    General Commenti think these lyrics need some corrections but i just cant figure it out what the missing words are...
    i think its more like
    forgive you, thats what you want
    you roll back and you're wasted, and i'm all torn up
    i bury promise here
    you would come back once your feelings are.. (i have no idea)
    ...when you found me here and not there
    no one here can sing your song
    just stand by the idiots and sing along
    i bet you loved before, when you were a flower on the wall
    i built to block up the bricks i used to ??
    no one there can sing your song
    just stand by the idiots and sing along

    but i'm sure this need some corrections as well :)

    General Commenti really appreciate songs like this,
    not many bands can pull this off, and not sound whiny, but Lagwagon can.

    i think all their harder stuff is Rad, but its impressive when a band makes a series of softer (and i mean this in the most respectful sense) songs, but still doesn't alienate their fan base, or make itself look stupid.

    General CommentHey guys, I'm pretty sure none of you got the lyrics quite right yet. Listen to the acoustic version to hear the words clearly... Here's what I hear:

    Forgive you, if that's what you want. You roll back and your wasted, and I'm all torn up.

    I buried promise here. You would come back once your feeling sorry for all that you were when you found me here in the clear. No one here can sing your song. Just stand by the idiots and sing along.

    I've let you love before, when you were a flower on the wall I built to block out the drapes I used to need. But no one here can sing my (your) song. Just stand by the idiots and sing along.

    The song's meaning seems pretty obvious to me. He's talking to a friend, possibly himself, that has withdrawn from those around them. The cause of their suffering isn't made clear which makes the meaning pretty flexible. It means different things to me at different times, but in the end Joey tells us to buck-up. You've loved before, you can do it again. Just pretend to enjoy the people you've been hiding from and eventually you'll realize life is not so bleak.
