"Ten Minutes" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
Ten minutes to downtown
Is ten minutes too far?
When my friends all say I'm crazy
Maybe I'm being selfish
Maybe I'm just scared

Don't be gone when I get home, I need you there

If I had to explain it
I wouldn't know where to start
It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

Ten minutes to downtown
Is ten minutes too far?
When my heart is saying you're crazy
Maybe things are getting better
Maybe things aren't so bad

Don't be gone when I get home, you're all I have

If I had to explain it
I wouldn't know where to start
It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

Pockets empty
How can you tell me that everything will work out?
A pointless fight
When you're always right and everything will work out
It works out

Sometimes I miss you more
Whenever I'm at home
I've been home all summer
Now I'm leaving you alone

Pockets empty
How can you tell me that everything will work out?
A pointless fight
When you're always right and everything will work out
Everything will work out
Everything will work out

    General Commentwow. i can't believe that nobody has commented on this song. matthew pryor outdid himself on this song. this has to be the best 'get up kids' song that i have ever heard. it is so sad, desprictive, heartfelt and plainly amazing. the whole song is the story of my life, well kinda. but none the less this song is just flat out awesome. you can hear his pain so clearly when he sings.

    General CommentThe Get-Up Kids are who got me into "emo" in the first place. This is definately an awesome song, and Something To Write Hom About is a great album.

    General Commentmatt pryor didn't write this song, jim suptic did, their voices sound a lot the same, but there is a slight difference
