When it all just fits
No more waiting up 'till midnight
To see if he comes home
And it sinks in
Through these holes in your old bed sheets
You might spend your life alone
And you don't want to be alone
no not alone

When you think too much
And you came to another game
Despondent out of touch
And you reach so hard it makes you fall
For these hands that let you go
That shouldn't let you go at all
that shouldnt let you go at all
no not at all

I don't know what its like to be you babe
but from the looks I don't think I want to
and I know I've been hanging on tight
so maybe it just might mean I want you
yeah babe I want you

You know what I mean
When I say that I come from a place that hurts
You fit in my scene
And try to make everything work
You watch me turn green
I come down, yeah but I might never land
You said you'd understand
But you don't want to be there
When it goes down again

bop bop bop bop bop ba da (x6)

Staring at the ceiling
Gives me another feeling
About who you are
And you know I was really thinking
I could be another Lincoln
If I got this far
If I got this far
driving in my car
and Then I started holding on to these I couldn't keep
And the wise ass called me faggot
But I feel more like a creep
and these things creep
I watch them creep
and I dont get no sleep

And I don't know what it's like to take it slow
and from the feel I don't think I want to
no I dont want to
and I now know
And I know that it seems I'm Letting go
And things I know, I know would haunt you
and I don't want to haunt you

You know what I mean
When I say that I come from a place that hurts
You fit in my scene
And try to make everything work
You watch me turn green
I come down, yeah but I might never land
You said you'd understand
But you don't want to be there
When it goes down again

You know what I mean
When I say that I come from a place that hurts
You fit in my scene
And try to make everything work
You watch me turn green
I come down, yeah but I might never land
You said you'd understand
But you don't want to be there
you don't want to be there
you don't want to be there
When it goes down again
when it goes down again

    General CommentGood lord the poetry is too awesome in this song. I'm not a very big fan of bands, but Something Corporate is reviving my faith. The lyrics flow so well and not only that they have such awesome meaning! (me being a finiky poet this really means something) It's got so much meaning and emotion, its like the song's alive. And that means its good. SoCo isnt like all those other bands which'll write shitty lyrics about the most generic topic they can find. U can tell this song has meaning and a story behind it, and that's awesome. The only thing i dont like is that Bop thingy. Its really unnecessary and kinda ruins the mood. Oh well. I can ignore it right?
