I should lay around and curse the day
that i fell upon your sword
cause i'm a poor boy
and your smile is a drug
that i can't afford
anymore

you're a tongue-tied talker with sleepy eyes
that always gets the last word
you're not broken
you're just tired and it shows

when you're done acting tough
you only take two and a quarter to get fucked up
and when you say you're in love
you just sound like you're giving up

when you're done acting tough
you only take two and a quarter to get fucked up
and when you say you're in love
you just sound like you're giving up

to say i'll be alright would be a risky bet
cause i'm about as good as i'm going to get
these chains are tight
and the courage that i showed
left a long time ago
just so you know

when you're done acting tough
you only take two and a quarter to get fucked up
and when you say you're in love
you just sound like you're giving up

when you're done acting tough
you only take two and a quarter to get fucked up
and when you say you're in love
you just sound like you're giving up

    General Commenti love the guitar in this song... it's so sad and sincere sounding. could be about not getting over an ex, but has lots of references to drinking...

    General Commentthis is an incredible song, ive had it on repeat for 2 days straight and am still not sick of it. I think its about a girl with a drinking problem, who is messing this guy around with how much she drinks. And he is finally realising that she is only doing him harm.
    Love it.

    General CommentI think it's about liking a girl who chose someone over him who he thinks was not who she would be more happy with. It sounds like he's bitter she's not with him.

    General CommentHe wishes he never fell in love with this girl, he wants to tell her, but his courage has failed him and gone far away. The girl is obviously not ok, and she's damaged.

    He wants her to admit that she likes him and that she's in love, cause he's bound to her with chains, which are tightening. And they're hurting both her and him if things get left as they are...

    and he wants her to tell him. but to her, it would be an expression of weakness and need. Something she cant handle. thus she acts tough to stop things from becoming too real and desperate i guess.

    totally in love with him.

    General Commenti don't think that he is saying that there is anything wrong with her.

    General Commenti don't think there is damaged he says that she's "not broken". i think this girl has had some many problems that she can't handle or do anything right in a relationship. She just can't seem to find her way. She sounds like she just says she's in love cause it's easier for her. i don't know.
