we sit alone and talk our problems out
but instead we confused them
and gravity took it all
it used to be we had a grace all our own
and instead we abused it
and gravity took its toll

i want to be the one who's profound
but i can't keep with your pace

total lack of confidence displayed
and i don't think you asked for it
my complaint, my complaint
i still call you the one that got away
and to think i'm the one who let you go
my complaint, my complaint
never had a chance to know

say what you want
but it's a
play on words
to say we're in love
it is a
trait i should have never picked up
but it's a bright way to attract

la dah dah dah dah-dee-dah-dah
la dah dah dah dah-dee-dah-dah
la dah dah dah dah-dee-dah-dah

    General Commenti guess no one heard about this band yet, suckers. i think this is guys from desaparecidos and cursive, something crazy from omaha probably. i think this song is about people saying they are in love to hold the relationship together, then in the process losing the meaning of love in the first place. hope more people start to comment, this band rocks...
