"I'm A Terrible Person" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
I'm a terrible person
I'm a terrible person
I'm a terrible person
Cause I've made up my mind
I'm a terrible person
Cause I've let her on
And I'm the only one who knows what I've done to her
Oh yeah I'm much smarter now,
I won't tell her friends before her
Oh I'm afraid
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
But I'm a horrible person, I read her diary
I'm not to be trusted
I told all of her secrets
To all the guys in town
They all laugh, and slap me five
Oh yeah
Luckily she doesn't have dirt on me 'cause I'm the cleanest guy
Oh I'm so afraid
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
Well I don't think I'll ever be sorry
No I'm not sorry for a thing I've done
And I don't think I'll ever wake up lonely
Cause having her around wasn't all that special
Well I don't think I'll ever be sorry
No I'm not sorry for a thing I've done
And I don't think I'll ever wake up lonely
Cause having her around wasn't all that special
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday
It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. I have a lot of guy friends. I mean...it's such an honest song. I can see where a lot of guys can relate. I love Robert's voice when he says "Cause I've made up my mind" verrrrrry sexy ;) Ok...I'm angry now. These two girls who I was talking to about Rooney at least 6 months ago said they've been into them for a couple years. I know that's a pile of bull cause they were clueless when I mentioned them. I hate it when people do that! They get the CD and wear the shirts but it's like they're only aware of their released material. Rooney had some amazing unreleased material. They performed a new song at the HOB. Wonderful writing and great melody. The guys need to keep up the good work.

    General CommentI think this song is about going out with some girl he didnt actually like, and then dumping her, and feeling fine. HE says hes a terrible person, but he doesnt feel badly, and isnt worried, except of her seeking revenge, although she has nothing on him.
    Its pretty self explanatory

    General Commenti love this.. it kind of happened to my best friend. it's about a guy who completely led this girl on to belive that he loved her but he finally admitted he didn't. all of his + her friends knew and she was the last to know. but he doesn't even feel badly now, he's just really scared of her.. yeah, thats about it. i love rooney

    General CommentI'm not that big of a Rooney fan, but recently I've been listening to their stuff more and more. I was on their official side, randomly browsing their lyrics, when I saw the lyrics to this song. Before hearing the thing, it made me teary-eyed. As much as this song may sound up-beat, it has the total opposite effect on me.

    I think the lines that got to me are:

    "I'm a terrible person
    Cause I've made up my mind
    I'm a terrible person
    Cause I've led her on
    And I'm the only one who knows what I've done to her
    I'm much smarter now
    I won't tell her friends before her
    It's gonna be a bad day come Sunday"

    The reason why it's so impacting is kind of person, but let's just say there is such a coincedential and ironic meaning behind it all. =\

    But yeah, I think you all have it right as far as what the meaning to this song can be.

    General CommentI think its a pretty obvious meaning. what i like about it most is "its gonna be a bad day come sunday", which i think means when he goes to church sunday and has to confess his "sins"
