Brand New Jude Law And A Semester Abroad Lyrics

Last updated: 01/12/2012 10:00:00 AM

Whatever poison's in this bottle will leave me broken, sore, and stiff.
But it's the genie at the bottom who I'm sucking at; he owes me one last wish,
So here's a present to let you know I still exist;
I hope the next boy that you kiss has something terribly contagious on his lips

But I've got a plan (I got a plan)
Drink for forty days and forty nights.
A sip for every second-hand tick.
And every time you're fed me the line, "you mean so much to me..."
I'm without you.

[Chorus x2]
Tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states,
the American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say.

And even if her plane crashes tonight she'll find some way to disappoint me,
by not burning in the wreckage or drowning at the bottom of the sea.
Jess, I still taste you, thus reserve my right to hate you,
and all this empty space that you create does nothing for my flawless sense of style.

It's 8:45. The weather's getting better by the hour,
(Rains all the time) I hope it rains there all the time.
And if you ever said you missed me then don't say you never lied;
I'm without you.

[Chorus x2]
Tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states,
the American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say.

Who would do anything you say...

Never gonna get it right, you're never gonna get it

No more songs about you
After this one, I am done
You are, you are, you're gone

Tell all the English boys you meet, about the American boy back in the states,
the American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say.

great lyric - and even if her plane crashes tonight she'll find some way to dissappoint me, by not burning in the wreckage or drownng at the bottom of the sea! God i feel like that sometimes. Heartache is horrible.



its funny how it happens | Reviewer: tdawg | 10/10/10

I am currently abroad in England for a year, and before I left my bf of 2 years dumped me. He was looking forward to that time I was gone to get over me and hook up with new girls. When this happened I listened to this brand new song over and over to try to forget about my ex. This went on for about a month and then my bf contacted me saying he loved me and me being gone made him realize that. We now talk every day and are more in love than ever. Brand new does an excellent job of captureing the feeling and sort of irrationality that occurs when a lover goes abroad...



I believe you're all a bit worked up | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/23/10

I don't mean to sound like your mother or anything, but I really think that getting this excited (in a good or bad way) about this song is a bit ridiculous. I really like this song and I do think that many people can relate, but that doesn't mean that people who like the song should call others dumbasses and other rude names. For both sides, kill with kindness. It is much more satisfying to know that you could have lost your cool but you didn't. Be the better person, it really brightens lives



Brand New | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/2/10

I really do love Brand New. I know it's a little strange for a guy to say that but I am one of they're biggest fans. I have every one of their albums on my ipod and on my laptop. My sister got me into these guys when I was like 9 or 10 years old. im now 14 and i listen to these guys all day every day. Their songs and Jesse's lyrics and emotion in his voice help get over a lot of things.



Brand New Must be Terrible with Relationships | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/27/10

My ex went abroad to Spain, we broke it off for two months. I'd figure all those pretty boys over in Spain would be enough to take her mind of some blue collar military schmo like myself. you know, someone she could never be with. This girl is pretty sexy like at least an 8. I mean im a pretty attractive guy i pull in some good ones. Anyways after those two months, this girl's trying to skype me left and right telling me about how she cannot get me off her mind. Im just saying brand new makes some good heartfelt tunes. But this ones pathetic. You're rockstars. Bang and forget about her.



Seriously grow up, | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/11/10

if you have ignorant shit to say about a bands lyrics, no mater how deep or shallow they are, take it somewhere else, cause punk/emo/hardcore or any other labels you want to put on music that has emotional depth in it, always have the fans that can connect with it through and through, who have experienced this hardship and stress in their lives that use good music as an emotional outlet, so FUCK OFF YOU HYPOCRITICAL COCK SUCKERS

SEMPER FI



Vera sucks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/29/09

Seriously, you don't know these guys so don't go assume shit about them...if you know their music at all you would know they are pretty deep and if they write a song, there's a reason for it...clearly if you pay attention to the lyrics something went on here...dumbass...



Bomb.com song... | Reviewer: Natticus | 8/9/09

this is completely how I feel about the girl i really like. we've been talking and hanging out and stuff, but she leaves for england in a few months, so i doubt she'll even contact me once she's gone.



Vera your a cunt hole. | Reviewer: Bre | 5/6/09

I'm a feminist through and through...and maybe if you thought about the lyrics you would understand, that maybe JUST MAYBE. the chick went away without considering that mr lacey might just lover her. and maybe when she took that semester abroad she DID cheat. god your a cunt hole



Vera | Reviewer: Guy | 3/5/09

Vera, stop being a stupid feminist cunt, it's just a song. And guess what, an entire fucking semester abroad is usually the death of relationships that may have been great while they were stateside. So stop talking if you don't know what you're talking about.



stupid | Reviewer: Vera | 2/14/09

its funny how a band like this can bitch about their girls going off and doing their own thing, when I'm sure this band has gone off and done their own thing on tour MANY times without their girls.... and as soon as the girl wants to better herself in school and take a semester abroad, she cant? because that automatically means shes cheating? wow.



sam-sam-sam-sam | Reviewer: Sam-lol | 11/27/08

i love this song the band and the two albums i hove of theirs. i just started listening to them. i heard them from my brother who used to listen to brand new and i found his cds. these guys inspire me



Too similar.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/13/08

Totally describes my ex :-\
Went out for 2 years and then went on vacation in mexico and dumped me for some english guy that she'll prob never see again.

Great song never the less, really helped me get over her :)



Fans. | Reviewer: Erin | 9/16/08

Everybody's talking about how they don't want a whole lot of people knowing about Brand New, but have you ever thought of what's good for the band? More fans is good for the band, and I don't understand why more people don't realize that. I totally understand when people say that they hate it when people are like "I love Brand New! They're so awesome!" when they really only know like two songs. I think that's ridiculous. Yea, it is kind of nice having a favorite band that's not mainstream, 'cause it's different and everything, but people, stop being so selfish. Having more fans is great for the band. Please, nobody freak out because of what I just said. I'm only saying my opinion.

Anyway, Brand New is my favorite band and the lyrics are amazing.



i love brand new! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/22/08

this song is absolutely amazing, even though they have so many better songs.

although i was very disappointed with their new cd, the devil and god are raging inside me. the only songs that i really liked on there was Sowing Season, Jesus, and The Archers Bows Have Broken.

But nevertheless Brand New is absolutely amazing and will always be one of my favorite bands. =D
