I figured I'd go
At the least to check in cause I just miss her grin
And to show
That I didn't really never wanna see you again

And my heart
Caves in when I look at you

This is so hard

Do you take pictures off the walls
When you know I'm coming to your room?
Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

I wasn't surprised
She was
Chillin' lookin' hot in her bed smoking pot
And I kept my distance I was a good boy

And my heart
Caves in when I look at you

This is so hard

Do you take pictures off the walls
When you know I'm coming to your room?
Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

    MemoryTotally reminds me of the first time I hung out with my ex after we broke up. It had been months, but for whatever reason, we agreed that we needed to see each other. This song perfectly captures that nostalgic feeling of seeing an old flame, that suppressed hurt that bubbles up, telling yourself not to give in, EVERYTHING. I can't say that I care for this guy anymore (we ended up getting back together, and I can say I got the closure I needed in the first place haha), but damn, this song, musically and lyrically, just fucking does it.

    It also reminds me of Jimmy Eat World, which is crazy, because "A Praise Chorus" is what gave me the guts to go after him, anyway. It's sort of like the old me meets the new me haha.

    Lyric Correction(Verse 1)
    I figured I'd go.
    At the least to check in cause I just miss her grin
    And to show
    That I didn't really never wanna see you again.

    (Chorus)
    And my heart caves in when I look at you.
    This is so hard, this is so hard.

    And my heart caves in when I look at you.
    This is so hard.

    Do you take pictures off the walls?
    When you know I'm coming to your room?
    Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

    (Verse 2)
    I wasn't surprised.
    She was chillin' lookin' hot,
    in her bed smoking pot.
    And I kept my distance, I was a good boy.

    (Chorus)

    Do you take pictures off the walls?
    When you know I'm coming to your room?
    Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

    General CommentI figured I'd go

    ( He secretly misses her but he tells her other wise, every chances he gets to see her he takes it because he misses her that much)

    And my heart
    Caves in when I look at you
    this is so hard

    ( He misses her so much, when he sees her his heartbreaks)



    Do you take pictures off the walls
    When you know I'm coming to your room?
    Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

    ( Since they broken up she had lovers after him, she attempts to hide these things to not hurt him even more)

    I wasn't surprised
    She was
    Chillin' lookin' hot in her bed smoking pot
    And I kept my distance I was a good boy
    And my heart
    Caves in when I look at you

    ( She's obviously isn't a good influence, because of this he kept his distance from her, but he regrets it now )

    This is so hard

    Do you take pictures off the walls
    When you know I'm coming to your room?
    Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?

    General CommentIt's great to see how many fans these guys have. I grew up with the members of this band and they're great friends of mine and I remember Zac telling me that he wanted to start a band. Damn can't believe it's been 9 years.
