"Rollerskates" as written by and Simone Katherine Rubi Daniel S. Judd....
Let's take a train down to the lake
It's such a gorgeous day out
We'd be crazy
If we stayed in

Just
Just because we're bored
It doesn't mean we have to
Continue being bored

[Chorus]
To all my friends I hope
That every word I wrote
Finds you well you know
I loved you all alone

We'll spike the soda cans with booze
The weather on the news says
We should expect
The sun to make it's long

Awaited return
On the big blue screen
Now this I gotta
See for myself

[Chorus]

To all my enemies
I welcome memories
I hope these words could mend
Like a swift kick to the hand

Go find a spot to stop and
Set up shop and
Appreciate the girls
On rollerskates

We'll hide our true intentions
And our true dispositions
Behind our calm demeanors
And some fucking dark sunglasses

Let's blow an entire afternoon
To just enjoy the view
It feels good to have nothing
That I have to do

[Chorus]

To all my enemies
I welcome memories
I hope these words could mend
Like a swift kick to the hand

[Chorus]

To all my enemies
I welcome memories
To all my friends you know

I loved you all alone
I loved you all alone
I loved you all alone
I loved you all alone
I loved you all alone

    General Commentthis has to be one of my favorite songs because it sounds like my life.
    spiking soda with booze is something i enjoy doing.
    i take the train around all the time (even IN CHICAGO).
    TOP is amazing.

    General Commenthere's some corrections...

    "Let's the train down to the lake
    It's such a gorgeous day out
    We'd be crazy
    If we stayed indoors
    Just because we're poor
    Doesn't mean we have to
    Be caught being bored"


    and i'm pretty sure "And our true dispositions" should be "And our drunk dispositions" (because it's talking about hiding being drunk behind calm demeanors and dark sunglasses--like a hangover). and all of the "I loved you all alone"s should be "I loved you all along."

    General Commenti think this song is just about enjoying life and spending time with friends. it kind of reminds me of when my friends and i took the train to chicago and spiked our gatorade bottles with vodka.

    but i saw these guys live at warped tour over the summer. they were pretty awesome.

    General CommentI saw these guys in concert just last weekend with Jack's Mannequin. They're really something! Very good live, and I absolutely love this song.

    Only, yeah... the lyrics are a bit messed up.

    It's:
    "I hope these words connect
    Like a swift kick to the head"

    "I hope these words connect
    Like a swift kick to the head"

    General CommentAlright I found multiple corrections to be made
    And every lyrics site I went to made the same mistakes:

    "We'll hide our true intentions
    And our true dispositions
    Behind our calm demeanors
    And some fucking dark sunglasses
    Let's blow an entire afternoon
    To just enjoy the view
    It feels good to have nothing
    That I have to do"

    It SHOULD be (And this is comming from what I hear but I KNOW the last part is wrong [turn your volume up louder])

    We'll hide our true intentions
    And our cultural* dispositions
    Behind our calm demeanors
    And some fucking dark sunglasses
    Let's blow an entire afternoon
    To just enjoy the view
    It feels good to have nothing
    BETTER TO DO

    * I'm not sure if this is right

    I love the song though

    General CommentTreaty of Paris is an awesome local band. I've loved them since the first time I saw them as a little-known opener in the Metro. This is definitely my favorite song of theirs.

    But wow. So many things wrong with these lyrics. Let's start at the beginning:

    "We'd be crazy
    If we stayed inDOORS
    Just because we're POOR
    It doesn't mean we have to
    GO ON being bored

    Chorus
    To all my friends I hope
    That every word I wrote
    Finds you well you know
    I loved you all alonG"

    "To all my enemies
    UNwelcome memories
    I hope these words CONNECT
    Like a swift kick to the HEAD"

    "WE'LL find a spot to stop and
    Set up shop and
    Appreciate the girls
    On rollerskates
    We'll hide our true intentions
    And our DRUNK dispositions
    Behind our calm demeanors
    And some fucking dark sunglasses
    Let's blow an entire afternoon
    To just enjoy the view
    It feels good to have nothing
    BETTER to do"

    Hope this helps.
