I can't control the world around me getting colder
Plus I got it on me over my shoulder
I'm just grateful for another day
Another chance and I won't
Let it go to waste
Can't control the world around me getting colder
Plus I got it on me over my shoulder
I'm just grateful for another day
Another chance and I won't
Let it go to waste
Now you're here finally got you here
Tell me all your insecurities I'll handle all your fears
Uh
I'm sincere
You'll never shed a tear
I know the world is so grizzly
I have faith that we can bear
In your creek without a paddle
Make you shiver like a rattle
In the bed you're acrobattle
Give me tail without the tattle
Love is like a battle
Getting slaughtered like some chattel
All the people do is chatter
But all the hating do not matter
My love is like a bullet she here hoping I don't go astray
Knocking other down that I know don't even deserve the pain
I'm stuck in my ways
But I can change
Like we running late for church and we like 45 minutes away
It's our time now won't you come around now
I'll put my arms down to put you in my arms now
So what it do
Nothing I won't
Said time is money
Watch me go and spend it all on you
Just
Take your time
Time to unwind
You're mighty fine
Just wine and dine
Get naked
Then take it
Can't let this time be wasted
I can't control the world around me getting colder
Plus I got it on me over my shoulder
I'm just grateful for another day
Another chance and I won't
Let it go to waste
Can't control the world around me getting colder
Plus I got it on me over my shoulder
I'm just grateful for another day
Another chance and I won't
Let it go to waste
Twenty-six and you're still ain't worth a lick
Still living off your momma man you're such a little prick
It's a cold world and you hide under cover
You need to get up get out
And gone and get your shit together
You're pockets itty bitty and you sucking mamma's titties
And I'm not really feeling you're really bout improving
'Stead of chasing ass
Won't you go and find a craft
Then plant a money tree
Make it grow and make it last
Such a waste such a freaking waste
Waste of time waste of space
You can't even save face
The goal is to get stack that paper that you need
Only time to make it rain is when you're watering your seeds
Anything else is completely unneeded
But prepare for a drought if my words are unheeded
Yeah
No doubt no doubt
Prepare for a drought
And watch me make my money sprout
Uh
No handouts you can't borrow
My time is the day before tomorrow
No handouts
You can't borrow
My time
Is the day before tomorrow

    General CommentDon't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind
    Won't let you get us down this time.

    Though I think this part is about a relationship or somethin', or at least saying you don't wanna be messed with. As in: don't hurt me again, cuz you've hurt me before. But overall, I think it's about living your life, making the most of it and just to have fun and all. Like popbaby1 said (:

    General Commenti think this song means like, dont mess with my heart, if you dont give love, dont expect it, you might like what you see, but get used to just seeing it, and im gonna live my life, and get wasted, just have fun

    General CommentI think the chorus of this song is really about seizing the day and making the most of it. She starts out saying "Don't waste it /It's only here for today", and also says "Get wasted on love, get wasted on life, get wasted on anything that's right", which is about enjoying everything you can in the moment.

    It then goes on to say
    "Don't mess with my heart
    Don't mess with my mind
    Won't let you get us down this time.
    You'll like what you see and take it from me
    You'll learn to see it over time."

    Which I interpret as being about someone the singer is interested in. She's asking the person to see the good things about the relationship and not mess with her. Also, she's saying the other person will like what they see (as in, like her) over time.

    I think the last part about being empty and "If you don't give/You're never going to get" is about not getting anything out of the relationship. She's encouraging the other person to put more into it.

    General CommentAlso, I think they made a perfect choice in using this for the theme of the show South of Nowhere

    General Commenti think the meaning is fairly simple.
    i think it's just about indulging in positive things.
    instead of drugs and the like,
    you know all those songs about love being a drug and -insert girls name here- being an addiction?
    well, i think it's like that.
    but i could be totally off mark here.

    General Commentfor me there are two words which can encapsulate all the meaning of this song those are "carpe diem" and everything is clear :D

    General CommentI think this song is just saying don't go out get wasted, you don't have to get fucked up to have a good time.
    It's like a relationship where the person does drugs, and the other person wants them to stop. Stop getting wasted on the drugs, and get wasted on me. ya mean?
