"MakeDamnSure" as written by and Adam Burbank/mascherino Lazzara....
You've got this new head filled up with smoke
And I've got my veins all tangled close
To the jukebox bars you frequent
The safest place to hide
A long night spent with your most obvious weakness
You start shaking at the thought
you are everything I want
'Cause you are everything I'm not

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

My inarticulate store bought
hangover hobby kit it talks
And it says, "You, oh, you are so cool."
"Scissor shaped across the bed,
You are red, violent red."
You hollow out my hungry eyes
You hollow out my hungry eyes

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
I'll make damn sure
that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me (ever get too far)
You won't ever get too far

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
I just wanna break you down so badly
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

    General Commenti think this song is about an affair. that's why the bar is the safest place to hide, we lay together to close, but not to close, maybe because they have prior commitment with some else, and maybe that's why he wants to break her down so badly because shes so much more interesting then his old lady. Im gonna make damn sure you wont ever leave, could mean he is going to be very discreet so it wont ever end. I think
