    General CommentI think the female says "well you keep looking up at her door"

    then the male says "better get you a pair of glasses for those eyes you got in the back of your head"

    at the very end of the song and it's very quiet you can hear a different male voice say "how's it working out for ya kid?" and then the response "what?" and then the male says "learnin how to drive"

    that last little bit is the best part of the song in my opinion, but you have to listen closely for it.

    General CommentAt one point I hear, "you're a rotten spoiled selfish quitter."

    and later I hear, "did you and _____ have a falling out today?"

    "no, why would you say that?"

    then about 10 seconds later, can make out, "things are gonna get better, don't you worry."
