"Trading Heartbeats" as written by and David Ryan/withenshaw Strauchman....
You're just trading heartbeats, baby
You're just changing the person between your sheets
You're just trading heartbeats, baby
That's fine with me

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah yeah

Tell your friends not to speak until they're sober
They would slip as their inhibitions lower
My lips are sealed but you still speak in fiction
So keep telling your stories even though I'll never listen

I heard the bad news, I heard all about you
It's not what you did, it's just what you do

You're just trading heartbeats, baby
You're just changing the person between your sheets
You're just trading heartbeats, baby
That's fine with me

I've got you right down to the bone
But I don't let my feelings show
But I still remember all the long drives home
We sing, we sing

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah yeah

You're just trading heartbeats, baby
You're just changing the person between your sheets
You're just trading heartbeats, baby
That's fine with me

Oh, oh

Give it up and just let it go
What you had you will never know
The reason is right but the feelings are wrong
Now we sing to a different song

Do you remember when we sang?
Do you remember when we sang?
Do you remember when we sang?
We sang, we sang

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

You're just trading heartbeats, baby
You're just changing the person between your
You're just trading heartbeats, baby
That's fine with me

Give it up and just let it go
What you had you will never know
The reason is right but the feelings are wrong
Now we sing to a different song

And that's fine with me

    General Commentdave's mom was such a compulsive liar when he was growing up that he used to get reallyreally mad at her. then they would get in to HUGE fights and she would leave and go out and get drunk. and she would come home and tell him her stories about the bar. but he wouldnt listen. and then she was drinking one night and she got a heart attack and had to have open heart surgery. and she kept having to get new hearts "trading heartbeats" and she kept making her sheets dirty so she kept getting new sheets and giving her old ones to her friends. "changing the person between the sheets" and then on the car rides home from the hospital they always sing together cause she was alive. and she always promise she would never drink again, but she did. and it kept goi9ng on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. that was the last time though.

    General Commenti met the lead singer at warped tour, he was walking around selling this CD and he came up to us.

    he was reallly nice, and i bought the CD for $5 :)


    anyways, it kind of sounds like he's saying
    You're just trading heartbeats, baby
    You're just changing the verse inbetween your sheets

    it makes sense, listen closely.

    General Commenti think its about a boy who had feelings for his gal friend but all she does now is get drunk and have one night stands and thats ok with him but he does wish she was like she used to be because she could have had him :)


    What you had you will never know
    The reason is right, but the feelings are wrong
    Now we sing to a different song.

    General Comment@Ellie: Whhhhaaattttt?

    I think it's about an ex-girlfriend or something?
    "I still remember all the long drives home."
    "What you had, you will never know."


    And now she's a slut and just sleeps around.
    "You're just changing the person between your sheets."

    His attitude is just like, whatever I don't care.
    But he's still reminiscing on the good times.
    "Do you remember when we sang?" etc.
