"This Is How We Do" as written by Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
Show us off to all your friends
We're the trophy boys
From here to with and when
We break and break your dreams up

Keeping us a secret
We're the back pocket believers
We're the locals who went poster
Call it treason while you can

I'm just a face for every picture
A smile for your scrapbooks
And a story to be told
(It tears and tears me up)

But I'm loving every second
So commemorate this hour
As the last I spend
Regretting what I have

Boys, raise your glasses
Girls, shake those, go, go, go
We're the party, you're the people
Let's make this night a classic

We play, you move
Come on, let me hear you
We're the party, you're the people
And this is how we, this is how we do

The curtain's rising
I'm forgetting where I've been
I watch the lights go up
On a star without his scream

Set it off and say it back
Direction's keeping me on track
But I'll admit I do it all for the attention

I'm just a face for every picture
A smile for your scrapbooks
And a story to be told
(It tears and tears me up)

But I'm loving every second
So commemorate this hour
As the last I spend
Regretting what I have

Boys, raise your glasses
Girls, shake those, go, go, go
We're the party, you're the people
Let's make this night a classic

We play, you move
Come on, let me hear you
We're the party, you're the people
And this is how we, this is how we do

    I think thats alex writing about how all these girls think hes so hot and how they come up to him at their shows and are wanting to take a picture with him but they don't know (or care) that he actually is a real person with a real story.
