This is where goodbye leaves your lips.
This is where the end leaves you breathless.
Cold and shaking on that empty tile floor.
Where tables and chairs become your best friends.

You’ve done your best not to let it get you down.
But the truth is you're well aware.

If we're gonna go down
We might as well do it in style.
Give 'em hell kid,
Give 'em hell.

Time is timeless unlike you and i.
So don't bother asking,
It won't listen.

So give yourself a pat on the back.
You’ve at least made it this far, kid.
Sometimes it's hard to live when you know it ends it death.
But at least sometimes
You’ll have blue skies.
At least sometimes you'll have twilight.
And of course
You’ll always have me.

This isn't a lullaby.
This isn't a tragedy.
It’s just a boy singing a love song.

It’s not for tomorrow.
Or for yesterday.
It’s for now,
'cause now is beautiful.

This isn't a lullaby.
This isn't a tragedy.
It’s just a boy singing a love song.

It’s not for tomorrow.
Or for yesterday.
It’s for now,
'cause now is so fucking beautiful.

We’re so goddamn beautiful,
You and I.
We’re so goddamn beautiful.

    General Commenti would have to agree with you on this one. i didn't cry, but i felt like i was about to. i am not the type to use cuss words. but there is something about this song that makes it ok. they aren't just there for no point. i makes me want someone to say that "we're so goddam beautiful". i love this song so much.

    General CommentI'm guessing, because of the lines "It's just a boy singing a love song" and "This is where goodbye leaves your lips" along with the beautiful stuff, I'm guessing this song is about a love that's ended and the guy is having a hard time dealing with it and is contemplating suicide?

    I'd rather have it about how living ends in death, and how quote "If you're gonna go down then give them hell kid" and about how life is beautiful short as it is and all that stuff, but I guess that's not what Chad had in mind... *sigh*

    General CommentNo wait, I'm wrong. It is about life and how it may end in death, but even though it's short, it's still beautiful and you should live it to the fullest. It's not a tragedy or anything like that. It's just him telling us that even though life ends eventually, it's still worth living every second that we have.


    This isn't a lullaby.
    This isn't a tragedy.
    It’s just a boy singing a love song.
