"Rooftops (Hot Water Music cover)" as written by and Matt Skiba Daniel Andriano....
I got the scars to remind me
Of watching the clocks go round
Worked myself through somedays
But it put me where I am

in another time, In another place
Loving might have been in place
But for now, I'm finding myself
Fighting, standing on a rooftop screaming

Hey world, are you listening?
Listen to me!
I'm here and I'm willing
To begin again

It's another time, it's another place
We are making moral pace
But for now I'm finding myself
Fighting, standing on the doorstep screaming

Hey world, are you listening?
Listen to me!
I'm here and I'm willing
To begin again

Hey world, I'm ready to listen (burns)
Learn something new (smokes weed)
I'm here and I'm willing
To get myself though

    General CommentYou sick, sick people to not have commented on this song until now Ò_ó. This song is friggen great! In my humble opinion, Alk3's best HWM cover. Alk3 rocks my world!!

    "Hey world are you listening listen to me?
    I'm here and im hurting to begin again."

    General Commentit's pretty self explanatory, "i'm ready to listen, learn something new......." like if he stopped being stubborn and trying to block out other people's opinions................. but you already knew that.

    General CommentJust a question, I've seen conflicting lyrics on this song. I've seen: I've got the scars to remind me... and the version listed here. Could someone clear that up?
