"I Want To Know Your Plans" as written by and Max Bemis....
I want to know your plans and how involved in them I am.
When I go to sleep for good will I be forgiven?
And If you want roses you can go buy a bouquet.
If that just won't cut it, well what can I say?

You're what keeps me believing the world's not long dead,
Strength in my bones put words in my head.
When they pour out to paper, it's all for you.
'Cause that's what you do. That's what you do.

I want to know your fears, from your feet to the back of your ears.
When they raise the landing gear will your heart stay here?
If you could forgive me for being so brash, well you
you could hit me or whip me, I'd savor each lash.

You're what keeps me believing the world's not long dead,
Strength in my bones put words in my head.
When they pour out to paper.
It's all for you. Cause that's what you do.

No more fighting.
This is only a waste of our time 'cause soon we'll be leaving.
Will this strength still be mine?
I'll look out for you until I die, 'til I rot.

I'll remember you until I die, 'til I rot.

    General CommentI just wanted to say that I completely disagree with thatiswhy.

    I'm 100% positive that he says "you can go buy a bouquet". This is because Max Bemis isn't really your everyday guy. He's not going to buy this girl flowers just to make her feel better. He's saying that if she wants them, she can get them herself, and if that doesn't work then "oh well, what can he do about it" type of thing. Because she's still what keeps him believing this world's not gone dead. And that should be enough.

    well, what can i say"


    i love this song because it doesn't overplay such cliche love song lyrics...he's pretty much saying, "okay i'm an asshole sometimes, but this is who i am, and i care about you"

    General CommentAm I the only one that kind of sees connections to Jesus/Christianity in this song? it's probably me just reading too far in to the song haha but it really sounds like it could not only be for a lover, but also about Jesus.

    General Commentugh this is the story of my life.. not really but in some cases. it's such a good song the chorus is amazing and yet depressing, i wish someone would feel that way about me. i think it's just about someone who sincerely loves someone else but who isn't quite sure how the other person is feeling. go listen to it....now.
