"The One You Want" as written by and Robert Pope Ryan Pope....
All poison and thrills a handful of pills waiting around nails cut to the quick yeah you
Broke what you fixed you're so underground what you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
It's said and done

But it's too late to turn your age around she's no the one you want
One settles a score with a trip to the floor look what we've found make sense of the scene
Keep a routine? standing on sound what you waiting for?
What you waiting for? it's said and done

But it's too late to turn your age around she's not the one you want
How do you do it?
With your back against the wall how do you ruin all these promises?
Promises and nothing else done.

But it's too late to turn your age around she's not the one you want so tell me something
That I didn't know.

    General Commentthe lyrics arent their best but i loove the music in this part:
    "How do you do it?
    With your back against the wall
    How do you ruin all these promises?
    Promises and nothing else"

    General CommentI love this song soo much!!! I love the fact that its loud and upbeat but it has like a perfect meaning...

    What you waiting for?
    What you waiting for?
    Said and done
    But it’s too late to turn your age around

    that part means like don't wait for it, take your chance or you'll end up with the wrong girl and then it's too late to turn your age around and try to get the girl you wanted....do your stuck with the one you dont want

    General CommentI think that line about turning your age around is great because you sometimes want to go back and change things, but we can't. We have to move on, and get older to learn more about who we will be.
