baby, you say, "this is your life, well where is mine?" how you gonna get there going nowhere? burn yourself out. die too soon. you see the world is only temporary. everybody's scared that they'll be no one too. how you gonna hold out when you sold out? life's a riddle. here's a clue. you see, a moment's only temporary. let too many go, and you will be history too. "why?" you ask me. "why?" i'll tell you. "why?" i will tell you. you gave up baby.

    General CommentI like this song a lot. I just heard The Juliana Theory yesterday. It's different then the other songs I downloaded by them. But it's still really good. It does sound a lil pop, but the lyrics are good.

    General CommentWell i think its awesome, the only song on that cd thats pop it is "somthing isn't right here" which is a pretty sucky song for them, but this song says that some other person is trying to hard to be someone they're not.

    General CommentI like anything by The Juliana Theory. If any of their songs is pop, it's definitely "We're on the top of the world"
    Didn't Disney use that song?

    General CommentI don't care what you call The Juliana Theory. The thing that makes them great, I think, is that they have such a variety of sounds to them. And this song, is one of my favorites. It takes such a different approach to the subject of being confused on life in gerneral. This time it's the girl, mostly it's the guy. And I think that he hit it perfectly how a lot of people feel. "everybody's scared that they'll be no one too". That's how I feel a lot. TJT is amazing.

    General CommentMy understanding is that this song was actually written somewhat as a joke. The guys from TJT were joking around with a friend who told them that a band doesn't get big until they have a song that says, "baby" in it. I like this song though, it's pretty catchy.

    General Commenti love everything by the juliana theory... i'm going to see them soon w/ piebald and glassjaw... oh boy, so excited!!! but anyways... this song is great, i love the lyrics. "life's a riddle, here's a clue. you see a moment's only temporary let too many go and you'll be history too." it's like saying... live for all the little things. if you don't have any memories, you're life is going to pass you by. i live by that line.
    oh... and i agree... the "baby" kinda freaked me out when i first heard it, lol... but it really does fit. i like it
