"So I Heard You Joined A Convent" as written by Daniel Lowder, Thomas J Minich, Jose Daniel Romero and Mark Daniel Rose....
You picked up your favorite dress
Made yourself up your very best
I know you're trying to be
Anyone's everything
I know you're dying to be
Broken and let down by me

[Repeat x2]
With those eyes that you throw me
And those lines that you sold me
I can't break if I don't bend
And she's not coming around again

[Repeat x2]
You know you've gotta leave
Get up get up get out
And don't be safe
Find yourself and your way there

Fall in fall out
And than jump in again
I'm not running I'm just walking faster
Don't let this keep you down
Why do that to yourself
What could you be after

[Repeat x2]
With those eyes that you throw me
And those lines that you sold me
I can't break if I don't bend
And she's not coming around again

[Repeat x2]
You know you've gotta leave
Get up get up get out
And don't be safe
Find yourself and your way there

[Repeat x2]
You know you've gotta leave
Get up get up get out
And don't be safe
Find yourself and your way there

    General CommentNo, these are the lyrics. Great song by the way, one of my favorites on the album.

    To me it's about a girl who can't be with a guy because she's worried what other people think. The guy is trying to tell her that nothing like that matters, which would be the whole "'its not who you are
    It's not who you know" part. The guy realizes that she's not worth it after she leaves him because she was worried about her image; "You fell for less.
    Just like i fell for you."

    General CommentYeah the "Ypu fell for less, Just like I fell for you" makes me kind of sad in a way, becuase I can totally relate. I can relate all of Spitalfield's stuff. They rock

    General CommentWow, so many of the lyrics on this site for this CD are COMPLETELY Wrong. Here, I'll Correct.

    Is that really you?
    Could you be standing there?
    Please send a perfect line to catch me in a lie and take me where
    I cannot defend what I was trying for...
    Or dying for by wishing this would end.

    Please don't say anything (hey now).
    'Cause only when my eyes are closed
    Do you feel this close to me.

    Do you feel scandalous?
    Running fingers through my hair.
    Knowing inside if I was not there.
    You'd be somewhere else.
    With somebody else.
    Your fell for less.
    Just like i fell for you.

    It's not who you are
    It's not who you know
    It's not what you are
    It's just what shows.
    It's not where you are
    It's who you're with
    It's not when you're here
    It's what you've missed

    General CommentAt first i thought it sounded like he was singing to a girl who was unfaithful and cheated on him.
    I guess what made me think that was:

    "Knowing inside if I was not there.
    You'd be somewhere else.
    With somebody else."

    &&

    "It's not where you are
    It's who you're with
    It's not when you're here
    It's what you've missed."

    I don't know. I'm probably wrong. Just posting what I thought at first.
