I feel like singing sad songs all night
I feel like tuning you out
do you want to make it in to more of a fight
is this yelling what love's all about?

(chorus)
so go on, and tear me apart
yeah just go on in straight for my chest
and maybe it's mostly my fault
'cause if I'm the only girl you ever had
I guess I can't be the best
can't be the best

and I feel like falling asleep while you scream
I feel like tuning you out
do you want to stand up and make a big scene?
put the lid down, pick up the dog shit, and shut your mouth

(chorus)

and I feel like singing sad songs all night

    General Commentthe only part i get about this song is the chorus

    "...and maybe it's mostly my fault
    'cause if I'm the only girl you ever had
    I guess I can't be the best
    can't be the best"

    i think she means that if she is the only girl that the guy ever had then there is nothing he can compare her to.

    idk. i suck at knowing what a song means
    thats why i come to this site for help

    General CommentI think this song is meant to be sarcasm towards the guy she is dating, kind of like Good Job Charlie, your so great because you make me feel so small and stupid, and everyone thinks your so amazing for yelling at you defenseless girlfriend.

    General CommentBravo Charlie--isn't that a reference to Charlie Brown?? (not entirely sure, but it's what i think of) ...he was always kinda depressed and whatnot, and if anything, this song is depressing lol. but it's also very touching and beautiful, like all of their songs. i also think that ode2jeremy has a good point about it.

    General Commenti don't think its about love, actually. it could be, but i think its a family thing.

    I feel like singing sad songs all night
    I feel like tuning you out
    do you want to make it in to more of a fight
    is this yelling what love's all about?
    ((
    the daughter of the fighting parents wants to tune out their yelling and screaming, and she wants to know if 'thats what love is' because obviously they say they love eachother but fight like hell
    ))




    (chorus)
    so go on, and tear me apart
    yeah just go on in straight for my chest
    and maybe it's mostly my fault
    'cause if I'm the only girl you ever had
    I guess I can't be the best
    can't be the best
    ((
    theyre tearing her apart by fighting all of the time and she thinks its her fault because shes their only daughter
    ))
    and I feel like falling asleep while you scream
    I feel like tuning you out
    do you want to stand up and make a big scene?
    put the lid down, pick up the dog shit, and shut your mouth
    ((it shows a whole scene in their household at the end there, that they fight about the little things like picking up the dog crap
    ))




    (chorus)

    and I feel like singing sad songs all night

    General CommentI thought this song was called "Like Daddy, Like Daughter." Maybe I have the demo version? Well if my file isn't just mislabeled, then I just strengthened the family idea.

    General Commentthat's because it IS "like daddy, like daughter." And that pretty much sums up it's meaning, too.
