This song is the third track off of this EP.


This girl must be crazy, I can just imagine what she's saying.
As long as she ignores his faults, he doesn't screen her calls.
This boy is a mess, learning all about the Lucifer effect.
He blames his lack of self control on finding copper in her gold.

Overlook the underlying.
Young love is so beguiling.
Broken hearts, still smiling.
At least they're still trying.

I'm not much of a parachute; more like a field if you feel like crashing.
I've been saying you're kinda cute, but I can't keep myself from lashing out.
Call him and calm him down.
The walls are meant for stalling out.
How could she know?
Maybe he should go.

This boy is crazy, I can't tell his thoughts are hazy.
Speech impaired and unaware.
He's not who he wants to be
This girl needs saving, all her feelings are changing.
What happened to the boy with the good intention?
Here's to settling for honourable mention.

Give it up for giving up.
Is this why they mean by tough love?
Get him bending over backwards.
Wanting him back shouldn't be this hard.

Friday night and they're both all alone.
Neither of them answering their phones.
He shows up at her door, flowers in hand, pride on the floor.
He says...
