I can't hear you, you sound like static
I can't hear you my ears have had it bad
You sound like a...

Radio with the speakers blown
The treble high and the bass down low
Down low

Tonight I'm drowning in my favorite records
Trying to forget how every thread
Reminds me of the nights I spent with you

They play the soundtrack to my falling tears
The soundtrack to this wasted year
And the sleeves hide scars better than I could ever do

So turn me up when you turn me on
When we hear hearts break we'll say they're playing our song

It sounds like a radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh woahoh
Radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh

The record plays to the beat of my heart
And my heart you know it plays like a metronome
If the record skips a beat my heart will too

It plays the soundtrack to my falling tears
The soundtrack to this wasted year
And the sleeves hide scars better than I could ever do

So turn me up when you turn me on
When we hear hearts break we'll say they're playing our song

It sounds like a radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh woahoh
Radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh

So I'll play these records you've always hated
I'm feeling so sick and medicated
Aw come on why are you so nervous boy
My prescriptions read like ransom notes
And love letters you never wrote
Help me feel like I'm not paranoid

I can't hear you, you sound like static
I can't hear you my ears have had it bad
It sounds like a...

Radio with the speakers blown
Treble high and the bass down low
Down low

It sounds like a radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh woahoh

Radio with the speakers blown
The kind of sound that you'll never know
Treble high and the bass down low
Woahoh
Treble high and the bass down low

    ok... dude. I LOVE this song, and Hit the Lights, but the lyrics are wrong in one part.
    It's:
    Tonight I'm drowning in my favorite records
    Trying to forget how every THREAD
    Reminds me of the nights I spent with you

    See that? Thread, not threat. As in, the threads on a record.
    Duh.

    Tonight I'm drowning in my favorite records
    Trying to forget how every threat
    Reminds me of the nights I spent with you

    They play the soundtrack to my falling tears
    The soundtrack to this wasted year
    And the sleeves hide scars better than I could ever do

    i dedicate that part of the song to my ex-boyfriend.
    this is an amazing song and it made me feel on top of the year after my ex broke up with me after a year of dating.
    THANKS HIT THE LIGHTS!

    Dear MaggieLovesATL,
    You have it all wrong. This song is about how this girl he loved was a bad girlfriend and the songs he listens to reminds him of his falling tears. Get it right sweetheart, cause you're allwrong"/.

    I feel this song is about how involved these boys are with music and how they're about music and everything involved with it.
