I wonder why it always feels like rain
My life is like some cheap champagne
The answers don't always seem to fit
My glass is full, but it tastes like shit

I need a quick decision
and a cheap reward
I'm in my last revision
hey- hey-hey-hey

So I'll cry just a little bit longer
and I'll stay two seconds more
and I'll try to be stronger
and I'll see if you catch my fall

I can't say if what I did was right
but you let me go like your sister's kite
I can't say if what I did was wronge
still you followed me like a sing-along

I need a quick decision
and a cheap reward
I'm in my last revision
hey-hey-hey-hey

So I'll cry just a little bit longer
and I'll stay two seconds more
and I'll try to be stronger
and I'll see if you catch my fall

Yea yea yeaaaaa
yea yea yeaaaaa
yea yea yeaaaaaaaaaaaa

I've made my last decision
and got some cheap reward
I need no man's premision

(instrumental)

So I'll cry just a little bit longer
and I'll stay two seconds more
and I'll try to be stronger
and I'll see if you catch my fall
if you catch my fall
catch my fall
ya cath my fall
fall

    General CommentI love how this song start out with her screaming! Thats brillant! I think this song is about a person in a relationship with something and confused in it at the beginning of the song. Thats why i think shes screaming in the begining because shes confused and wants to let some of her anger out. But by the end she kind of knows what to do and shes gonna do it even if its a mistake and see if they 'approve' or 'fallow' it. hence the 'if you catch my fall'

    General CommentI don't like the scream because it's annoying and hurts my ears. But I love the lyrics. What she means by "And I'll see if you catch my fall" is, she's testing someone. She's seeing if this person will catch her if she falls. She's seeing if they're gonna be there when she needs them, no matter what she does. She's testing her boundaries.

    General Commenti personally enjoy the scream. i love blasting that song really loud when i'm driving around, and my friends hate it because they don't like the scream. but i agree with graffiti_mysoul, the scream is brilliant.

    the song is really good, i love the beat. something i like in all her songs is how she makes the meaning so hard to detect.

    this song basically means that in the beginning, she's angry about trying to make a decision about a boy who she's not sure she can trust, and by the end of the song, you know she gave him up and chose a different path because of the lyrics,

    "and got some cheap reward. i need no man's premision."

    General CommentI like the scream, it's cool. This song is about she wants to have sex with someone but first she wnats to know if he's loyal.

    General Commentxxx darling xxx seems absolutely right

    this song is about a decision (duh) and i think it is whether she should like him or date him so she's testing him to see if he can be there for her
