This is what is
What if you don't get it like I
Want you to?

So roll the dice
There goes my rule #2
So roll the dice
And don't ask why
Just keep following me
'Cause I'm following you

If she stays with you
Then you were right
If it's still here when she's gone
You're not wrong
Though I stand with this rain on my back
But it feels so damn good
To roll on

This is what I think I need
These big fat feelings
They hurt my cheek

So roll the dice
And there goes my rule #2, yeah
Roll the dice
And don't ask why
Just keep eating the food

And if she stays with you
Then you were right
If it's still here when she's gone
You're not wrong
Though I stand with this rain on my back
It feels so damn good
To belong

Rule #2: Don't be a fool
Rule #3: Get up off your knees
Rule #4: Open your door
Rule #5: Keep it alive
Rule #6: Don't be pricks
And rule #8 Don't leave it too late
Rule #9 Just take your time
Rule #1: Carpe diem

    General CommentI just love this song. The line that just gets me is "Though I stand with this rain on my back it feels so damn good to belong." This song is by far one of my favorite by Damien.

    "And if she stays with you
    Then you were right
    If it's still here when she's gone
    You're not wrong
    Though I stand with this rain on my back
    It feels so damn good
    To belong"

    General CommentFor the longest time, I had this mislabeled as Nine Crimes. And I've had the song for probably close to two years. Not sure how that happened.

    It is quite a good song. I think Rule #1 sums it up quite nicely, as far as meaning goes.

    General CommentCzechnmymail, I had this song labeled 9 Crimes for a couple years also. We must have had the song from the same source.

    General Commentwow! I thought this song would have more comments. And I actually was waiting to find answers about it.
    I have so many questions over this song. So many meanings perhaps?
    I want some answers! anyone? just a thought at least?
    and... what is that strange sound in the background?
