Kisses are never safe when residue of old love is left
how could I feel lesser when someone better
walks around / waiting for you to call out
As your cold hand grasps mine I feel unright
and privileged to be able to look
in your eyes / same chemical as stars
Deformed fingers leave trails of hearts in writing
could three words be the end to births only meaning
Crying to sleep is my remedy
urgently trying to stand on broken / confused legs
Am I looking for reasons not to be happy
emotions catch up with me / I'm too fast for them

    General Commentok this song is definitely about just breaking upwith someone and then going on the rebound. "Kisses are never safe when residue of old love is left..." kissing the rebound girl is not good cuz hes still getting over the other girl. "emotions catch up wtih mr, but im to fast for them" his emotions of from the last girl are still there, but hes now with the other girl who he is only with to get over the old one.

    General Commentvery very good song, tho not as good as "slice paper wrists" or "torn" or "parks and what you meant to me"
    nonetheless, an amazing song by an amazing band, i cant wait till their new cd comes out this summer...

    General Commentdude im glad you love the fuckin song but its called song meanings...like what the words to the song means ya know? i kind of think when he says "how could I feel lesser when someone better
    walks around" he means like maybe that he likes someone, someone from his past but the person has met someone else that means alot to them. like time changes everything...and after a while feelings go away but they come back like "emotions catch up with me" like there's still feelings and they never really went away, they were just pushed aside
