MakeDamnSure Lyrics - Taking Back Sunday

Review The Song (32)



You've got this new hurt filled up with smoke
And I 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
sponsored links
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)

First: Emo, as Pete Wentz perfectly put it, "ain't a scene, its a goddamn arms race". It isn't a genre, its the state of being emotional. So yes, lyric-wise, Taking back sunday is very "emo" However, their music as a whole is not. Nothing is. Taking back sunday is taking back sunday. Stop trying to put a label on everything. It ruins the beauty.



this song....... | Reviewer: kari larson | 4/14/11

this is my favorite song... I heard it so long ago, but i guess i had forgotten about it....... I just heard it again today on Pandora, I had forgotten about it and I was so so happy to hear that song again!! :) and its emo-core not just emo!!! come on ppl!!!!!



Interpretation! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/1/11

Okay guys, I'm pretty sure after analyzing all of the lyrics over and over I've realized how deep this song is. The core meaning of the song is about a young guy stalking this girl whom he has an obsession with as you can tell when he says "you hollow out my hungry eyes" and the chorus itself tells us how badly he wishes he was with this girl (obviously) and its creepy how this goes on for an extended period of time. Its almost like the guy is so obsessed he'll seriously never let this obsession go away "you'll never get too far from me." Obviously the girl is trying to get rid of this guy and we see this in the first lijne and when he says "you'll never get too far from me". Don't bash it, its what I got from the song:) think about it guys! P.S. Beautiful and emotional song <3



Emo? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/5/11

What's with the driving need to classify? What are you ? Darwin trying to define the origin of species?

Emo? Ne'er eard o' it. It's music. Like New Order was .. Like 7 seconds.. Like the Bouncing souls... Like sublime.

It's just music.



Emo | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/4/11

Originally emo was shortened from emo-core, a niche branch of hardcore which is pretty much post-hardcore as we now know it. Nowadays the label is flung around like nobody's business which is kinda sad. I'm pretty sure I'd call TBS emo. Which is amazing. Keep it up.



It is Emo, but that's not a bad thing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/14/10

Ok guys... I'm 26 and listened to TBS since I was 15, before they were main-stream. They are emo. They always were emo. But there's nothing wrong with that. I consider myself an expert on this, since I have actually freaking MET the guys in the band a million times. Just because the emo movement ended, doesn't mean the history of the band changed. Keep in mind that emo stands for emotional. emo music is music that is very emotional by nature. that's it.



yeah, they rock :) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/26/10

okay, so im only 15 right now, and just resently came across tbs. I already luv it! I jus wish more ppl would make music like this then britney spears and lady gaga stuff :p no offence 2 ppl who like them; i jus dont



awsummm!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/14/10

I heard this song a long time ago and only recently heard it again.I almost cried I was so happy. I went to look up the lyrics so my band can cover it, so thanks to the submitter and editors of the lyrics. after re-discovering this song, I then proceeded to search 'taking back Sunday' into YouTube. I was pleasantly surprised... an amazing band with an amazing load of songs! keep it up. x

ps. im sorry to have to butt into this debate, but there is no screaming in this song. some shouting yes, but no screams. but who cares, kick-ass band, eh? peace. :)



Seriously, it's awesome music! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/27/10

I came to look at the lyrics and noticed the review thread. Goodness people, have a little common sense. Like the awesome people before me said, it's alternative. Brush up on your music. I have the preppiest friend in the world who likes blasting TBS on weekday mornings... and I mean the girl goes to John Legend Concerts.

Just an awesome, awesome song by the way. I love the whole Louder Now vibe, it's catchy :P Haha



no seriously | Reviewer: Louise | 8/19/09

This is a great song, I love music like this..I like live on it. But ppl, u don't have 2 debate on whether its emo or alternative, it can be both. It doesn't matter. I love this song.

PS:and it sure in hell aint screamo
