"Zzzzz" as written by David Katz, Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall, Ian Crawford, Cash Colligan, Alex Johnson and Sam Hollander....
And I'm up down spinning around
I'm high and dry and kicked to the ground
I'm lost and I'll never be found
My lips were much too shy
The lines about you they never rhymed
And you said I'd never get things right
(I never said it was the best thing for you)

And baby where'd you go
I need you here tonight

Singing myself to sleep
And you're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
And you're haunting every memory
Goodbye, get out, of my life
Goodnight

And you're hot cold
You're bad around the bones
You run while I lose control
I miss you forever you'll stay gold
And girl you know I'm not getting by
I've lost it you're in my mind
And everyday's the darkest day of my life
(I never said it was the best thing for you)

And baby where'd you go
I need you here tonight

Singing myself to sleep
And you're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
And you're haunting every memory
Goodbye, get out, of my life
Goodnight

Cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
And I'm falling can't breathe tonight
And our story has fade to black inside (inside)

Cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
And I'm falling can't breathe tonight
And our story has fade to black inside (inside)

Singing myself to sleep
And you're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
And you're haunting every memory
Goodbye, get out, of my life
Goodnight

Cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
And I'm falling can't breathe tonight
And our story has fade to black inside (inside)

    General CommentThis song is amazing! I think he's still in the process of moving on. It's like he just wants all the pain to just go away in a snap. I'm pertaining to this part of the song. . .

    "Singing myself to sleep
    And just in my favorite melody
    It's been three weeks
    How long can this go on?
    Singing myself to sleep
    Jaunting every melody
    Get out, goodbye
    Get out of my life"

    I might be wrong though. XD

    General CommentListen to the acoustic version of it here, easier to interpret the lyrics:

    And I'm up, down spinning around
    I'm high and dry and kicked to the ground
    I'm lost and I'll never be found

    My lips they where much too shy
    The lines about you, they never rhymed
    And you said I never get things right
    (I never said I was the best thing for you)

    And baby where'd you go
    I need you here tonight

    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're still my favorite melody
    It's been three weeks
    How long can this go on
    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're haunting every memory
    And get out, goodbye,
    get out of my life, goodbye

    And you're hot and cold
    You're better(?) in my bones
    You run while I lose control
    I miss you
    Forever you'll stay gold
    And you know that I'm not getting by
    I've lost it, you're in my mind
    And everydays the darkest of my life (life)
    (I never said I was the best thing for you)

    Baby where'd you go
    I need you here tonight

    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're still my favorite melody
    It's been three weeks
    How long can this go on
    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're haunting every memory
    And get out, goodbye,
    get out of my life, goodbye

    'cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
    And I'm fallin' can't breath tonight
    And a story I fade to black inside (inside)
    (I never said I was the best thing for you)
    'cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
    And I'm fallin' can't breath tonight
    And a story I fade to black inside (inside)

    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're still my favorite melody
    It's been three weeks
    How long can this go on
    Singing myself to sleep
    And you're haunting every memory

    And get out, goodbye,
    get out of my life

    'cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
    And I'm fallin' can't breath tonight
    And a story I fade to black inside

    General Comment"'Cause I'm drowning
    (When I close my eyes)
    And I'm falling
    (I can't breathe tonight)
    End of story
    I fade to black inside"

    i love that part.

    the songs basically about getting over a break up.
    and hes having a hard time moving on.

    General Comment'My lips were much too shy'
    I think this means theres alot he wished he'd said.

    'And you're haunting every memory'
    She's all he can think about


    Basically the song is about how the girl let him go and he can't get over her.

    The only line i don't understand is:
    'You're better in my bones'

    General CommentI always thought of the "You're better in my bones" to be a sexual reference..but maybe I'm just too perverted to see it any other way? :/
    I think that at the end, and this might be the dramatic part of me (forgot the pervertedness), but I think at the end is a reference to suicide?
    Like, as if this story were a movie, then this guy would fall or drown to his death, fade to black, and have the credits roll.
    The one thing that is easy to deduct from this song is that it's about a dude dealing with a break-up that meant alot to him.

    General Commentok, EDIT:
    the words are "battering my bones" not "better in my bones"
    (according to the album booklet)
