The love letters that lead to bliss,
Embracing, youthful, love's first kiss,
Stops after school, the parents fooled,
Thinking they'll be home so soon,
She waits for him in parking lots and hallways everyday,
He smiles anticipating, thinking of the words to say.

Then it begins this absurd parade,
Such an unproductive way to behave,
The accusations are unending,
Tiring, no more listening,
I wish I never saw his name written on your notebook,
I wish I didn't break my neck to take another look,
I wish I never held your hand, I wish I never knew your name,
Or I just wish that from the day we met nothing ever, ever changed,
Then you put your hands on my face,
Pink roses and red valentine lace,
You're dancing like hot dripping wax,
Like your fingertips running up my back,
The truest parts of the feeling within skinned by insecurities in him,
will no longer retort to the truth,
This half-decade charace of wasted youth.

Yeah, yeah I'm dying.

Please don't say the words he screams, Please don't let me go,
Please don't cut me up again just to turn and go,
How many ways can I say I care?
Run my fingers through your silky hair,
Look up and see the pale skin of your back as you walk away again,
Look up and see the pale skin of your back as you walk away,
The ring's been set in the shape of her finger,
Still on and off the torment that lingers,
Going through and falling again,
Where are we going? Where have we been?
It's so much simpler then we make it,
Fearing the other one can fake it,
Tears and sweat and lips again,
I wonder if she'll stay with him,
The words we share are nothing short of inspired,
I love you's and I miss you's across a telephone wire,
She says she never thinks of another,
I wonder if she's a liar.

    General CommentJust wow. Teenage relationships couldn't be described much better. It starts out so pure, good intent, sneaking around and being cute. Until curiosity sets in and over rules your trust in each other. The doubts soon enough begin to define the whole relationship. And oh, how painful this is.

    I wish I never held your hand, I wish I never knew your name,
    Or I just wish that from the day we met nothing ever, ever changed.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Age of Reptiles

    and may Raw Rock kill you forever and ever, amen.

    General Commenti like the title best. the first part "If you like me check yes" shows the light-hearted attitude many people have towards relationships, while "if you don't i'll die" shows the negative feelings that are just as commonly associated.
    these views are usually never used by the same person, let alone in the same sentence like this. a lot about a person can be told by which of these views they choose.

    General CommentI think this song is about teenage relationships/teenage sex.

    I love the way he sings "of your back as you walk away" and the way he keeps screaming even after the songs over.

    General CommentI don't know, I see an eerie link between this song and the love song on the previous album? What ever happened to April?

    General Commenti agree with pretty much everyone who has commented; i think this song is about immature relationships. not only does this song have a great message, it sounds awesome too (especially the ending verses.)
    this is one of my favorite songs on the album, the title is what caught my eye. it's catchy.
