"Red Letter Day" as written by Leonard Ahlstrom and Eddie Carswell....
You've got some nerve I never knew
What with the world we gave away in front of you
I see it all much clearer now
You're just a phase
I've gotten over anyhow

It's over
I'm not giving in again

We're loyal like brothers
Just us versus all the others
You the one for, you the one for me

I trusted misleading promises worth repeating
How could you do this to me?

Red letter day that I learned
I'm sure you'll get what you deserve
I see it all much clearer since
Far past the point of this

It's over
We're loyal like brothers
Just us versus all the others
You the one for, you the one for me

I trusted misleading promises worth repeating
How could you do this?
How could you do this to me?

And if it's a lie
I don't want to be the one who signed
I'm not the one who falls down
It's over now

If you want to try
Try to forget it
I'll say it's over, I'm gone

We're loyal like brothers
Just us versus all the others
You the one for, you the one for me

I trusted misleading promises worth repeating
How could you do this?
How could you do this?
How could you do this to me?

    General CommentMelodic, emotional, and vague. sounds like a get up kids song. This could be describing a number of different situations via song. Red-Letter is an adjective meaning memorably happy. This song has little to do with happiness, which is a pleasant quirk: happy song, sad lyrics. This is one of my favorite songs by the get up kids.
