"G.I.N.A.S.F.S." as written by Peter Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman and Andrew Hurley....
I've loved everything about you that hurts, so
Let me see your moves,
Let me see your moves
Lips pressed this close to mine,
True Blue

But the prince of any failing empire knows that
Everybody wants, everybody wants
To drive on through the night
If it's a drive back home

Things aren't the same anymore
Some nights, they get so bad
You almost pick up the phone

Trade baby blues for wide eyed browns
I sleep with your old shirts
And walk through this house in your shoes,
You know it's strange
It's a strange way of saying,
I'm supposed to love you
I'm supposed to love you

I've already given up on myself twice
Third time is the charm, third time is the charm
Threw caution to the wind
But I've got a lousy arm

And I've traced your shadows on the wall
Now I kiss them whenever I'm down
Whenever I'm down
Figured on not figuring myself out

Things aren't the same anymore
Some nights, they get so bad
I almost pick up the phone

Trade baby blues for wide eyed browns
I sleep with your old shirts
And walk through this house in your shoes,
You know it's strange
It's a strange way of saying
That I know I'm supposed to love you
I'm supposed to love you

Born under a bad sign, but you saved my life
That night on the roof of your hotel
"Cross my heart and hope to die
Splintered from the headboard in my eye"
Photo-proofed kisses I remembered so well

Trade baby blues for wide eyed browns
I sleep with your old shirts
And walk through this house in your shoes,
You know it's strange
It's a strange way of saying
That I know I'm supposed to love you
I'm supposed to love you

Now press repeat

    General Commentit means "gay is not a synonym for stupid"

    fall out boy's been trying to demonstrate tolerance for homosexuality
    rumors have been made that Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump are bisexual
    it's a love song
    two and two together = this is a love song about another guy

    General CommentThis song is from the perspective of a gay guy who broke up with his boyfriend. It's not that hard to understand fall out boy lyrics, it's just easy to get caught up in finding secret meanings (which, don't get me wrong, there always are). But I do think it's biased to always assume a song is about a heterosexual breakup. "Trade baby blues for wide-eyed browns": the old partner had blue eyes, the new one has brown. "I sleep in your old shirts" (literally) "and walk through this house in your shoes": he tries to look at the old relationship as his old partner saw it. "It's a strange way of saying that I know I'm supposed to love you": he knows he's in love with his old partner because they're so great together, but they have so damn many problems they decided to call it quits. I think John Mayer's "Comfortable" parallels with this song.

    My InterpretationMy favorite line in the whole song is:
    "And walk through this house in your shoes,"

    To me its not somebody literally walking in his ex's shoes (That would be slightly creepy) but instead walking throughout his house looking at things from her point of view.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is that his wife/girlfriend died from childbirth.
    "Lips pressed close to mine, true blue"
    Her lips are blue, because she's dead.
    "Trade baby blues for wide eyed browns"
    He lost his wife (baby blues) but got a child (wide eyed browns).
    "I'm supposed to love you"
    He's supposed to love the child, but can't fully, because he feels that the child is responsible for his wife's death.
    "I almost pick up the phone"
    Could be that he wants to call her, but then realizes that he can't.
    I realize that there's a lot of this that doesn't quite support my conclusion, but this is what I think of every time I listen to it.
