"My Blue Heaven" as written by and Adam Burbank/mascherino Lazzara....
Two sides twist and then collide
You're coming off the guard, I'm coming through (am I coming through)
A torturous condition to a spin cycled submission
You know sometimes it just feels better to give in
(Sometimes it just feels better to give in)

And it's all too familiar and it happens all the time
All the cards begin to stack up
Twisting heartache into fine little pieces that avoid an awful crime
But it's you I can't deny

Though he rises from the sheets above the patient boy and a jealous man
(Am I coming)
But double standard off suspicion is remedied, oh, my blue heaven
Sometimes it just feels better to give in
(Sometimes it just feels better to give in)

And it's all too familiar and it happens all the time
All the cards begin to stack up
Twisting heartache into fine little pieces that avoid an awful crime
But it's you I can't deny

We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in my head starts to sing
You're safe, child, you are safe
(You're safe, child, you are safe)
You're safe, child, you are safe

We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in my head starts to sing,
You're safe, child, you are safe
You're safe, child, you are

Safe (safe) (safe) you are safe
We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in my head starts to sing
You're safe, child, you are safe
(Am I, coming through)

Is this all too familiar, does it happen all the time?
I'm just asking you to hear me
Could you please just once just hear me?
More than anything, you wanted to be right
So it's you, you, it's you I can't deny
(You I can't deny)
It's you I can't deny

    General CommentI'll edit this song if needed once the cd comes next week lol.

    I think this song is my favorite off Louder Now -- it's a little cliche, but i'm a sucker for romantic songs like this lol. Man.. the lyrics are so beautiful.

    The chorus is directly from Fred's old band Breaking Pangea's "Wedding Dress" if you didn't know lol.

    The general meaning is pretty straight forward; it's a love story! =) my favorite lol:

    Both the lives of a guy and girl collide with each other, and they get involved in each other's lives in some way or another. The guy ends up being like tortured with heartache over this girl and becomes head over heels for her. All he wants is just BURST out telling her how he feels and just give in to all his feelings.

    But he knows this is all just another cliched situation, and all the bottled up feelings inside begin to "stack up" on top of another, making all the heartache he feels even heavier on his heart and worse. And even so -- he cannot deny her in any way, whether it's having feelings for her or physically being around her.

    In the 2nd verse, "he" refers to himself/the guy. The "patient boy and a jealous man" are all-in-one himself; he waits for her to return feelings for him every day, and in doing so he's jealous of all the other guys she gets involved with. and FINALLY, the guy gets over the fear of her not returning feelings for her and decides to tell her how he feels ("But double... is remedied, oh, my blue heaven!") and he feels enlightened lol.

    The "We swing and we sway" verse basically is the nervous guy telling himself that it'll be okay, that telling her how he feels will be alright.

    And finally the last verse is the guy trying to tell the girl to just LISTEN to him and give him a chance and return feelings for him; he wants this more than anything... And he finally tells her, "It's you I can't deny" -- with the story left unfinished.

    There. Done. lol The end! yeah i'm a bit perky considering it's 1:30 am..

    General Commenti totally agree with hplssrmantcxox
    clearly this song is about a boy who wants a girl but can't tell her. He experiences so much heartache but it is her he can't deny even though he wants to give up. i love the way adam sings this. there is so much emotion and it's as if you could feel exactly what he is. i can totally relate and i absolutely adore this song.

    General CommentI think it's about having a fling with a girl who's in a relationship, or otherwise disinterested. As with a lot of TBS songs, it takes a while to figure out what they mean as Adam and the current guitarist/co-vocalist (whomever they may be) often approach a narrative (in terms of the lyrics) through a variety of perspectives. To me, it's really about a guy who's madly in love and a girl who could care less.

    Song MeaningThis song is about having an affair. It’s about two people with history that can’t and shouldn’t be together, but they can’t help but give in to adultery because they can’t resist each other.

    “Two sides twist and then collide…Adulterous conditioned to a spin cycled submission,
    You know, sometimes it just feels better to give in.”

    It seems that these two people had been together in the past and now the girl is in a relationship with someone else.

    “Dull heat rises from the sheets.
    I’m both a patient boy,
    Well, and a jealous man.”

    The reference to sheets is post coital and he is expressing that he is willing to wait for her to leave her boyfriend, but he’s also jealous of her being with him, too.

    I know from experience that love triangles are angst ridden, but sometimes, “It’s you I can’t deny.”

    My InterpretationListening to this song as an older more experienced person it feels more emotionally tied to the people you just can't seem to say no to or control yourself around. There's more than one person I've done everything in my power to distance myself from because I'd just get myself hurt again in ways far beyond a broken heart. I think overall it just feels dedicated to those people capable of wrecking you as a person.

    General CommentI can't tell if it's oF or off suspicion - i'll fix it if neccessary when the album's out in two days =D YAY.

    I think Louder Now is a lot more of a darker album than their others; I was comparing the two previous albums to this one -- TAYF & WYWTB were both much, I'm not sure the best term for this?, but like poppier? Not like POP POP but like definitely more upbeat and less dark in the majority of both albums.

    This album does, in fact, sound more like a rock album instead of being pigeon-holed into the whole "Emo/Hardcore/Screamo" genres or whatever.

    The boys have definitely grown these last two years. Personally, Louder Now is amazing, both lyrically and musically.

    General Commenti already have the cd because i pre-ordered it (and it came autographed :-D). anyway, according to the lyrics in the booklet, it's "double standardized suspicion"
