"But The Regrets Are Killing Me" as written by Steven Joseph Lamos, Stephen Michael Holmes and Michael Thomas Kinsella....
Fools leave too soon
Built to fill roles and fall
Standing alone again
Distant and dissatisfied

These four years
And how we say goodbye to these four years
A long goodbye with mixed emotions
Just fragments of another life

I'm not dead yet
But the regrets are killing me

    General Commenti dont know why i like this song so much.. when i read the lyrics it reminds me too much of him singing of getting out of highschool or some shit. but just hearing the regrets are killing me can be so diverse to many situations making this song an anthem for any regret ever felt. its great.

    General CommentThat's really quite unfortunate, UnderTheseLights, because I'm sure that he was just hanging on your being convinced that he has emotional ties to this song.
    Live and let live, man, it's a testament as it is that any of us care enough to actually come here and post a comment. We each display our affections in a different manner.
    And yeah, I can see the highschool connotations, being on the brink of graduation, myself. I'd think, rather, that it has something to due with interaction he had with a female...as much as I hate to derive my synopsis from a tired "EMO" subject such as that. Great song, nonetheless. Owen is sufficiently capable of filling the void now, though.

    General Commentim pretty sure it is about getting out of high school. and the regrets that are killing him are the ones that he has made over the past 4 years.

    General Commenthmmm, that would work really well, but i think it's a long relationship. every song is about relation ships.

    General Commenti love the way the vocals draw out "mixed emotions". gives me chills. there is some great guitar work in this one as well.

    General CommentWow just busted this album out again recently, and this track really hit home. Four years ago, back in high school I ended up being great friends with this girl, and I never told her how I felt about her. I've regretted it ever since...

    General Commentthat life died when i we grew up, it took four years... we're not dead... but it did kill a part of us, and could i have done something to avoid this fate? something? anything? regrets (of you and me) which isn't written up there, are killing me. they killed a part of both of us.
