"Gifts and Curses" as written by William Ryan Key, Sean Michael Wellman-mackin, Benjamin Eric Harper, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Peter Michael Mosely....
Mary belongs to the words of a song
I try to be strong for her
Try not to be wrong for her
She will not wait for me anymore, anymore
Why did I say all those things before I was sure

She is the one
But I have a purpose
She is the one
And I have to fight this
She is the one
The villain I can't knock down

I see your face with every punch I take
Every bone I break
Its all for you
And my worst pains are words I cannot say
Still I will always fight on for you

Mary's alive
In the bright New York sky
And the city lights shine for her
And above them, I cry for her

Every thing's small on the ground below,
Down below
What if I fall then
Where would I go
Would she know

She is the one
All that I wanted
She is the one
And I will be haunted
She is the one
This gift is my curse for now...

I see your face with every punch I take
And every bone I break
Its all for you
And my worst pains are words I cannot say
Still I will always fight on for you

I see your face with every punch I take
And my worst pains are words I cannot say
Still I will always fight on for you
Fight on for you
Fight on for you

    General CommentThis truly is a beautiful song.... when I first buy a CD, I listen to all the songs straight through. "Gifts and Curses" was the only one that made me replay it. I don't know who wrote the lyrics, but man.... talk about Spidey's theme. I like how it can be seen as both being generic and being about Peter at the same time. I espeically like the rift after the second verse. Love, love, LOVE the guitar. This is an awesome song. *glomps*

    General CommentQuite Possibly my fave YC song. this is truely amazing... if it was recorded when their new cd came out they were stupid for not puting this on it. I hope YC can push this as a single to promote themselves and Spiderman 2. Truely amazing ive listened to it 100 times in a row...

    General CommentIt's on the Spiderman 2 soundtrack. Its an awesome song, the whole CD is excellent! Picked it up for about 8 bucks, not sure what it would cost other places. What can I say about yellowcard except this bad is much greatness! They made like a perfect song for the film.

    General CommentThis is such a great song, I think it should have been used on the commercials and such instead of the vindicated song. It has so much more to do with the movie and is much better.
