up the stairs and down the hall,
to your door and through your wall.
sorry that i never called.
sorry that i never called you.
so please, come to your window.
been throwin' rocks all night.
i must be, i must be crazy
never thought it would come to this, and maybe
it's suicide by small increments, amazing.
i'll admit that it's amazing.
i cannot get my hands around it.

brick by brick i built these walls.
brick by brick i built these walls.
i'm sorry that i never called.
sorry that i never called you.
i must be crazy.
never thought it would come to this. and maybe
it's suicide by small increments. amazing.
i'll admit that it's amazing.
i cannot get my hands around it.
so please come to your window.
been throwin' rocks all night.
i must be, i must be. i must be crazy, baby.
i never thought it would come to this.
i must be crazy, baby.
it's suicide by small increments.

    Couple things... this song is actually called Suicide Baby, unless it's a demo version I don't know about. And, don't type your lyrics as blocks of text cause it's kinda hard to read and we're technically not supposed to.

    Ya, it's the version off the first house of heroes CD "what you want is now". Same song, different name, different arrangement

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
