A week inside, I think I'm starting to show.
I told myself to keep myself in line.
Should we get married or just go on killing each other?
I don't think I hate you enough to commit you to me.
Happy all the time. It's all we ever do.
Steady in decline. It's all we ever do.
I'm sorry but it's true.
How can I save you when I couldn't save a dime.
I want to call you and tell you that I'm a fan.
All my friends know better but I can't quite hear them.
Still for the life of me I can't imagine our home.
Good things, that's all I want.
All I want for you.
Hold me. Set me free.
It's all I want from you.
It's sad and it's so true.
If you can't be the life of the party,
You'll be the death of everyone.
All I want is a life without parties.
Want you as one.
Watch this pot and it is sure to boil.
Sometimes I catch myself thinking,
"Boy, or girl?"
Kiss me on the teeth. It's all that we can do.
Punch me. Wake me up.
This lullaby is blue.
Lie and say we're through.

    General CommentJawbreaker was a great band, and when I pop in my "Dear You" CD from them, this is one of the tracks I listen to first. The lyrics are so true and Blakes' voice fits in between the guitar chords. I often catch myself imitating his voice while I sing with my band

    General Commentin a few versions of the song blake sings:
    "we're so close, it's scaring me. we're so tight, we're enemies. we're so wrong, it's scandalous. we're so fucked, just hold me."

    how i wish he would have kept that part in.

    General Comment(Should we get married or just go on killing each other?
    I don't think I hate you enough to commit you to me.)
    is saying that he doesn't want her to have to spend the rest of her life with him because he isn't worth getting married to.
    (Happy all the time. It's all we ever do. Steady in decline. It's all we ever do. I'm sorry but it's true.)
    saying they pretend everything is okay and they pretend they are happy all the time, which is contributing to their downfall.
    (All my friends know better but I can't quite hear them.)
    saying that his friends are telling me that this girl, or this relationship isn't healthy and is going to fail, but he ignores them or chooses not to listen to their advice.
    (Still for the life of me I can't imagine our home)
    he can't image what it would be like for them to married based on how things are now
    (Good things, that's all I want. All I want for you. Hold me. Set me free. It's all I want from you.
    It's sad and it's so true.)
    saying that he only wants what is good for her, and that she should let them just go their seperate ways, because that is what is best for her.
    (If you can't be the life of the party, You'll be the death of everyone. All I want is a life without parties.
    Want you as one.)
    if she can't be the center of attention shes going to make it miserable for everyone else. he wants life without drama, and wants her to just settle down with him.
    (Kiss me on the teeth. It's all that we can do. Punch me. Wake me up. This lullaby is blue. Lie and say we're through.)
    back to happy all the time is all we ever do, if you are going to kiss someone on the teeth they would be smiling, so this is saying that continuing to pretend to be happy is all that they can do. saying that he wishes this was all just a dream. lie and say we're through- this means if she says they are over, that they both know that it's really not.

    General Commenti also get the impression that she is pregnant, from the "starting to show" line and "boy or girl" and him trying to convince himself he loves her enough to stay with her, even though he knows it won't work out.
