“Let’s take the longest way home?”
so I can listen to the
words that let me know;
I'm not working well under pressure;
may take a few shots to make things better
and now its three am
"let’s walk to the corner and back" she said
and I swear its true,
that there were other things I knew,
when I was thinking a substitute,
that was the wrong idea that was
the worst idea for you.

you said it never would end up like this
then again I never said
anything

on those long three flights to the top of the stairs,
a goodnight kiss? it wasn’t there
and it rained
from the way back down to half way home
I turned around because you called for me

when I picked up the phone
the first thing that was said
"Just drive down here, I can’t get you out of my head"
and this whole time I thought you meant
I was stuck in your heart (I was stuck in your heart)
as well as your…

im just a coward and you’re just a liar at heart
heres to missing a chance
not even speaking toolate
not saying anything that would make a start
I’ve spent a lifetime
waiting for the right time
there is no better time than here right now
this is all I have to say
just one time
there is no better time than here right now

    General CommentOn a first listen, I really like these guys. They sound like a pop Four Year Strong-ish version of blink 182. It's good to hear something a little less mindless.

    Song MeaningI think this song is a story of a guy who wants to tell a girl that he likes her. He thinks that the girl likes him too. As it turns out, the girl doesn't really like him, but at the end of the song, she kinda beats himself up for not telling her how he feels about her, regardless of how she feels towards him, and that he "...[missed] a chance" that night at"...the top of the stairs".
