Did you know you were the girl
That made me hate blonde hair?
And I just can't wait
To make you hate me a little more
And every night that I spend
With bloodshot eyes and no end
And enough excuses here to bury me alive

So here I am
A love-worn masochist
With hearts carved straight across my chest
Letting the carpet soak up
All that's left to give

Will you swear you won't be sleeping?
'Cause I can't begin to dream to shut my eyes
And I'm biting bullets and watching phones
For no apparent reason
And I don't think that I'll make it out alive

Did you know you were the girl
That made love a four letter word?
I just can't wait
To make you hate me a little more
You made my head a mess
With the life of doctors notes
And ink blot tests
And enough empty bottles to bury me alive

So here I am
A love-worn masochist
With hearts carved straight across my chest
Letting the carpet soak up
All that's left to give

Will you swear you won't be sleeping?
'Cause I can't begin to dream to shut my eyes
And I'm biting bullets and watching phones
For no apparent reason
And I don't think that I'll make it out alive

When a smile is a close call
And my word's caught in my throat
I'm an inch away from dying
And I'm lucky if I choke

When a smile is a close call
(I wear my heart)
And my word's caught in my throat
(On my sleeve)
I'm an inch away from dying
(And you'll still)
And I'm lucky if I choke
(Walk right by me)

So here I am
A love-worn masochist
With hearts carved straight across my chest
Letting the carpet soak up all that's left to give

Will you swear you won't be sleeping?
'Cause I can't begin to dream to shut my eyes
And I'm biting bullets and watching phones
For no apparent reason
And I don't think that I'll make it out alive
No, I don't think that I'll make it out alive

    General CommentThis one's always been a favorite of mine. Too bad they broke up... I thought their lyrics were very well done. As for the meaning, I think it's about a guy who fell for a girl, but she left on him. Now he's willing to die to get her back, as he waits anxiously everyday for her to come back. I'm not too sure though.

    General CommentYeah.. JamisonParker broke up.
    Much to my dismay.
    Well.. amen to Thursday and Something Corporate
    and other bands that are keeping this genre alive.

    General Commenti think this song is somewhat a description of a break up. when he says "and everynight that I spend
    with bloodshot eyes and no end and enough excuses here to bury me alive" they basically mean "i can't sleep because you haunt my dreams" or something like that.

    General Commenti have to say, i find it ironic that [sunetsxcarcrashes] brought up SoCo in "keeing the genre alive". This song is so beautiful, and JamisonParker [like SoCo] was a great band.. RIP.
