"Heard That Sound" as written by and Michael Herrera....
Without a window to see through,
I did my time, in here without you,
Slept on the floor down in the LEC,
Meet me back home and do the mocking.

It seems like misery loves misery,
My favourite songs they keep me company,
So many memories come down to this,
I maybe be lost but I'm not hopeless.

I heard that sound a mile away
I heard that sound a mile away
All those things i wish that i could say
I heard that sound a mile away
A mile away

Came in like static off the tv,
This kinda thing over goes easy,
I meant to tell you but you were gone,
I tried to get it right, i got it all wrong

I heard that sound a mile away
I heard that sound a mile away
All those things i wish that i could say
I heard that sound a mile away
A mile away

Sat outside the show,
With nowhere else, nowhere else to go
Don't say "can't see"
It sure does sound, get to me

(Whoa oaaa) Na Na Na Na Na (Whoa oaaa)
Don't save yourself....get to me
(Whoa oa) Na Na Na Na Na
Get to you....get to me

I heard that sound a mile away
I heard that sound a mile away
All those things i wish that i could say
I heard that sound a mile away
A mile away
A mile away

    General Commenti AM into mxpx and this song is so good becuase it is so melodic that the lyrics dont even count for a while but when i did listen to the lyrics i thought it was about having acriush that doesnt kno you but you feel so much for them. He notices his crush no matter where they are but they have no idea who he is.

    General CommentUm,the lyrics are a litte off,here's the correct version:

    Verse 1:
    Without a window to see through
    I did my time,in here without you
    Slept on the floor down in LBC
    Lead me back home under the marquee

    It seems like misery loves misery
    But my favorite songs,they keep me company
    So many memories come back to this
    I may be lost but I'm not hopeless

    Chorus:
    I heard that sound a mile away
    I heard that sound a mile away
    All those things I wish that I could say
    I heard that sound a mile away

    Verse 2:
    Came in like static off the TV
    This kind of thing never goes easy
    I meant to tell ya but you were gone
    Tried to get it right,I got it all wrong

    Repeat Chorus

    Sat outside the show
    No where else to go
    Doors shut can't see
    It sure does sound good to me! Whoa!

    Whoa.........Good to me x2

    ^as for the kinda soft part behind this I think he's saying:

    Another night alone,outside the show
    Another night alone,no where to go

    Repeat Chorus

    General CommentThis whole song abviously revolvs around the chorus "I heard that sound", Now I don't understand the everything in this song, but it seems like the sound could be hope or comfort. He says "it came in like static off the tv", maby it's from God?

    That's my guess I know MXPX is a Christian band even though most of their songs don't clearly metion His name. But I think if you listen close to some songs you might hear something that gives it away.

    General CommentMxPx is amazing. And this song is AMAZING, my favorite. Everyone's felt that invincible, indestructible summer feeling before...and this song perfectly describes it.
