I'm missing your bed
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak,
And this bottle of beast
Is taking me home
I'm cuddling close
To blankets and sheets
But you're not alone, and you're not discreet
Make sure I know who's taking you home.

I'm reading your note over again
And there's not a word that I comprehend,
Except when you signed it
I will love you always and forever

I'm missing your laugh
How did it break?
And when did your eyes begin to look fake?
I hope you're as happy as you're pretending.

I'm cuddling close
To blankets and sheets
and I am alone
In my defeat I wish I knew you were safely at home

I'm missing your bed
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak,
And this bottle of beast is taking me home.

We saw the western coast
I saw the hospital
Nursed the shoreline like a wound
Reports of lover's tryst
Were neither clear nor descript
We kept it safe and slow
The quiet things that no one ever knows

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Gave up my body and bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

Well as for now I'm gonna hear the saddest songs
And sit alone and wonder
How you're making out
but as for me, I wish that I was anywhere, with anyone
Making out.

I'm missing your laugh
How did it break?
And when did your eyes begin to look fake?
I hope you're as happy as you're pretending.

I'm missing your bed
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak,
And this bottle of beast is taking me home.


and iiii....

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Gave up my body and bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Gave up my body and bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

(Your hair, it's everywhere.
Screaming infidelities
And taking its wear.)

So keep the blood in your head
And keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Gave up my body and bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

    General CommentThis interpretation is based mostly on the song but partly on the video. This Interpretation will cover the overall song not the two different songs.

    Ok so the two were going out and something happened and they went to the hospital then she dies unexpectedly.. The vid shows that her life is slowly ending with the hospital lines, then it flat lines and that shows her death. Then the video goes of the story line/meaning that I felt.

    Like many posted before me every line is so emotional. A great song and there are two different meanings.

    General CommentThis is just an amazing song. It's a remix between dahsboard and brand new, simply amazing. I find that this song brings so much emotion, all kinds of emotions to it. The lyrics are from 2 different song, but combine well, from my point of view this song is about love...someone getting hurt in love, getting a broken heart, and the person that hurt them is cheating on them and left them.

    "Your hair, it's everywhere.
    Screaming infidelities
    And taking its wear."

    Amazing part, this is the part of the song that makes me feel so much emotion. Even in the original version with only Dashboard, brings me emotion. Just an amazing song.

    General CommentI'm wondering what the woman and the man say in the middle of the song.

    It sounds like the woman is saying "do you leave your razor blades lying down" not sure what the guy says...

    the second part he says "hasnt this gone too far" and she says "it certainly has"

    General CommentOk the random talking in the background says:
    Winnie (the girl voice) "Ken, do you leave your razor blades lying around?"
    Ken (the dudes voice) "Don't be a philistine Winnie."

    thats the first bit. the second bit says:
    Ken: "Look, darling, hasn't this gone a little too far?"
    Winnie "It certainly has."

    It's from a play-type thing about love/romance/divorce.
    So yeah...Great song. Brand New + Dashboard Confessional = amazing ^.^

    General Commenti think this is the best mix that the legion of doom has to offer, it fits perfectly together. some of the other stuff is too chopped and doesn't fit right and one song takes over the other one.
    + dc & brand new are absolutely amazing bands :]
