"Smitten for the Mitten" as written by and Craigery Owens Bradley Bell....
Just me and you, with the world in our hands.

So say what you want, I'm really not who you think I am,
I'll keep the ones that make me sane,
So stop telling me I'm not who you thought I would be.

And I'm so much better now that I'm far from you,
This passion drowns our need for love.

Don't you ask me again the questions, just come on and follow me,
Through the wires and ocean bottoms, through the skies and empty rooms,
Through the pit of my stomach, coming up through my throat,
Regret and failure, the need to keep you coming back for more.

And I'm so much better now that I'm far from you,
This passion drowns our need for love,
And we can't stop, even if we wanted to,
This passion drowns our need for love.

And this is all still so new to me, our eyes have lost their colour,
And now I'm trying, I'm trying to keep my balance,
But there is nothing, there's nothing to keep me steady,
And I'll hold myself up.

And I'm so much better now that I'm far from you,
This passion drowns our need for love,
And we can't stop, even if we wanted to,
This passion drowns our need for love.

    General Commentomg this song blew me away when i heard it haha
    im impressed and confused cuz had all of the new songs been put on bpb then that cd would have been way better, not that it wasn't already great

    i think its about craig or the character of the song finding or trying to find a new resolve coming out of a relationship and finding that he's better off now

    but it doesn't really matter what its about cuz this song pwnz =]

    General Comment"I keep the world to make me sane"
    is supposed to be
    "i'll keep the ones that make me sane"

    "Through the walls and ocean bottoms"
    is supposed to be
    "through the wires and ocean bottoms"

    "From the pit of my stomach"
    is supposed to be
    "through the pit of my stomach"

    "And we can't stop breathing if we wanted to"
    is supposed to be
    "and we can't stop even if we wanted to"

    "If I fold myself around"
    is supposed to be
    "and i'll hold myself up"

    the CD comes with the right ones. :)

    General Commentmy favorite lines are "I'm really not who you think i am, i keep the ones who make me sane so stop telling me im not who you thought i would be" just because the way he says it is so angry and he i feel as though he is confident in the decisions to severe all the ties he has with a loved one

    when gthe song says "this passion drowns our need for love" i feel like its a relationship where they try to make eachother's life hell, which totally distracts them from thinking of the love they once had for eachother

    "And this is all still so new to me, our eyes have lost their colour,
    And now I'm trying, I'm trying to keep my balance,
    But there is nothing, there's nothing to keep my steady,
    And I'll hold myself up.".. at this point in the song is where he starts to realize the error of his ways and the cost, he now has to be independent and instead of having a crutch with the person hes writing about he cant because they are no longer on friendly terms, and i think the eyes losing colors is the understanding they both had for eachother is lost

    overall amazing song with such emotion with such few words
