The days you said you were smarter, knew you were harder
They're over
And the days you told us to grow up, told us to shut up
They're over
But I promise the words that you said, stuck in our heads
They'll come back to haunt you, to taunt you
Keep you from sleeping, keep you from eating
I promise

And at times you made us look stupid, made us feel useless
They're over
And the days you told us to sit out, told us to get out
They're over
But I promise the words that you said, stuck in our heads
They' ll come back to haunt you, to taunt you
Keep you from sleeping, keep you from eating
Yeahh I promise
Yeahh I promise
For this down on my life I promise

We hate to see you go
But now its time to let you know
That shouting never wins, and losing you never felt so good
And so it should, yeah we knew it would
The stars in the sky are about to cry
We hate to see you go
But now its time to let you know
That shouting never wins, and losing you never felt so good
Oh baby
And so it should, yeah we knew it would
The stars in the sky are about to make us liars
Ohh...
Yeahh...

    General CommentThis is a catchy song (as are pretty much all of their songs, I'm glad I came across them) that seems to be addressed to someone the narrator of the song knew that was an all around jerk but is now leaving. Pretty straightforward.
