I couldn't hear a word you said
I couldn't hear at all
You talked until your tongue fell out
And then you talked some more
I knew if I turned
I'd turn away from you
And I couldn't look back

Tell yourself we'll start again
Tell yourself it's not the end
Tell yourself it couldn't happen
Not this way
Not today

    General Commentthe intro to this song far surpasses the cure's...the bass is much faster and the organ really freaks me out. i think its a great cover of an awesome song.

    General CommentI disagree whole heartedlly about that 'poor' statement, Pretty In Punk. Even if alkaline trio tried, they couldn't produce anything poor. Rock on, kids.

    General CommentI do like the song, although I am saddened to admit that alkaline trio does in fact have a poor song . . . this is not it however. It's sleepyhead from maybe I'll catch fire.

    General Commentthis song wakes me in my dreams.

    well not really, but it's completely rad, and the alkaline trio is one of the better bands these days. they are wonderful.

    and i, too, have also never heard a bad alkaline trio song, and i doubt that i ever will.
