"You're So Last Summer" as written by Adam Lazzara, Shaun Cooper, John Nolan, Mark O'connell and Edward Reyes....
She said,
"Don't, don't let it go to your head
Boys like you are a dime a dozen,
Boys like you are a dime a dozen"
She said,
"You're a touch overrated,
You're a lush and I hate it
But these grass stains on my knees
They won't mean a thing"

And all I (all I)
Need to know (need to know)
Is that I'm somethin you'll be missin
(is that I'm somethin that you're missin)
(maybe I should hate for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that far
(maybe I should hate for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that

I'd never lie to you
Unless I had to
I'll do what I got to
Unless I had to
I'll do what I go to, the truth
Is you could slit my throat
And with my one last gasping breath
I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt

And all I (all I)
Need to know (need to know)
Is that I'm somethin you'll be missin
(is that I'm somethin that you're missin)
Maybe I should hate you for this
(maybe I should hate you for this)
Never really did ever quite get that far
(maybe I should hate for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that

Cause I'm a wishful thinker with the worst intentions,
This'll be last chance you get to drop my name
Cause I'm a wishful thinker with the worst intentions
This'll be last chance you get to drop my name

If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar

If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar
If I'm just bad news, then you're a liar

    General Comment Song about a guy who really likes a girl and is actually given a chance with her. To the girl, who is probably popular and well-known, the guy is nothing special and just another guy. From the guy's point of view he has the best thing ever and he devoted to her. When the girl finally starts to drop him, the song is basically him begging for her and wondering if this was all just a big mistake.

    the grass stains line isn't about head (wtf)....its probably him on his knees in front of her house or basically begging her to take him back

    General Commentjust an observation but he never really officially closed the quotation from the girl when he said "she said your a touch..." so isnt there a possibility that the song is from a girls perspective rather then guys

    General CommentThis song is so real, so truthful. To me it seems like The realationship ended when the girl got over him and changed her mind( "boys like you are a dime a dozen"), but he can't seem to have any hate towards her("maybe i should hate you for this, never really did ever quite get that far") doesn't understand why she's acting this way("I'd never lie to you, unless i had to i'll do what i got to. the truth, is you could slit my throat..)and still has the hopes and wishes that she'll come crawling back to him("all i need to know is that i'm somethin that you'll be missin") but it also seems like at the end of the song he comes to the conclusion he's not as bad as she's making him out to be..and tells her(" if i'm just bad news,then you're a lier") and i think the title "you're so last summer" is possibly mocking her a year after the realationship is over..or it could be something she may have said to him

    General CommentThis is a great song…..

    I think this whole song is in the girls point of view. In the beginning
    Shes trying to hurt the guys ego by saying nothing about him was special anyways. Boys like him are overated. She says the sexual things they did didn’t mean anything and to not let it go to his head that he got her. Boys like him are a dime a dozen.
    But then she breaks down and says she needs to know if she’s something that he will even miss. Then calls herself pathetic. She is mad at herself saying she should hate him for it but she can’t she still loves him and doesn’t get why.
    Then as if trying to explain why she was so good for him and cared for him so much she says she’d never lie to him unless she had to save him from pain. She says the truth is even if he killed her she would still love him so much, she would apologize for doing something bad to him like bleeding on his shirt

    . . .“you could slit my throat
    and with my one last gasping breath
    I'd apologize for bleedin' on your shirt” is a beautiful line


    Then she tries to retaliate again by saying she’s a wishful thinker with the worst intentions and when she’s done with him he won't want to drop her then she name ..maybe to his buddies bragging about what they did or something. Then she says if she’s just bad news...like him saying shes clingy or the relationship ended bad then that to his friends then he’s a liar because of how perfect they used to be.

    I’m probably way wrong on this but it's what I always think when I hear it.
