"Kiss Yourself Goodbye" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Blank face little girl
Your colors running down
It’s the one you love
Cry out my world, this copulated kiss
It’s the last that you deserve

I’ve done wrong
I’ve been gone
It’s the one you love
Drink down and your candles burn
Away, away

Dreaming you, is so easy, yeah
If it was up to me, then you would cry tonight
If it was up to you

Take you, take me
I can’t go with you now
Don’t you wish I’d try
Left just a trace, it's growing colder still
So kiss yourself goodbye

I’ve done wrong
I’ve been gone
It’s the one you love
One drink and your candles burn
Away, away

Dreaming you, is so easy, yeah
If it was up to me, then you would cry tonight
When it's up to you, you kiss yourself goodbye

Let go, push your daisies
A thousand maybes, a thousand left I'm done
A white glow, just for tasting
A life for wasting (it’s the one you love)
And I look into your eyes, it's the one you love

Last one then I fill you up today, today
How can you sleep
When dreaming you, is so easy, yeah
If it was up to me, then you would cry tonight
When its up to you, you kiss yourself goodbye
You would cry tonight (yeah)
So kiss yourself goodbye (yeah)
You would cry tonight (yeah)
So kiss yourself goodbye

    General CommentI am a bit confused by this song, but it seems to me as if this certain guy likes a girl and he idealizes her and loves her, but she lives in her own little world where everything seems dark and bleak.

    General CommentOne question:

    WHY HASN'T ANYONE (besides lalunacreciente above) COMMENTED ON THIS BRILLIANT SONG?!!?

    I love the intro. I agree with you, i reckon it's about this particluar guy who loves this girl, but their is some twist to the relationship. i can't figure out what it is exactly though :S

    General Commentokay, down to business.... I think this song is about a guy (ex boyfriend maybe) who is getting tired of consoling a girl who tries to (or threatens to) attempt suicide because of a boyfriend/lover/etc.... here are my reasons why:

    "your colors running down"- Mascara running down from crying eyes perhaps...

    "It's the one you love"- the lover/boyfriend causing the suicidal thoughts

    "this copulated kiss, the last that you deserve"- yeah, making her feel better through sexual gratification and wanting to end it.

    "I've done wrong, I've been gone"- guy feels guilty for not being around.

    "If it was up to me, you'd cry tonight"- an alternitive to suicide maybe?

    "When it's up to you, kiss yourself goodbye"-meaning she's threatening to commit suicide, and it also sounds like some comtempt on the guys part, saying he won't let her use him to make her feel better anymore.

    "Push up Daisies"- a metaphor for dying (I'll explain for anyone who may not know this expression: When you die they put you in the ground and you become basically fertilizer, making plants like daisies grow...)

    "A thousand maybes, a thousand left I'm done"- all the girls excuses and threats, the "I'm done" reiterating his feelings of being used.

    "A white glow. just for tasting" maybe this is a youthanism for using coccain or another white colored drug... maybe how she's killing herself? i'm not sure though as i have never done drugs.. what do you guys think?

    "a life a-wasting"- yeah pretty self explanitory....

    anyways, this is a good song.... the intro is indeed awesome... that's just my two cents, anyone got any other ideas?

    General CommentIntriguing lyrics! When I first listened to the song, I felt it was about controlling someone in a relationship. One partner is very domineering, read: sadistic. "You would cry tonight / So kiss yourself goodbye. She's the submissive one, she's totally in his posession. She is "easy" because she is vulnerable. He wears down her resistance: "Drink down and your candles burn / Away, away." He would taunt/torture her by being distant emotionally and sexually: Blank face little girl / Your colors running down / It’s the one you love / Cry out my world, this copulated kiss / It’s the last that you deserve" and "Take you, take me / I can’t go with you now / Don’t you wish I’d try / Left just a trace, it's growing colder still / So kiss yourself goodbye" when he succeeds in making her dependent on him. White is the colour of purity. When the girl makes a game of picking off the petals, he only wants to hear a clear yes or no, not maybe. Therefore he only accepts complete submission. Let this be a warning: if you end up with this guy, you will literally "kiss yourself goodbye."

    General Commenti thought that (if we're going with the suicide idea, which i think seems to make perfect sense)
    that the line A white glow, just for tasting
    was like when you see a white light when you die
    supposedly
    and because shes threatening to kill herself but not actually doing it, its ilke she wants a taster of death
    but not the actual thing?maybe?

    General Commentalso on the suicide idea..."blank face little girl" could refer to being dead maybe??? also "drink down and your candles burn away" and "one drink and your candles burn away" could also be how shes killing herself and also the whole "kiss yourself goodbye" idea could mean that he's going to end it so she should kiss herself goodbye if she really is suicidal... and the whole "take you take me/ i cant go with you now" meaning he won't die with her...the whole suicide thing really makes a lot of sense

    General CommentOk, I actually was saying goodbye to my ex girlfriend because shes not the same person I feel in love with. shes betraying who she is. She was the best person I've ever met in my life with the incredible morals, and by the way naturaly beautiful.
    And I think this song is talking about a guy (an ex) who is ashamed of himself for whatever he's done, and hes done everything he can to help bring her back to herself, who she really is. And I think the metaphors he used are talking about her killing herself, but also her killing who she is as a person. Almost like a funeral of the incredible person she was, "One drink and your candles burn" the girl may not be a drinker, but shes betraying herself and drinking. "Your colors running down" the colors of herself, her true colors. "If it was up to me, then you would cry tonight"... he would rather have her realize what shes doing, in which would make her cry, instead of having her continue these mistakes, her betraying herself. "when it's up too you, You kiss yourself goodbye" meaning that if he doesn't step in and make her realize what shes doing she'll never be her again. "When dreaming you, is so easy" its all about her and her wanting to be selfish and just party (not her) or he dreams of her coming back, thats all he can think about.

    Thats just one opinion.

    This song I think can mean alot of different things and can be taken 7 different ways, thats why it's a song, so everyone can realate to it.
