Hey thanks for everything
For putting up with me when I get cranky
I know I'm such a pain
And yeah thanks for losing everything with me
The night we went to Atlantic City
Of course it had to rain

And you think that I'm angry
But I think that you're sad
We know it's not so bad
Here living the life we have

So hey thanks for not hating me
When I wake you up at eight in the morning
Because I lost the keys
And yeah thanks for staying in with me
I know you'd probably rather be out drinking
Than in with the TV

And you think that I'm angry
But I think that you're sad
We know it's not so bad
Here living the life we have
So hey thanks

I'm not sad anymore
And you think that I'm angry
But I think that you're sad
We know it's not so bad
Here living the life we have
So hey thanks

    General CommentATP: What's the story behind it 'Hey Thanks', from the guests to the ukulele and horns?

    S: I wrote 'Hey Thanks' for a girl named Jessica who I spent the last two years living with and being in love with. We are no longer together but she has the kindest heart of anyone I know and I'm glad that a song for her made the record. I wrote it in our bedroom, with the ukulele my dad bought me as a birthday present. It wasn't supposed to be a The Wonder Years song but it made it way into one. Rachel [Minton, from Zolof & The Rock Roll Destroyer] sings on it because she is Jessica's favorite singer and I felt like that made the song more special. Matt plays trombone on it Ubecause it sounds cool as hell. I think it's my favorite song on 'The Upsides'.
