You little creep, That's what she said, these quotes from your mother, get better every day.
And you'll be nothing, just like your father, at least that's what the kids at school say.

And Jamie spent her Christmas at the Airport, She said planes made her feel like she could get away. And I spent Christmas in a detox ward, I wish I had an Airport...Someday...Cause somedays are just so hard

And we hung like space stations and rocketships
And dreamed like we were things of the sky
We dressed like kings and queens and lovers
And shouted out into the night "we're never gonna die"
And I've waited here for hours, hoping that you'd call
And my dialing finger's tired, and your machine is full
And I've taken 18 showers just to pass the time
And that fucking phone just rang, but it wasn't you on the line.
(And you don't seem to mind)

And it was New Year's Eve, but I was thinking of the summer, knowing that at midnight you wouldn't be around. And they say children make the greatest soldiers, they do just like they're told, and take up less space on the ground. And it seems to me that we'd been here before

Where were you when I was at the airport,
where were you when i wanted to fly
Tell me where you were when i was at the airport, these planes fall from the sky.

And I wish I had an airport, somedays
Cause some days are just so hard.

    General CommentI think it's talking about him wanting to get away from his problems. He says "'Cause some days are just so hard". It also has something to do with a failed relationship, and her lack of being there. I think he wants to go, and now that he does, she doesn't. I'm not sure, it's shady.

    General Commenti think it's talking about the girl having a way to get away and he wants to have a way to get away and when he tries to get away from life with her... she doesn't want to..

    General CommentI LOVE THIS BAND! They are soooo awesome! this song is really good, like the rest of their stuff. I think it's about him and his highschool girlfriend, Kelly, and the trials they've been through, and how ahrd it's been on them.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome. Those last words he says, when he says "Cause some days are just so hard" it kills me inside. What an awesome song, so powerful, and uplifting.
