"It's A Hit" as written by and Cain/murray/tapper....
I should have known that this would happen from the start
This kind of function's going to have to fall apart
I guess before I would have sworn that we were friends
And in this problem must award some logic trend

Well, I still don't understand what this whole thing's about
And all the words that you said are somehow stuck in my mouth
This was going so well, but I don't know what I did
All I really can tell is

It's a hit
It's a hit
It's a hit

Well, there's only so much drama I can stand
This is just about as far as I will bend
So get your hands off my lapel because I think it's time to go
You ought to know that or you ought to know

And I still don't understand what this whole thing's about
And all the words that you said are somehow stuck in my mouth
This was going so well, but I don't know what I did
All I really can tell is

It's a hit
It's a hit
It's a hit

As I was falling down the stairs and out the door
Yes, I heard you yell my name, but I'm not sure
You know, before I could have sworn that we were friends
Somehow that's how these parties always seem to end

Well, I still don't understand what this whole thing's about
And all the words that you said are somehow stuck in my mouth
This was going so well, but I don't know what I did
All I really can tell is that
I always get hit

Well, I still don't understand what this whole thing's about
And all the words that you said are somehow stuck in my mouth
I guess I might take it back, but I'm not sure what I did
All I know for a fact is

It's a hit
It's a hit
It's a hit

    General CommentWow, what an amazing and powerful song. I guess i would say it's about two people that were on the edge of becoming a couple and then they had a falling out and he has no idea why. But I just love the melody and beat of the song, very powerful and catchy!

    General CommentI think the lyric is supposed to be,
    "Maybe this problem points toward some larger trend"
    not
    "And in this problem must award some logic trend"

    Also, I don't think the lyric is "You oughta know that or you oughta know" Cause it really doesn't sound like that

    And why doesn't this song have more comments??? Its freakin awsome, One of the best off the album!
    I think its pretty much about two people in a relationship where the girl is mad at the guy for some reason and he doesn't know why.
    "This was going so well, but I don't know what I did, All I really can tell is, I've been hit!" That pretty much explains it
    "I guess I might take it back, but I'm not sure what I did" He's saying he's probably going to apologize even though he doesn't know what she's mad about.
