"Little Girls Pointing And Laughing" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
(We can't)
I still can
(Stop now)
Remember what you did.
Your eyes filled
(We've got)
Discomfort
(To slow down)
Bare foot in a public washroom.

Spill on me your nostalgia
And cataracts
That fell
Behind self-conscious eyes.

Warm water made
(Please just give me back my heart)
This hurt so good
(Well it's been too long)
Through ivory rain
(And I will burn no more)
And cutthroat soap box derby racers

(Oh God. Hurt so fucking good. Little girls pointing. Pointing. Pointing and laughing.)

I want you to ruin me.
(Please just give me back my heart)
Ruin me.
(Well it's been too long)
I. Want. You. To ruin me.
(And I will burn no more)
(Tired of all these lies)
I. Want you. To ruin me.
(And elsewhere eyes of yours)
Ruin me.
(So I will scream)
I want you to
(And dream of what's to come)
Ruin me.

    General CommentThese are the 100% correct lyrics:

    (We can't)
    I still can
    (Stop now)
    Remember what you did.
    Your eyes filled
    (We've got)
    Discomfort
    (To slow down)
    Bare foot in a public washroom.

    Spill on me your nostalgia
    And cataracts...
    That fell
    Behind self-concious eyes.

    Warm water made
    (Please just give me back my heart)
    This hurt so good
    (Well it's been too long)
    Through ivory rain
    (And I will burn no more)
    And cutthroat soap box derby racers

    (Oh God. Hurt so fucking good. i just want you to fucking wreck me. i want you to wreck me. i want you to ruin me.)

    I want you to ruin me.
    (Please just give me back my heart)
    Ruin me.
    (Well it's been too long)
    I. Want. You. To... ruin me.
    (And I will burn no more)
    (Tired of all these lies)
    I. Want you. To ruin me.
    (And elsewhere eyes of yours)
    Ruin me.
    (So I will scream)
    I want you to...
    (And dream of what's to come)
    Ruin me.

    Song MeaningTo me, this song seems to be about someone who is "trapped" in a relationship with another person. The other person doesn't have their heart in it, perhaps cheating ("Tired of all these lies and elsewhere eyes of yours") and the song's narrator knows it. However, they also know that it will hurt to lose the person, but they don't care, they just want out.

    "Please just give me back my heart" with "I want you to ruin me" in the background seems to demonstrate this to me. It is as if the singer is saying "I don't care if I'm reduced to nothing after this, I just want out."

    General CommentI think the bare foot in a public washroom part is a metaphor for vulnerability.

    General CommentI like this song lots - the lyrics and the music. But I just can't listen to it. There's something really sad about that I just can't put my finger on. It has a really strange effect on me...it's difficult to explain. I guess you could say it's unsettling. I dunno....I'm a 'tard

    General CommentI interpret this song to be about a girl admitting something awful she did to the lyricist. She cares about him, but is not on the same page as him.

    I still can remember what you did. Your eyes full of discomfort, bare foot in a public washroom.

    She's telling him, and really uncomfortable about it, very out of place.

    Spill on me your nostalgia like warm water and cataracts that that fell behind self conscious eyes.

    The accused is trying to soften the situation and make him feel comfortable by reminiscing about the good times in the past.

    Hurt so good through ivory rain and cut throat soap box derby racers. I want you to ruin me.

    The realization that it hurts so bad, but maybe he was asking for it by staying with her, it's clear that he was optimistic about someone who didn't deserve it, and the "I want you to ruin me" is self post-reaction.

    please just give me back my heart, it has been too long and i will burn no more...please just give me back my heart, it has been too long and i will burn no more, tired of all these lies and elsewhere eyes of yours, so i will scream and dream of whats to come.

    Dallas' part is kind of summarizing what he now feels. He's been hurt, and wants to just forget the person and move on to what's to come, because he knows staying with her is just asking for more of the same, it's hard to get over some people though, even if they hurt you worse than you ever felt you could have been hurt.

    Hey, it's emo music, if you're looking for some existential explaination to this stuff, you're looking in the wrong place, if you're looking for unusually sincere lyrics and great instrumentals, you've come to the right place.

    General CommentIf anyone is wondering what Dallas is singing, here's his lyrics:

    George Lyrics:
    I still can remember what you did. Your eyes full of discomfort, bare foot
    in a public washroom. Spill on me your nostalgia like warm water and
    cataracts that that fell behind self conscious eyes. Hurt so good through
    ivory rain and cut throat soap box derby racers. I want you to ruin me.

    Dallas Lyrics:
    We can't stop right now
    We've got to slow down
    Please just give me back my heart
    And I will burn no more
    Please just give me back mt heart
    And I will burn no more
    Tired of all these lies and elsewhere eyes of yours
    So I will scream and dream of what's to come
