"This One's A Cheap Shot" as written by and David Ryan/withenshaw Strauchman....
Biting my tongue just to get me by
Sick of going back and forth with the cheap shots all night
I sink my teeth in a little bit deeper
The red on my teeth should be enough for you

Just one more and more, it's never enough
To have me wrapped around your finger
I've got you turning blue
We can't put down our pride

When did we think that this would be easy?
We must have been out of our minds
We were holding so tight
It just slipped through our fingers but we won't let go

Holding your breath just to pass the time
Don't fill an empty space with the same conversation
I feel your words right behind your kiss
The taste of your lips should be enough

But I just want more and more, it?s never enough
To have you wrapped around my finger
You've got me turning blue
We can't put down our pride

When did we think that this would be easy?
We must have been out of our minds
We were holding so tight
It just slipped through our fingers but we won't let go

Waiting for something to tell me
Things are getting better or are they getting better?
Don't put me down, if you're staring at the ground
We're sure to fall, we're sure to fall, we're sure to fall

You just want more and more, it's never enough
To have me wrapped around your finger
I've got you turning blue
We can't put down our pride

When did we think that this would be easy?
We must have been out of our minds
We were holding so tight
It just slipped through our fingers but we won't let go

When did we think that this would be easy?
We must have been out of our minds
We were holding so tight
It just slipped through our fingers but we won't let go

    General Commentactually, andthetruthcomes out, I was assuming that the phrase "I've got you turning blue" refers to the finger statement. like, he's wrapped around her finger, cutting off the circulation... aka turning blue? maybe I'm wrong, but thats what I came up with. Favorite Every Avenue song (:

    General CommentI know!! It's my favorite too.. I'm really surprised by the lack of comments.... I'm not exactly sure what it means, but here's my interpretation:

    It's about struggling in a relationship because the two people want to stay together, but they're not keeping promises....

    "I've got you turning blue
    We can't put down our pride" & "Holding your breath just to pass the time
    Don't fill an empty space with the same conversation"

    Turning blue... goes with the saying, "don't hold your breath." Someone stood someone up, or maybe didn't call when they said they would, came late...

    "When did we think that this would be easy?
    We must have been out of our minds
    We were holding so tight
    It just slipped through our fingers
    But we won't let go"

    'holding so tight' makes me think that they're so dependent on the person for making them feel good, cause they've been with them that long, but when the person can't be there for them for whatever reason 'it slipped through our fingers' the person gets really down and can't handle himself. But he still wants the relationship to last. 'we won't let go.'

    General CommentI'm a little late with posting, but I JUST heard this song... haha. :)

    I think you guys have the right idea, but I think it's more about arguments. I think the turning blue part is saying they're expecting certain things from each other that they aren't getting. They sound really dependent on each other. It switches from "you've got me" and "I've got you" a lot in the song, but with the same sentences which implies they both are disappointed in the relationship. Also, to jump back a little bit, they also say "can't put down our pride" which kind of reminds me of the fact that when two stubborn people are arguing about something, they always want the last word and even if they are wrong, they don't want to apologize (some think apologizing hurts their pride) On a final note, they're basically just holding onto a relationship neither are completely happy with because it's what's become comfortable. It's a security blanket, so to speak.
