"1000 Julys" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
Planning my attack just before you come back around
Maybe I'm wrong but I don't know how to back down
I never fit in, you know I don't belong
But you know that I don't care when you and me are strong
Cause I'm a vampire y'all
We toast the blood of our enemies
You're still scaring me, no, still scaring me, no
And we don't fit in
Wonder what it's like when you're living with someone like me
I'm a freak and I'm nervous when it's easy
Feral days, and I'm sex crazed
I put it in with my animal ways
That's the sign I was born to be living in
I ran around and gave the finger to the Ritalin
You know you calm me down and I can't say why
You say goodbye and burn my eyes
A thousand July's
I hope you find
I'd give you the words, but no words come to mind
But you turn me so cold, so I tell you lies
When you let me in, it's like a thousand Julys
When you left, I felt the drop like a boom
Wintertime all alone in your bedroom
I don't blame you and I know I'm not your friend
How we live, young American
I guess I've always known, I'd be on my own,
I'd be on my own, and I don't know why, I don't know why
A thousand Julys
I know you'll find
I'd say the words, but no words come to mind
But you let me in, and I don't know why
But when you come, it's like a thousand Julys
A thousand Julys
That's what you are
I'd tell you to come back now, but we've gone too far
And we've burned it out now
I don't even try
But I feel you gone
I lost a thousand Julys

    General CommentYes, it's about sex, but it's about the calm and turmoil in relationships as well.

    "And we don't fit in
    Wonder what it's like when you're living with someone like me
    I'm a freak and I'm nervous when it's easy
    Feral days, and I'm sex crazed
    I put it in with my animal ways
    That's the sign I was born to be living in
    I ran around and gave the finger to the Ritalin
    You can calm me down, I can't say why
    You say goodbye, you burn my eyes, you burn my eyes
    A thousand Julys
    I hope you'll find I'd give you the words, but no words come to mind
    But you turn me so cold, so I tell you lies
    When you let me in, it's like a thousand Julys "

    I want to send those lyrics to my boyfriend RIGHT NOW. We're going through a bad patch (and he's just in a bad place too). Although, I'd change the Ritalin part--I want to go back ON it to be calmer for him :P

    General CommentI personally think this song is about sex, and how good that person makes him feel. But I could be wrong. I love this song, too. I love all their songs really.

    General CommentHe feels like he's lost so much time after losing someone. He wants her back but too much has happened and it's no use. Just another good song by 3eb

    General CommentWhen you left for good, I felt the drop like a boom
    Wintertime all alone in your bedroom
    I don't blame you, and I know I'm not your friend
    How we living, young American
    I guess I've always known
    I'd be on my own, I'd be on my own...that has to be the best lyric in the song. This song makes me cry. It's so beautiful. I love it. So sad. It's like he's accepting all the things that he did wrong in a past relationship. He's finally coming to terms with what went wrong and his character flaws, the things he did that he can't deny now, he didn't know he was doing them at the time, he didn't know how it was affecting her. Anyways, that's exactly what I'm going through right now. Self-realization is a biotch. That's what you are
    I'd tell you to come back now, but we've gone to far
    And we've burned it out now
    I don't even try
    But I feel you gone
    I've lost a thousand Julys...that's how it ends.

    General CommentThis song is soooo about sex! Stephan said something like it was dedicated to the female orgasm.
    Stephan-
    "This song is about sex, unbridled lust, and general bad behavior"

    General CommentI think the song is obviously about sex, I mean come on, "when you come it's like a thousand julys"? How much more obvious could it be?
