"The Bradley" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba, Chad J. Neptune, Steve Kleiseth, Nicolau Bonifacio Dominguez and Joshua E. Colbert....
False pretense
A lack of resonance
A derisive sentiment
And confidence.

These bonds were always fake
Crafted for safety's sake.
But pasted wings,
And foil rings
Do not an angel make.

I see you left me with your,
Your last word.
It's ringing,
With the noteless shrill of jealousy,
And the claims of imperfection,
And the crying out for,
The things that you deserve.
But your voice is never audible
Beneath the anger in your words
It's ringing,
It's breaking me.

You can't belittle this,
This could change everything.
This one is mine to believe.

This is unparalleled,
A grace that's like gravity,
A clarity I've never seen.

I see you've left me with your,
Your last word
It's ringing
With the noteless shrill of jealousy,
And the claims of imperfection
And the crying out for,
The things that you deserve.
But your voice is never audible
Beneath the anger in your words,
It's ringing.
It's breaking me.

But the hottest words can cauterize,
And in anger, there's just wasted time,
So your last words, just another,
I won't hear.

    General CommentI can't get this song out of my head. This song is one of those few PERFECT songs. It's got everything a song should have: Meaningful lyrics, a good singer with lots of emotion, and a musical section that doesn't take away from the meaning, but adds more to it. This song is easily one of my top 3.

    General CommentI just noticed something. In the second verse there is a "Or ever will" after "A clarity I've never seen." I also think it's SINCE not Seems in the same verse. Someone check me on this.

    General CommentIf you've every been in love with a guy named Bradley and he's breaken your heart, you feel like this song is frickin written for you. I saw the name of the song and i was curious so i read the lyrics. The oddd thing is, Brad's last words to me, were what was so upseting about our relationship....I love FSF
