So here's another day I'll spend away from you
Another night, I'm on another broken avenue
My bag is ripped and worn, then again now so am I
Take what you want to take, what you wannt to take, what you

I miss the stupid things, we'd go to sleep and then,
You wake me up and kick me out of bed at 3 am
Pick up the phone and hear you saying dirty things to me
Do what you want to do, what you want to do, what you

Take me with you, I start to miss you
Take me home, I don't wanna be alone tonight

And I do want to show you
I will run to you for you till
I can't stand on my own anymore,
I cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to

Hotels are all the same, you're still away from me
Another day, another dollar that I'll never see
Can I get a piece of, piece of, piece of something good
I'd like just a little, like just a little, like just a

I wonder what you're doing, I wonder if you doubt it
I wonder how we used to ever go so long without it
Now I know where I go I'm coming back to you
I'll be where I oughta, be where I oughta, be where I

Take me with you, I start to miss you
Take me home, I don't wanna be alone tonight

And I do want to show you
I will run to you for you till
I can't stand on my own anymore,
I cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die

Take me with you, I start to miss you x9
Take me with home I don't wanna be alone tonight

And I do want to show you
I will run to you for you till
I can't stand on my own anymore
I cross my heart and hope to die
x4

    General CommentI actually think he's on the road and missing her and is sad he isn't able to see her more often.

    "Hotels are all the same, you're still away from me

    My InterpretationI agree with 8fortherecord8, the song is about being on the road and having to leave his girl behind.

    "Take me with you, I start to miss you
    Take me home, I don't wanna be alone tonight"

    ^This seems to me to be the girl talking. She's lonely because he's on the road so much, and she just wants to be with him.

    The chorus sounds like a reassurance. "And I DO want to show you..." He is promising her that she really does mean the world to him. "I promise I love you and would do anything for you - cross my heart!"

    General CommentI'm not so sure. I think that someone's dumped someone, probably she's dumped him, and now he's reminiscing about how things were. So he now misses her and wants her back.

    And, unfortunately 'pop punk' bands sometimes do have songs that edge more towards pop and therefore are more catchy, making it more likely to send them mainstream.
    However, fortunately as they're Canadian, this song's not likely to piss ME off by sending every 12 year old girl into 'OMG I LOVE THE LEAD SINGER' mode over here in England :P

    General CommentSecond verse is a little bit wrong.

    The tales are all the same, you're still away from me
    Another day, another dollar that I'll never see
    Can I get a piece of the, piece of the, piece of something good
    Lie just a little, lie just a little, lie just a

    General Commenti love this band! i saw them live in june and they are simply amazing! i love how they can actually sing, with 4 part harmonies and stuff.

    this song is so catchy. its about an on again, off again relationship, and the guy wants to get back together.
