is there a hole in your heart
or am i mistaken
i can see your capillary veins
you be the patient i'll be the surgeon
just like 1st grade on the playground all day

soon enough you'll hear the black top calling for you
after that there is not much else you can do

have you forgotten your place
I'm being sarcastic
that shit could kill a bus of kids

we have a good thing
she is a bad thing
why would she want to break us
who would want to break us

soon enough you'll hear the black top calling your name
every day your life will never be the same

i am a pirate you are a princess
we could sail the seven seas
bring back some presents
for all the people
everyone will love us even courtney will love us

    General Comment:This song is pretty.
    I think this song is about a young love, but its going through a rough patch, and he just wants to get away from everyone and for for him and his love to be able to get away from everyone, or just everyone to accept their love.

    Song Meaning: I love this song and i have listened to it back to back when i first found out about it, i absoulutely adore the part that says, Have you forgotton you place? im being sarcastic. i just love it.
    I heard courtney was his mom, so i think its about young lovers with a parent that doesn't agree to their love and he just wants them to be able to be together. So he made this fantasy for her until that day comes.

    General Comment:Like Wrightly said, This song is about young love. But the only problem is that they are going through some stuff. He wants to just be with his love and spend the rest of his life with her.

    Nothing can come betwine two lovers.

    General Comment:No..it's about how him and like madi can get together because in reality she didn't want to be with dan because he was two years younger...and courtney is his ex and she wanted him to be happy.

    General Comment:this song is GORGEOUS. i think its about young love like everyone has been saying, but not only that. it is about courtney trying to break them apart, but their love is strong enough to withstand it. so they go and "sail the seven seas" see the world together, away from everyone, and then when they get back, they show them they are perfect for eachother, by bringing "presents" everyone will then leave them alone, even courtney, the one that tried to break them

    General Comment:i think that it means that
    their like going out
    and nobody wants them to be together
    but they just love each other

    and want to be with eachother
    "just like 1st grade on the playground all day"
    i think that means just like when they were
    young they could be together
    and just be with eachother

    without anyone
    judging or saying anything to them



    p.s- i think courtney hates them
    =D

    General Comment:This song is about young love with many problems in the relationship. She has a drug addiction, and the Ex(courtney) Is attempting to break them up,While he just want's To be with his love and make all the problems go away. Almost every song I've heard from play radio play has something to do with drug addiction,and attempting to combat it.
