"19" as written by and Mike/hardcastle Oldfield....
I wear myself too thin
Can't help myself this time
I'm on the outside looking in
Can't see myself this time

Don't wanna go, don't wanna go
Don't wanna drive back home
There's nothing there for me
It's one a. m.
It's two a. m.
It's four in the morning

Did I think she'd be here?
Did I fool myself again?
I think I did
I think I fooled myself again
Again, again, again
I fooled myself again

If I spend just one
Just one more night
Just one more night
Being mediocre then
Just one more night
Just one more night
Well I'll scream at the top of my lungs
Just one more night
Just one more night
Being mediocre then
Just one more night
Just one more night
Well I'll scream at the top of my lungs but it falls on deaf ears

I wear myself too thin
Can't help myself this time
I'm on the outside looking in
Can't see myself this time

Don't wanna go, don't wanna go
Don't wanna drive back home
There's nothing there for me
It's one a. m.
It's two a. m.
It's four in the morning

Did I think she'd be here?
Did I fool myself again?
I think I did
I think I fooled myself again
Again, again, again
I fooled myself again

If I spend just one
Just one more night
Just one more night
Being mediocre then
Just one more night
Just one more night
Well I'll scream at the top of my lungs
Just one more night
Just one more night
Being mediocre then
Just one more night
Just one more night
Well I'll scream at the top of my lungs

I scream out loud
But no one hears a sound
I take my life with lack of sleep
I believe the things I feel
The things I see are fooling only?

Scream out loud
But no one hears a sound
I take my life with lack of sleep
I believe the things I feel
(scream out loud, but no one hears?)
The things I see are fooling only
(a sound, I take my life with lack of sleep)
Scream out loud
(I believe the things?)
But no one hears a sound
(I feel, the things I see?)
I take my life with lack of sleep (are fooling only
I believe the things I feel
(scream out loud, but no one hears?)
The things I see are fooling only
(a sound, I take my life with lack of sleep)
Scream out loud
(I believe the things?)
But no one hears a sound
(I feel, the things I see?)
I take my life with lack of sleep (? are fooling only)
I believe the things I feel
(scream out loud, but no one hears?)
The things I see are fooling only
(a sound, I take my life with lack of sleep)

Scream out loud
But no one hears a sound
I take my life with lack of sleep
I believe the things I feel
The things I see are fooling only -
Scream out loud
But no one hears a sound
I take my life with lack of sleep
I believe the things I feel
The things I see are fooling only me

    General CommentI think there's more at the end but I don't know those lyrics. Pencey Prep is Frank Iero (my chemical romance)'s old band. They rock. I think this song is about him getting stood up or them breaking up maybe.

    General Commentalright, so after i read this, i listened to 19 over and over and over trying to figure out what he is saying at the end... its hard to understand because he is singing it in a round but here is what im pretty sure it is:

    I scream out loud
    But no one hears a sound
    And take,
    I'm left with lack of sleep,
    Believe the things
    I feel
    The things I see
    Im fooling only me

    makes sense... right?

    i also tried to figure out the lyrics to attention reader... i got most of them, but there are a few parts he screams and i dont understand...

    i suppose this song is about getting stood up? thats my best guess

    General CommentThe lyrics at the end go:
    I scream out loud but no one hears a sound
    I take my like with lack of sleep
    Believe the things I feel
    The things I see
    Are fooling only me.
    The lyrics just get repeated over and over at the end.
    If you have the Hearbreak in Stereo album then it's got the lyrics on the inlay.

    General Commentto B12:

    im pretty sure Marquee girl isnt by the same Pencey Prep, i remember i got a couple of songs off of limewire and they were by a different band with the same name. but i dont think the other band is signed and that how they managed to have the same name, fools!
