"Coffee Shop Soundtrack" as written by Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
Should I write myself out of the history books,
And mark a place in time for every chance you took,
Don't get me wrong I know you've got your life in place
I've yet to take the hint,
Some day
I'm sure I'll get the picture,
And stop waiting up

When it all comes down,
To a sunrise on the east side,
Will you be there to carry home,
The remains of my wasted youth,
This wasted time on you
Has left me shaking in waiting,
Shaking in waiting for something more.

Tonight is alive with the promise of a street-fight,
And there's money on the table,
That says your cheap-shots won't be able,
To break bones.
I've yet to break a sweat
I'll make your past regret its future.
Here's to you.

When it all comes down,
To a sunrise on the east side,
Will you be there to carry home,
The remains of my wasted youth,
This wasted time on you
Has left me shaking in waiting,
For something more.

Make all of my decisions for me,
I've never taken the fall for deceit,
I'll keep a secret if you keep me guessing,
The taste of your lips says we shouldn't have met like
The taste of your lips says we shouldn't have met like

I can keep a secret if you can keep me guessing,
The flavor of your lips is enough to keep me pressing,
For more than just a moment of truth between the lies told,
To pull ourselves away from the lives we leave back home
I can keep a secret if you can keep me guessing,
The flavor of your lips is enough to keep me here

When it all comes down,
To a sunrise on the east side,
Will you be there to carry me home,
The remains of my wasted youth,
This wasted time on you
Has left me shaking in waiting,
For something more.

    General CommentJust me, or does this song remind you all of Fall Out Boy?
    The guy almost sounds like him, and the lyrics are remarkably close to something FOB would write.
    I agree with NataliesADDICTION, I think that's exactly what the song is about.

    General Commentsorry to all those who dont like fall ou tboy. but the first line of this song "should i write myself out of the history books" sounds remarkably like something fall out boy would sing----
    as for the rest of the song while the vocals sound somewhat like FOB's ATL's lyrics are much better.

    i love the

    General Commenti don't know who said they sound like FOB, but they definitely don't. Does the lead singer sound whiney and girly to you? Besides, you can at least understand what the lead singer of ATL is saying.

    I will admit, a select few of their guitar riffs sound similar to FOB, but it's safe to say FOB doesn't even compare to ATL.

    I do agree with theycallmetaryn, i dont know if i can put up with all those "teenie boppers" who decide to randomly scream for no freakin' reason... especially those who can't hear a decent pitch to scream to. I do want ATL to be heard and recognized, but i don't want them to be overrated like Panic! and FOB. Sorry about my rambling, i was at a concert the other day and i just couldn't stand some people.
