True love's a phone call away,
And for fifty dollars I'll purchase it today,
And follow me upstairs and into my room,
My heart is beating faster when I'm feeling blue,
And so there were painting on the ground,
Some homework assignment that you left lying around,
And I'm always one foot behind,
Yeah the road's gonna take me to a travelling life,

But if I leave my number, would you call?
If I leave my number, would you call?
If I leave my number, would you call?
If I leave my number, would you call?

And now every month I get checks in the mail,
Yeah my mother says my drinking's becoming an issue,
But I locked myself safe in my favorite bar,
And the sun is setting with another glass of wine,
But I look out the window, my friends they're smoking outside,
Yeah they're hugging each other like they got nothing to hide,
And so maybe there's some truth in the town,
Because if I fall, you'd lift me from the ground,

And I'm an angry drunk, and they don't mind,
Yeah I'm an angry drunk, and they don't mind,
Yeah I'm an angry drunk, and they don't mind,
Yeah I'm an angry drunk, and they don't mind,

    General CommentFrom being a huge fan of Bright Eyes when he came out with Letting Off The Happiness, All I can say about this guy is what a joke. This guy is trying so hard to be like conor he will copy his music and change lyrics around. Don't buy this crap.

    General Commentfirst off let me say that i love bright eyes with a burning hot passion.

    second. let me say that people make music to make them feel better. conor isnt the only person in the world to sing about his problems. that doesnt mean that there trying to be like him. it means that he's been through some of the same things maybe. but honestly. who fucking cares.

    good music is good music. leave it be.

    General Comment^^^^ THANK YOU!

    Its not like Conor patented his genre and his music is all so different you can't even put it into a genre. Therefore how can you say he copies off Conor you would have to go song for song because its not like Lua is anything alike Bowl of Oranges. So just give him a break. His music is good, just enjoy it without comparing him to Conor

    General Commenti think the bright eyes rip off only really pertains to their first album, and i think that album was a bit premature for kris, the other two are definitely unique.

    and i just wanted to say that on the video that comes on the cd, he plays an acoustic version of this, and instead of saying "my mother says...", he says "my label". haha. i thought that was pretty damn funny
