"Streetcar" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
When eyes are red
We can't talk for a while
Without our sweet dumb things we say
you don't want me anyway
You don't want me anyway
so what
Why should i stay?

So goodbye to you and your life
Your new best friends
your confidence
And i'll be here when you get home

Sitting half way
Away from no where
praying for lips to touch
Holding myself
For a second
Just to catch you smile
On this side

So goodbye to you and your lies
(Two months, so many weeks)
Your new best friends
Your confidence
(turn my hours into days)
And i'll be here when you get home
(when you get home)

So goodbye to yuo and your lies
(two months so many weeks)
Your new best friends
Your confidence
(turn my hours into days)
And i'll be here when you get home
(When you get home)

(I can't feel the same without you any more)

It's just like you said
It would be

I can't feel the same
I can't feel this way
I can't feel the same without you anymore

(separation) Without you anymore
(separation) Without you anymore

    General CommentMatt Davies: "This was one of the easiest songs on the album to write because the subject was so fresh. It's about being so far from friends and family that you feel disconneted from them, which was our experieience while we were recording the album in Seattle. All the feeling and sentiment was inside me, I just had to get it down on paper. It's a cliche to say we've grown, but we have, and this is about making sense of that." - Kerrang issue 1054

    General CommentAlso, the fact that the line says "I CAN'T feel the same about you anymore" rather than " I DON'T feel the same" suggests that he's made a conscious decision not to love her anymore as it's too hard. His feelings haven't changed by themselves, he's making them change.

    General CommentThis is such a frikvin amazing song! I think it's one of their best!Tis so addictive!
    I basically think that it's about a relationship ending "I Cant feel the same about you anymore"
    telling her that he doesn't love her or see her in the way he used to, possibly because she did something "So goodbye to you and your lies" she obvioulsy lied to him about stuff.
    Im not too sure on this bit but she could also have taken him for granted "Your new best friends" perhaps she was spending more time with them than she was with him.
    "(seperation)" they've split up...it could ahve been a very slow and painful relationship "Two months so many weeks-turn my hours into days" perhaps the relationship just took so much work that it seemed like years had gone by, when really they were only together for like 2 months.
    That's just my opinion on some bits

    General CommentI also like the fact that it starts with the phone ringin and she picks it up and says hello and then the guys start as it's like he's actually ringin her up and tellin her all this stuff, how he feels and that it's over!

    General CommentThis song kicks ass, took me a while to get into it actually, there new stuff is a bit different from their old stuff, but it's amazing all the same. This song doesn't compare to 'Roses for the Dead' though, that's one of the best songs they've done so far.

    Eagerly anticipating the new album now, and seeing them Live this year at Leeds!! :D

    General CommentMatt Davies was saying that for a band that's supposedly 'Emo' that there's very few songs on 'Hours' that's about girls. I've only heard a few of the songs from the new album, it's certainly different, but if they brought out another "Casually dressed..." then they would have only been criticised.

    I love the new stuff
