Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
it's safe to say you've changed
(away, away, away)
Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
it's safe to say you're only hip
as in hipocrit, critically unacclaimed

Stop looking at the mess that we've made
And why the hell is every other night is us making mistakes
We'll work it out
Maybe it will work out itself
Where tomorrow takes us no one can tell
I took the long way home today
hoping that we wouldn't cross paths unusually
It's a part of my routine
and I am trying to change
I'll take the long way

Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
it's safe to say you've changed
(away, away, away)
Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
you're only hip
as in hipocrit, critically unacclaimed
Hip as in hipocrit, your changing your name
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woahoh

Five steps to the center we stand
Let's throw a coin up and see how it lands
The way we were, the way we weren't
Who's to say?
How much of you and me do you still see?
How much of you and me do you still see?
(Do you see?) How much do you see?

Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
it's safe to say you've changed
(away, away, away)
Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
you're only hip
as in hipocrit, critically unacclaimed
Hip as in hipocrit, your changing your name
and your address
Right it down baby don't forget
Did you lose all your friends because of me?

Change your name and your address
It was all a consequence
Did you lose all your friends because of me?

What happened, why did we, where will we go?

Remember the good old days? (Do you remember?)
Remember the good old days? (Do you remember?)
What happened, why did we, where will we go?
Remember the good old days? (Do you remember?)
Remember the good old days? (Do you remember?)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
it's safe to say you've changed
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Remember the good old days
before I was replaced by a fake
I'm not the only on that thinks
you've changed

    General Commentthe only song I've heard from the new CD and it's making me want to go buy the CD. awesome song, not sure what it's about bu it sounds to me that it can be about problems within the band or a relationship. like I said, I don't know.

    General Commentto me it kind of sounds like seeing your ex, they found someone new, they've just changed completely, and you miss the old them.

    General Commentwhat does this song mean to me?
    i'm gonna drop names just for you to know.

    samara me and kels were all friends. the best of friends might i add.
    samara and i liked a boy named dimitry. we agreed that he was off limits because honestly, it's chicks before dicks. the next day he asked her out and she said yes. then she met kim. kims a fifteen year old alcoholic. : ] that's fabulous right? samara stats drinking and forgets who her real friends are. starts trash talking us for no apparent reason, samara even is sneeking around [like a snake] to go get drunk, and she even gets arrested. real nice babe. and kim, is really a fake because she goes around talking about samara all the time calling her fat and a drunk, when in reality samara is not fat and wasn't always drunk like kim was.

    AND not to mention, samara ditched kelsey on her birthday. :[

    so this song makes perfect fucking sense to me. even the title. "the fake the snake and the birthday cake" fake=kim snake=samara and birthday cake=kelsey. and i guess i'm just steve singing it.

    hey kelsey, remember the good old days before we were replaced by fakes. we're not the only ones who think its safe to say she's changed. cause nini and dj [other friends] see it too.

    General Commentwow fifteen year olds need to go back to boy bands... this shit is too deep for y'all. suckas need go bump some "bye, bye. bye." but about the song let me say from experience that its funny as hell when ur ex girl tries to replace you with a fake, a poseur who is like " the second best thing" compared to to the one they had before.but you tend to miss the old days before it came to that.

    General CommentI think we've all got the meaning of the song. Not neccessarily about an ex, just about someone who's changed. Some of the lyrics up there are wrong, I think, too...

    General Commentyeahhh. the meaning's pretty obvious.

    he's realized that his ex has completely changed and is dating a next-best-thing fake. he's just sick of her and who she is now. doesn't she remember the good old days? and now he's reminiscing and wondering if she's forgotten, and where she'll end up in the future, as this new person.

    i can definitely relate to this song...
    in friends and boyfriends.

    but people do change.

    "I'm not the only one who thinks you've changed."

    General CommentYour lyrics are wrong.
    These are what you need to change to.

    "Stop looking at the mess that we've made,
    and what the hell, let's have another night of making mistakes."

    "Hoping that we wouldn't cross paths like usually..."

    "Write it down, baby, don't forget..."

    Last line, "I'm not the only one that thinks you've changed."

    Aside from that, the song is pretty self-explanatory. And it's great song.
