"Seal the Deal" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum....
Now that I know what it's like to fall freely
I can taste blood for the ones who I envy
trying to make it right, they won't catch me
now that I know, just watch what I'll do

Watch me break
watch me gently breakin' both our hearts
watch me gently breakin'
watch me gently breakin' our hearts

Now that I've sealed the deal
I don't know how to feel
now that I know that it's for real
just how am I supposed to feel?

What do you do when your mind won't reconcile
with the thing you are wanting to part by a mile
trying to make them right like a sonnet
neither one will give in so I'm down from it

Watch me fake
watch me fakin' that I know just what to do
watch me plainly fakin'
meanwhile I've got a stake in a heart

Now that I've sealed the deal
I don't know how to feel
now that I know that it's for real
just how am I supposed to feel?

Now that I've sealed the deal
I don't know how to feel
now that I know that it's for real
just how am I supposed to feel?

    General CommentI am confused as to why im the first person to comment on this song. I am not one to rate 311 songs, i feel all of them stand alone in their glory, but i must say this one is one of my personal favorites. First time i listened to it was on the 311 website (311, alt+enter) and i could not get into the song. it wasnt like most of the others, and actually i felt it shared a similarity to eons (another song i had to listen to many times over to love it) and so eventually i gave seal the deal a try, and i started to love it. every lyric hit deep in my soul.. its a beautiful song and will make you a lifelong listener.

    General Commentsounds like nick is talking about his fear of making a commitment with a girl...either marriage or just a long relationship. He no longer wants the relationship, but he's already "sealed the deal", so how is he supposed to get out without breaking the girl's heart?
