Sorry we fell out, boy. (Fall Out Boy lyric compilation poem)

Location

Am I more than you bargained for, yet?

Hate me, baby. Maybe I’m a piece of art.

I know I’m the one you want to forget.

Cue all the love to leave my heart.

 

Come on. Make it easy. Say I never mattered.

Baby, we should have left our love in the gutter where we found it.

You could have knocked me out with a feather.

Oh don’t mind me, I’m watching you two from a closet.

 

“She tastes like you only sweeter”.

Say my name and hers in the same breath.

They say I only think in the form of crunching numbers.

...You said you’d keep me honest.

 

I’m just a notch in your bedpost.

But I don’t blame you for being you.

Keep a calendar, this way you will always know.

Oh darling, I know what you’re going through.

 

I confess, I messed up.

They say that I got screws missing

And I wrote the gospel on giving up.

‘Cause last year’s wishes are this year’s apologies.

 

Dropping “I’m sorry”s like you’re still around

Now you’re gone, but I’lll be okay.

But I don’t want to forget how your voice sounds.

We’re broken down on memory lane.

 

I could learn to pity fools as I’m the worst of all.

Why, why, why won’t the world revolve around me?

I’m sitting out dances on the wall.

Wishing to be the friction in your jeans.

 

The songs you grow to like never stick at first.

My songs know what you did in the dark.

She says she’s no good with words but I’m worse.

When routine bites hard, love will tear us apart.




 

Oh, how the mighty fall in love.

You can bow and say you don’t know you’re a legend.

So fitting of the way you are, you can’t cover it up.

This is the road to ruin and we’re started at the end.

 

“Hell yeah, I’m a dick girl. Addicted to you.”

I only wanted fun but you got me all fucked up on love.

I just hope that when you see me I’m not see through.

Bullet proof loneliness, you can’t cover it up.

 

Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me

And there’s no way to talk to you.

I miss missing you and I’m dizzy on dreams.

But I only keep myself this sick in the head ‘cause I know how the words get you.

 

We’re the new face of failure, no one new.

‘Cause no one will ever feel like this again.

And if I could move I’m sure it would only be to crawl back to you

Bury me standing under your window with the cinder block in hand.

 

You cut me off. I lost my track. It’s not my fault I’m a maniac.

Cross walks and crossed hearts and hope-to-dies

When I said I’d return to you I meant more like a relapse.

We need umbrellas on the inside.

 

A penny for your thoughts but a dollar for your insights.

I don’t care what you think as long as it’s about me.

And I’ve got arrogance down to a  science.

We’re sleeping through all our memories.

 

When Rome’s in ruins, we are the lions free of the coliseums.

You and me are the difference between real love and the love on t.v.

And You make my head swim.

But I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me.

 

If they knew how misery loved me

From this sour bottle baby girl with eyes the size of baby worlds

They’d get busy living or busy dying.

The verdict falls like bachelors for bad luck girls.




 

The best way to make it through with hearts and wrists intact

Erase myself and let go

Realize two out of three ain’t bad

But you’re the only place that feels like home

 

I hope this is the last time ‘cause I’d never say no to you.

We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame

Douse yourself in cheap perfume

The world will never look at you the same way.

 

You are a getaway car, a rush of blood to the head.

A rivalry goes so deep between me and this loss of sleep over you.

But me, I’m just the covers on top of your head.

I’ll weigh you down, I’ll watch you choke. You look so good in blue.
