"Swear It Like You Mean It" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
Hands down I swear that I came so prepared to be here by myself
And I'd be just fine but most of the all the time you're with me on my mind
It's why I stay so cold and ask you please don't go

And you were turning out the lights so he could sing to you
Because you want him to, I think he wants you too
And as for me I'll spend the night a darker shade of blue
And dance with the thought of you
At least until we find a song that we can sing too

And heads stay, tales drown alone but in this town
Oh my God how I'd love to tear it down
Cause I've been thinking about tragedy and how it's been my company
I've kept to keep me seamlessly intact in spite of everything

You came with lipstick and some bruises and another's arms
And left my world a littler darker, and left my heart a little harder
Well you keep the ring, turns out it never made your fingers warm
And at the hour of my falling were you there and did you fall as well I'm sure

And you were turning out the lights so he could sing to you
Because you want him to, I think he wants you too
And as for me I'll spend the night a darker shade of blue
And dance with the thought of you
At least until we find

    General CommentFirst!
    But, yeah, GREAT song.

    About the girl he loves leaving him for someone else? Perhaps...

    General CommentIs it just me or does this title sound suspiciously like "I swear this time I mean It"? But... they have completely opposite meanings. I wonder if the title was supposed to be a slap in the face from Jason to Mayday Parade, or if it is a coincidence.
