Last Straw Lyrics - Jack's Mannequin

Review The Song (11)



I heard that you went out last night
And you looked beautiful just like a bat
Beneath the moonlight
I stayed home took a Vicodin...
Sometimes it's all that I can do
When I think about the president
How did he become the president?
And I stayed awake for a day or two
I thought about the world
Drank gin and watched the news
And there are some things I'll never understand
Why the country needs a God
And a woman needs a man

And you never write me letters
And you never sent my sweaters
So I could stay warm when I was without you
sponsored links
Without you I don't sleep
Just dream...

And I scratch these words into a black notebook
I wrote your name on top I knew you'd never look
I tried my best to fight the atmosphere
To think the happy thoughts
That leave the phone lines clear
I see Arizona stars from here
But Peter Pan is miles away

And you never write me letters
And you never sent my sweaters
So I could stay warm when I was without you
Without you I don't have...
A place that's safe from all the monsters
That hide in my head and sing me to sleep (sleep)
This is the last straw...

This is the last straw she said
And I won't wait for you forever
While you run around like JFK
You watched that poor girl
Waste the best years of her life
And I'll be damned if I am going out
I will not go out that way!

And you never write me letters
And you never sent my sweaters
So you could stay warm when I was gone
Without you I don't have...
A place that's safe from all the monsters
That hide in my head and keep me 'til dawn
And I think this is the last straw.

This song makes me smile...as do all their other songs. | Reviewer: Kristin | 12/28/09

Andrew is so damn talented! Every lyrics speaks pure perfection. He is, hands down, the most talented musician that I know (not personally, of course). Love it!;) I'm especially fond of the part when it gets all quiet and he sings, "I won't wait for you forever while you run around like JFK. You watched that poor girl waste the best years of her life and I'll be damned if I am going out.... I will not go out that way" xD

this song is amazing. no other way to explain it. and just the someone eles said, it makes you think alot and relate them to your own life. makes me feel good kindof. cause i know someone eles feels the way i do, idk.



live | Reviewer: Megan | 3/16/07

this song was amazing live. i just thought you all should know.



one of my favorite songs ever. | Reviewer: Sas | 12/17/06

the "i won't wait for you forever..." IS the best part in the song, i won't lie. but the chorus is amazing too. the way he sings in it and the words just get to me; he sounds so sincere. i love this song, but that last verse is just one i can relate to perfectly, and i have to thank andrew for that.



Ohh..I love this song. | Reviewer: Megg'n | 1/16/06

This song just makes me think a lot. I love a song that does that. :D It's like you're jumping into Andrew's head. I don't know why but I just feel like I can relate to this song. It's wonderful, the music is great, I just all around love the song!
