well dont say good night
cause its not your right
to take this away from me
when i'm afraid you'll leave
one night

and pretty girls
can shake the graves
of sad boys past
and they'll twist and moan in hopes
of sending those sad boys home
all alone

well please
dont speak it of me
to your family
when im gone
I like them to think of me
as a martyred me
and sing the eulogy

and pretty girls
can shake the graves
of sad boys past
and they'll twist and moan in hopes
of sending those sad boys home
all alone

you could have said something
if you figured it out
you could have kept your mouth closed
but nobody knows how

    General CommentI believe the correst lyric is "Don't speak ill of me"...not "speak it of me".

    General Commenti absolutely love this song; hopefully it ends up on their next release.

    i saw TGB a total of 3 times during the entire duration of SXSW, and each time they killed it. if you haven't seen them live, i highly suggest it.

    General Commenti agree this is a great song.
    but they already released it on their ep.
    but who knows maybe they'll put it on there next full length.
    :]
