Make Damn Sure by Taking Back Sunday. (MakeDamnSure. . . wtf ever. i put spaces when i type it.) But anyway... i was thinking back to my junior high school days, and i remembered this song. I used to listen to it all the time and it was probably my favorite song.

I just realized i have no idea WTF this song is supposed to be about. the lyrics are so weird. especially the second verse and the bridge (Bold )... here they are...
............................................................................

You've got this new head filled up with smoke
I've got my veins all tangled close
To the jukebox bars you frequent
The safest place to hide
A long night spent with your most obvious weakness
You start shaking at the thought you are everything I want
'Cause you are everything I'm not

And we lay we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
While I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

My inarticulate store bought hangover hobby kit
It talks, and it says, "You,are, you are so cool."
"Scissor shaped across the bed, you are red, violent red."
You hollow out my hungry eyes
You hollow out my hungry eyes

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
While I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

I just wanna break you down so badly
While I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
I'll make damn sure that you can't ever leave
No, you won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far from me
You won't ever get too far...


I just wanna break you down so badly
While I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I'm gonna make damn sure
I just wanna break you down so badly
I just wanna break you down so badly (damn sure)
In the worst way (worst way)

It's obviously about how he wants to **** this girl so badly.

In the second verse it seems like he woke up next to some chick after a night of drinking and can't get himself together so he stumbles over his words and comes up with 'you are so cool' to say to her. The whole song seems to be about a relationship where the two people can't seem to let each other get close enough to who they really are and it's driving this dude crazy so he wants to flip and destroy her somehow for putting them in that situation.

There's my two cents, and it's better than anything else you'll get from the pit at this hour.

hahaha thanks, I suppose. Songs mean something different to everyone, and although I didn't listen to them much in middle/high school, I did have a relationship junior year, two semesters ago, that kinda went down like that, and reading along to the words it brought back strong feelings of that girl and how we were together, so I filled in the blanks and interpreted it like that.

A good song is one that's universal, but creative. A great songwriter finds a way to say something that everyone feels every day, but phrase it in a way that makes you look at it differently and say 'oh, wow, I feel that way sometimes and this guy/gal knows what it feels like too, because they captured the emotion so well in this song' or something like that.
