I'm gonna make it bend and break (it sent you to me without wings)
Say a prayer, but let the good times roll
In case God doesn't show (let the good times roll, let the good times roll)

And I want these words to make things right
But it's the wrongs that make the words come to life
"Who does he think he is?"
If that's the worst you've got
Better put your fingers back to the keys

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great
"He tastes like you, only sweeter"
One night, yeah and one more time
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
"See, he tastes like you, only sweeter," oh oh oh oh oh

Been looking forward to the future
But my eyesight is going bad
And this crystal ball
It's always cloudy except for (except for)
When you look into the past (look into the past)
One night stand (one night)
(One night stand off)

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great
"He tastes like you, only sweeter"
One night, yeah, and one more time
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
"See, he tastes like you, only sweeter," oh oh oh oh oh

They say I only think in the form of crunching numbers
In hotel rooms, collecting page six lovers
Get me out of my mind and get you out of those clothes
I'm a liner away from getting you into the mood, whoa

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great
"He tastes like you, only sweeter"
One night, yeah, and one more time (oh, oh)
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
"See, he tastes like you, only sweeter," oh oh oh oh oh

One night and one more time (one night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great
"He tastes like you, only sweeter"
One night, yeah, and one more time (one night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
"See, he tastes like you, only sweeter," oh oh oh oh oh

    This song is clearly about the end of Pete Wentz's friendship with childhood friend Christopher Gutierrez. It's sort of a long story, but most of the legit. fans know what I'm talking about. The whole "put your fingers back to the keys" thing definitely references Chris's tirade against Pete in his livejournal. And the lines about one-night-stands support the theory that Pete was messing around with Chris's girlfriend, Kate.

    My Interpretation

    I've always been fairly certain this is about being Christian and struggling with your sexuality, and the first 4 lines seal it for me.

    "I'm gonna make it bend and break (They sent you to me without wings)"

    He's gonna bend and break the rules of modern day male/female relationships. I think the second line refers to the man he's gonna have this 'one night stand' with, because he certainty wasn't pointed towards this man by God.

    "Say a prayer, but let the good times roll In case God doesn't show"

    Homosexuality is supposed to be forbidden, taboo, anti-Christian etc etc. The narrator is apologizing for his 'sins', but he's gonna continue to engage in them anyway cause God might not be the fag hating being he's portrayed to be, or he might not even be real at all.

    And of course, the 'he tastes like you only sweeter' line.

    It's "he tastes like you, only sweeter". It's a line from the movie Closer.

    My favorite song on the album. I can't help but sing along every time I hear it.

    I am in love.

    Possible gay undertones here? I realize it's a quote from a movie but wouldn't the line "he tastes like you only sweeter" be inappropriate for a male best friend unless they were secret lovers?

    as I think everyone knows the song is loosely based on the film 'Closer', Pete admitted that he found the film painfully true. People have said there are connections to Chris, but I don't really know the full details of that, and surely he'd be over all that by now?

    The HeyChris theory fits. "And I want these words to make things right, but it’s the wrong that make the words come to life" - he wants this song to make things right with him, but his mistakes are what made him write this song in the first place. And the part "they say you only think, in the form of crunching numbers" could be about Chris saying in that post that Pete has sold out and only cares about the money and attention.

    When I'm dead and gone, I want to be buried with the words 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs' on my coffin/gravestone and to be laying arms crossed with 'Take This To Your Grave' in my hands. Is that weird, or does that mean I'm a really devoted fan?

    Love this song. And the theory fits, of course. And I loved the reference to "Closer." The meaning was so confusing at first, because, Like "Calm Before The Strom" it began to sound x-rated based on the "He tastes like you, only sweeter" and of course, that got people talking. I knew that the song had something to do with one night stands, and not because of the actual line stating it. But I never even thought about the chris theory. So, thanks.

    and better put your fingers back to the keys

    But anyway, this song seriously screams HeyChris vs. Pete.

    Who does he think he is? Is that the worst you’ve got?

    Totally Pete calling him out. Aaah, I wonder if there's any hidden meanings about Morrisey posters and taking pictures of yourself. =]

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
