What's another burned bridge?
Does it matter?
You weren't there, why do you care?
End the chapter
Loose talk is the enemy of laughter
Light up my cigarette and wait for disaster

I wish there was a way to give it all away
From the hole where my heart used to be
Just believe me

Don't go play by the water
They say you won't come back
Don't go you won't come back.
Don't go looking for answers.
They say you won't come back
Don't go you won't come back.
Tried to warn you,
You didn't listen.

Back to the lake where I disposed of my body
Parts of me she is resurfacing
And I just don't understand
Why's she gotta talk so much
And I'm so tired of telling lies
I wanna go back

I wish there was a way to give it all away
From the hole where my heart used to be
Just believe me

There's no use in bringing up the past
No need to see where I've been
We can find a silver lining
See the best in all the worst things.

    Your moms chest hairs.
    If you're from africa, why are you white?
    You can't sit with us.
    I hear she does car commercials--in japan.
    She has two fendi purses and a silver lexus.

    It reminds me of little mermaid this girl has amnesia and she wonders why no one wants her to go to the water pond that rights by her house. If she goes she'll remember the horrible accident that caused her to go on dry land

    He's with a girl and he murdered somebody. Thats in the past. She wants to know what he did. If she finds out then he'll have to kill her too.

    I think the meaning of this song, is that this girl, is trying to bring up his past and talk about it with him. Maybe she's getting mad over it, "Why she's gotta talk so much" since he may have done stupid things.
    "You weren't there, why do you care?" He's referring to something that happened before they met and she wasn't there but now she found out and she keeps bringing it up to him.
    "Don't go play by the water, they say you won't come back"
    He's saying if she keeps digging up facts about his past, she probably won't come back to him. And he keeps lying about his past so she won't leave.
