He likes to act like he's all grown up
He wanted to grow up to be an actor
But he never told anybody
He likes to spill all of his guts
On the top of a well stocked bar
And then swallow them bit by bit by remembering every scar
It's a valid reason for every drink
And a new tattoo is a new reason to think

He likes to pretend that he's all sewn up
It makes for a much stronger case
But there is blood underneath that skin
That scar is not so easy to erase
He walks with a glass cane now
He's careful when holding his body up straight
Can't go outside anymore when it's raining
Can't smash up that beautiful face
Another innocent girl just made his list
That self pity shit is just too hard to resist

Yeah when we get home you'll see
That this part of him is now part of me

He likes to act like he's all grown up
He wanted to grow up to be an actor
But he never told anybody
He likes to spill all of his guts
On the top of a well stocked bar
And then swallow them bit by bit by remembering every scar

It's a valid reason for every drink
And a new tattoo is a new reason to think

Yeah when we get home you'll see
That this part of him is now part of me

And its way too easy to fake this smile lead you on
Maybe I'm wrong but everyone gets bored once in a while

    General Commenti love this song. the vocals totally grabbed at my heart. as for meaning loserdork up there pretty much nailed it. i love the lines:
    "He likes to pretend that he is all sewn up
    It makes for a much stronger case
    But there is blood underneath that skin
    That scar is not so easy to erase"

    he's tryin to fool everyone, including himself and forget the past. pretty relatable.
