"When Dreaming Gets Drastic" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
Can we talk just a little more like we did before
Sing it loud like it matters to you
Don't be so whoa oh oh oh, whoa
Oh no

Can this be just a little more heart and a little less consequence
So this is what you think about
But did you have to say it all out loud

And you can stay
Or give your heart to someone else
There'll always be someone here cold to lay beside me
And you can leave cut your loss and save yourself
You can find somebody else to give your worse
But let me fall asleep first

Can this song get a little dark and can it leave a mark
Can I say what I need for a change
But don't be so cold
So bold

This is aimed at what you'll say when the light gets turned out and it all feels the same
Something to sing about
Or maybe something to scream about

And you can stay
Or give your heart to someone else
There'll always be someone here cold to lay beside me
And you can leave cut your loss and save yourself
You can find somebody else to give your worse
But let me fall asleep first

She's in a tight shirt with a little bit of lipstick
And I've never felt this homesick now
As now

You know it really is a shame
Where your hearts at
I guess its something of a game
And how the key fits
And every story ends the same
Can we help it
If this was any other time, any other place we would lose it all
Anything decent
With the memory of her taste
I couldn't fix it
If I was any other boy
If this were any other time, maybe any other place I could lose it all

And you can stay
Or give your heart to someone else
There'll always be someone here cold to lay beside me
And you can leave cut your loss and save yourself
You can find somebody else to give your worse
But let me fall asleep first

You can find somebody else to give your worse
But let me fall asleep first

    General CommentThanks for posting them up...

    Hm, I'm hearing:
    "Sing it loud like it matters to you" instead of "Singing loud like the night is to you"
    "We would lose it all" instead of "We would loose it all"
    "I could lose it all" instead of "We could loose it all"
    "Cause you asked to save yourself" instead of "Cause asked to save yourself"

    But yeah, I'm not really sure... Anyway, awesome song.

    My InterpretationThe song is kinda obvious, he is bluntly telling this girl you can stay with me, or leave me for someone else. That if she leaves him, there are other fish in the sea that can be with him, and he doesn't want to argue with her now (late at night).

    She is obviously stopped acting like they did when they first met, and he wants he to stop being "so bold".

    I think the bridge is talking about how her values in the relationship are not focused on the right things.




    thats my best guess.

    General CommentI adore Go Radio. I could listen to Jason's voice all day, every day. I really really love this song. I feel like he's saying, do what you're going to do, but I don't want to know about it(let me go to sleep first). It seems like he still wants to be with her but she is so dramatic('don't be so woah, oh oh, oh''so this is what you think about, but did you have to say it all out loud.') I think that this relationship is comfortable to him, so he doesn't want her to go, but then he basically says 'just do whatever, I'm over it'. She leaves, and he misses her. He thinks she's perffect, just not for him. This relationship definitely is a game.
    I love how Go Radio always, toward the end of their songs, go in a different direction with the sound. That is always my favorite part!
