"Second Chances" as written by Michael Joseph Green, Pat John D'andrea and Clark Harrisson....
I'm sick of second chances
Cigarettes turn to ashes
I'm standing under street signs
To know the places I've been my whole life
I watch the hours pass us
Another one burns to ashes
I'm waiting for your phone call
To come and save me so you can break my fall

I will stand outside, wait for you to come find me
I will keep on my light by my bed till you get home
And I won't sleep tonight, till you get home
I won't sleep tonight, till you get home

My bed light's burning brighter
Worn out like a boxing fighter
You've got me fighting pillows
My eyes just won't close till you're at my side
The hours slip to morning
I see the sun coming up
I'm turning off the TV
I'm watching faster than you gave up on me

I will stand outside, wait for you to come find me
I will keep on my light by my bed till you get home
And I won't sleep tonight, till you get home
I won't sleep tonight, till you get home

I got your letters that you sent to me
And it feel likes summer
But your far away from me
When I need you here

I will stand outside, wait for you to come find me
I will keep on my light by my bed till you get home
And I won't (I won't) sleep tonight, till you get home
I won't (I won't) sleep tonight, till you get home

    General CommentHey um, LoveHatehero. Before you bash something, make sure nobody can bash you. I mean, really, learn how to spell. I happen to love this song. And I hate Fall Out Boy. They are posers, along with all there fans, which inclueds you...

    Now for my real comment:

    The moment I heard this song, I was hooked. The part after the bango where he sings "Oh" and then the music just kicks in, is just amazing!

    General Commenti agree with antilove...fall out boy is awful now that they are mainstream same with all the other bands i once liked...like The Academy Is and Panic at the Disco....but October Fall is amazing and their new stuff is just as good as the old

    General CommentOkay... that was special..anyway......

    Anyway, I love Fall Out Boy, an I'm finally in single digits for when I get to see them live. But anyway, I won't go into my rant about evil people who hate a band because other people like them...I'll be here all night.

    "I got your letters that you sent to me
    And it feel likes summer
    But your far away from me
    When I need you here"

    Okay, so focusing on the song again....sweet song, makes me sad sometimes, especially when PAtrick sings....which is another thing. WHAT IS HE SINGING!?!?!?!?!?!?! Definatly not the lyrics here...well, okay, first line is fine, but there it no way the word summer is in that second line...then I can hear the rest...it's just that second line...it sounds like (and I realize that this makes no sense, this is just what I'm hearing) "the beauty is much longer" I dunno, maybe I'm cracking up....

    General Commenthalf the people commenting here are rediculous.

    just because i band gets popular doesnt mean they suck. the music is still just the same as it was.

    i've been listening to fall out boy since i was 11.
    am i supposed to hate them now because they're big? no. but there's absolutely no way ill see them live ever again.

    and antilove, i hate you. so so hard.
