Slow down, you are out of control.
One of us is right. One of us is wrong.
And I know that you're not coming home.
There's no where to park after it gets dark.
Yeah.
Can't tell what I want when you sing
So keep it to yourself, I haven't missed anything.

You are my voice, my microphone.
You are my voice, so take me on.
You are my voice.

Slow down, you are out of control
It could be so easy if it didn't feel so wrong.
And warmed up and your hair is too long.
What if I was young, what if i was younger?
And so, well, finally she showed.
I never should have asked, it was a long time ago.

You are my voice, my microphone.
You are my voice, so take me on.

You are my voice, you are my voice.

You are my voice, my microphone.

You are my voice, my microphone.
You are my voice, so take me on.
You are my voice, my microphone
You are my voice.

You are my voice.

You are my voice.

One of us is right, one of us is wrong.
One of us is right, one of us is wrong.

    General CommentThis song is so good why are there so few
    comments?! I have recently joined the Coconut
    Records bandwagon and am enjoying the ride. There
    music just makes me so happy! I heard an interview
    he had on Sirius and the reason it's called
    "Coconut Records" is because he said that too many
    bands have depressing titles and he though coconuts
    sounded sunny, and fun. Agreed!

    Now 4 the meaning-

    Slow down, you are out of control.
    One of us is right. One of us is wrong.
    And I know that you're not coming home.
    There's no where to park after it gets dark.
    Yeah.
    Can't tell what I want when you sing
    So keep it to yourself, I haven't missed anything.

    ok i think they are in a fight and he sees it as
    there is only one solution to the arguement.
    He knows she will come up with a lame excuse
    ala "no where to park", but really she's just mad.
    And that's why she won't come home.
    He doesn't want to hear her sing because he
    will remember how much he loves her and not
    want to be mad.

    the chorus I think is him just stating that even
    though he gets mad he still couldn't live w/o her

    Slow down, you are out of control
    It could be so easy if it didn't feel so wrong.
    And warmed up and your hair is too long.
    What if I was young, what if i was younger?
    And so, well, finally she showed.
    I never should have asked, it was a long time ago

    So back to the argument. Maybe it would be easier
    on him to argue if he didn't feel so terrible for
    hurting her.Then he says that she is too worked up
    and one throws the hair comment at the other (this
    could go either way). Then he's asking her if he was
    younger would they fight as much, or maybe it's the
    hair thing again. Then he feels bad for bringing
    something up from the past, because it will start
    another arguement..

    I like the "take me on" part because you can only
    really argue with someone you love.(The story of my life)
    And the voice part like I said signifies a part of himself.

    Love the song!
