your flower tongue wilts with too much sun
and that's where we've been living for so long
so send it off the western coast
and watch the sun set with your shrinking voice
see, i ain't the boy she loves the most
i'm just enough to fill the void her daddy left.

lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.

but i often wondered just how deep i could
sink my teeth into that crease on your arm
the place where all the good times,
they go and grow.

would it taste the same, the same for me?
well, would it sound the same coming from me?
such an awful tearing sound.

lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.
changing for me...

oh, all the things they said about you,
paper thin walls stacked around you,
an hour glass is silhouetting me.

no matter how hard i try
or how dirty you fight
there is no place on god's great earth
where you can go to hide from me

lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
(she says)
"wanna get me high?"
lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely,
don't you go changing for me.
changing for me...

    General Comment:Well,this is obviously about a guy who is into a girl who is only into him when she has nothing else. He knows it but he still can't let her go. He's lonely without her and she only wants him around when she's lonely without anybody else.

    General Comment:what can you hide kinda sounds like 'wanna get me high?'
    but im not too sure on that

    i really love all the songs so far.
    i needed to hear something other than sink into me.

    i love the second verse and how it sounds
    but not too sure about why good times would grow in the crease of an arm.
    im sure its not literal.
    all i can think of is walking linking arms with someone else.
    but im sure thats not even relevant, just the image that popped into mind.

    General Comment:Again, this boyfriend is making assumptions (as usual). His girlfriend is fully aware that she could make friends, date, ect, she simply CHOOSES not to. And he's only like the thousandth person to come knocking on her door and usually she flicks them away from her but with this particular guy she has chosen not too.

    General Comment:Having just bought the album, I've been sitting here listening to this song for a while. In the chorus the words are definitely:

    (she said, she said)
    you wanna get me out
    you wanna get me out

    Other than that it's good.

    ^ obvious drug reference kiddos.
    Girl likes drugs, has daddy issues, people know what shes like, talk about her, and he knows that hes the best she can get.
