So with this drink
I can surrender
And ten later I pretend
To have you
To hold you
I relive all the things I should've said
Like "What's wrong"
"I'm not well"
"200 miles yeah it sure is far"
Can we go back
When we we're honeymooning and the time was right?

Wait for me, I'll make it up

So I'll kill the doubt
I'll put the fire out
Extinguish everything
(Might even forget your name)
Waiting for you
Come back
And let me off the hook again

So with this drink
I can forget her
And ten later I pretend
That it's not me, it's just not me
I'll place the blame on anyone I see
So forget it
I'm done with this
Too many feelings of an old regret
Convincing
It's convincing
The way I lie
And leave it all behind

So I'll kill the doubt
I'll put the fire out
Extinguish everything
(Might even forget your name)
Waiting for you
Come back
And let me off the hook again

Wait for me, I'll make it up

Waiting for you to come back
And let me tell you off again

    General Comment"So with this drink
    I can forget her":
    I think it's about him drinking away all his worries about a certian girl.

    So I'll kill the doubt
    I'll put the fire out
    Extinguish everything
    (Might even forget your name)":
    Is him forgetting her, 'extinguishing' everything they had.

    Houston Calls are an awsome band... get into them! xxx

    General Commenti love this song. seriously.
    but at the part where they repeat "Wait for me, I'll make it up"
    in the background of one of the versions i've heard they're saying something.
    does anyone know what they're saying?
    my friend and i tried to figure it out for dayss + we couldn't :]

    I saw them when they supported Hellogoodbye on their UK tour
    They dedicated this song to me and my friends, as we were the only people dancing, =]
