"Damage" as written by and Jamie Norris Dave Bassett....
Not much Friday night, pinball, Lower East Side
Walked out of the past and into the bar
I used to think about you all the time
I would think about you all the time
Now it just feels weird, that there you are
The damage is done

Feeling like a kid again, my eyes are glued to the floor
I hope I mumbled goodbye as you walked out the door
The damage is done

    General CommentA great song about running into your ex, whom things ended shaky with, and realizing things will never be quite the same between you two again. Both the friendship and relationship is over...the damage is done.

    General CommentIt's crazy how someone can be such a big part of your life and then suddenly they're not a part of it at all. The swirilling guitars really express the surreal aspect of the scene. The song makes it seem like contour is just a blur. Great tune.

    General CommentThis song is done so well, I think anyone can relate to it even if they have never experienced it. It paints a very vivid image for so few words. And it captures that empty feeling of not having much to do on the weekend after a breakup, and the awkwardness of running into someone you once dated in another social situation. As someone else commented, it does this with the music as well as the lyrics.

    General CommentThis song is so incredibly powerful to me. It's about that feeling where you love someone so much, and then all of the sudden they aren't apart of your life anymore, and soon you don't think about them at all. This is a good thing, because you've moved past the pain of a broken heart, but it's also very sad, because that love didn't survive. The tone makes me think this song is all about the sad part. You don't wanna be in pain anymore but you wish it just could've worked out in the beginning.
