"Saints And Sailors" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
This is where I say I've had enough
And no one should ever feel the way that I feel now.
A walking open wound,
A trophy display of bruises
And I don't believe that I'm getting any better.
Any better.

Waiting here with hopes the phone will ring
And I'm thinking awful things
I'm pretty sure that few would notice.
And this apartment
Is starving for an argument.
Anything at all to break the silence.

Wandering this house
Like I've never wanted out
And this is about as social as I get now.

And I'm throwing away the letters that I am writing you
Cause they would never do,
I would never do.
Never

Waiting here with hopes the phone will ring
And I'm thinking awful things
I'm pretty sure that few would notice.
And this apartment is starving for an argument.
Anything at all to break the silence.

So don't be a liar
Don't say that
Everything's working
When everything's broken.
And you smile like a saint
But you curse like a sailor
And your eyes say the jokes on me.
But, I'm not laughing
You're not leaving
Who do I think I am kidding?
When I'm the only one locked in this hell

Waiting here with hopes the phone will ring
And I'm thinking awful things
I'm pretty sure that few would notice.
And this apartment is starving for an argument.
Anything at all to break the silence.

So don't be a liar
Don't say that everything's working
When everything's broken.
And you smile like a saint but you curse like a sailor
And your eyes say the jokes on me.

As for now I'm gonna hear the saddest songs and sit alone and wonder how you're making out.
But as for me, I wish that I was anywhere, with anyone, making out.

    General CommentThis song has so much meaning to me. i used to think that i had to be perfect on the outside before i was perfect on the inside...once i started listening to dashboard i loved this song and every time i hear it i take it to heart...it has helped me realize that you dont have to be perfect especially on the outside.

    General Commentah ha! it's taken me ages to find a lyrics page that has the rest of the lyrics to this song. i was beginning to think i'd imagined it...

    but i'm not laughing
    you're not leaving
    who do i think i am kidding?
    when i'm the only one locked in this hell

    General CommentWhat a horrible situation that guy is going though in this song. You can almost get that same feeling just listening to the words. That lonely emptiness feeling. His lyrics are so good, I almost hate them sometimes.

    General CommentAnyone who has ever been in a bad relationship, this is their anthem. I should know. After being in one where I was lied to, cheated on, etc., this song helped me realized that I wasn't the bad guy, and that I wasn't to blame. Anyone who hears it or even reads the lyrics will learn that they have the strength and will to find something better out there...*sniff* God Bless that Dashboard Confessional*sniff*...
