You never fell for me
You fell for how it felt
You fell for being held

So, who's going to fill in
Now my arms refuse to bend?
Who's going to fill in?

And who's going to fill the days with me
With Canadian Club and old movies?
We don't know what we want, but we're both needy
But what do we need, really?

I never follow through
I fall into the groove
The boy and girl routine

So, who's going to fill in
Now the suspect fled the scene?
Who's going to fill in?

And who's going to spend the nights with you
Once the bars close down and the city sleeps?
We don't know what we want, but we're both needy
But what do we need really?

And lately I've been living on my own
And I've fucked up so many times
I'm better off alone
You know I'm better off alone

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I love all the lyrics changes made on the acoustic version.

    And who's gonna spend the nights with you
    Hold you in their arms - watching bad TV

    Ain't that the truth.

    General Commentthis song is incredable. basically sets the story line for what i'm going through right now. This band is amazing and as i've said before, this is truely the "album of the year" for 04.

    General Commenteveryone's felt like this before. for whatever reason, god made us with a fatal flaw. but if you think about it, what's wrong with being needy as long as you're happy and you can stave off loneliness for another night? tim would argue: absolutely nothing. i would tend to agree.
