"The Sweets" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Karen Lee Orzolek....
Green shadow, water weight all over-all over me
The end will shelter me away
Can we meet again, meet and meet and meet again
Can ya fill the can if ya can't fill me?

Who ya following?
Who ya starting to move like?
Who ya falling for, who ya falling for?
Whose lies?
Who ya following, who ya falling for?
This sound's on your side

Secret blue purple pink and green right over it
Hold on 'cuz the coldest hasn't fought yet
Well if we meet again, meet and meet and meet again
Can ya catch the can if you can't will it?

How will you want something to hit with
Spinning again and again and again and again
What's your crime
What's your crime
Well how will you want
How will she fall
How will she spin
She's spinning again and again and again and again
What's your crime
What's your, what's your, what's your, what's your
What's your crime, crime, crime
What's your, what's your, what's your, what's your
What's your crime

    General Commentsounds like there was past troubles. this song. it carries such a feeling on desolation, like walking alone in the desert at dusk, or just being alone in a big city. i really love it.

    General CommentI think this song is very meaningful, but I can't quite put my finger on it to what it means. My best guess is that there's someone who feels isolated and lonely and is in despair; as well as guilt and trouble. I just love this slow-paced sad song, I can never get sick of listening to the YYYs; especially listening to this song... I love it.

    General Commenti think the song has feelings of lonliness and oppression. kind of like everyone is crowding her.
    it's also like she's thinking about someone she used to know. like they were friends or lovers or something, but the other person changed into something she didn't like.

    General Commentto me, this song is about jealousy, and maybe disappointment too. she might be jealous that a man's affections lie elsewhere, and disappointed that whilst she feels something for him, he doesn't feel the same for her. her jealousy could be the green shadow, he could be the coldest that hasn't thawed yet.. you get the idea. though of course this is all speculation!

    General Commentthis is such a pretty song musicaly but the lyrics sound like somebody is misleading her where it says
    " who you fallin' for
    who you fallin' for
    who's lies"
    or being decepted somehow.the comment about jelousy kinda makes sense to though. hmm... i dont know , but i love this song.

    General CommentThis song is about an unrequited love. She's in love with a man who once loved her but is now beginning to fall in love with someone else. I think she is trying to commit suicide by drowning herself in a pool one night, believing that ending her life will save her from her own pain and anger. I think the can represents their old love that used to be filled with sweets of many colors, kind of packed away in a fridge, and slowly it started emptying. When it finally emptied they started playing a symbolic game of kick the can with each other. Kind of a weird interpretation I know but it just makes sense to me

    General Commenti think this songs about a girl who's realizing her bf is cheating on her...the lyrics are pretty sad but they make me wanna dance! i think this is one of the best YYY songs, musically speaking... the guitar in the final part is so alive!
