Fairfax (You're Still The Same) Featuring Andrew McMahon Lyrics

You're still shakin'
With your ass down on Fairfax
You're out so late
But nobody said that you are so late

Your friends come hot
With plenty of cocaine
But you don't hate
Who's got your back on the night you hesitate

You could talk all night
Your mascara paints my bed
Well it can't be right
But that's the only way
That I can get you wet

Well it's all over now
And you're still the same
But I'm still, I'm still okay
Well you got me down
I was so ashamed
But you're still, you're still the same

I see you looking for your face on the TV
And you're smiling back
But you never looked at anyone real like that

Why'd you think that I was so unwilling
You loved me so hard
And it's hard to love
When you don't know who you are

Say you wanna be saved
But all your friends are villians
Oh you hate your way
Why do you cut yourself - to feel it

Well it's all over now
And you're still the same
But I'm still, I'm still okay
Well you got me down
I was so to blame
And you're still, you're still the same

All the boy can do is make you mad
What's wrong with that
You say you need a man to understand
But I'm all you have
Woah..

Well it's all over now
And you're still the same
But I'm still, I'm still okay
And you got me down
I'm the only one to blame
Cause you're still, you're still the same

Well it's all over now
I wish you to stay
Well I'm still, I'm still okay
And you got me down
But I'm not ashamed
Caused you're still, you're still, you're still..
The same

Love the way he sings. The lyrics however, are eh... in my opinion.

Silly cocaine addicted girlfriends.

I think the 4th line is "But nobody said that you are so LA" .. kind of a dig at the way girls from Los Angeles supposidly act.

I think he's kind of saying that even though, yes, she is kind of crazy and def. addicted to drugs... no one said that she has to be this way. And that even though she's so into that world of drugs and alcohol and hot men and whatever... he's always been the one that's been there for her even though it doesn't really seem like she wants him.

I think it’s about his girlfriend who starts to get into the la scene. She wants to fit in and be accepted. So she just does drugs to fit in with her drugee and alcoholic friends. He’s there for her when she doesn’t want to do it, but she does it anyway. After a while she never changed as he was waiting for her to. She wanted to, but she couldn’t and he is ashamed of her. He started to lighten up to what she does after a while, but it’s too late because she broke up with him for not thinking that way all along. He then blamed himself for not stopping her when she wanted him to and he stops being ashamed.

Hey, yeah... I'm hearin' some different lyrics. May I show you what I am hearing?

I hear: "You could talk all night. Your mascara paints my bed; Well that can't be right, But that's the only way That I can get you away." (As in, getting her away from her druggie friends. Make sense? Cuz holy jeez, you had "get you wet" and man, that don't sound right...)

And... "Say you wanna be a saint, But all your friends are villains. Oh you hate your way. Why do you cut yourself to feel it?" (Meaning who the heck has villains for friends and manages to be a saint? And he's asking why she cuts herself to feel it - as in she doesn't know how to take out emotions and hates who she is, so she causes herself pain to clear her head a bit cuz that releases endorphins which makes a person feel better.) Uh... Not that I would know anything about cutting... O_O

But seriously, yeah... That's what I heard. :)
