I take these turns
A bit too fast
Trying to leave you
In my past
The CD skips
Our favorite songs
Our greatest hits
Just don't belong

I really love
To hate this
Love hate
Hate love relationships
Are over-rated
Over my dead body
Is how this will end
He said it's over
And I could go for
Another chance to do
This over again

So this is it?
After all
We've been thru
We call it quits
And-a I'm about to
Wash my prints
Oh
The little I had left
He said it's over
And I could really go
For a cup of coffee
And an overdose

Leave it all behind me
You'll see it
When you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close
Cover up copy
And an overdose

I pop these pills
Like cracker jacks
And the price
That plays dice
Just watching you react
When your depressed you
Sleep too much
I'm not sure
If I'm waking up

It's over-rated
Over my dead body
Is how this will end
You said it'd over
And I could go
For another chance to do
This over again

So this is it?
After all
We've been thru
We call it quits
And-a I'm about
To wash my prints
Oh
The little I had left
He said it's over
And I could really go
For a cup of coffee
And an overdose

Leave it all behind me
You'll see it
When you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close
Cup of coffee
And an overdose

He said it's over
And I could really go
For a cup of coffee
And an overdose
Leave it all behind me
You'll see it
When you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close

I stood in line
Without you
I stood in line
Without you
And I don't tell you
What it is
I thought about you
Well without you
Is everything I've got

    Awesome track actually. It sort of grows on you.

    Used to think it was average, but after hearing more and more, started to like it and eventually love it.

    Following up my first meaning, I think this song is talking about how she's just alone in line without her man, waiting to get her cup of coffee, that's just my opinion, yours is probably MUCH different. I hope iTunes puts it on sale!

    Hmm. Actually, yeah.

    She uses the words overdose and comatose and stuff relating to ODing a lot. What I thought was that she was comitting suicide with a cup of coffee and an overdose.

    "Comatose or pretty close
    Cup of coffee
    And an overdose"
