I've got troubled thoughts
And the self esteem to match,
What a catch
What a catch, whoa-oh

You'll never catch us
So just let me be...
I said I'll be fine
Till the hospital
Or American embassy

Miss Flack said I still want you back
Yeah
Miss flack said I still want you back

I've got troubled thoughts
And the self esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I'm the one who charmed
The one who gave up on you
Who gave up on you...

They say the captain goes down with the ship
So when the world ends
Will God go down with it?

Miss flack said I still want you back
Yeah
Miss flack said I still want you ba-a-ack

I've got troubled thoughts
And the Self esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch

And all I can think of is the way
I'm the one who charmed
The one who gave up on you
Who gave up on you...

Na na nanana na na nanana
Na na nanana na na

What a catch, what a catch, what a catch, what a catch

I will never end up like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calender
This way you will always know

I've got troubled thoughts and the self esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch,
And all I can think of is the way
I'm the one who charmed
The one who gave up on you
Who gave up on you...

Where is your boy tonight
I hope he is a gentleman maybe he wont find out what I know

We're going down, down
In an earlier round
And sugar, we're going down swinging

Dance dance we're falling apart to half time,
Dance dance these are the lives you love to lead

This aint a scene it's a goddamned arms race,
This aint a scene it's a goddamned arms race

One more night and one more time,
Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
Growing up, growing up...

I've got troubled thoughts and
The Self esteem to match
What a catch...

    I know this is an extremely late reply, but the songs used in the "ending" are in this order:
    Grand Theft Autumn/Where is your Boy
    Sugar, We're Going Down
    Dance, Dance
    This Ain't A Scene, It's an Arms Race
    Thanks for the Memories
    Growing Up

    If your a FOB fan the ending is great because they reprize all the old favorites from the first album to this one. Like Dance dance and thanx 4the memories. but all in minor key, love it!
