i'm sick of smiling
and so is my jaw
can't you see my front is crumbling down
i'm sick of being someone i'm not
please get me out of this slump
i'm sick of clapping
when i know i can do it better for myself
i'm sick of waiting
sick of all these words that will never matter

i'll wire these nerves together
hoping for a chance to think on time
and i'm tracing over your letter
to see if your intentions are as good as mine

but you're
getting worse
i swear it
its hard to prove you're an understatement
you're getting worse
and i know
that you'll be calling
calling, calling me again

i'm done with everything
that had the two of you
don't worry your pictures are already burned
i'm done with new friends
don't sell yourself short
you'll lose it in the end

i'll wire these nerves together
hoping for a chance to think on time
and i'm tracing over your letter
to see if your intentions are as good as mine

but you're
getting worse
i swear it
its hard to prove you're an understatement
you're getting worse
and i know
that you'll be calling
calling, calling me again

i can't help how i feel
no i can't help how i feel

but you're
getting worse
i swear it
its hard to prove you're an understatement
you're getting worse
and i know
that you'll be calling
calling, calling me again

calling me again
calling me again

but you're
getting worse
i swear it
its hard to prove you're an understatement
you're getting worse
and i know
that you'll be calling
calling, calling me again

    General CommentThank you very much for ACTUALLY TAKING THE TIME TO TYPE OUT THESE LYRICS...Dude, I don't mind people using the lyrics I typed up (thats why i do it in the first place), but me and the other two or three people who contributed the S&S lyrics worked really hard to transcribe them. All these S&S songs are the exact same lyric transcriptions from the "A New Found Glory" group section which me and about three other people typed up. Was this really necessary just to move them to "New Found Glory" and take the contribution credit for yourself?

    General Commentok, I was a bit too hypocritical in my last post, i'm sorry. I'll admit that I have taken lyrics from various other places and put them on here. Also all the lyrics I type out can be freely used by anyone (Modern Rock Lyrics took the two songs I posted here from On A Wire) But is it really neccesary to duplicate songs that are already on the site? All the stuff i've taken from places weren't on the site yet.

    General Commentit isnt like you win a million dollars for typing up the lyrics. people just moved the lyrics to the correct group name coz the band is no longer named "a new found glory" . they were only helping.

    General CommentUm no if u actually like new found glory u should know they go by new found glory . There name used to me A new found glory but when the released cds stupid people would classiy em under "A" instead on "new". so the switched it for us fans so we could find the cds and help support NFG.

    General Commenti found out about the band when they were "A New Found Glory", and thats the way I will always refer to them. And if you like aNFG, you know that their stuff was better when they were called "A New Found Glory".
