Hey Amanda
Where'd you find these crazy boys this time?
They say you're pretty but you don't think they're right.

Hey amanda
While you're staring at your telephone tonight
do you feel like turning it off, turning off all of the lights?

Pin your wings down
if it's over now
Pin your wings down
just take a chance somehow

Hey amanda
who just threw your heart away this time?
And when you're crying on your bed does he help keep you alive?

Pin your wings down
if it's all over now
Pin your wings down
just take a chance somehow

I'll take the blame if you take me home now
Cuz there's no place left for trust in all this pain
And you know when it rains in this town I get washed away
Without a sound
So pin my wings down

if it's over
if it's over now

Pin your wings down
if it's over now
Pin your wings down
just take a chance somehow

    General CommentI love this song! Mostly because my name is Amanda and it relates to me sometimes...

    I think it is about an insecure but beautiful girl who flirts/sleeps around/talks to a lot of guys in hopes of getting attention from them. She does get a lot of attention but not the right kind... and at night she cries because she doesnt have what she really wants, a real love. But the singer is trying to get her to take a chance on him and maybe she will find what she wants in him...

    General Commentbasically about a "prude girl" who doesnt hook up with any guys cause either shes too hot or shes scared to fall in love . Pin Your Wings means that even though she thinks of her self as an angel she should lower her status and just have fun

    General Commenti think its exactly the opposite of what you said. Im pretty certain its about a girl who hooks up a lot, and continues to do so regardless of the hurt is causes her and him

    "Hey amanda
    who just threw your heart away this time?
    And when you're crying on your bed does he help keep you alive?"

    General Commenti like how everyone sees this song totally differently
    the really confusing lines are

    Hey amanda
    While you're staring at your telephone tonight
    do you feel like turning it off, turning off all of the lights?

    General Commenthere's my interpretation of these parts...

    "Hey Amanda
    Where'd you find these crazy boys this time?
    They say you're pretty but you don't think they're right. "

    she's pretty, and people tell her she is but she is naive and doesnt belive them.

    "Hey amanda
    While you're staring at your telephone tonight
    do you feel like turning it off, turning off all of the lights?"

    she falls for a guy, and stays up all night by the phone waiting for him to call, he doesnt and she feels like giving up

    "Hey amanda
    who just threw your heart away this time?
    And when you're crying on your bed does he help keep you alive? "

    the guy she was with was a flake and fucked her over, she's upset and belives he was her world.

    "I'll take the blame if you take me home now
    Cuz there's no place left for trust in all this pain
    And you know when it rains in this town I get washed away
    Without a sound
    So pin my wings down "

    he'll take the blame of the other guy just as long as he gets to be with her.
    hes saying she can trust him and that anyone else is gonna hurt her again.
    when she cries over the other guy, she forgets about him and how he feels about her.
