Yellowcard Violins Lyrics

Last updated: 06/18/2009 11:00:00 AM

I am just another fool, and I have to, keep telling myself that
I am just a hypocrit, and I have to, keep calling you one
And I forgot to bite my tongue, and* my assumption, was* the mother of all mistakes
So I assume the role, open my mouth, and clumsy words escape

So why you, wanna to be there, when you could be here, you are slipping away

I awake with your replacement, a bottle in my grasp, in an unfamiliar place
Because you put me out, the butt of a sick joke, into this ashtray life
As you come and go, and* I forgot to service you, and we broke down
And you can't live with my mistakes, so* I assume false grace
Open my arms and grasp at something true

How are you, how have you been, girl I miss you, wanna see you again

So why you, wanna to be there, when you could be here, you are slipping away

I bring out the worst in you, and* you try and let me know
You bring out the worst in me, anxiety, anxiety
I'm trying to let you go, you say I'm giving you the creeps
So I assume the role, open my claws and grasp for your heart

[repeat chorus]
Into you like a mortal stake so vindictive
Your love's slipping away

Violins, into this ashtray life
Violins, the butt of your sick joke
Violins, I'm trying hard to let you go

Thanks to for submitting Violins Lyrics.

Bullshit | Reviewer: Tuete | 6/18/09

That song isn't half as good as the original. You probably never heard the original song. And I don't think about the acoustic version from Joey Cape, cause this song was covered from his earlier version from the Album "Hoss". Pah...why am I telling you that, keep staring at your Yellowcard poster. By the way I saw both live in Germany, and Lagwagon is the definetly the better live band and they have the better audience. If you try to mosh at a Yellowcard concert, you have to apologize: Oh sorry, I touched you. Fuck Yellowcard, celebrate Lagwagon.

Heya Dustin- I am one of those 14 year old female Yellowcard fans who started listening in 2004. But I have all, and I mean ALL, [as in all the way back to Where We Stand and whatnot], their music. I know the lyrics by heart- all of them- and have seen them live. And now it's been 5 years and I must say that I'm still sore at being reduced to a stereotype.

But back to the more relevant topic- the song itself. I agree that it's a bit similar in lyrics to "The Underdog," especially "Avondale" in it's sort of painful, sarcastic, and still charmingly intense style. *I stuck a knife into his back, inventiveness is what I lack...etc.* However, it's much less poppy in terms of style, which is really where the difference lies. Bottom line is that this is a great song, really spectacular!

I'm not a big Yellowcard fan, but I won't lie, this is a good cover. Joey Cape of lagwagon also does this song good acoustic.

RE: A Throwback! | Reviewer: Dustin Moczydlowski | 8/26/04

I for got to add this line to my review. "Thank you Yellowcard for perfecting Lagwagon's original lyrics!"

A throwback! | Reviewer: Dustin Moczydlowski | 8/26/04

This is a great new song. It reminds me of the great lyrics from The Underdog EP. This song isn't for the little 10-14 year old girls that started listening to Yellowcard in 2004. Thanks to Mr. Sean Mackin for the great Violin notes!
