"Too Far Gone" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
I should warn you
Things you're feeling, aren't normal now.
Think you need me
It's not easy, let you go some how.

Now we're too far gone,
Hope is such a waste
Every breath you take you give
Me the burdens bitter taste

You promise that you'd stay
You say you want to go
Your lips provide a shelter for the
Things that I don't know

Please speak slowly
My heart is learning
Teach me heart-ache,
Stop this burning now.

Wishful thinking
Patience shrinking, bliss is far away
North is calling
Now I'm falling, at your feet please stay

    General Commentthe lyrics here aren't very correct, but I still love the song... What makes good lyrics? Something that people can relate to & I can totally relate to these. I know I have no right to expect him to stay, but I hope for it anyway, even if it IS in vain...

    All American Rejects is an incredible band. They're one of my faves. But could some one please clear up the meaning of the song, I'm a little confused.

    General Commentthanks for the correct lyrics, martina! I have several different ideas on what this song is about... I think in the very first 3 lines, he's talking to himself...then in the rest he's talking to his girlfriend. I believe that this girlfriend of his is going away (somewhere up north...maybe college?) He is all torn up that she's actually going, because she'd promised she wouldn't & the fact that she is going is killing him...@ the end he's begging her to stay... *sigh* So sweet... -- Rock on AAR!
