I'm hoping to be remembered as a smiling face,
Not this train-wreck that has quickly taken my place,
Oh no, Please don't, tell me that it's over,
My heart and knees aren't ready to fall apart,

I saw a reflection of myself from sunlight
And he said, you know, you know, it's not going to be alright, (I know)
Sometimes I'd wish he'd lie and say, everything's going to be okay,
And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away

And at night the street-lights come alive,
And I just want to get in my car and drive
Passing cars on the highway, counting headlights,
And a part of me feels that it might be alright
(But not tonight)

I saw a reflection of myself from sunlight
And he said, you know, you know, it's not going to be alright, (I know)
Sometimes I'd wish he'd lie and say, everything's going to be okay,
And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away

Why does it always rain on me?
Why does it always rain on me?
Why do you always rain on me?
Why do you always rain on me?
Why does it always rain on me?
Why do you always rain on me?

I saw a reflection of myself from sunlight
And he said, you know, you know, it's not going to be alright, (I know)
Sometimes I'd wish he'd lie and say, everything's going to be okay,
And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away

And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away
And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away
And a warm sun's gonna come, and thaw my frozen heart,
away.

    General Comment"I'm hoping to be remembered as a smiling face, Not this train-wreck that has quickly taken my place,"

    "Remember me as a smiling face, not this fucking wreck thats taken its place" - No lies, just love


    "And he said, you know, you know, it's not going to be alright, (I know), Sometimes I'd wish he'd lie and say, everything's going to be okay,"

    "So if there is a perfect spring that�s waiting somewhere, Just take me there and lie to me and say it�s going to be all right, It's going to be all right, yeah, you worry too much, kid , It's going to be all right" - If winter ends


    "And a warm sun's gonna come and thaw my frozen heart away"

    "And though spring, it did come slowly, I guess it did it's part, My heart has thawed and continues to beat" - June on the west coast

    And thats pretty much the whole song except for the "why does it always rain on me" part which is a rip off of another song by another band. Theyve ripped off Bright Eyes in other songs too. Its not even subtle. They should learn to write their own songs, cos if they get famous from these songs they'll probably be sued for plagourism.
