"Pretty Melody" as written by Butch Walker and Michael Trent....
Do you remember when we met?
Liquor drinks and cigarettes
All the boys were taking bets
Credit cards, so in debt
Bought drinks from you at the bar
Poured them out behind my car
So I could come back where you are
And order from you again
And again

I'll be your open tab
You'll be my favorite sin

You're such a pretty melody
I'm just a tattooed tragedy
Oh baby we don't have to be
Like the rest of them

What time can we get out of here?
I got some words you need to hear
I really wanna make it clear
I don't do this everywhere
How do I make this not sound cheap?
I wanna show you where I sleep
Keep you there a couple weeks
Make you come again
And again

I'll be your waste of time
You'll be my happy end

You're such a pretty melody
I'm just another tattooed tragedy
Oh baby we don't have to be
Like the rest of them
It's anything but hard to see
I want all of you all over me
There's not a single part of me
That won't ever let you...

You're such a pretty melody
I'm just another tattooed tragedy
Oh baby we don't have to be
Like the rest of them
It's anything but hard to see
I want all of you all over me
There's not a single part of me
That won't ever let you go

    My InterpretationThis song is about the things that you will do to have a chance with the person you like from a distance.
    It's all about how lust can lead you to believe that you want to be with this person, and how you dream up your lives together... and his desperate measures to get her on the same page as his dreams.
    I think that most of the things he says towards the end are propositions that he would like to give the girl, but won't really happen, he's dreaming up what he wants their relationship to be like in a perfect world and if she loved him too, the way he would treat her... etc.
    When he sings "You're such a pretty melody/I'm just another tattooed tragedy", it seems like he feels that he's not good enough for this girl, she's beautiful and perfect in his eyes, and he's a failure.
    I wish someone dream about me the way he does about this girl, seems it's always the other way around. *sighs*
