"The World Has Its Shine (But I Would Drop It On A Dime)" as written by Gabe Saporta and Patrick Stump....
[Chorus:]
I'm not one for love songs
The way I'm livin', makes you feel like giving up but you don't
And I want everything for you
The disappointed because you've been left behind and the word hasn't shine
I would drop it on a dime for you

Hey, ho
And whatever it takes
Hey, ho
I'm going to make my way home
Hey, ho
We can turn our backs on the pasts and start over

[Chorus]

And not long ago
I gave up hope, but you came along
You gave me something I could hold onto
Oh, whoa
And I want you
Oh, whoa
More than you can ever know

Before I met you I use to dream you up and make you up in my mind
Oh, whoa
All I ever wanted was to be understood
You've been the only one who could
I could never turn my back on you

[Chorus]

Hey, ho
And whatever it takes
Hey, ho
I'm going to make my way home
Hey, ho
We can turn our backs on the pasts and start over

And not long ago
I gave up hope, but you came along and gave me something I could hold onto
Oh, whoa
And I want you
Oh, whoa
More than you can ever know (more than you could ever know)
More than you could ever know,
It's true.

[Repeat: x2]
And not long ago
I gave up hope, but you came along and gave me something I could hold onto
Oh, whoa

And want you
Oh, whoa
More than you can ever know

    General Commentits pretty obvious what this song is about.
    guy gives up all hope in love, then meets girl that he would do anything for, and begins to see the world differently.

    i love this one

    General CommentThis song is easy to interpret and simple, but it's probably my favorite on the entire album. It reminds me so much of me and my best friend, every lyric having an important significance to me.

    General CommentThis is the most serious I've seen Cobra Starship.
    I think its about someone in your life that helps you through things and it change you forever.

    General Commentoh gosh, this song could not be anymore true in my life right now.
    it's about how you give up hope, and then someone comes along and makes you believe again, and you just want to do anything to keep them happy and keep them near you.
    it's incredibly sweet.
    :D
