got this feeling
when i heard your name the other day
couldn't say it
couldn't make it go away

it's a hard place
can't be friends we can't be enemies
it's just too much
i feel the weight crushing down on my face

the hardest part is things already said
getting better worse i cannot tell
why do good things never wanna stay?
some things you lose, some things you give away

broken pieces
try to make it good again
is it worth it?
will it make me sick today?

it's a dumb song
but i'll write it anyway
it's an old mistake
but we always make it -- why do we?

this time it'll be alright
this time it'll be okay

    General Comment" a bunch of muff munching lesbian clit lickers"?
    Um, Corin is married and has a son from her husband, Janet Is ALSO married to a guy (her bandmate in Quasi). Carrie's the only one who might qualify as a " a muff munching lesbian clit licker". That's why i've always found it strange that they were such lesbian icons. They ARE however AMAZING.

    General CommentI feel this way all the time. I've been so scarred lately and I know this is how I'll feel in a few months. I can see it coming.

    General CommentThis is such a great song. Everything about it is pretty straightforward and basic but it rules nonetheless!

    General CommentNever has a song more accurately said how I felt. Ive written these lyrics down and given them to a couple people...cause I'm a loser. I love this song. *sigh*

    General Commentlove this song it seems to be about a bad breakup, and having mixed feelings, you still love the person but you guy just can't work out no matter how much you try

    General CommentI agree with Dressed2Depress. Jack off Jill's "Strawberry Gashes" also has the line "some things you lose and some things you just give away", but s-k did it first.
