"You Hold Your Breath, I'll Hold My Liquor" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
And I thought I'd I ask you something
I thought I'd never ask a soul
About how the nights here goe so crazy
We lose control
Cause the suns been up for hours
Did Florida catch you out of breath
And we're all hoping where we started
Is where the night will end the best

And all I want to know
Is if you hear me
I've never spoke this clearly
(Could this any better)
Can you tell me how this goes
As you start your symphony
Let it sing us both to sleep
Even if the room don't stop from spinning

Let's leave our imprints on the sidewalk
Like our initials in the sand
And see if Tallahasse tempts you to hold my hand
Cause its just like Califorinia summers
With better warmer Floridia nights
The songs get louder as I kiss you
I hope my words all come out right

And all I want to know
Is if you hear me
I've never spoke this clearly
(Could this any better)
Can you tell me how this goes
As you start your symphony
Let it sing us both to sleep
Even if the room don't stop from spinning

Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh

We'll start the night out with a promise
Sing it loud and honest
By the end of this we won't feel a thing

And all I want to know
Is can you hear me
I've never spoke this clearly
Can you tell me how this goes
As you start your symphony
Let it sing us both to sleep
(Could this be any better)

And all I want to know
Is can you hear me
And can you hear me
(Could this be any better)
Can you tell me how this goes
As you start your symphony
Let it sing us both to sleep
Even if the room don't stop from spinning

    General CommentWhat is everybody's take on the meaning of this song? I love it. I am just getting a wild night out, drinking, having a good time. 'And we're all hoping where this started is where the night will end the best.' sounds like he's hoping to hook up with somebody by the end of the night. Idk.
    I do love it, I just can't figure the 'can you hear me' stuff out. What do you guys think?

    General CommentI think this song is about falling in love for the night at a party. The beginning is making small conversation, asking if she knows how the nights here got so crazy?

    "And all I want to know, Is if you hear me, I've never spoke this clearly"
    Slurred speech, when you are drunk you think you are talking just fine? Possibly being amazed at how well they are hitting it off?

    They will have a great night, hit it off perfectly, the alcohol will fake real feelings, but in the morning its just a hookup and the feelings aren't really there: "We'll start the night out with a promise, Sing it loud and honest, By the end of this we won't feel a thing"
