So hold me close but don't get too comfortable
This might be the last time you hear my voice
Is this goodbye? Or is it goodnight?
I promise to call if you promise not to cry
Because every tear you waste on me
Isn't worth the air i breath

Let's make the best of what we've had
And would you care if i don't come back?
Can you hear me scream your name?
Hear me from a thousand miles away?
Can you hear my scream your name?

So let's get this show out on the road
Who cares if we don't know where to go
Well this is goodbye, give me a kiss goodnight
I promise to call if you promise me you'll cry

Let's make the best of what we've had
I promise you i won't come back
Can you hear me scream your name?
Hear me from a thousand miles away?
Can you hear my scream your name?

I'm leaving town tonight
And i want to hear something from you
Anything from you

    General CommentAlright, never heard of this band/song until I went on my friend's myspace. I guess I'll put a meaning?
    I don't know if there are really any hidden meanings, I'm taking it pretty straightforward.

    Basically, the main person (he) in the song has broken it off with somebody(she), I guess the person(he) is hurt being the reason why he wants to see the other person(her) cry and get hurt, too. Later on, I guess they get closer again, but the main person tells the other person "hold me close but don't get too comfortable
    This might be the last time you hear my voice" because he'll leave anyways-he's had enough of the past and what's happened before in their previous try at a relationship.

    Anyways, he's telling the girl to just remember the past, make the best out of that (all the good times). At the end of the song, he's leaving but he won't be satisfied with the breakup until he hears that the person is hurt ("I promise to call if you promise me you'll cry"). Basically, I guess it's a song about breaking up and getting over the person/not caring and hoping that they'll be regretful of what they did. Or something.

    Eh, it's hard to put into words what the song means-just read the lyrics.
    I guess it's an okay song.
