She invites me to a closet, the night glows in her eyes
And I know now what she wanted, she'd been hinting it all this time
And I don't mean to scare you but I've wanted this for so long
To have you forever, and she kissed me and said
This is the way we communicate in the dark
This is the way we communicate in the dark
It's just the way we communicate.
It's just the way we communicate.
She told she told she told she told she told everyone but it didn't happen
She told she told she told she told she told everything and it finally happened
She told she told she told she told she told everyone but it didn't happen
She told, well I knew that you would be around
Not so fast, is there anything I can do to keep you here tonight?
She told she told she told she told she told everything and it finally happened
She told, well I didn't think twice about asking her
Because I'd heard the lies so many times
I'm starting to believe that they are true

She was searching for attention
She told everyone but me
And I thought that she'd forgotten
Hey, well, I guess it couldn't be
And then finally one day she built up the lust to ask me the question
"Is this real or just..."
It's just the way we communicate in the dark
It's just the way we communicate in the dark
It's just the way we communicate.
It's just the way we communicate.

She told she told she told she told she told everyone but it didn't happen
She told she told she told she told she told everything and it finally happened
She told she told she told she told she told everyone but it didn't happen
She told, well I knew that you would be around
Not so fast, is there anything I can do to keep you here tonight?
She told she told she told she told she told everything and it finally happened
She told, well I didn't think twice about asking her
Because I'd heard the lies so many times
I'm starting to believe that they are true.

    General Commentwait... is connor MAIN vocals, or does he sing along in parts of this song while an other guy sings the main part? When he sings, his voice totally overpowers the other singers.

    General CommentConor isn't main vocals in Park Ave. the main singing is done by a girl. he just does backup in some of the songs, he's on drums.

    General CommentYeah, hes just main vocals on THIS song
    Basically, all of the members did vocals in their music
    But, most of the lead vocals were done by females

    General Commentyeah, conor did mainly singing along, clark from the faint did she teaches art and she's an actress and maybe i'm forgetting some songs, but mostly otherwise they do backup vocals, neely does a lot of singing, there was some other girl, jenn, who did singing, too, and jamie, jamie also tapped in lachrymose, obsequious, vehement, elated. wow i'm such a dork. and i'm not even really into that many omaha things...just tilly, bright eyes, the faint...and park ave, of course. so everyone but jenn was in one of those, so i can give figure out who's singing what, basically. but i can't tell between jenn and jamie, because i don't know what either of their voices sound like.
