Don’t take what I say to bed with you and don’t get used to that which I do, or you’ll only feel used in the end. Don’t weigh your heavy head with those words that I haven’t said. Don’t confuse that which I don’t do with what will be done in time. You’ve gotta wise up, for christ's sake take care of yourself. Cause a dirty boy don’t make clean breaks. Oh Sara(h), if there’s something that you want from me, just ask, you might receive. I’m gonna take some time to sift through this conflicted time and figure out why I can’t sleep. Oh my greed (?) and my guilt have surely gotten the best of me. You’ve gotta wise up, get out of this mess while you can, cause a dirty boy like me don’t fight clean. Oh Sara(h), if there’s something that you want to do with me, just ask, cause I’m up for anything.

    General Comment:I was really shocked to discover that no one had posted a comment in reference to this song.
    This song holds the most meaning for me due to the fact that I feel that the guy I am involved with takes this stance on our relationship.
    This song influences my view and how I am now dealing with things.
    'You’ve gotta wise up, for christ's sake take care of yourself. Cause a dirty boy don’t make clean breaks.'
    honestly.

    General Comment:That sucks your boyfriend has this stance on your relationship. The song is definitely honest though; he's admitting he's unsure. I really love this song; its probably my favorite from the record. I like the guitar during the "Sarah" parts especially.
