When he said
"I hope you're sleeping better knowing that I never sleep at all" did you reply
with that smile
I know this can't
be what you had in mind
I guess you'll try it all again next fall
you'll feel better on the day that he dies

so when you're pulling on your trendy clothes
and humming every stupid note to this song
that's on your mixtape that we're singing oh so loud
yeah we're singin' now

When she said
"you gotta make your plans, to start making plans alone" maybe we will and maybe we won't
and you know you're gonna paint the town red
with all of your blood she stole
on the night of the murder when she left you alone

so when she's pulling on her trendy clothes
and humming every stupid note to this song
that's on your mixtape that we're singing oh so loud
yeah we're singin' now

and here's to all the boys you'll kiss
and all the scars left on their lips
and here's to all the boys you'll date
the one's we'll make sure that we hate

and here's to all the boys you'll kiss
and all the scars left on their lips
and here's to all the boys you'll date
the one's we'll make sure that we hate

    General Commentthis song's lyrics had always confused me, but i think i kind of figured it out.


    "When he said
    "I hope you're sleeping better knowing that I never sleep at all" did you reply
    with that smile
    I know this can't
    be what you had in mind
    I guess you'll try it all again next fall
    you'll feel better on the day that he dies"
    i think that's about a girl that likes to mess with guys' minds and finds pleasure in it.
    here, jamison is talking to the girl.

    "so when you're pulling on your trendy clothes
    and humming every stupid note to this song
    that's on your mixtape that we're singing oh so loud
    yeah we're singin' now"

    i always thought that it was the instead of this song, because it sounds like it's a song that the guy wrote for her and she still likes even though the relationship is over. jamison is still talking to the girl.

    "When she said
    "you gotta make your plans, to start making plans alone" maybe we will and maybe we won't
    and you know you're gonna paint the town red
    with all of your blood she stole
    on the night of the murder when she left you alone"

    here, jamison is talking to the guy. it sounds like the girl either killed him or the guy committed suicide because of the girl.

    "so when she's pulling on her trendy clothes
    and humming every stupid note to this song
    that's on your mixtape that we're singing oh so loud
    yeah we're singin' now"

    and here, jamison is still talking to the guy. i think it's 'on your mixtape' this time because it's the mixtape the guy made for the girl.

    "and here's to all the boys you'll kiss
    and all the scars left on their lips
    and here's to all the boys you'll date
    the one's we'll make sure that we hate

    and here's to all the boys you'll kiss
    and all the scars left on their lips
    and here's to all the boys you'll date
    the one's we'll make sure that we hate"

    jamison is talking about the girl here. and i think the reason that it's 'we' instead of 'i' is because he is not only talking about him, but the girl's ex as well.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song i think of a guy whos been messed with by a high school senior ( i know thats weird but he makes reference to next fall). she seems to be one of those girls who is a stretch to get and she dresses nice and is slightly easy so when shes breaking up wtih him shes really mean about it so at the end of the song he starts cursing her

    General CommentNormally I'd say something like "Why doesn't this have more comments?!?"

    But it's kinda cool how not that many people know about it because it makes the song a little more special ya know?

    Besides, the new kids wouldn't know what to do with a song like this
