"Dead To The World" as written by and Parker....
So so what happens in your room?
when you're all alone with me at home
going crazy over you

behind these bedroom walls
everynight I sing along with all her favorite songs
I sing until my voice is gone
until my lungs are bleedin'
tell me you don't miss these brown eyes
and that you're not in love

I hate hate the way you look at me
where's the pills for that thing that you call
"sweepin' me off my feet"
it's girls like you that keep open graves
for boys like me
that keep themselves locked up for days

behind these bedroom walls
everynight I sing along with all her favorite songs
I sing until my voice is gone
until my lungs are bleedin'
tell me you don't miss these brown eyes
and that you're not in love

Take this stupid heart
I know it's all you ever want me for
and I hope you keep it close
so everyone knows that it's all because of you
that I'm dead to the world

I won't wait, I won't wait, I won't wait
I won't wait for you to make me stop

behind these bedroom walls
everynight I sing along with all her favorite songs
I sing until my voice is gone
until my lungs are bleedin'
tell me you don't miss these brown eyes
and that you're not in love

Take this stupid heart
I know it's all you ever want me for
and I hope you keep it close
so everyone knows that it's all because of you
that I'm dead to the world

    General Commentaw. this song only has one comment?
    i love the line
    "tell me you don't miss these brown eyes and that you're not in love"
    god. i get this great visual image
    too great
    thats the point of music from an artist aspect though, to bring up emotions and memories for other people
    jamisonparker did a great job with this song.

    General Commenti really love the part where they say

    "I hate hate the way you look at me
    where's the pills for that thing that you call
    "sweepin' me off my feet"
    it's girls like you that keep open graves
    for boys like me
    that keep themselves locked up for days."

    I get the impression that this song is about a breakup that basically left him "dead to the world", because he's locked up in his room thinking about what could have/should have been.

    General Commenti think so too

    i dont understand how girls can be into JamisonParker when its us guys that really connect to the lyrics

    but as Jamison says in his new song "Paper Flowers Never Die:" "Nothing real should make sense anyway"

    General Commentanybody can connect to lyrics that are this deep and accurate.

    To me, this song means that this girl and him had an awful breakup and he's still crazy about her and he wants her to know it. Also he's trying to make her feel guilty for it becasue he knows she does everything for superficial reasons (hence the lyric "take this stupid heart, I know it's all you wanted me for"
