"Rumored Nights" as written by William E Beckett Jr, Michael Carden, Michael Chislett, Andy Mrotek, David Katz and Sam Hollander....
I walked you home most days
To beat the traffic after class
With all my best intentions
But when the weather changed
Like fine print, you were hard to read
Blind-folded, eyes wide open
Staring through me

I never heard the words that were spoken
With the rumored nights, with the rendezvous
I never thought the whispers were true 'til now

I saw things that I shouldn't have tonight, tonight
I know now what I couldn't have
I've gone too far to turn it back
I've gone too far to turn it back

Followed you home halfway
Over the fence to your backyard
With all my best intentions
And through your window frame
Outstretched and lying on your bed
Blind-folded, eyes wide open
Staring through me

Uninvited, no one knows
How much I care, how bad you are
How good we'd be, but you won't let me in
Goodnight I'm leaving

I walked you home most days

    General CommentThis is my favorite off the new album, probably. Along with 'midtown' which is simply beautiful.

    General CommentIt sounds like someone was hearing all these rumours about their lover being unfaithful, but they never believed them until they caught their lover out themselves.

    General Commenti personally think this means that he realized that he was in love with someone

    General Commentthis song reminds me of santi a bit, and it's the most impressive on the album. i do agree with the denial part, it almost sounds as if the speaker is watching everything almost outside of himself and can't believe it.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song.
    It has to be my favourite on the new CD.
    It seems that a highschool rumour has changed his opinion of a girl he really, really liked. Even though he never believed them until he saw it with his own eyes.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely fantastic. It has so much emotion and feel behind the lyrics, and the rhythm really goes. One of my favorites, for sure.

    I think it's about a guy who is in love with a girl, but they are just friends (or they don't know each other). He hasn't told her, because he's afraid she doesn't return them or simply because he's happy with just being friends for now.

    "I walked you home most days
    To beat the traffic after class
    With all my best intentions"

    I think "best intentions" simply means that he really cares about her. He cares for her safety, but the fact he also gets to see her is a big plus.

    "I never heard the words that were spoken
    With the rumored nights
    With the rendezvous
    I never thought the whispers were true till now"

    People have been talking about her love life. Maybe she's cheating, or she's whoring herself. It just seems like something of a big deal if people are talking about it.

    "I've gone too far to turn it back"

    Not too sure, but I think he's gone too far of pushing aside his real feelings, not telling them? Hmm..

    "Uninvited
    No one knows
    How much I care, how bad you are
    How good we'd be
    But you won't let me in
    Goodnight, I'm leaving"

    He's never told anyone about his feelings. She won't let him in...I think that line talks about how clueless she is, or how SHE'S the one in denial, maybe. But regardless, she won't let him in. And now he's seen what she's done/doing and he's finally decided to give up and go, probably telling himself that she's not worth it.

    Well, that's my take on it! :]
