"Late Bloomer" as written by Greggory A. Attonito, Bryan T. Kienlen, Peter William Steinkopf and Michael H. Mcdermott....
I saw you walking past me just the other day
Another heartbeat with thoughts of yesterday
You looked the same, years are only time
I still wonder why our hearts could never rhyme

You stood beside me, you didn't recognize me
Funny how things never change
When you walked on by a memory surprised me
Smoking cigarettes, your girlfriends by the pool
Your smell I could not forget, that's as close as I could get
You were so f***ing cool

I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?
I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?

All I wanted was a piece of your heart
You left me torn apart
F*** the rest before me and their crimes
For your love I'll serve their time

I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?
I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?

I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?
I'm no good, you're no better
Wouldn't we be perfect together?

I’m no good, you’re no better
I’m no good, you’re no better
I’m no good, you’re no better

    General CommentThis song is about me! Most definitely! I was obsessed with a friend of my cousin's, but he didn't know who the hell I was. He ignored me all the time, but I just wanted to be with him. I knew he wasn't worth my time since he didn't even bother with me, but I was no better since I still liked him even though he was an asshole. So, that's that. That's what this song is.

    General CommentThis song's about everyone's high school crush. The girl you didn't get. Mine was this girl named Erin. Sat beside her in Gr. 9 science. Its about the one crush that never goes away, because so its innocent and reminds you of a time when things were simpler.
    The song is also about how the guy realizes the girl is a lot like him, but she tries to be different and hang with different crowds. He just wants he to accept who she is and be with him. "I'm no good, you're not better, wouldn't be perfect togerther?"

    General CommentThis song's about a guy's girlfriend from highschool he sees. He remembers how much he loved her. "Your smell I could not forget, that's as close as I could get you were so fucking cool. " When he said that's as close as I could get, I think he's talking about when he sees her on the street and he could only get close enough to smell her.

    mine's natalya, by the way. :\

    General CommentThis song is awesome, one of my favorite Souls songs. It is very emotional, without being "emo"(whatever that means these days) The part that gets me the most is the "your smell I could not forget" cause I know what thats like. Any song that can make you feel an emotion, is a great song.

    General Comment"Fuck the rest before me and their crimes, for your love I'll serve their time " that line kills me, I liked a girl and all her previous boyfriends were immature idiots who treated her like shit... ie they wanted to have lan parties rather then celebrate her birthday. No matter how different i am from her exes she still has fear in her heart.. well thats how I take the line girl wont date guy cause she is sick of being treated like shit

    General CommentThis song isn't about a crush, or some simple relationship. Its about a deep relationship that just couldn't work out no matter how hard he tried.

    I saw you walking past me just the other day, another heartbeat with thoughts of yesterday
    -
    It took him so long to forget about her, that it all came back in a heartbeat when he see's her years later.


    You looked the same, years are only time, I still wonder why our hearts could never rhyme.
    -
    He is wondering why they could never be together, why they worked so well but in the end their feelings could never be the same, she could never love him the way he loved her, their hearts could never rhyme.


    You stood beside me, you didn't recognize me, funny how things never change.
    -
    She couldn't see him for all that he was, she never could.


    And when you walked on by a memory surprised me, smoking cigarettes, your girlfriends by the pool.
    -
    Even with all the pain she caused him, all the heart breaking she did to him, and all the time he spent in pain getting over her, he still holds all the good times they had close to him.


    Your smell I could not forget, that's as close as I could get, you were so fucking cool.
    -
    Her smell was the same as it was when she was with him, and its as close as he could ever get, but she was the coolest girlfriend, and bestfriend, that he ever had.


    I'm no good, you're no better, wouldn't we be perfect together?
    -
    What she did to him was no better than his attitude in the relationship, it took him until the end of their relationship to realize how he was, but then he found out things about her that made him realize she wasn't the same as he thought she was either, but he still wants to be with her anyway.


    All I wanted was a piece of your heart, you left me torn apart.
    -
    All he wanted was to be with her, and take care of her, and give her everything and make her his whole life, but she left him anyway, wanting other things and having other desires.


    Fuck the rest before me and their crimes, for your love I'll serve their time
    -
    He doesn't care about all the other guys before him, he would gladly and most willingly stay with her and work with all her problems that the other men created in her and take care of her and be there for her and show her how much he cares and that all guys aren't the same.


    I'm no good, you're no better, wouldn't we be perfect together?
    -
    No matter what, through all the pain she put him through, all the memories, and time spent together, though everything, all she did to him, he'd still take her back in a heartbeat.



    I don't know if thats what it means to you, but its what it means to me and I just went through all of it, I hope none of you have to either, but it probably will happen.

    I'm only 16, but I know what love is, and I know it was love because I'd still do anything to be with her even after all thats happend, even though we never can be together because she wants other things.

    What I wrote might not be what it means to you, but whatever it means, its about people that were so in love in the beginning, but it was all taken away.

    No matter how sure about something you are, it can always get really, really fucked up.
