Before you twist your tongue
No there's no chance at all
Came here against my will
And my will's tested strong

Until now, I know we've never met
But I don't wanna talk and I'm already upset
That you'll meet your demise in a drunken man's bed
Take another pull to make certain you forget

And to think that you're somebody's daughter
Away at college not getting smarter

Everything changes when all the lights in the room are as low as you
But don't trip you'll sober up soon
Regain an honest perspective as you puke on the floor
Can't remember why your knees are so cut up and sore

And you'll be hung over all day. (all day! all day!)
You'll be hung over all day. (all day! all day)
You'll be hung over all day. (all day! all day)
You'll be hung over all day. (all day! all day)
You'll be hung over all day. (all day! all day)

    Lyric CorrectionAnd you'll be hung over all day (hung over all day!)
    'n you'll be hung over all day (hung over all day!)
    'n you'll be hung over all day (hung over all day!)
    'n you'll be hung over all day (hung over all day!)
    'n you'll be hung over all day (hung over all day!)

    General CommentThis song pretty much speaks for itself. It's about a girl that went away to college and is just getting drunk and being a whore instead of doing what she should be with her life lol

    My InterpretationIt seems to me that he is trying to seem like he is really critical and unsympathetic, but is actually truly hurting with compassion to see a girl have no respect for herself.

    General CommentThis song speaks for itself really but I am currently going through a similar phase, so I feel I could lay my interpretation of his attitude for this song.

    Its really true what they say about college, if youre an outgoing person who wants to party you WILL party. and it will fuck you up. I've always stayed stray of that stuff, but 99% of my friends didn't and over half of them already dropped out of college and the other half got shit for grades cause of the hang overs and late parties and fraternity events and what not.

    I think he sees this girl (that he likes) and knows she is that type, as if he cant really trust her and hes embracing himself for the pain of losing her and watching her potentially ruin her life.

    I also look at when he said "I came here against my will" as he didn't ever want that but she doesnt care and is doing what she wants against him. So he arrived at this situation against his will.

    I find alot of meaning in this song personally, such a great writer.

    General CommentThe lyrics of this song are easy to criticize if you don't read between the lines.
    I think he's trying to say that the girl(s) he's writing about doesn't realize that she's better than the careless decisions she's making.

    I relate to the song in a lot of ways and I give major props to Cannon - he's a way better writer than he gets credit for.
