"Bike Scene" as written by Adam Lazzara, Shaun Cooper, John Nolan, Mark O'connell and Edward Reyes....
I'll leave the lights down low
So she knows I mean business
And maybe we could talk this over
Cause I could be your best bet
Let alone your worst ex
And let alone your worst

I want to hate you so bad
But I can't (but I can't) stop this
Anymore than you can

So honestly, how could you say those things
When you know they don't mean anything
And you know very well
That I can't keep my hands to myself,
Hands to myself

I want to hate you so bad
But I can't (but I can't) stop this
Anymore than you can

This is all wrong and it shows
There's certain things I promised not to let you know,
(I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the edge of my seat,
I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the)
Not to let you know
I never let you, never let you, never

You've got this silly way
Of keeping me on the edge of my seat
But you're only counting the clock against the train
And I'm miserable, oh
(I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the edge of my seat,
I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the)
And you're just getting started
I'm miserable, oh
And you're just getting started

You've got me right where you want me
(let's never talk) Let's never talk, let's never,
Let's never talk about this again because
I didn't want it to mean that much to me [Repeat x4]

Anyway, yeah

    General CommentTBS absolutely rocks my face off. I had this song stuck in my head ever since I woke up this morning. pretty ironic, because I was sitting in 6th period chemistry today and my ex sits behind me and was singing this song really quietly, but I heard him. wierd, because this song just completely reminds me of him and how i want to hate him so bad, but can't. :( and there he was, singing this song in the middle of chemistry class.... one of life's ironies I suppose.

    General CommentIt's called bike scene for no reason other than they felt like calling it that. Did you notice that the majority of their song names (at least from "Tell All Your Friends") have nothing to do with the lyrics of the song? yay.

    General CommentWow.....i just wanna say that this is a site for song meanings not for people to be all like "oh shiiiitt this totally relates to my life, like omfg, how amazing is that?" shut the fuck up.


    I'll leave the lights down low
    so she knows I mean business

    THIS PART EXPALINS HOW THE BOY AND THE GIRL WHERE FUCK BUDDIES AT FIRST AND HE WAS HAPPY AT FIRST HENCE LEAVING THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW TO SHOW HER HES ONLY AFTER ONE THING..

    And maybe we could talk this over
    Cause I could be your best bet
    Let alone your worst ex
    And let alone your worst...

    THEN THIS PART IS SAYING THAT HE STARTS GETTING FEELINGS FOR HER AND HE ASKS TO MAYBE TALK THINGS OVER..THE "EX" PART IN THE LYRICS IS MISLEADING CUZ IT TOTALLY THROWS MY MEANING OFF BUT I THINK ITS "SEX"

    I wanna hate you so bad
    But I can't (but I can't) stop this
    anymore than you can

    THE CHORUS IS SAYING THAT HE DOESNT WANT TO FEEL THIS FOR HER BUT HE CANT STOP HIS ATTRACTION TO HER FROM GROWING

    So honestly, how could you say those things
    when you know they don't mean anything?
    And you know very well
    that I can't keep my hands to myself,
    hands to myself

    I THINK THAT THIS VERSE MEANS IS TALKING ABOUT THE THINGS SHE SAYS WHEN THEY'RE HAVING SEX LIKE I LOVE YOU AND OBVIOUSLY THEY DONT MEAN A THING AND THEN THE NEXT PART IS OBVIOUS

    This is all wrong and it shows
    There's certain things I promised not to let you know,
    (I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the edge of my seat,
    I've got a silly way of keepin' you up on the...)
    not to let you know
    I never let you, never let you, never...

    THIS MEANS THAT THE WAY THERE RELATIONSHIP IS SPIRALING IS BECOMING RIDICULOUS AND THE EDGE OF SEAT THING IS SAYING THAT HE HAS THE ABILITY TO KEEP HER COMING BACK FOR MORE AND STAYING INTERESTED

    You've got this silly way
    of keepin' me on the edge of my seat
    But you're only countin' the clock against the train
    And I'm miserable, oh
    (I've got a silly way of keepin you up on the edge of my seat,
    I've got a silly way of keepin you up on the...)
    And you're just getting started
    I'm miserable, oh
    And you're just getting started

    THIS IS THAT SHE KEEPS HIM COMING BACK NOW TOO -- NO IDEA ABOUT THE TRAIN LINE -- THEN HES SAYING SHES MAKING HIM MISERABLE BECAUSE HE DOESNT KNOW WHAT TO DO BECAUSE HE SEEMS TO BE FALLING FOR HER AND YET SHE IS CONTENT WITH THE FUCK BUDDY SYSTEM

    You've got me right where you want me
    (let's never talk about this again) Let's never talk, let's never,
    let's never talk about this again because...
    I didn't want it to mean that much to me
    I didn't want it to mean that much to me
    I didn't want it to mean that much to me
    I didn't want it to mean that much to me

    THEN THIS PART IS AFTER HE'S SHARED HIS FEELINGS AND SHE OBVIOUSLY DOESNT RETURN THEM SO HE NEVER WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT AGAIN AND HE'S SAYING THAT SHE GOT HIM IN THE PALM OF HER HAND AND WHEREVER SHE WANTS THE RELATIONSHIP TO GO IT CAN....AND THEN THE LAST BIT OF REPITTION IS OBVIOUS


    thanks-- good song ..and john nolan is overrated.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorite TBS songs. I think it's called bike scene cause it happened while he was riding his bike home getting ready for her to come over. But hey, that could waaaaaaay off, which it probably is.

    It reminds me of my ex, and how there were so many things I wanted to tell her, that I never did. Like how I rushed things with her, and ended up being the worst possible boyfriend. And then the hate that I wanted to feel towards her, but never could. Relationships always mean something to you, reguardless of how little you wish they did.

    General Commentdoes anyone else agree that when he stresses the word "right" is the best part of the song...music wise, not lyric?
