Well if you wanted honesty, That's all you had to say.
I never want to let you down or have you go, it's better off this way.
For all the dirty looks,
For photographs your boyfriend took,
Remember when you broke your foot from jumping out the second floor?

I'm not okay.
I'm not okay.
I'm not okay.
You wear me out.

What will it take to show you that it's not the life it seems?
(I'm not okay)
I told you time and time again you sing the words but still don't know what it means
To be a joke and look
Another line without a hook
I held you close as we both shook for the last time
Take a good hard look!

I'm not okay.
I'm not okay.
I'm not okay.
You wear me out.

Forget about the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took
You say you read me like a book, but the pages all are torn and frayed

I'm okay.
I'm okay!
I'm okay, now
(I'm okay, now)

But you really need to listen to me
Because I'm telling you the truth
I mean this, I'm okay!
(Trust me.)

I'm not okay
I'm not okay
Well, I'm not okay
I'm not o-fucking-kay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
(Okay)

    General Comment:I think it's a very good cover until it gets to the "trust me part" which I think was a lot better when MCR did it.

    General Comment:It's really not necessary to post a song by another artist on a different artists page, even if they covered the song. As you can see from the amount of comments on this page, everyone goes to MCR's page for this song. It's an idiotic move on your part if you ask me. Nice job :)

    General Comment:But I just posted the song a week ago, you can't really expect comments that fast. And if you actually looked... you would realize that there are various covers TBS did on the lyric page :]

    General Comment:I love both of these bands to death..

    But this shouldn't really be on here. It's not even a cover, because the members of MCR were playing along with TBS. Yeah, Adam was singing, but that's only because Gerard got sick or something.

    Ah. Oh well. I like it.
