"The Mess" as written by and Cole/parfitt....
This time I've closed the door,
And I know that you'll be leaving,
We've been through this before
But your looks can be deceiving,
You've made your mark on me,
It's plain as day to see,
I treat you carefully but you don't
See me

Your world has got you wrapped around my neck

I can hear you leaving,
Look at the mess you've left behind
I still hear you screaming
I hope you're gone for good this time

You never said goodbye,
And that's ok with me,
This time I've locked the door,
And thrown away the key

I don't have time for this, (endless apologies)
It comes as no surprise that you don't see me

Your world has got you wrapped around my neck

I can hear you leaving,
Look at the mess you've left behind
I still hear you screaming
I hope you're gone for good this time

This time I've closed the door,
We've been through this before,
You made your mark on me,
It's plain as day to see,
I treat you carefully but you don't
See me

Your world has got you wrapped around my neck

I can hear you leaving,
Look at the mess you've left behind
I still hear you screaming
I hope you're gone for good this time

    General CommentI love this song..and i was suprised that no one had entered the lyrics yet..so i took the liberty of doing it.maybe it's a newer song. idk. it's pretty much self explanatory,the guy had another fight with his girl and this time he doesn't want her back because she's caused him so much pain

    also the song Vegas is awesome by this band.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and just well put together. I'm so glad someone else enjoys this band! I do believe they're new to the mainstream. I heard them first on the radio which suprised me.
    Lintball, pretty much nailed what the song was about.

    General CommentGood song, really put together and Fivespeed has a great lyrical voice. Just discovered them, but I hope we hear more. Another song about love but it rocks, not your typical sounding love song
