i met all your friends today
i couldn't think of anything to say
everybody seemed so lonely
but we could play our bad day down
hide behind a wall of sound
communicate with our our eyes only

and we're alone we're alone when we're together we're alone and we don't wanna stay here but we can't go home
and there's so much we've lost along the way
but your the sweetheart of the rodeo
the queen of the all ages show
i saw you at the sunday matinee

you're everything that i'm not
drinking in the parking lot
and then we hear the band start up and then we rush inside
and when the bass drops out and the singer screams and shouts you say "this is that song that i was talking about."
you push your hair behind your ears and you close your eyes

and when you lean in close
when tell me it's the part you love the most
and you pull me out into the light
i don't care about the song
but i could watch you listen all night long
and i feel fine i feel alright i feel alright

    General CommentI LOVE THIS BAND.

    Now that we've got that out of the way, I'm so surprised they don't have more comments on this song. "Treetops," being their most popular song has only four, but this one is more recent and it's catchy. I love it.

    I've heard Beat Radio compared to everything from The Format to Broken Social Scene to old-Jimmy Eat World and they sound amazing in my opinion, but their biggest feat is in the expressive lyrics.

    "We could play our bad day down, hide behind a wall of sound, communicate with our eyes only."

    They made a completely non-verbal but very common human interaction sound beautiful. They do this ALL THE TIME.
    I can't get enough of this music, it's some of the crazy-most-played on my iPod and it's perfect for anything; versatile. I enjoy it most while driving, but I have before listened to Beat Radio while running, hanging out in my room, and sleeping. :)
