Oh great
here I go again I'm stuck in this rut
and I'm not sure how to begin- should I tell you everything?
I'm feeling out of luck so I won't see you soon
'cause I know it's too soon for you to see me-
if this is the last thing you do just tell me that it's o.k. for me to have these feelings for you
and that it's normal to want to call you.
Oh I'm dialing the phone and I'm letting it ring for hours and I'm pretending to hear your voice-
Why does my heart always beat before yours does?
After a while you can make yourself believe in almost anything,
so I'm making myself believe in you.

    General Commentoh my god this song is unreal. i don't think that i have ever related with a song more than this one. chris just has this uncanny ability to write truly magnificent songs that are way to true. this has to be one of my favorite saves the day songs. i love it. if you haven't heard this song you need to check it out.

    General CommentI could listen to this song on repeat all day. I love when he asks "why does my heart always beat before yours does?" because I feel like that so often.

    General Commentthis is definitely the best STD song. i relate to everything, i've felt this way so much, i even sang it for this thing called song sharing at my school that we do at the beginning of the year. I picked this song cuz it was the best song and i connected so well, the song sharing thing is supposed to open everybody up and make us more comfortable, this year it was amazing.. sharing this incredible Savestheday song made me so vulnerable yet so free because i want everybody to understand that i've felt that way and its a part of me..these incredible emotions

    General CommentThis is a sad song about a guy who can't get over this girl and he calls her but she's not there anymore. But the last 2 lines lets us know that chris won't give up on her.

    General Commentwowzers. its hard when you have a best friend you have feelings for. and seeing them everyday and talking to them everyday just makes your heart hurt cuz you cant quite tell them how you feel. you pretend they feel they same. but in reality they dont. and that hurts too. man i can totally relate to this song. the only thing is "i'm feeling out of luck so i wont see you soon" .

    General Commentthis song is something i can relate to so much. i love it when he asks "why does my heart always beat before yours does?" when i first heard this song that part pulled me in the song because ive never heard someone say something so true.
