"Five Days & Counting" as written by Daniel Lowder, Thomas J Minich, Jose Daniel Romero and Mark Daniel Rose....
In my car
Five days and counting, here you are
The phone rings
What more could you say?

I know you won't ever admit that you fell for him
He never loved you back
Isn't it wonderful?
So predictable
I told you so

Stay awake
I'm here now
Don't say sorry

Not picking up
Cause he knows you're calling
He's holding back
Cause he knows you're falling
You're night and day
And that's why he's stalling
But one day, he'll be sorry

I hope that you never relive that
Something tells me trouble always gives you a hand
It's just a matter of passing time
After time, after time

Stay awake tonight
Forget about your last goodbyes
And you'll be sorry
Stay awake tonight
Forget about your last goodbyes now
Don't say sorry
Say sorry

Stay awake
I'm here now
Don't say sorry
Stay awake
I'm here
Why don't you tell me is it worth it
To close your eyes and live a dream?
Tell me, was it perfect?
Was he really everything
You ever thought someone could be?

Stay awake tonight
Forget about your last goodbyes
And you'll be sorry

Stay awake
I'm here now
Don't say sorry
Stay awake
I'm here
Why don't you, don't you
Stay awake tonight
Try and forget about your last goodbyes
And you'll be sorry
Stay awake tonight
Try and forget about your last goodbyes now
Don't say sorry

    General CommentI can see where you're coming from dan632, but, then again, that guy has such a unique voice, maybe not. I love his "do do do do"s on 'Foreign Language'.

    General CommentMaybe it's just me, but I think that the third 'paragraph' on here should be::::
    "not picking up
    cause he knows you're calling
    he's holding back
    cause he knows you're falling
    you're night and day
    and that's why he's stalling
    but one day
    he'll be sorry"

    But anyway. GREAT SONG. Props to the one who posted the lyrics. The third and fourth 'paragraphs' are ever-so-meaningful to me.

    Spitalfield = greatness.
    \m/ keep rockin it, kiddos.

    General CommentA few days ago I found out my friend was pregnant at only 14. For some reason, this song just explains it, becuase her boyfriend was an ass..

    General Commentspitalfield is the best band ever. And what makes them greater is that everyone in the band is so sweet, especially Mark rose, the lead singer.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who left her boyfriend for another guy. Now the new guy is treating her like crap, and her ex is saying that he told her so (i know you wont ever admit that
    you fell for him... i told you so) Then I'm not sure but he might have taken her back (I'm here now, don't say sorry) but told her that if she does it again, he's leaving for good (forget about your last goodbyes and you'll be sorry)

    General CommentI always thought it was more like it's her best friend telling her that he's not worth shit. But still... a pretty meaningful song. =)
