I wish I had you back, but it's too late.
You're too far gone.
The same old situation. The same old story.
The same old song.
An act of desperation. Or aspiration?
It's all semantics, don't you know?

I'd like to be the one to say goodbye.
It must be fun to be afraid to try.
Leave it up to you to make me see
That jealously ain't really that bad a thing.

They said to "try love our way." It makes you happy,
It solves the problems.
The only trouble with that is the simple fact
It's the root of them.
I'd take it seriously
If you didn't act so goddamned guilty every time.

I'd like to be the one to say goodbye.
It must be fun to be afraid to try.
Acknowledge your expendability.
One is a less lonely number than three.

I'd like to be the one to say goodbye
It must be fun to be afraid to try.
It's a shame I couldn't stare at you
The way you glanced at me while passing through.

These pure pop sounds find the “young and angry” pleasure center for which all of us lust. In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement. ... more
