Stress can breed a psychopath
You’re all that calms me down
I forget that I’m a mess when you’re around
Please can you be home tonight
Say its not over yet
My human tranquilizer
My pretty percocet
I just want to chill with you tonight, girl
I wish that I could chill with you tonight
Stop the worries that keep forming in my head
I’ve got ants in my pants unless its you in them instead
Oh baby I was a faker before you
Tomorrow brings a busy day
Its overstuffed with time
I need to hear you breathing on the line
And you can be closed minded
If you have open arms
Why can’t I ever work my wily charms on you?
And you still weren’t home when I dialed up the phone in the evening
So I’m twiddling thumbs and I’m wondering what’s this I’m feeling
I may be strong below the belt
But not with what I thought and felt
That blissful knight I knelt
Between your legs
Between our heads
Between our hearts
I was a faker before you.

    General Commentgreat song

    i really think it's just about finding "the one" and when you find them you want them sexually and emotionally so of course the two will be mixed in the song
    "Tomorrow brings a busy day
    Its overstuffed with time
    I need to hear you breathing on the line
    And you can be closed minded
    If you have open arms"
    that is my favorite line i can totally relate
    i know what it is like to know you've got such a huge day the next day but just wanting to be with the one you like no matter if it takes away your sleep or not...you dont even care wat they say its just being with them thus the line "you can be close minded if you have open arms"

    god its like max reads my mind with every song
    anyone else get that?

    i think this line sums up the entire song. we all just want someone who understands us and takes are mind off of everything else.

    General CommentThink it's about faking emotions before finding a girl he loved when all he really had before in a relationship was sex. Hence the 'I was a faker before you'. Old Say Anything songs are completely underrated, this song is great

    My OpinionI sincerely doubt that Max's flawless taste has not been sullied by hooking up with a Twilight fangirl. You should feel mildly special though Izzy, I signed up for this site just to comment on your horrible name.

    General CommentI love this song. I thin it's just about finding someone you really like and need to be with them all the time.

    Maybe he was pretending to be someone else and this girl brought out the real him? Just a guess...

    General Comment"I was a faker" (not fake), meaning he'd never felt love before her, he'd thought it was love, but this time it was real. The way he says it though, it doesnt seem too sincere, it seems like its just a line he's feeding. the whole song seems very post-facto, like shes gone and he knows it, its just an afterthought

    General Comment"my pretty percoset"

    i love that line.


    i think this song is about a guy who's obsessed with having sex with some girl, and she's ignoring him.
