This is the first time in a long time
That I've felt like coming home for the holidays
Everybody's rushing about
Why won't anybody hear me out?
My money's low
So instead I'll write you a song everyone will know
Everyone will know
So here it goes

Can you hear me?
I write so much that it makes me sick
That is all
About you

Let's drop everything
And not come back 'til next fall
Everyone knows that you've got me
Right where you want me to be

I'm coming home for the bright lights
And the long nights
Driving around with your friends in your parents car
We're the ones who made it out
We're the ones who they'll talk about

My money's low
So instead I'll write you a song everyone will know
Everyone will know
So here it goes

Can you hear me?
I write so much that it makes me sick
That is all
About you

Let's drop everything
And not come back 'til next fall
Everyone knows that you've got me
Right where you want me to be

What we've done this year
It was the best times
It was the worst times
But we built something here

Looking back on what we've done this year
It was the best times
It was the worst times
But we built something here

Can you hear me?
I write so much that it makes me sick
That is all
About you

Let's drop everything
And not come back 'til next fall
Everyone knows that you've got me
Right where you want me to be

Can you hear me? (can you hear me?)
I write so much that it makes me sick
That is all
About you

Let's drop everything (let's drop everything)
And not come back 'til next fall
Everyone knows that you've got me
Right where you want me to be

    General CommentThis is one of my absolute most favorite ADTR songs out of all of their songs. XD
    I think this song is about Jeremy(lead vocals) coming back home to Ocala after a long time for the holidays, and it tears to be coming home because he hated growing up in Ocala. And he's getting sick of writing songs because all he tends to write about is this girl he knows. But he's willing to put the past behind just for the holidays and spend time with old friends and family.

    General CommentI really think its "Read" not "Write"
    Like he's reading something about someone and after he reads all about it it makes him sick. But it def sounds like "Write" So idk.
    This song is so amazing tho, and the video is sickkkk.
    I was gonna post lyrics but some of the vocals i couldnt understand.
    Thanks for posting them dude.
