Sarah Smiles Lyrics

I was fine just a guy living on my own,
Waiting for the sky to fall
Then you called and changed it all,
Doll,

Velvet lips and the eyes to pull me in,
We both know you'd already win,
Mm you're original sin.

You fooled me once with your...

    The first part of this song is about how he met sarah and everything changed. He then says how hes attracted to her and how shes already won him over but this is due to lust so basically a sin. He then says that hes been with her twice the first time for her beauty (eyes) the second time cause she lied to him. The guy then says how sarah is kind of a bitch and doesn't think about anyone but herself "smiling and living in a world unaware" but he still loves her and wants to stay with her "my destiny lies with you" but he asks to ask if she "saving him" or is gonna stay with him. "I don't mind take your time...." this is Sarah leaving him the first time and hes saying how he is gonna continue living his life and not just wait for her to grow up and mature but hes hoping she will. "And its killing me inside..." This is after he got back with sarah after she lied to him about maturing and now hes heartbroken after taking her back and seeing shes not the girl she said she was. Then Sarah leaves him and he mentions how she hurt him by casting away his pride and that shes a bitch with no consideration for anyone but herself. But in the end he still wonders if she could grow up would he be with her.

    In my opinion, this song expresses the love/hate any relationship has. Throughout the verses, Brendon expresses the anger he feels towards Sarah for seducing him and leaving him on the side of the road after their break up. Although they have since gotten back together, Brendon still felt that bitterness towards what happened. He also mentions that "...she lives in her world, so unaware..." which can possibly mean that Sarah doesn't understand how much she means to him, as well as how much in love with her she is. Now, if Brendon were in love with me... I would never leave him. He is a sex god.

    I'm pretty sure this song was written before they were engaged or married her so, most likely he wrote this song to tell her how he was feeling and trying to get her to make up her mind about their relationship, without actually saying anything to her.

    I think it might even be about Brendon's-now-wife-since-april
    Her name IS Sarah...... just saying..... maybe a love song for her

    Honestly I feel like this song is about drugs or some other bigger problem along with his girlfriend. It explains the confusions and the asking her to save him. You fooled me once with your eyes can explain the appeal drugs have to some people, and the twice with lies can be attributed to the drugs once more. I feel he talks about her leaving him not because she is, but because he's afraid when she leaves because he knows he cannot control himself. Idk could be wrong, but the song really really hits home for me that way.

    Personally, I think Brendon uses Sarah as a metaphor for Ryan.
    "I was fine just a guy living on my own,
    Waiting for the sky to fall
    Then you called and changed it all,
    Doll." He was was alone with his music, but Ryan changed that when they formed Panic.

    "Velvet lips and the eyes to pull me in,
    We both know you'd already win,
    Mm you're original sin." Ryan pulled him into doing this, knowing he'd agree. He refers to it as a sin here because of Ryan leaving.

    "You fooled me once with your eyes now honey,
    You fooled me twice with your lies and I say" You tricked me by bringing me in, and then you left.

    "Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
    She lives in her world so unaware.
    Does she know that my destiny lies with her?" Ryan is fine after leaving, almost unaware that Brendon is upset. Doesn't he know that he shouldn't have left.

    "Sarah,
    Oh Sarah,
    are you saving me?" Are you helping me, or hurting me?

    "Waking up to a kiss and you're on your way,
    I really hoped that you would stay,
    But you left and went your own way,
    Babe." Ryan left, even though Brendon hoped he would stay.

    "I don't mind, take your time, I got things to do,
    Besides sit around and wait for you.
    Oh and I hope you do too." He's trying to say it's okay that Ryan left, but is feeling bitter about it.

    "And it's killing me inside,
    Consuming all my time,
    You've left me blind,
    And when I think I'm right,
    You strip away my pride,
    You cast it all aside but I say." It hurts him, it's all he can think about.

    Basically it's about Sarah who is playing hard to get so he thinks she doesn't like him.

    I was fine just a guy living on my own,
    Waiting for the sky to fall
    Then you called and changed it all,
    Doll,
    Velvet lips and the eyes to pull me in,
    We both know you'd already win,
    Mm you're original sin.

    (Basically he's saying he was happy being single, but then he meets sarah and falls for her)

    You fooled me once with your eyes now honey,
    You fooled me twice with your lies and I say,

    (Basically she fooled him because he didn't think she liked him when she actually did. He's refering this to her lying to him)

    Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
    She lives in her world so unaware.
    Does she know that my destiny lies with her?

    (He thinks that she doesn't like him and acts like she's unaware of him liking her. Then he is saying that his destiny is to be with her)

    Waking up to a kiss and you're on your way,
    I really hoped that you would stay,
    But you left and went your own way,
    Babe,

    (They probably slept together, she just kissed him and then went home. But he really wanted her to stay with him)

    I don't mind, take your time, I got things to do,
    Besides sit around and wait for you.
    Oh and I hope you do too,

    (She's still clearly playing hard to get but he's pretty much saying he'll wait for her anyway)

    And it's killing me inside,
    Consuming all my time,
    You've left me blind,
    And when I think I'm right,
    You strip away my pride,
    You cast it all aside but I say,

    (It's killing him inside because he loves her an thinks she doesnt love him back, he spends all his time thinking about her and won't look at other woman as he only wants sarah.)

    What bothers me is that he never says who this 'you' person is.

    "You fooled me once with your eyes now honey,
    You fooled me twice with your lies and I say,

    Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
    She lives in her world so unaware.
    Does she know that my destiny lies with her?"


    To me it sounds like he's cheating on her, or trying to cover something up..
    I've never heard the song or any stories about it, but that is what it tells me..
    Anyone thinking the same?

    This song is obviously about unrequited love, in that he loves Sarah but she doesn't give a shit. As he expliciatly states. Thanks :3

    He said in an interveiw that he was so infactuated with her and didnt know how to tell her that he liked her. So he wrote her a song. And now they're engaged. Funny thing is though, i bought Vices and Virtues but it wouldnt upload to my computer, so i downloaded it, and the person who put it online whom downloaded it from changed the name from 'sarah smiles' to 'ryan smiles' I smiled. xoxox

    I actually think it's a Love/Hate song kind of thing o_o' It can't be all a hate song if he dedicated this to his girlfriend & if he loves her dearly..Maybe sometimes he hates her & sometimes doesn't hate her. But what do I know? I'm on 13 *shrug* Just my opinion on what the song means. ^^

    i think its about a girl who he is in love ith but she ignores him. She either doesnt know he exists or ignores him on purpose. Hes telling himself that she is just taking her time and she will fall for him soon. He asks if she is saving him from lives of misery together by ignoring him.

    I agree with Mikalah about the interpretation.
    Did anyone else notice that in the acknowledgements in the back of Vices and Virtues that Brandon thanks "Sarah Elizabeth Orzechowski for being an inspiration and smiling when I could not " Yeah, that pretty much explains everything.

    This song was written for Brendon's girlfriend, Sarah. He wrote the song to impress her. And obviously it worked well enough, because she fell for him. ♥♥♥
