"Trip Me Up" as written by and Jeff/winters Heiskell....
I could kick myself for leaving you
But then I guess I already have at least a thousand times
Ah, this endless parade of mimes
Lonely hearts and fools who want to put themselves off
On anyone as a piece of sun
A ray of light in every seedy starless night
I could kill myself for loving you
But then everyone knows I will if I go out tonight
Ah, the hateful eyes of hindsight
Haunting how-it-will-be's
I'm gonna wrap myself around some young thing like a piece of string
A ball of twine
Like sunshine
I fell for you
And I'm still falling
when I hit the bottom, I will bounce back up
You trip me up
I could kick myself for leaving you
But then I guess I already have at least a thousand times
I fell for you
And I'm still falling
When I hit the bottom, will I bounce back up
You trip me up
I fell for you, and I'm still falling

    General Commentmad at yourself for leaving someone. but there's nothing you can say or really do. & basically, regret sucks. he wonders if he'll be able to recover from this, because he fall so hard for her. he just doesn't know how he can ever let go.

    General CommentYes I agree with you kickstart. I'm glad someone else commented! I also think that to fill his lonliness and regret he is going to find someone to be with just so he won't have to be alone, but he knows it will be cheap and meaningless. The parts that make me think that are:

    Lonely hearts and fools who wanna put themselves off on anyone as a piece of sun, a ray of light in every seedy starless night

    'm gonna wrap myself around some young thing like a piece of string, a ball of twine

    My favorite part is " Ah, the hateful eyes of hindsight
    Haunting how-it-will-be's"

    hindsight is always 20/20.

    I find this one to have the most depressing sound of all their songs.
