"Up Against The Wall" as written by Sam Hollander, David Katz and Martin Johnson....
It's over, look out below
I'm wasted, I still taste it
Yeah it's so hard to let go
So breathe in now, and breathe it out

The forecast, A car crash
It's looking like another

Breakdown, rebound
This could be my last goodbye
You cross your heart, I hope to die

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines,
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all

No rewinds, no second times
And I won't break, I won't waste
Everything you left behind
So don't follow, just let it go
The weather's been better
Don't let it be another

Breakdown, rebound
This could be my last goodbye
You cross your heart, I hope to die

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines,
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all

All the nights spent sitting at home
When you were out there on your own
All the nights waited by the phone
When you were going in alone
And all your different faces
And all your different ways
Are making everything a mess
And all I'm saying is that
I have different places and
All the complications led to this

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines,
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines,
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all

    General Commentgreat song, but two tenative corrections.

    "Don't let it be another"
    instead of "So let it be another"

    and "All your different faces and all the complications led to this" instead of "I have different places and all the complications end today"

    not sure but thats what i think haha.

    i think this song is also about losing someone and regretting ever even taking the chance.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's 'threw' not 'feel'

    General CommentAnd I think that it is:

    All the nights spent sitting at home
    When you were out there on your own
    All the nights waited by the phone
    When you were going in alone
    And all your different faces
    And all your different ways
    Are making everything a mess
    And all I'm saying is that
    I have different places and
    All the complications led to this

    General CommentHaha thanks for the edits guys.
    I tend to do these at like one in the morning, so that's probably why it was all messed up.

    And I agree that it's about losing someone and regretting ever trying to have a relationship with them in the first place.

    General Commentyep i agree with the meaning - aw this song is actually really sad lol. it sounds like he's still hung up over his ex in the chorus part.

    nonetheless, this song is amazing and i love the album.

    General Commenti think this is song is about a guy who liked a girl and she didn't like him/was planning to dump him & the guy kind of saw what was coming, but after it happened he was really hurt.

    General CommentAlfred Lord Tennyson first said, in his poem In Memorium, "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Just wanted to piont that out. I think this is one of my favorite songs by BLG.
