"Swing, Swing" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Days swiftly come and go.
I'm dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions they stir
The sun is gone.
The nights are long
And I am left while the tears fall

Did you think that I would cry,
On the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
Being alone?
I'll find someone new

(Swing) swing, swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love.
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again

Wish cast into the sky
I'm moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old,
They bend, they fold
And so do I to a new love

Did you think that I would cry,
On the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
Being alone?
I'll find someone new

(Swing) swing, swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love.
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again

Bury me
(You thought your problems were gone)
Carry me
(Away, away, away)

(Swing) swing, swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love.
Can you help me find a way

To carry on again
To carry on again
To carry on again

    General Commenthaha....for about six months now i've thought that they were saying "tabletop" instead of "tangles of." my eyes are opened, and i feel like a huge nerd.

    General Commentthis song i can totally relate to! i get attached to some guy, they break my heart and somehow i can't get over them. so i just want some guy to sweep me off my feet so i can ditch the "former love".
    i just wanna sing this to the guy that breaks my heart because it says exactly what i would want to say to him.
    "did you think that i would cry
    on the phone?
    do you know what it feels like
    being alone?
    i'll find someone new"
    its sayin, "hey! did u ever consider how i would feel? how would u like to be alone...but guess what, i'll find someone new, because you're an ass"
    i could just go on forever about how great the lyrics are to this song! the wording is perfect!
    aar kick ass! and are awesome in concert! :)
    they need to come back to cali soon!

    General CommentBenjiRoxMyWorld

    I did too!! I have always thought it was tables of my heart until recently.. And instead of former love, I thought it was Form of love.. Blah@Me LoL..

    Anyways, I think we all know the meaning of this song.. Its about trying to move on from a relationship and pain that was caused by cheating, etc.. This song manages to always touch me personally.. So moving! Love it!

    General Commentdont try to sound like you know it all, man. its on allamericanrejects.com/…
    ...anyways, i love this song. i think AAR are very talented and original... not a sound i hear everyday...

    "Swing, swing, swing from the tangles of,
    my heart is crushed by a former love.
    Can you help me find a way to carry on again?"

    ... i love that whole part.... its already a classic to me...
