"You're Having the Time of My Life" as written by and Nick Dresti....
when you become a stranger again
how closed your eyes will be
narrowing me to three short feet
across a room of drunken revelry

you're having the time of my life
and i love you much too late
there are things id like

when you say my name to me
like some amusing piece of food between your teeth
then i will know that its completely over
won't you say my name to me

you're having the time of my life
and i think you got it right
its an envy making green
says your eyes only see me

if i had another last chance
and we met again for the first time

i would listen to your heart
i would start back at the start
there are things id like to say
so many things id like to change

    General Commentthis song is about breaking up with somebody and then realizing "oops, I shouldn't have done that" long after you should have realized it.

    General CommentFirst of all, I love Blake Schwarzenbach, Jawbreaker, AND Jets To Brazil. Second, this is the best song on JTB's second album, "Four Cornered Nights." Third, impossibledreamer is WRONG! This song is by Jets To Brazil, NOT Jawbreaker. Both bands have the same lead singer, but Jawbreaker broke up a long time ago. I just wanted to clear that up.

    General CommentSorry, the first Jawbreaker mp3 I got was ' you're having the time of my life ' and it must have been titled wrongly. I don't have 4 cornered night, just Perfecting loneliness and a bunch of mp3s. I know that Blake sings for both bands... SOO SORRY...

    General Commentyup so am i the only one who thinks that some of the lyrics up there are wrong? "if i had another last ++dance++" im pretty sure its supposed to be last chance, guess i could be wrong. Anyway sweet song, check out "one summer last fall"

    General CommentI think this is more about screwing up a relationship to the point where she leaves you, not the other way round. I think the second verse sums this up perfectly:

    "when you say my name to me
    like some amusing piece of food between your teeth
    then i will know what it's completely over
    won't you say my name to me"

    This suggests she is more angry at him than the other way around...

    General CommentYeah some of the lyrics up there are wrong and a few words are missed out in places.

    I've only just signed up how do you go about changing it?
