"Cross Me Off Your List" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
Don't let us concentrate on all those things you love to hate
It makes this all worth the wait
But causes us to separate

And I don't know how I should feel (i should feel)
These lies make it seem so real

Can you see this or wear it on your wrist
It's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed
Can you feel this cross me off your list
She's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed

With dry eyes, steady hands
I tried so hard to understand
Why you left us all alone
Three broken hearts with a broken home

And I don't know how I should feel (i should feel)
These lies make it feel so real

Can you see this or wear it on your wrist
It's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed
Can you feel this cross me off your list
She's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed

(cross me off - cross me off your list)

Can you see this or wear it on your wrist
It's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed
Can you see this or wear it on your wrist
It's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed
Can you feel this cross me off your list
She's everything you wanted
The mark you always missed

    General Commenti also think its about someone walking out and like not wanting anything to do with their family anymore. "cross me off your list".

    with dry eyes, steady hands
    i tried so hard to understand
    why you left us all alone
    three broken hearts with a broken home

    he tried so hard to understand why the parent left, but couldnt figure out what was wrong and why the person left them with a broken home and broken hearts. broken hearts because someone they loved left and a broken home because it wasnt how it was before. if that makes sense. i also think it could have something to do with cutting. because that is shown on wrists.
    "can you see this or wear it on your wrist"
    because you cant see the pain that the family was feeling but when you looked at the wrists you can tell how broken he was. so TheWarrior520 might be right but may also be wrong. lets hear what he has to say about those lines then.

    General CommentNow, I know this song is on the album that's coming out in 2006, but it's amazing. Really, this new album is going to be awesome, and it seems like they've really matured in their sound. I love it.
    Now then. I think this song is trying to show that a lot of times, people don't realize how much they mean to certain people, and how easily they can hurt them, without even really realizing it. The whole thing with cutting wrists shows that when people do cut, it's not always for attention. It keeps them feeling normal, as a way to deal with some feeling they can't explain that makes them uncomfortable. I think JT wanted to point that out, and shows that someone is being blind to the girl's feelings. [clare]

    He's getting this Feeling that he cant understand. It's something he wants to feel, "the mark he always missed". Can he wear this feeling on his wrist in the form of pain? No. This feeling isnt pain. "I dont know how I should feel, these lies make it all seem real".

    Not about parents breaking up k.

    General Commentwhatever this song is about, it reminds me of my father, and it makes me cry.

    'can you feel this or wear it on your wrist? She's everything you wanted, the mark you always missed'

    The significance to me would be how my father, he doesnt understand how important i am/should be to him, so i'm 'the mark you always missed'
    Also, 'can you feel this?' I don't think he feels anything. Heh as hurt me a lot, mentally. I seldom ever see him now.

    General CommentI think this is about a guy & a girl who were in a relationship. From the girls side, he was always talking about everything he hated in his life, & then it caused them to seperate becuz she got sick of it.
    He was always negative & it hurt her. So I think the song about showing him what he ended up doing to her
    can you see this?
    or wear it on your wrist [like he's proud of it]
    it's everything you wanted
    the mark you always missed[how to him he never seemed to get what he wanted in life]
    can you feel this? [cause he never felt anything.]
    cross me off your list [like he meant to do it the whole time.]
    she's everything you wanted[a new girl.]
    the mark you always missed[finally getting whats he THOUGHT he wanted.]

    with dry eyes, steady hands[it doesnt hurt her cause she knows she has to move on to be happy, for her.]
    i tried so hard to understand

    I dont know. I'm probably wrong. But this is the way I see it because this basically happened to me.
