"You've Got So Far To Go" as written by and Mathew Thomas Skiba Daniel Michael Andriano....
Soon ends our stay here and it's been fun
So tonight I'll raise my glass to us
Cause we've talked so much
I think we filled this ashtray twice, and I'm pretty sure
We emptied every bottle in the place, so
Let's walk home, let's be afraid
I want to grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard
Let's do it right under the streetlight
I want it now, somehow I forgot how

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go

I heard everybody's voice cut out when you spoke
And I watched all the lights go dim
When your eyes opened
Well I can't believe you showed up, what do I do now?
It's last call, time to go
But before we say goodnight

Let's walk home, let's be afraid
I want to grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard
Let's do it right under the streetlight
I want it now, somehow I forgot how

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go

    General CommentSounds to me like it's about a guy who instantly falls in love with a girl. Then, at the end of their first night they met he wants to 'kiss her so hard' because he is so much in love with her already. But then he realizes she has a far way to go before she feels the same for him, as it is only their first night meeting.

    General CommentDude, this is such a great song! It's about completely hitting it off with someone, and completely falling for them, and trying to get up the nerve to makea move. I think it really captures the nervousness, excitement, and intensity of a first kiss you're really pumped for.

    General Commentwow....this song blows me out of the 'water'....every time i hear it or read the lyrics i just get flashbacks, similar to 'nam, only not as many slanted eyes. everyone that knows me knows ive said that alot, but its the only way to describe it. this group as awesome talent and i cant wait for more stuff from them.

    General Commentthis is my all time favorite alkaline trio song! it just reminds you of that perfect date with that perfect person ending with that anxiously awaited perfect kiss but it's sad because even though he loves this girl she's not quite ready and he realizes that.

    General Commentas much as i agree with the "perfect date, perfect guy" bit, i think everyone is missing the refrain "forgot you've got so far to go.." i think this part changes the nature of the song from the "perfect date" mentality compltetely. i belive the song is about getting caught up in the moment of things and not realizing that someone isnt as great as you thought.
