"The Reasons" as written by and Joe/roche Smith....
How I don't know how to sing,
I can barely play this thing,
But you never seem to mind,
And you tell me to fuck off,
When I need somebody to,
How you make me laugh so hard,
How whole years refuse to stay,
Where we told them to bad dog,
Locked up blindly in a word,
Or a misplaced souvenir,
How the past chews on your shoes,
And these memories lick my ear.
I know,
You might role your eyes at this,
But I'm so
Glad that you exist.
How we waste our precious time,
Marching in the picket line,
That surround those striking hearts,
And the time is never now,
And we know who we should love,
But we're never certain how.
I know,
You might role your eyes at this,
But I'm so
Glad that you exist.
I know,
You might role your eyes at this,
But I'm so
Glad that you exist.
I know,
You might role your eyes at this,
But I'm so,
Glad that you exist.

    General Commentthe dog metaphor is amazing... "How the past chews on your shoes, and these memories lick my ear"... other than that, it is just a good love song i think

    General CommentMy best friend had me listen to this song and I fell in love.
    It always reminds me of him and me. I'll tell him when hes being stupid about something and he'll tell me the same but when it's all said and done, i'm glad he exists.

    That pretty much pinpoints my life story. Beautifully written.

    General Commentwow i never read the lyrics all together, amazingly honest and erudite. the song sort of sums up being young to me, you know? how you look back and suddenly you're way older and things didn't exactly turn out the way you thought they would but it's actually sort of okay.
    definitely speaks to me--knowing who to love but not how. i heart this band.

    General CommentI know you might roll your eyes at this, but I'm so glad that you exist...

    that's one of the most beautiful and suitable lines in a song I've ever heard....always reminds me at my boyfriend and how crazy I go when he tells me this :)
