes
    You remember how
    I am falling through the stars
    You remember this
    I am falling in their arms
    You remember the kiss

    You know they said, in holding on
    To nothing left, for something gone
    We know they said, in letting go
    Of fear and dread, and all you know
    You're losing me, with certainty
    And make believe, eternity
    To find the truth, reality
    In make believe, infinity

    I won't try to bring you down about my suicide
    If you promise not to sing about the reasons why

  10. Craig- thanks! i see now that your attempt is more accurate, just one thing, i think that in the line "I'm calling you ?, I'm feeling alright, can I tell you (where? when?)" the missing word there is "at midnight" thats what i get to hear. thought it might help:)

    i thought it said "in the darkness for a second i am sure i've seen the smiling/laughing men" but your guess is more accurate:) thanks ALOT i looooove this song,my favourite so far and i think it has AWESOME lyrics, one of the best EVER in my opinion :) thanks:)

  11. Carlos: No problem.

    Yeah, I wanted to hear midnight, but I don't. I just hear Mitt. : )

  12. The first time I heard 'the real snow white' the lyric reminded me of a moment during the RCMH gig. Just after RS climbed down from the mezzanine for the second time he said "promises made in the heat of the moment" - I guess the lyric was in his head.

  21. Robert's a sneaky devil! We had the lyrics to a new song & didn't even know it. I agree with MGG--I thought it was some sort of way for Robert to say to the fans that he was sorry for the tour delay.
