Is there a word or right to say
Even in this old fashioned way
Go make your move, girl
I'm not coming home

Would things have changed if I could've stayed
Would you have loved me either way
Dressed to the blues.
Day to day with my collar up.

Decision sits so make it quick
A breath inhaled from an air so sick
I cursed the day I had learned
Of the web you spun...
You had your hold till bleeding

(Hey, Hey!)
If it was up to me
I would've figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, I hope you're waiting


Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
You may be invited, girl, but you're not coming in

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
I may be invited, girl, but I'm not coming in

(Hey, Hey!)
If it was up to me
I would have never walked out
So until the sun burns out
Oh, i hope you're waiting

We have lived as a child would care
With this vial to drink I dare
(Oh where have you been, oh where have you been)
Only to cry all alone with your taste on tongue
(Oh where have you been if it hurts to be forgiving, Bye)

Should we try this again with hope (Bye, bye)
Or is it lost, give up the ghost
And should I die all alone as I knew I would...
(Then burn in hell young sinner)

(Hey, Hey!)
If it was up to me
I would have figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, i hope you're waiting
Oh, i hope you're waiting

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
You may be invited, girl, but you're not coming in

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
I may be invited, girl, but I'm not coming in


(Hey, Hey!)
If it was up to me
I would have figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, i hope you're waiting

(Hey, Hey!)
If it was up to me
I would have never walked out
So until the sun burns out
Oh, i hope you're waiting

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
I may be invited, girl, but I'm not coming in

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
You may be invited, girl, but you're not coming in

Listen well will you marry me (Not now, Boy)
And are you well in the Suffering (You've been)
The most gracious of hosts
You may be invited, girl, but you're not coming in

And you're not coming in..

    thats pretty true
    its about the writer and his exgirlfriend who he was going to ask to marry him but she cheated on him (see Welcome Home) and the emotional agony led him to write the Amory Wars (thats the commic claudio Sanchez writes. The vast majority of Coheed and Cambria's songs are about events in the Amory Wars. Coheed and Cambria are the parents of the main charactor in the comic book)

    This song, obviously, is about a relationship. From the sounds of it, in the beginning of the relationship, it was really good, but eventually, the girl started to weave a web for some reason or another and took the boy quite sometime to figure out. once he learned of this "web" he was faced with a difficult dicision to stay or go, but by the end of the song, he realizes it's best to cut his losses and not let her back into his heart.
