"Sins of My Youth" as written by and Tyler Glenn Branden Campbell....
I've got these habits that I cannot,
I've got these habits that I can't,
I've got these habits that I cannot, break.

I found life out on the weekdays
When we would drive to some new city
Call me crazy I was born to make a mess
Would you love me still if I were to confess
That I had a little
Too much fun
Back when I was young

I've got these habits that I cannot break
And as I'm older there is more at stake
Go ahead and call me fake but these are the sins
The sins of my youth
I break habits just to fall in love
But I do it on designer drugs
You can call me
Dangerous
But these are the sins
The sins of my youth

All these mainstream made emotions
Made me the boy that they wanted me to be
But
When I took down my defenses
For the first time there was something in me
Yeah something in me
Hot like a smoking gun
Back when I was young

I've got these habits that I cannot break
And as I'm older there is more at stake
Go ahead and call me fake but these are the sins
The sins of my youth
I break habits just to fall in love
But I do it on designer drugs
You can call me dangerous
But these are the sins
The sins of my youth

Would you love me still
Would
You love me still
Would you love me still
Would you love
I've got these habits
That I cannot
I've got these habits that I cannot
I've got these habits that I cannot break

    General CommentI think this one is pretty simple.. Coming to terms with your life. Growing up and accepting the fact that you are only who you are because of who you were...and searching for that acceptance in her. Probably my favorite track..

    General CommentAfter forming, the Neon Trees band members upped sticks to a house in the Californian desert and embarked on an intensive nine-month stint of writing, rehearsing and recording. The period brought about a series of tough challenges and at one point each band member had some sort of breakdown. Lead vocalist Tyler Glenn explained to English newspaper The Sun: "We were all doing things that we shouldn't - things that we had long given up, whether it would be drugs or other things. I wrote 'Sins Of My Youth' about that year."
