Been on top of the world since about six months ago
Marking the first time I laid eyes on you
I lost all train of thought as I entered the room
Saw what looked like really good food then I saw you
And so did you

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve of your clavicle
Your clavicle

Been on top of the world since about one week ago
Marking the first time I felt numb enough to talk to you
I lost all train of thought as your eyes met mine
Told you I thought you were gorgeous
You gave me your phone number, I gave you mine
Before you left I said that you can bet
I'll be bothering you soon
You said "No bother, please do"

I've called you twice
It's been a hellish fight
To not think about you all the time
Sitting around waiting for your call

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve of your clavicle
Your clavicle

I want to wake up naked next to you
Kissing the curve of your clavicle

    General CommentSee, i see it differently. I think this song, you can take it all at face value. He sees this girl, and completely falls nose over tail for her, and drinks enough to finally get the marbles to go talk to her. He got her phone number, and compulsivly called her twice, but notice she never called back, and its been a hellish fight while sitting around waitin for her call. It never came. He still wants her badly, but its not happening. I love the trio, and sometimes, they just capture the feelin of a heart broken guy perfectly, and put that dark pull on it, the dark pull that we really feel sometimes, but never tell anyone. RAWK! Peace grease.

    General CommentThe song's self explanatory but we never find out whether she actually does call him back or if she never does and doesn't care. She seems quite enthusiastic when he's talking to her. So who knows?
    :crazy:

    General CommentThis song is really cool I think, and I don't think it is as negative as people seem to think...When it says "Before you left I said that you can bet I'll be bothering you soon
    You said 'No bother, please do'" Makes it sound like things are peachy-keen, and when it talks about the hellish fight, I think even a relationship with mutual attraction can still be hard, waiting for the girl to call and everything. It doesn't really say she never called, and I think the whole clavicle kissing thing is pretty awesome, it's the little things that seem to matter most. Seems to me more of a song about things to come, instead of a song about wishing for what will never be. But I guess it's open to interpretation, so different people can get different meanings out of it. It's a nice song.

    General CommentI think that part of the skin is called the cuticle, and the clavicle is like, where the collar bone is.

    General Commentwhoah people i REALLY do not understand this whole discussion in here! (ok- i admit i'm kinda late, but hey shit happens). first of all... this isn't a place to talk about bands selling out, here it is all about the MUSIC, the song itself. whatever the fucking band does does not matter at the moment! of course it' shitty, of course we would all prefer other things!!! but aren't you glad that by that way the music WE like will also get to other ppl? open their eyes, enlarge their perception of the REAL world? and if they don't get what it's really about- too bad. in that case, we are always there- the people with open eyes who really do understand what it's all about and the ppl who love the band for the music, not the cute little haircuts they got the other day... or do we only like the band cuz no1 else likes them? i hope that's not the way it is. GOOD MUSIC MUST SURVIVE!

    General CommentOMFG NickmanHWM that is the friggin 5th time I have read your ramblings about Alkaline Trio selling out...and by now no one fucking cares. First off do you even know what the meaning of selling out is?! No it's not appearing on MTV to make more money that's called making a living. Selling out is when you change your music style and how you sound to appeal to more fans, that's selling out, and last time I checked Alkaline Trio still rocks hardcore on the new CD Good Mourning and the old fans still love them as much as any new fans. Think about this...Blink 182, they sold out back when the CD Enema of the State was released. You can hear a blatant difference between the sound of it and Dude Ranch which was in my opinion one of their best CD's. But wait...didn't Blink 182 start going mainstream when Dude Ranch came out, yeah that's right it's because the needed money. They didn't want to stay an underground band and have no one know about them all their life. They sold out when Enema of the State appeared because the sound of the music changed and it appealed to more fans. In my opinion Good Mourning by Alk3 is a sweet album and competes to any of their other albums. So stop acting like your 'punk' and calling every band that appears on MTV a sellout. I really don't think Alkaline Trio has multiple jobs other then the band so obviously they need to make money off of it and as much money as they can....-_- just my two cents since no one else seems to want to defend Alk3 to his ramblings...I'm done...

    General Commentthis is a great song, i think anyone can relate to it...beautiful.......

    i agree with mechspike...its about music..not mtv....i don't see why it matters how many people listen to a band or who listens to them, as long as they're listened to...its their job, its what they live off of....and they didn't completely change the sound of their music, like other bands have
