I could only sleep when you were next to me
then I'd never wanna get up
good morning, sunshine
did you dream about me?
and what the hell's in the way of our today?

yesterday I had it figured out
you were gonna be mine
now you love me more than toast and less than a staple gun

let's not blow it right now
let's not do something we'd both regret
never is a long time to wait for you
and I'm not getting any younger
not getting any younger

who's the new kid that you're seeing?
does he ever buy you flowers?
does he ever tell you that he'd love you till the end of time?
does he ever never wanna hurt you?


i just want someone to be there on my birthday
i just want someone to get real drunk with
i just want someone who needs someone to need them
because I've got nothing left that I believe in

so hello, and it's goodbye again
I'm going home to cry again
you still have all those letters I wrote you
and I still have my song

    General Commentcool song, even if some of the lyrics don't make sense, like "yesterday I had it figured out/ you were gonna be mine/ now you love me more than toast and less than a staple gun". i personally like toast more than staple guns.

    General CommentI dig it so much. One of their best songs. I wish o wish o wish they hadn't broken up. Such potential! I desperately want to know the meaning behind the title of this song.

    Best writing of all emo-ish punk songs is from the Benjamins.

    General CommentThe title refers to the lead singer of the band The Mr T Experience, who called himself Dr. Frank. who has been described as "one of the most lovestruck, heartbroken men who ever walked earth."

    This is a fantastic song that resonates with me a lot, by the way.

    General Commentfurthermore, the line "you love me more than toast and less than a staple gun" is directly from the mtx song "more than toast".
