"Center of Attention" as written by David Jonathan Bendeth, Sam S. Hollander, David Anthony Katz, Brooks Patrick Betts, Christopher Jake Bundrick, Alexander Antonio Garcia, Jeremy Stephen Lenzo and Derek Michael Sanders....
Jennifer, the party's over,
I didn't think you'd make it through the night.
Everybody's gone,
But you're alright.

Sweetie, now, obviously,
You know it's not obvious to me
Why it's not plain enough to see.

You're falling, baby,
I've been waiting,
You took the long way home.
In that dress, it makes me crazy.
I'm not the only one.
It's cold outside.
Keep your heart open wide,
Save it for somebody who cares.
Somebody who cares.

Jennifer, the weekend's over,
But at least you made it through with style.
It all runs together after a while.

Tell me, baby, is it hard to admit?
Do you remember what you did,
Or where we've been?

You're falling, baby,
I've been waiting,
You took the long way home.
In that dress, it makes me crazy,
I'm not the only one.
It's cold outside.
Keep your heart open wide,
Save it for somebody who cares.

You don't have to walk alone tonight.
I don't have to be a gentleman.
You don't have to say a single word,
Or make believe that we could be "just friends."

You're falling, baby,
I've been waiting:
You took the long way home.
In that dress, it makes me crazy,
I'm not the only one.
It's cold outside.
Keep your heart open wide,
Save it for somebody who cares.
Somebody who cares.
Somebody who cares.

    General Commentone of my faves off the new record :D I think it should've been on the Jennifer's Body soundtrack though: they use the name "Jennifer" and suggests that Jennifer is kinda...uh...promiscuous because of what she's wearing, haha

    My InterpretationJennifer is a wild party chick whose life is going down the drain but won't admit it. And this song is just about how trying to explain that to her

    General CommentI hate how people say that post-jason mayday sucks. because it really doesnt. the lyrics are just as meaningful, in a different way. Tales Told By Dead Friends and Lesson In Romantics have lyrics that are more poetic and more metaphoric. Anywhere But Here is just as deep, but in a more generic way. But they are and always will be a beautiful amazing band.
