I shoe gaze and pretend to tie my laces
To avoid, all your perfect faces
I’m sorry, I can’t compete with your mouths
Bite your tongue, until it bleeds
Talking about someone who doesn’t exist
Try to bring me down over some girls I’ve kissed
Put your seatbelt on
‘Cause when we stop this
I don’t want you falling
Apart on me
I cut my finger
On the application form.. for.. sanity

Play with scissors! x2

I’ve never had, my lip bitten
By your best friend, so get over it
You lose, you lose
“I’m too old for you”
I’ve said this line so many times
If I auditioned, I’d get the part

I wanted you to know that
Even though you’ll try
Your little lines of adjectives
Are my motivation to smile
When I, when I laugh
Its you, its you, thanks
What use is a bullet-proof vest when
You have no heart to protect?
And if you could only see me
It’d be a wake up call
“hearts” fall.

Love me, hate me, I’ll be happy
Reading these messages forever
Reading these messages forever

As much sense as a chat show…
For an insomniatic honey bee
Spin the motto
Your Christmas list
Brand new conscience, fingertips
And the ability to show respect.

    as if this song has no comments!
    whats wrong people!!
    all living under a rock!!?

    this song is one of the best lyrical songs ive ever heard
    tms have the best lyrics
    i think this one is about how he likes this girl, but he feels like shes way to good for him
    so he tries his best to fit in and all
    then I THINK they go out
    and she accuses him of cheating
    but he didnt
    so they break up but he still loves her and always will

    thats what i think
    all yous better start leaving comments!!
    love♥

    General CommentThis song was the first TMS song I ever heard & I instantly fell in love :[ sad they've split.

    oh&why are the lyrics in a dodgey order, with parts missing?
    Like, what does he actually sing after the part that goes "and the ability to show respect"?
    -cause it's the best part of the song & i can never sing along properly.
