"Manners" as written by and Jordan Eckes Taylor Jardine....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Someone should teach you some manners

I wish I had a camera
I think you've got more nerve than you've got tact
I wanna take a picture
Of the look when your words bite your back
Remember how I showed you out just like that

What do you see when you close your eyes
Do you sleep
I know you do and I'm not surprised
While your ego keeps you warm
It's burning
All the bridges that you start

We tried
Oh, we tried
What goes around comes around
Now it's right back here to haunt you

We tried
(I earned my wings teaching guys like you)
Oh, we tried
(To keep your mouth shut, so keep your mouth shut)
Now you lost what I found
But I'm right back here to haunt you

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
And now I'm right back here

You're so transparent
I see straight through your empty chest
And spineless back
I've seen enough not to trust
I think enough is enough

You got too close
You know I'm terrible
At keeping track of sleep
It always seems to sneak away
Along with wolves like you
Dressed as counting sheep

We tried
Oh, we tried
(I kept my mouth shut, I kept my mouth shut)
What goes around comes around
Now it's right back here to haunt you

We tried
(I earned my wings teaching guys like you)
Oh, we tried
(To keep your mouth shut, so keep your mouth shut)
Now you lost what I found
But I'm right back here to haunt you

Hey!

It always seems to slip away
I'm taking back what is mine
What is left is here to haunt you
(Hey!)
It always seems to slip away

Don't even know what you lost
But I hope this will remind you
You can never be honest
Remind you
Not the first or the last
I promise

We tried
Oh, we tried
(I kept my mouth shut, I kept my mouth shut)
What goes around comes around
Now it's right back here to haunt you

We tried
(I earned my wings teaching guys like you)
Oh, we tried
(To keep your mouth shut, so keep your mouth shut)
Now you lost what I found
But I'm right back here to haunt you

Oh oh oh oh
Now I'm right back here
Oh oh oh oh
And now I'm right back here to haunt you

    My InterpretationI feel after watching the video for this song that it's about a relationship that's potentially either breaking down or Tay finding out maybe her lover has cheated or something.
    Evidently I don't know the true meaning but my interpretation that it would be about the breakdown of a relationship and her finding out that hes cheated with it saying "now it's right back here to haunt you"
    maybe she didn't find out until a while after the cheating finished but then Tay found out and she's saying that its back to haunt him
