You're never going to see what you like
You're never going to wake up and change your mind
You're never going to keep what you hold
You won't accomplish anything on your own

You can't have what you wanted
So make up your mind and come to your senses

You'll never win if you don't bend
It's not so complicated
If you decide to change your mind
You'll find your inundated

You're never going to do what you say
You'll always try to make up another way
You're never going to act on your own
You're never going to see that you're all alone

And so you're here and you don't know
If you can choose the way to go
It's not about the way it is
So don't become a realist
You've got time to make a choice
Don't think aloud but have a voice
And when you think the time is right
Don't ever be afraid to fight

    General CommentI think Face To Face is finally going to get some real credit, and some serious airtime. About time for these guys.

    General CommentI forgot to breathe: Yeah man, I emailed a local radio station here in Louisiana and asked them to play some Face to Face and they DID! They are playing "The New Way" off of How to Ruin Everything. I believe this song is about independence, the responsibility that comes with it, and the ability to compromise.

    General CommentI think this song is about a person that is stubborn and wont change their mind about something despite the fact they want to. Hense the lyrics "You'll never win if you don't bend". I know people like this who know they are wrong but wont admit it. Great song!

    General Commentthis song reminds me of a guy I know who is really stubborn and absorbed by other's opinions, so much so that it conflicts with his own feelings.
    My fave line: "Don't think aloud but have a voice
    And when you think the time is right
    Don't ever be afraid to fight"...I think f2f is trying to say it's never too late to express your true feelings.
