She's got these brand new friends, I've got a few new songs
But mostly new headaches, and reasons not to call
I slept through all today and rearranged my head
Couldn't forget your face or how we watched our breath
Flee from our tired mouths, they were lost
Please, I've got enough on my mind

And I'll be fine, I'm sure you're justified
I can't believe my conscience told me that we'd be alright
So roll your eyes, like you need to one more time
Take your time away
I'm wide awake all night
Alright

So what did you expect
When you've got me cornered here like this
Where I can feel your breath
I don't want reminders that I can't leave
When I'm last to know when you leave
Oh, I want this, the closure you keep
Behind locked doors and closed eyes
And I'm thinking will you accept that I am..

Fine, I'm sure you're justified
I can't believe my conscience told me that we'd be alright
So roll your eyes, like you need to one more time
Take your time away
I'm wide awake all night

Girl you keep on talking
Your hands on my face
I feel you start breathing
Your words are replaced by
The things I don't mean
And the feeling that leaves
Me holding here
But I don't know what you expect from me
When it's this hard to breathe

But I'll be fine, I'm sure you're justified
I can't believe my conscience told me that we'd be alright
So roll your eyes, like you need to one more time
Take your time away
I'm wide awake all night

And I'll be fine, I'm sure you're justified
I can't believe my conscience told me that we'd be alright
So roll your eyes, like you need to one more time
Take your time away
I'm wide awake all night
Alright

    General CommentOOOOOOOOH MAN

    I fucking love this song. It's catchy as hell. And that's before the harpsichord comes in. This album is terrific. I'm guessing brand, new and friends are seperated with commas becuase he's saying her firends care about really material things like brands and new stuff and he can't stand them and is having second thoughts about her. Awesome tune

    General Commenti had always just kinda half-listened to this song all the time
    i had always thought that this song was about them breaking up and now suddenly she's like a whole new person and she's got all these new friends and such

    im like in love with what fivestarmotel noted about the title.
    brand,new,friends. friends obsessed with brand names and new trends. i never put that together, but i think that it works out PERFECTLY with the lyrics to this

    My InterpretationI think its talking about a break up. But I do like the idea that he's second thinking about her, because of her new friends.

    But what I feel is this part

    So what did you expect
    When you've got me cornered here like this
    Where I can feel your breath
    I don't want reminders that I can't leave
    When I'm last to know when you leave
    Oh, I want this, the closure you keep
    Behind locked doors and closed eyes

    Is kind of like, okay I get it, he was never told that she was talking to her new friends of leaving him, so he was last to know, and the more she reminds him that he doesn't want to be with him, its just reminding him of how he can't stop thinking about her as is, and he won't get the closure to their relationship because she never tells him and answers his questions to why she broke up with him.

    This part:

    Girl you keep on talking
    Your hands on my face
    I feel you start breathing
    Your words are replaced by
    The things I don't mean
    And the feeling that leaves
    Me holding here
    But I don't know what you expect from me
    When it's this hard to breathe

    That he wants to maybe work things out with her, but then she denies him, and that he says some mean things. And she points them out, but he's trying to explain that hey, everything is all at once its hard to even "breathe"

    To justify the chorus:

    And I'll be fine, I'm sure you're justified
    I can't believe my conscience told me that we'd be alright
    So roll your eyes, like you need to one more time
    Take your time away
    I'm wide awake all night
    Alright

    That he's done, he gives up, and that he wants her to know fine whatever, I'll be okay without you. And he had some hope that everything would turn up okay. But she's too into herself and just expected him to keep fighting for her, so while she goes off with her new friends, he's wide awake all night.


    :3 thats what I got from it x3
