"Lasting Impressions" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
I'll wait til the clock strikes a nerve to spend some time with you
I can't stand to depend on the shadow I cast alone when we should
For the sake of making a statement
Let's make our presence known
Let's show them what were made of
We'll show up in our outfits we planned ahead
To meet the qualifications for a special occasion
Today is your day today is our day
Making up for lost time
Making a scene oh yeah

You've made a lasting impression
And if it doesn't feel right
Then I just can't go wrong
I've been sleeping with the lights on
So if I wake in the night
Your picture is clearly in sight

So let's meet at the mouth for a kiss
That's been so long overdue
No thanks to the two thousands of miles
And the touring we always do
(It makes me miss you more)

You've made a lasting impression
And if it doesn't feel right
Then I just can't go wrong
I've been sleeping with the lights on
So if I wake in the night
Your picture is clearly in sight

I could explode
'cause you just never, you never know
It would suit the moment perfectly

You've made a lasting impression
And if it doesn't feel right
Then I just can't go wrong
I've been sleeping with the lights on
So if I wake in the night
Your picture is clearly in sight

We can't go wrong...
We can't go wrong...

    General CommentWhat a cool song. I love the line "So lets meet at the mouth for a kiss thats been so long overdue". I also heard they are doing a full band version of this song and putting it on their next CD. Can't wait!!

    General Commenti think it means that his shadow shouldn't be the only one there. I'm guessing he wants the girls shadow to be there nex to his. So that would mean that they are both there together. if that makes sense lol. i tried.

    General Commenti feel this way everyday and i want it to change but i know it wont because me and my friend are never gonna get back together. i want her back but its not gonna happen and it does make me miss her that shes lives a while a way for me but its worth every moment when i get to skate to her house and see her. things havent felt right with me and her and she knows i cant go on with that and we are trying to change along the way. hopefully all of this will change in time.

    General Commentthis is the story of my life...well... for the past year and a half. heh.
    from the lone shadow cast, to the overdue kiss, the two thousands of miles (jersey and california are so far apart... :( ), but mostly the part where he sais...
    "we'll show up in our outfits we planned ahead to meet the qualifications for a special occasion. today is your day, today is our day."

    General Commenti've loved this song forever. for some reason, if you are acquainted with the OC and the relationship between Seth and Summer, it always reminds me of them.
    for me, the guy is singing to the girl and expressing to her that like nothign means more to him than making their presence known, their togetherness known to everyone. adn mabye this won't happen, he's still madly in love with her. for me it's basically him explaining to her how much she means to him and the impression she has made on him is one that he can't let go. and he'll love her even if it's not right for whatever reasons.

    I’ve been sleeping with the lights on
    So if I wake in the night
    Your picture is clearly in sight
    i love that line.
