Well the scene here he wants her back
He's trying to use the phone
She's hanging up he's given up
He should've known
Looking lost then he wanders off
And tries to sing along to some song he's never heard
But just keeps mouthing all the words

(Chorus)
It gets worse before it's all over
I know I'll get through this somehow
It gets worse before it's all over
Nothing's gonna change her mind for now

Well the scene here he's still alone
Another band goes on in this crowded basement
With too much small talk and lame inside jokes
Feeling useless out of excuses
He should've known to let it go
She said "it's done"
Second chances seem to never come

(Chorus)
Change her mind
For now
Change her mind
It gets worse before it's all over (3X)
Nuthins gonna change her mind for now
After all the bad endings and misunderstandings
All of the late night last hopes and lost time
All that she left for me was only a memory
All I can say is she don't understand me(7X)
Shoulda known all along that she don't understand me
And nuthins gonna change her mind for now
She don't understand me
And I hold and scream over the crowd
She don't understand me

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite less than jake song although i'm really not into ska as much as i used to be anymore. but *shrug* anyway this song is pretty self explanatory. he wants his ex-girl back and she won't give him the time of day, and he realizes that nothing is "gonna change her mind for now" and i really like the "it gets worse before it's all over" lines. rawk. <3 ;)

    General Commenthow sure are you that's it's "hold" and scream over the crowd? what about "hum"? it doesn't make any sence, but i really don't hear hold.

    General Commentthis song makes me go fucking crazy
    the combination of rogers fucking amazing talanted voice
    and chris's hardcore punk scratchy voice
    is one of the best parts about LTJ.

    General Commentim surprised more people havnt commented on this song yet, its fucking killer ska/punk song. any less LTJ song in were roger and chris both sing is always gona be good. the song speaks for it self and i think most guys that have made a mistake with a girl and regret it can relate to it.

    That's damn true. My brother hate's Chris's voice which is stupid because it's awesome. Eh well, he likes Nickelback so his opinion doesn't count.
