well i started all alone
and i watched you grow
and now please don't take this away from me
you rise then you fall
sometimes it seems like you're not there at all
but that's the way it should be

well
take me for example
and erase your opinions about me
only time will tell

where will you be
where have you gone
two years of my life
now it's all gone

    General CommentI read in an interview once that J.b. stands for "just busted"

    Jordan had a party at his house when his parents were out of town. When his parents came back they found a condom in the bathroom and a beer bottle by a plant and he got in trouble.

    All in all New Found Glory's songs don't make much sense as a whole. They just kinda skip around and leave a lot of thoughts open... thats why I like them so much.

    General CommentThe best songs are the ones you grasp the concept and meaning of, but never fully understand. It makes me curious and keeps me listening. This song does that.

    General Commenti really dont know...but theres that play thing called JB...its about the book of job in the bible. and im not all religious or whatever but...

    in the book of job god and the devil make a bet kinda. the devil says that all these people worship god but thats because they have everything they want and need - take that shit away and people will stop having faith and will curse god. god says that they can test job - a dude whos really faithful. so they test job by doing all these horrible things to him, they kill his kids off in horrible ways, his wife leaves him, they send disease to him and he begs for death but they wont let him die. in the end he never really curses god - he asks why are you doing this to me? god asks something like 'where were you when i created everything' - basically saying that job (and humans in general) has such a small understanding of the universe and everything. in the end god gives job back his health and his wife comes back. so now that i sound like some total religious freak...i'll finish off by saying i guess it COULD make sense...but again i have no idea. just an idea
