Doing nothing right
What could I have done tonight
To make everything feel so good?

Another night gone by
Another dream cut into the sky
I can't see your big brown eyes through mine anymore

Remember the flowers I picked for you from your best friend's backyard
You said that you'd never let them die
And like a rose this love has thorns
The ones that pierce my soul
She said she'd never let hers die

Just one thing that you should know
This time I'll let you go

    General CommentI like tacos a lot. Sometimes when I go to taco bell, I will get 4 or 5 tacos and enjoy them right there and then, or I might save them for later. I also drink soda a lot. P.S. I am single, ladies.

    truely amazing. the new cd isnt the same though. ian's voice is different...kinda like they're trying to be like every other band out there. but i still love them. they're still one of my favorite bands.... 8/10! i cant wait!

    General CommentActually, I don't love this song. I hate this song. In fact, I know a lot of people who hate this song. Sorry. I always feel compelled to shoot down generalizations and inaccurate assumptions and answer such rhetorical questions like, "Who doesn't love this song?" with adverse answers that conflict with the inquisitor's point/meaning. Something about senseless aureate queries make me want to kill people. I just had to speak against WishICouldForgetYou. Sorry.
    Enjoy your song, though!
