i'm just like your friends.
i sit solid until the timing's bad and then i take my bow and leave.
i'm so loyal, i'm so loyal, trust me please.
see, nothing's new when you've got no limits and you can test your keyboard's strength to talk you through the rough nights, the dead ends, the fist fights, and all your broken teeth.
see, every model has a weakness and every child has a spot for toys, so if we take the two and we mix them through she'll have the dead-on logic for boys.
and i'm trying to keep you in line, but the city's saying "oh darling, you're mine".
and your smile says you've got it together but your eyes are telling me it's not true.
so every weekend when you're living singing "life is short"
you better think again 'cause growing up's the longest haul, i don't think that i will.
so when the lights go out you better crack the door, everyone's waiting singing "ay bay bay! young love is fleeting".
and i'm trying to keep you in line, but the city's saying "oh darling you're mine".
and you're words say you've got it together now, but you think that love is just a pretty lie. so go ahead and make your move and shake it up and make it feel like love.
and when he's telling you you're pretty, so so pretty keep his eyes above. apologies and empty pickup lines that turn on dimes,
he's got so much. baby don't let it work, you know it never never works, except what he said was...

    General CommentI've googled it a lot and it seems all the lyric sites just copypasted it, but im sure it makes more sense the way I heard it =/

    i'm just like your friends.
    I sing songs until the timing's bad
    and then I take my bow and leave.

    Like from an open mic or a stage or a karaoke where a song would be sung, and you take a bow and leave.

    Thought i'd throw that out there, i'm all about the beat and the harmonies <3 I just have issues with people singing the wrong words and getting all self righteous lol, proove me wrong please =D

    my favourite line :D
    and this:
    "so every weekend when you're living singing "life is short"
    you better think again 'cause growing up's the longest haul, i don't think that i will. "


    i love this song a lot, but i'm not so sure about what it means...

    General Commentwhen he first wrote the song, these were the original lyrics on his myspace blog, along with the "ay bay bay" part.
    i have the shirt and it says "i sit solid until the timing's bad".
    i don't understand how getting the words wrong to a song makes one "self righteous", but alright.
