"Honorable Mention" as written by Patrick Martin Stump, Peter Lewis Wentz and Joseph Mark Trohman....
I served out my detention
And in the end I got an honorable mention
In the movie of my life, starring you
Instead of me
When the moonlight, hits your bright eyes I go blind
And maybe next time
I'll remember not to tell you something stupid
Like I'll never leave your side
Like the oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
I said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack

I burnt out
My defensive
Now everything I say is taken as offensive

In the movie of my life
Starring you
Instead of me
When the moonlight
Hits your bright eyes I go blind
And maybe next time
I'll remember not to tell you something stupid
Like I'll never leave your side

Like the oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
I said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack
Oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
Said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack
Be your John Cusack
I can be your John Cusack

    Sometimes people take up so much of our thoughts that we don't even realize it until we look back and see how much of ourselves we spent on them.

    General CommentIf any of you "fans" have ever watched the dvd, they used to play this song live more than any other song even after "Take This To Your Grave" came out.

    General CommentThis is one of the few songs they enjoyed playing live, becasue it didn't suck like most of FOBEOWYGF ( I hate typing that). I love this song, and I can see how it would be about Say Anything..., which is an amazing movie. I love this song. And I'm sooo friggin happy that they are playing it on BC&U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
