"You're Bleeding" as written by and Mike Burkett....
You've got the beauty, but that don't mean a thing
A bland reciprocation, but that doesn't bother me
You're happier with lights on underneath a darkened sky
Only in the spotlight can you tell me of your crimes

I understand the situation, but I can't
Seem to understand the motivations you once had
I recall a message I once left behind a screen
I was entranced, when you were never there for me

You're draining, you're draining me I'm not a tub
What ever happened to the girl I used to hold?
I held in such a high regard
Where is the girl who had it all?

I used to think I wasn't worthy of your cause
I used to feel so lucky
Until the day I felt a weakness in my arms
I knew from where it had been coming

You're bleeding, you're bleeding me, I can recall
The passions you once had, where did they go?
I knew a girl who had it all
I know a girl where did she go?

    General CommentAbout a girl he was in love with. He felt so lucky to be with her and stuff. Blah Blah!. But after dating her for awhile she wasn't same girl and became a drain on him, enough that is felt like he was dying and he feels happier without her. He doesn't care how pretty she is or any of that other crap. She is draining!

    Now this a REAL song about girls and how much they suck, Much better than New Found Glory and stuff like that (though I do like New Found Glory). Only Nofx could make a song about a girl like this one!
