'Cause Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me
Was just a lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

Let's write a song that we can dance to
'Cause they all wanna listen
Just to know how it sounds when
I do that thing you know that I do
When I find inspiration
Well, this is me breaking down when...

'Cause Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me
Was just a lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

And let's write a song that we can sing to
And you can lead the choir
And put the hook where it hurts the most
And you threw a spark that lit the candle
That set us all on fire
And sent a flame down the East Coast

'Cause Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me
Was just a lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

And I should have been your everything
And now at the end of my eternity
And I will sleep to have the darkest dreams
As this just won't seem right to me
I close my eyes and beg for peace

'Cause Jersey just got colder and...
'Cause Jersey just got colder and...
And Jersey just got colder and...

And Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me
Was just a lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

    He's talking about writing a song because that’s what he does- he is a musician.
    When he finds inspiration, he writes songs to express himself.

    "And let's write a song that we can sing to
    And you can lead the choir
    And put the hook where it hurts the most
    And you threw a spark that lit the candle
    That set us all on fire
    And sent a flame down the East Coast"

    He found something out in jersey and the flame or ‘fire’ in him went out, making jersey colder. He hoping that everything that she told him wasn’t a lie. and that is what is keeping him going for just a little longer.

    "And I should have been your everything
    And now at the end of my eternity
    And I will sleep to have the darkest dreams
    As this just won't seem right to me
    I close my eyes and beg for peace"

    He should be hers, but now that he isn’t, he doesn’t want to go on anymore. He dreams of her and now everything he does- writing, singing- doesn’t seem like it used to because she was his inspiration and motivation.

    that's what i got from it. it might be completely wrong, but whatever.
    they were so good live. i saw them at warped and love them now! haha

    General Commenti love the part that goes "And you threw a spark that lit the candle
    that set us all on fire
    and sent a FLAAMMEEEE down the EEEAAASSTT coast"

    General CommentChill out man. I didn't and won't listen to the leak. I heard the song on AOL radio, and wanted to find out the lyrics for myself. And I figured I might as well post em up somewhere.

    General CommentHe's right.
    The song is called Jersey.
    Ironic seeing as how their from Florida.

    I just went and looked at the official track listings from fearlessrecords.com and they only have 2 of the original songs.
    "Jamie All Over"
    and of course
    "When I Get Home, Your So Dead"

    Kinda depressing cause I was hoping either One Man or Last Something would make it.

    General Commenti was reading stuff on the web and blogs and this and back cat supposedly have hidden meanings

    "I'll do that thing you know that I do
    Where I find inspiration"

    i think this part reffers to drug use..i could be wrong

    General Commentyou are wrong...the lead singer, derek doesn't even drink. and none of the boys do drugs..so i highly doubt they'd be writing about that.

    General CommentJason is still on the CD, which made me really happy.
    This song is great, I love the whole CD, except Black Cat, I just don't really like that song very much.
    Great fucking band.
