i love love. i love being in love.
i don't care what it does to me.
take these tattered boxes that used to hold your clothes.
break them down. build them back up with your bones.
now all you do is construct a mess. you're good to me when only flesh. you're memory with nothing to show.
we would take trips. we swore we'd never take pictures. pictures only prove you can't convince.
now i wish those photographs could convince you that what we had would only turn out a negative.
well well well
if fingertips are relationships then i could barely carry your weight.
if fingers are mistakes. don't lose this one to point the blame.
no, just sing. sing, "i love love. i love being in love. i don't care what it does to me."
these pills are fine to pass the time 'til i find my new drug and
we'll take our chances. we'll last a month. we'll never speak again.
how i love being in love.

and don't pick up that line here. just to have a good time you don't need him, you need to be seen. so someone else can teach you wrong.
so you, my love, can sing this song:
"i love love. i love being in love. i don't care what it does to me."
these pills are fine to pass the time 'til i find my new drug and
we'll take advantage. i'll claim that's what i want, to be the new statistic.
how i love how
i love how
i love being in love.

take these tattered boxes that used to hold your clothes.
break them down. build them back up with your bones.
now all you do is construct a mess.
you're dead to me if love is death.
you're memory with nothing to show.
well well well
your fingertips are relationships. then well maybe i could use a break.
she smiles and she points at me.
she says, "baby, i love how you sing. so just sing."
sing, "i love love. i love being in love. i don't care what it does to me. i love love. i love being in love. i don't care what it does to me."
these pills are fine to pass the time 'til i find my new drug and
we'll take our chances. we'll rise above.
we'll last until the end.
how i love how
i love how
i love being in love.

    General CommentWhile I agree with everyone else, I think that the song ends on a more optimistic note.

    "we'll rise above.
    we'll last until the end."

    I think that is shows how even though a lot of relationships will end in failure, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't just go with it, because it may just end up being right.

    these pills are fine to pass the time 'til i find my new drug and
    we'll take our changes. we'll rise above.
    we'll last until the end.

    General Commentnow i wish those photographs could convince you that what we had
    Would only turn out a negative
    well well well
    IF fingertips are relationships then i could barely carry your weight.
    IF fingers are mistakes, don't lose this one to point the blame.


    also, at the the end, it says
    "we'll last until the end" not "we'll last a month"

    General Commentyou're memory with nothing to show

    It's all those almost-relationships, the "things" and flings so common everywhere.
