"Calm Before the Storm (Evening Out With Your Girlfriend version)" as written by and Wentz/stump/trohman/hurley....
Sat outside my front window
This story's going somewhere
He's well hung and I am hanging on
There's a song on the radio that says
"Let's get this party started"
So let's get this party started

What you do on your own time's just fine
My imaginations much worse
I just never want to know
And what meant the world had folded
Like legs and fingers holding on to
What escapes me what he has:
A better kiss that never lasts

You said between your smiles and regrets
"Don't say it's over"
Dead and gone
Dead and gone yeah

The calm before the storm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
A reception less than warm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight

This is me standing in the arch of the door
Hating that look that's on your face
That says there's another fool like me
There's one born every minute
There's one born every minute

What you do on your own time's just fine
My imaginations much worse
I just never want to know (never want to know)
What meant the world imploded
Inflated then demoted all my
Oxygen to product gas
And suffocated my last chance

You said between your smiles and regrets
"Don't say it's over"
Dead and gone
Dead and gone yeah

Calm before the storm (set it of, set it off)
Calm before the storm (set it off, set it off)

The calm before the storm, set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight
A reception less than warm set it off
And the sun burnt out tonight

Sun burnt out tonight
The sun burnt out tonight

    General Commentok so this song starts out the same but has a different ending... any ways i like patrick singing this song alot! how ever i really like this version too. pete does a very good job of singing it. its kinda cool to here the part where both pete and patrick sing in both this version and the take this to your grave version are almost like the same sounding.

    General Commentidk im confussed now i know patrick sings the one on TTTYG but for AEOWYGF i think it might be both? im not so sure though cause my comp wont let me listen to the EOWYG one and i didnt have enough money on me to buy it from borders but from the 30 sec intro it sounded alot more like pete? idk though i could be wrong

    General CommentThis song is typical old fall out boy. It makes me smile because I almost forgot this stuff still exists. And it's pure. No expectatopm-type-pure.

    It's about a failed relationship, her cheating, and the girl wanting him back. That's all. Read the lyrics.
