fun. – All the Pretty Girls Lyrics 5 years ago
It's simple really; his relationship ended and now he's trying to move on but there's still this fixation there with his ex-girlfriend who he doesn't exactly hate.. makes me think that she ended it and he doesn't really understand why, or doesn't agree with the reason, still caring for her deeply.. hence him caring so much as to mess up every time he tries to go out. And I believe these are a better layout of the lyrics;
------------------

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night..

So I call your name, cross my fingers uncross the others, hesitate.
Oh,I don't think straight with nothing to prove.

I don't wanna say I'mm leaving
I will stay until the weekend.
And you can take all the things;
the boxes and rings
and get going.

'Cause I've been waiting for...

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night.
Let it be, and come to me with the look in your eyes.
Well you break and take all the words from my mouth.
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.

So I call (I call) you out (out baby)
Just to feel a little bit better about myself (he does)
And I do (you do), baby I do, I do, I do (really don't get it, yeah we know you do)
'Til their lips start to move,
and their friends talk music
I say "I've never heard the tune!"
But I have, I just hate the band
'cause they remind me of you.

Every single night ends up the same,
I don't say much at all, but I bring up your name.
(Over and over and over)
I think it's striking me out.

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night
Let it be, and come to me with the look in your eyes.
Well you break and take all the words from my mouth.
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.
But not you,
you still wear boots and your hair is too long
and then this one doesn't want to admit she's fallen in love
Oh c'mon, oh c'mon, what's a boy to do
When all the pretty girls can't measure to you?

I don't understand your reasons
Please just stay over the weekend
You can't take all those things
They define you and me
everything we've become,
You're all that I need
Please don't make me face my generation alone.

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night.
Let it be, oh come to me with the look in your eyes.
And you break and take all the words from my mouth?
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.
But not you,
I feel your faith is destroying the world
and then this one never really understood
the 80s is over and done
Oh c'mon, what's a boy to do,
when all the pretty girls can't measure to you?

Fall Out Boy – Lake Effect Kid (Demo) Lyrics 5 years ago
Sometimes when I'm in heaven
I get forgetful of the earth, woah
Until I hear you big, real like boys and birds
The heat is on
Bakes up when the seat is down

I've got a pocket full of deadliness
Opium den mother, forget my head
At the dead-end called unsteadiness
Boxed blondes have less fun

Boomerang my head
Back to the city I grew up in
Again and again and again
Forever a lake effect kid

I got the skyline in my veins
Forget your night times
Summer love on a gurney with a squeaky wheel
And joke us, joke us
'Til "Lake Shore Drive" goes back into focus
I just want to come back to life
Spark until you hit or give your woman love

I got a pocket full of deadliness
Opium den mother, forget my head
At the dead-end called unsteadiness
Box blondes have less fun, fun

Boomerang my head
Back to the city I grew up in
Again and again
Forever a lake effect kid

Boomerang my head
Back to the city I grew up in
Again and again and again
Forever a lake effect kid

Boomerang my head
Back to the city I grew up in
Again and again and again
Forever a lake effect kid

Boomerang my head
Back to the city I grew up in
Again and again and again
Forever a lake effect kid

Oh god someone please change it to "I get forgetful of the earth" because there's no way it's what it says above.

Matthew Good Band – Raygun Lyrics 6 years ago
It's a shame no one has really commented on this song, brilliant song. Now, Matt has never really been one to make it clear what he was writing about on some of his songs, all I can really say is that this song has something to do with something that is "trapped" inside the protaginist. Whatever that is is up to the listener and their own experiences, I guess.

Matthew Good – 21st Century Living Lyrics 6 years ago
This is the song that pushed me to my future (hopefully) career. I heard it back in high school, and it started me to thinking. I started reading some of Matt's MBlog's and decided I wanted to be a journalist... and here I am, second year of university head on towards a major in Journalism.

The Format – A Save Situation Lyrics 6 years ago
The progression here in this song is probably the best part to me, as well as Nate's vocal range. Just randomly, I have to say the best part of the song for me is; "I swore to God I'd never swear".
