Cause jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me was just
A lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

Let's write a song that we can dance to
Cause they all wanna listen
Just to know how it sounds when
I do that thing you know that I do
When I find inspiration
This is me breaking down when

Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me was just
A lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

Let's write a song that we can sing to
And you can lead the choir
And put the hook where it hurts most
And you threw a spark that lit the candle
That set us all on fire
And sent a flame down the east coast

Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me was just
A lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

And I should have been your everything
I'm now at the end of my eternity
And I will sleep to have the darkest dreams
This just won't seem right to me
I close my eyes and beg for peace

Jersey just got colder and...
Jersey just got colder and...
Jersey just got colder and...

Jersey just got colder and
I'll have you know I'm scared to death
That everything that you had said to me was just
A lie until you left
Now I'm hoping just a little bit stronger
Hold me up just a little bit longer
I'll be fine, I swear
I'm just gone beyond repair

    I think that this song is an expression of his love and how much he misses her. She was the warmth and light in his life, and now that she's gone its like jersey just got colder, now that she's gone. But this isn't just a song of his sadness it's also expressing his anger. Was every thing that she told him a lie? Did she ever really love him? After all that he would have done for her, she left when he would have done anything for her, and now he hopes that she'll stay with him. Just a little longer, but she's gone and now he feels broken. So broken that he's beyond repair.

    This song couldn't speak my mind anymore right now. To me it means that he's in love with a girl, who tells him she loves him and that hes important in her life just to keep him around for the moment, and hes terrified of finding out shes been saying it solely to have him for the moment when hes in love with her and honest to his word. His heart is getting cold along with the weather as he waits for her to disappear, knowing that he'll pretend his fine but breaking inside.

    Okay, so here's what I think:.
    The chorus makes me think that Derek is saying that it feels like everything is getting colder, maybe he's talking about the weather, but I think he's saying colder, like darker, more depressing. And "I'll have you know I'm scared to death, that everything you said to me was just a lie until you left" probably means he's thinking that everything that, most likely Katie, said to him, such as "I love you" or "you're the only one for me", was just a lie until she left him. And he's saying that everyone's listening just to see how he sounds, and probably not even getting the meaning of the song, which probably is him saying that no one understands what he's going through at that time. And he's expressing himself through a song, and the lyrics are basically describing his breakdown.
    That's what I think. This song is just *amazing* in every way, the beat, vocals, lyrics. Everything, amazing. Mayday Parade is just awesome.
