great lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/22/09
this reminds me so much of a girl i dated. always on n off, it expresses exactly how i felt "if it makes you less sad we'll start talking again", and i felt like she always knew she could get back with me, but i knew i was gonna get fed up with it soon enough "call me a safe bet im betting im not", "you are second hand smoke" just poisonous

this song reminds me of my life.
I come from a small town and people only know me for my past, I can't escape it or live my life with everyone judging me like this.
"Call me a safe bet
I'm betting I'm not
I'm glad that you can forgive
I'm only hoping as time goes
You can forget"
those lyrics are me.

this song reminds me of this boy whom i had loved so much. he came on to me first after both of us feeling the attraction for quite a while being next to somebody else. he was decisive, he loved me. i couldn't show him anything although i loved him too much. i knew i would be hurt so much some how, and things would be so much better for both of us, and for some other people involved too, if we weren't togehter. the biggest reason why i couldn't express my emotion towards him was to protect myself before the hit gets larger. he was tired of it, and eventually left me. he's with another girl now. i still love him alot. for better or for worse, i don't regret what i did.

This song makes me think of me and my boyfriend everytime i hear it, more of a song from him to me. In our 3 year relationship on and off hes cheated on me twice he always says he wishes i could forget, and my response is but atleast i forgave. Every word of this song makes me think about him, and some reason makes me sad. i love brand new and their lyrics. Evrytime i hear it ill always think of him
To me | Reviewer: Chris | 9/17/09
This makes me feel like there's some things a guy knows that he doesn't tell a girl. He just hopes they'll forget. He may feel bad, but he still is tired of knowing that you haven't let it go. He hopes you'll forget the good you both had together, so that everything right now won't feel so bad. He wants to stop caring about your feelings, so he can move on. Because he can't move on until you forget. You hold him back. Just forget.

nah that kid up there had it right it is intended to be sarcastic...he broke this girls heart but its for the better...she thought she had it made with him but "hes not a safe bet" and now he is mocking her in a sarcastic way because he knew she wasnt the one for him. he didnt intentionally mean to hurt her and wants her "to forget" but he plays it off with sarcasm cause he realizes that he shouldnt take pity on the weak and insecure and do whats right for him. hes basically telling the girl he will do what it takes to not hurt her anymore but he just has to do whats best for himself witch everyone can relate to...great song and clever lyrics
a quiet reflection for what has ended and begun | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/27/09
i cant find the words.. but, this song stirs up so many emotions inside me. so many emotions that one person had caused and, although i had them and i have moved on, they seem to crawl back and churn inside me everytime i listen to this. i miss you but im so much better off without you. thankyou for what you showed me but, i have something so much better then what you ever could have given me.
Did you feel that? | Reviewer: Keeping it quiet. | 7/14/09
Ever been in a situation where your stomache feels sick, like right after you drink too much caffine or you eat something repulsive?
This song reminds me of the time my best friend decided he liked me, I had infact liked him for the two years we were BEST friends, I had gone through SO much shit with him, and helped him a lot. Then he dropped me like that. Best friends means friends forever, right? This feeling makes me want to puke, I guess that's high school.

To me this song means that, there's two people in a relationship and they REALLY want to be with eachother but one of them knows that it's best for them not to be with eachother.
Although they both want it, Its better to let go.
To me, at least | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/1/09
This song probably reminds alot of people of exes, as well as me. There are some relationships you care so much for, and you want everything to work out for the best, but you know it wont. Well, thats what this song says to me at least. I have an ex that I would do almost anything for, just to make him smile. He's a fan of Brand New, as am I (obviously), and when we broke up, I played this song constantly because it reminded me so much of my own feelings towards him.
agh | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/09
i love and hate this song. it makes me so frustrated because its so self pitying. but at the same time i cant be mad because he feels bad about what he's doing. this perfectly represents my last relationship and my ex even put it in his profile after we broke up.
My opinion . | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/20/09
Personally, I feel the whole song is not intended to be sad, yet sarcastic. This reminds me so much of my ex best friend, who had intentions on hurting me, and after he did, he was really sarcastic, although I tried to remain friends. I think everyone is misinterpreting the song, its not supposed to make you sad, its more like showing people the attitude that people should have, a selfish sarcastic attitude. Not saying that selfish or sarcastic are good, but that sometimes you just need to protect yourself from getting hurt, we need to "block our own shot." After we get into relationships that make us realize the damage that might be done, we need to get out of that relationship in order to block your own shot; prevent what you started. So, the song is basically an apology for getting into that relationship, but his sarcasm is for the damage he knew she might have caused. He hurt her first to save himself... I think we should all try it, maybe the world won't be so bummy, maybe we all will know that everyone is going protect themselves, therefore no one will get hurt ...

My ex was really into brand new, we broke up a while ago because he needed to get his head sorted, when he decided we should break up we said we would spend one more day together as a couple, to say goodbye and then go out separete ways. Because although it was for the best, it was too much to just say goodbye straight away. We had a lovely day, we went on a walk, he picked me flowers and made me dinner. As I was about to leave he said this song reminded him of me, our situation, everything he was feeling, especially the line "and it hurts a whole lot, but its missed when its gone" and he put the song on as he kissed me goodbye, it was the nicest and sadest moment of my life, now listening to this song makes me cry but it also reminds me of that time when it felt like it was just us to, and it reminds me that he did love me.
So familiar. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/17/09
This song reminds me of a girl that I thought I loved, but turns out she didn't feel the same way, even though she told me she did, so I took the chance of not being with a girl who actually liked me, for a girl that I thought the world of, I'm glad that I can still be friends with both, but it's hard, this song helps so much, that whole album does in general.
I know | Reviewer: Jazmin | 4/8/09
We fought, my (now) ex and I and ended it in anger. Three days later he gave me a five page letter telling me that I had broken his trust in people and he could never love again. I was his first girlfriend. It hurt me twice as bad as the fight. I cried for hours and now I cannot look at him without fighting the urge to make it better. But he won't listen. I don't want to get back with him, I just want to make him see that I am sorry and want him to be able to love again. But I can't. I hate hurting people. I do. And every word he wrote is like a dagger in my brain. They'll never leave. Even when I am with other people, his words still echo. They resonate in dissonance.
