"Logan to Government Center" as written by Jesse Lacey and Brian Lane....
Consider this the letter that I never sent
However inconsiderate it seems
Do you still consider me?
Consider me the boy you laughed with
Or you learned to live without?
I suck
I know I'm late
I know you waited
You wouldn't get me on the phone
And you couldn't make me not alone

The phone bill's are all stacked up
By my bedside
With your picture
Looking surprised
You're what makes
New England so great
My island nights are all spent dying
Wait for summer
To become wrought with lips
(My wishful thinking)

You wouldn't get me on the phone
And you couldn't make me not alone
Yeah you wouldn't get me
You wouldn't get me
You wouldn't get me on the phone

I never thought this day would end
(Never thought this day would end)
I never thought tonight could ever be
This close to me
So let my hands stray
Past the boundaries of your back
And get you breathing
We'll get you started

You wouldn't get me
You wouldn't get me
You wouldn't get me on the phone
Yeah you wouldn't get me
You wouldn't get me
You could have made me not alone

    General Commentthe train line from logan to government center is the blue line which gives the song title extra significance

    General Commenti believe people are making good connections to this song. itried to find it out my self and got this:
    jesse is in a dead relationship with a girl from boston. it is mostly likely his fault that its dead, but he wants to breath life back into it, and he wants to make sure she is still willing.

    "Consider this a letter that I never sent
    However inconsiderate it seems
    Do you still consider me,
    consider me the boy you laughed with
    or that you learned to live without?... I suck,
    I know I'm late,
    I know you waited"
    -he's sayng this is something they both know, its stupid, and is asking if she remembers him as someone she moved on from, or remembers him as someone she used to have fun with. he knows that he screwed the relationship up and that its a little late to be bringing it up

    "You wouldn't get me on the phone
    And you couldn't make me not alone"
    -she didnt want to hold him down, but couldnt make him move on either

    "My phone bills stacked up by my bedside,
    with your picture, you're looking surprised
    You're what makes New England so great
    My island nights are all spent dying
    Wait for summer to become wrought with lips,
    my wishful thinking"
    -he's remembering how great their relationship was, dreading the wait for summer so he could see her; but that summer it got screwed up

    "Yeah you're a blue eyed lightning bolt
    (Yeah we can be)
    I'm a national phenomenon
    (You wouldn't get me on the phone)
    Nothing's absolutely definite 'til it's absolutely, definitely gone (definitely gone)"
    -he's saying they're both a bit crazy, and their realtionship never really had an 'end' so its not really over yet.

    "I never thought this day would end (never thought this day would end)
    I never thought tonight could ever be this close to me (close to me)
    So let my hands stray past that boundaries of your back
    to get you breathing (get you breathing)
    And get this started (get this started)"
    -he never thought that their relationship would get screwed up, and that he would regret so much, so he wants to start it up again



    the title has already been explained and seems right. boston airport (logan) to government center being the way he got to her. also just a wierd thought, could blue eyed lightning bolt be describing the train that took him to her? the blue line from logan to government center? just a thought 0.o

    General CommentStill workin on whats bein said in the background of these parts...

    "You wouldn't get me on the phone
    And you couldn't make me not alone
    Yeah we can be, yeah we can be
    You wouldn't get me on the phone "

    and...

    "Yeah we can be, yeah we can be
    You wouldn't get me on the phone
    Yeah we can be, yeah we can be
    You couldn't make me not alone"

    If you know what theyre sayin in the background of those 2 parts or just think you might know, then post your ideas. thanx

    General CommentSo it seems to be about a long distance relationship...maybe they met one summer and she lives in Boston and he lives on Long Island. His phone bills are stacked up from calls he made to her, but she doesn't feel the same way about him. The title probably means that he flies (or wants to fly) up to Boston to see her and takes the T from Logan to her stop, Government Center.

    theboohi - I agree about that part...it's awesome.

    General Commentthe word "emo" should be banned, and it's definately without a doubt "great", not "pretty". And this is definately the best song off this CD in my opinion...though the whole CD is great.

    General CommentDo you still consider me,
    consider me the boy you laughed with
    or that you learned to live without?
