Can you handle it,
the sugar filled veins,
the decreasing sunlight and chilled autumn rains?
Your hair has grown long,
and you've messed up.
I hope you're okay.

Can you believe it?
We've come this far,
Striped petti coats and run down cars.
We say goodbye,
run through the woods,
the neighbors are at it again.

You're a roller rink
and I'm spinning in circles around you
like spring night skies that stay blue.
This warmth, it misses you.

There's so many constants.
I wish you were constant, too.

On the way home,
we talked about how I hadn't changed
and how I'd said I would come back one day to stay.
Well I know, I know, I should be killed
but this silence, it's already killing me.

So when you said you'd follow me wherever I'd go,
well that scared the hell out of me.
I thought you should know
because why, oh, why would someone follow around a bag of bones?

    General CommentI'd blame the power rangers. Mainly tommy aka the green ranger. He was totally dead to me after he switched to the white ranger.

    General CommentThis song really speaks to me, It relates to me in several different ways. I feel like an asshole but i had no choice.


    Can you handle it?
    The sugar filled veins
    Decreasing sunlight and chilled out of rains
    Your hair grown long
    You've messed up
    I hope you're okay
    (Further we got in, more lustful we got, and the everything is in a mess)(I lusted after her further we got in the relationship)

    Can you believe it?
    We've come this far
    Your striped coats and run down cars
    Say goodbye and we run to the woods
    The neighbors are at it again
    (Can you believe we've been together this long.but we still fight, and we run away from our feelings.)
    ( I run away everytime me and her fight)

    We only talked about how I hadn't changed
    Said I'd come back one day
    And I'd stay
    I know, I know I should be killed
    The silence is already killing me
    (This is like a typical relationship you know when the girl and the guy, feel this connection so powerful that they would never leave, but he eventually leaves anyways)(I did the same thing, me and my g/f kept on talking how i would never mature, so i told her break up with me, but i kept on saying i would never leave, but she said that its how i felt then, and now. but shes the one who felt like she would never leave me, but i end up leaving now its silent)

    You're a roller rink
    I'm spinning in circles around you
    Like spring night skies that stay blue
    This warmth that misses you
    (He is messing with her head, but he has a little feeling for her still)(i meesed with her head and i kind still loved her)

    So many constants
    I wish you were constant too
    So many constants
    (im going to say constants is happiness, and there is so much happiness and he wishes she was happy too)(now im happy by myself and wish she was happy too,)

    General Commentactually, these lyrics are a bit wrong. the correct lyrics, which were taken directly from umbrellas myspace are:

    can you handle it? the sugar filled veins
    the decreasing sunlight and chilled autumn rains
    your hair has grown long, and you've messed up
    i hope you're okay

    can you believe it? we've come this far
    striped petti coats and run down cars
    we say goodbye, run through the woods, the neighbors are at it again

    you're a roller rink and i'm spinning in circles around you
    like spring night skies that stay blue.
    this warmth it misses you

    there's so many constants i wish you were constant too

    on the way home we talked about how i hadn't changed
    and how i'd said i would come back one day to stay
    well i know i know i should be killed
    but this silence it's already killing me

    so when you said you'd follow me wherever i'd go
    well that scared the hell out of me i thought you should know
    cause why oh why would someone follow around a bag of bones
