It's looking like
I'm gonna stay and see what this feels like.
I'm acting like
there's no excuse for my real cool tonight.
I might be taking a stab at avenged.
I might be staring at the face of revenge.
I might be looking for your attention.

Yeah, that's just what it is so...

Hold on, 'cause it's been too long.
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated.
Hold on, 'cause it's been too long.
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated.

So you wanna make me love her?
Some kind of principle.
So you wanna say to me
that I've been handling
this all the completely wrong way.
Staring at some important face,
Staring at some important face.

Don't try and say you know what...

Hold on, 'cause it's been too long.
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated.
Hold on, 'cause it's been too long.
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated.

Okay, now you see who I really--
Okay, now you see who I really am.
Okay, now you see who I really--
Okay, now you see who I really--
Okay, now you see who I really--
Okay, now you see who I really am!

Hold on, 'cause it's been too long
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated.
Hold on, 'cause it's been too long.
Hold on, 'cause freaking out is really overrated!

    General CommentIs there a way you can download JUST THIS SONG from iTunes without having to download the entire thing? Since I bought the album, I don't mind throwing in 99 cents to download this iTunes bonus track...

    General CommentOkay, so I don't have an awesome version of the song, but from what there is of live versions on YouTube, I think there are a few corrections to make:

    First of all, instead of
    "I'm acting like",
    it sounds like it might be
    "I'm not gonna lie".
    I do think that makes more sense, too.

    Secondly, the first line of the second verse,
    "So you wanna make me love her?",
    should be
    "So you wanna make me an offer?".

    And finally, the last two lines in that verse,
    "Staring at some important face",
    should be
    "Staring at some important place".

    That's just what I heard. Maybe someone who has the recording of the song could verify?

    But yeah, this song is pretty awesome, especially for not being on the album. Of course, why wouldn't it be? ;]

    Peace.

    General CommentIs it just me or does the bridge sound like it's pretty clearly saying "Oh, GOD, now you see who I really am"? That's what I always hear when I listen to it..
