Traced the cord from the wall,
Don't blink - the best is yet to come
We write this screenplay
The last scene's controlled, it makes me wonder
Why I dream out loud
Park your car next to mine
I get so caught up it sounds
I trip on every

Empty word you say,
I swear you say too much but that's okay
'Cause I ain't got no place to go right now
Tomorrow your backseat days won't count for shit when I'm gone
Just listen to these empty words I fill myself with

Tonight I'll be by your side
But how can I predict the rain
When every southern state I drive past
Keeps me thinking why I scream outloud
(?)
These notes you left me read themselves
with

Empty word you say,
I swear you say too much but that's okay
'Cause I ain't got no place to go right now
Tomorrow your backseat days won't count for shit when I'm gone
Just listen to these empty words I fill myself with

Where do you want to be she said she'd wait
Where do you want to be she said,
she's taken for granted
Said I'm taking you home
Said she'd wait
I remember every single empty word you said
I swear you say too much but that's okay
'Cause I ain't got no place to go right now
Tomorrow your backseat days won't count for shit when I'm gone
Just listen to these empty words I fill myself with

Tomorrow, she said she'd wait
Your empty words won't count for shit when I'm gone,
Tomorrow, she said she'd wait
Your empty words won't count for shit when I'm gone,
When I'm gone
When I'm gone

    General CommentThis is my new favorite band. They remind me of EP All Time Low and Taking Back Sunday. The kind of music that reminds you of summer and humid weather and staying up all night and sitting on the roof at 7 am. It's good stuff, man.

    General CommentOh and three corrections:

    In the first verse, I get so caught up it sounds
    It should be, I get so caught up in sounds

    The question mark park should be
    Ten a.m. comes and goes so fast

    And all the parts where it says backseat days
    should be backseat games
