Used to be a huge Taking Back Sunday fan in high school and early college. Of all their songs, this is my favorite. Maybe it’s because these lines resonate so well with my past…
"She says live up your your first impression
Well my best side was your worst invention
Why can’t you live without the attention?”
"If I’m an arrogant prick shitting out heart attacks, then you’re the queen of the damned: feelingless, devoid of tact. Hey, I’m the crazy one here! I’m dying of a deep regret."

"A beautiful girl can make you dizzy, like you’ve been drinking Jack and Coke all morning. She can make you feel high, full of the single greatest commodity known to man - promise. Promise of a better day. Promise of a greater hope. Promise of a new tomorrow. This particular aura can be found in the gait of a beautiful girl. In her smile, in her soul, the way she makes every rotten little thing about life seem like it’s going to be okay."
"To be Irish is to know that in the end the world will break your heart."
