"Tally It Up, Settle the Score" as written by and Jesse Lawson Jack Fowler....
Tally up those points for me
We're settling the score
After everything we've started
You're gonna keep begging me for more
(Watch this, start this again)

Tally up those points for me
We're settling the score
After everything we've started
You're gonna keep begging me for more

You don't need to tell me all about
The worst that I have been
Keep believing that we've given up
We're not giving in
I promise this is personal

Whoa, oh
Look at what you've started here
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
No, I just can't take it anymore

Look at what you've started now
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Right now, I hope this makes you nervous

Tell me what were you thinking
When you kept calling us out
Or you thought we would sit quietly
And let you keep running your mouth

You don't need to tell me all about
How unoriginal we are
Keep believing that we're over when
We'll prove ya (wrong, wrong)

Whoa, oh
Look at what you've started here
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
No, I just can't take it anymore

Look at what you've started now
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Right now, I hope this makes you nervous

I hope you know
You are what made us this time
I hope you know
We'll never fall out of line
I hope you know
We'll be the greatest this time

I hope that you
Remember, remember, remember
Remember
I hope you remember

The last time we tried from the start
To prove this I needed your family apart
Take me back
Start this again

Oh, no
Look at what you've started here
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
No, I just can't take it anymore

Look at what you've started here
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
No, I just can't take it anymore

Look at what you've started now
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
I know, I know that you know
Everything you've started here
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
I know, I hope this makes you nervous

    My InterpretationIt should be "Begging me for more" and "Right now, I hope this makes you nervous" and I want original, we are". Okay, one, no comments! There should at least be 2 comments for every SWS song out there. Two, I don't really fully get the song, but basically these people broke up and this girl keeps aggravating the guy to cause drama and talks shit about him, but he won't stand for it so he's settling the score and he hopes she's nervous now.

    My InterpretationPersonally, I believe this song is about the people who hated their band. He/They are saying when Kellin sings, "Keep believing that we've given up, we're not giving in. I promise this is personal." The band means so much to them and if you mess with the band then you are messing with the each and every single band member. Yet, the haters can keep on believing the band will give up their talent, but they won't. Then it goes on to say you'd thought we'd sit here quietly, while you keep running your mouth. They mean, they won't put up with all the bulls**t lies everyone is making up about them. It says WE not I a lot of times and they're, not just one person, speaking to the person/group.

    BTW, bro you spelt a lot of stuff wrong. Just saying.

    Lyric CorrectionLyric correction:
    "Remember the last time we tried from the start,
    You took things I needed now sound the alarm,
    Take me back,
    Start this again"

    Jesse, the guitar player wrote this part of the song, and in one interview he and Kellin said it together.
