"Something Of Value" as written by and Warren Myers Cooke Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
All that I need to hear from you
something of value but something untrue
All that I wished that I'd find within you

See how what she wanted and she needed
Tore it all down in the end
Some how like a sickness she infects me
She's simple but deadly my friend

All that I needed to hear from you
Something of value but something untrue
All that I wished that I'd find within you
Stings when I see all the ways that you

Took me for granted and told me it's through
Picked from my pockets and smiled
Empty is nothing and nothing is you
Think I'll just sit for a while

See how what I wanted and I needed
It wasn't enough in the end
somehow with a quickness I forgot her
I realized she wasn't my friend

    General CommentI love this song... I love how the song goes through the realization of how shitty this girl is. How she took him for granted and then he finally realized it. Its so great, I love it :-)

    General CommentI love this song. I love the lyrics! Especailly "All that I need to hear from you / something of value but something untrue" It's so true. Like when you love someone and they sont love you, you want them to say the same to you even though it's not true. God these r such gr8 lyrics. Yellowcard's CD kicks ass and it's by fare the best eva! I can't wait till their EP comes out Mid Summa! HeHe!:);):D

    General CommentI hafta agree with YellowcardXChick about the lyrics "All that I needed to hear from you/Something of value but something untrue". It's so true, sometimes you doubt if the person you're with loves you and you just want them to say it. You don't care if they don't mean it, you just want to hear them say it.

    General CommentThe song is about feeling love towards another person. The significant other doesn't return his feelings, but only uses them to her advantage so she can have what she wants. This song is pretty nice live. It gives the crowd a chance to breathe and break out the lighters.

    General Commentman i love this song so much! i agree with grnpunkerchic about this song. its exacly the same with me but swiched so all the girl parts are about a guy. my boyfriend and i just broke up today and this is how i feel about the whole thing. disaster by home grown hits the spot as well on how i feel. "u were everything thing that i dreamed of, i never thought id hear u say that u'd falling out of love, i never said this would be easy, you said you'd understand, now your giving up everything its just not fair." but my ex and i are still friends and i think we will be best as friends! oh yes! yellowcard is gonna be in my town portland oregon on april 8th at the cyrstal ball room! I CANT WAIT!!! its gonna be the best night of my life ever! i love yellowcard!!!

    General Commentto me this song is describes a type of relationship that everyone has at some point in life. all you ever wanted to gain from the relationship was a sense that the feeling of concern for the person is mutual, but you are always aware that it isn't. also, as much as we complain about them, in the end something in them still attracts to be their friend or lover. and what hurts most in the end is knowing that you've been lying to yourself, and ultimatley you've got know one to blame but yourself.
