"My So Called Life"

Ever since I saw you
On my so-called life,
I've been writing you these letters
Asking you to be my wife.
But its been almost a year
And still I've gotten no reply,
I'm assuming you have met some other guy.

So I sit in my room,
Watch Romeo & Juliet
A thousand times.
I wish I was as cool
As Leonardo is
But I'm not.

I went on Jerry Springer
To confess my love to you
You said I didn't have a chance
And there was nothing I could do
You told me I was crazy
And wished that I was dead.
You threw a chair right upside my head

Today I highjacked a plane
I wrote your name across the sky,
Miss Clare Danes.
But they were waiting on the ground
To take me straight to jail

I'm staring at your pictures
From my lonely little cell
I'm writing you this letter
To let you know i doing well
Until we meet again
You know I'll cry a thousand tears
And I'll see you in another twenty years.

    General Commentthis is probably the ataris' best song on "look forward to failure" besides san dimas high school football rules. obviously it's about guy who is crazily in love with a girl that wants nothing to do with him. it's a great song. w00t yay for ataris. =D

    General Comment'my so called life' is a tv show... claire danes is an actress who stars this show (i think, i'm not from usa)

    kris wrote this song and was going to show it to claire danes but she was dating ben lee and didn't want anything with him ... so he wrote the song "ben lee"

    General CommentWhich part does Mark Hoppus sing? Is it the "I'm staring at your pictures from my lonely little cell"? It doesn't sound like him. Or is he the backup "ahhh ahh"? Haha. I can't tell, damnit.
