Oh baby here comes the sound!
I took a train outta New Orleans and they shot me full of ephedrine.
This is how we like to do it in the murder scene.
Can we settle up the score?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.

You're beautiful

Well I'm a total wreck and almost every day.
Like the firing squad or the mess you made.
Well don't I look pretty walking down the street.
In the best damn dress I own?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.
You're so far away.
So c'mon show me how.
'Cause I mean this more than words could ever say.

Might say we are made from the sharpest things you say
We are young and we don't care.
Your dreams and your hopeless hair.
We never wanted it to be this way.
For all our lives.
Do you care at all?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear.
So go on live your life.
But I miss you more than I did yesterday.
You're so far away.
So c'mon show me how.
'Cause I mean this more than words could ever say.

(Won't you tell me?)
(Well, there's no way I'm kissing that guy)

    "And they shot me full of ephedrine"
    "This is how we do it in the murder scene"

    Ephedrine is a diet pill, that when taken in large amouts whilst pregnant can kill your unborn child. This shows that the young girl is scared about being pregnant and wants it to go away, it also suggests that she is taking these diet pills to stay thin so she can "forget" that she is pregnant.

    "Well I'm a total wreck and almost everyday
    Like the fireing squad or the mess you made"

    This is aimed at the boyfriend who got her pregnant. She is very scared and confused and angry. It was not just her fault as it was him who got her into this mess in the first place.

    "Well I don't look pretty walking down the street
    In the best damn dress I own?"

    Her faveorite dress doesn't fit her anymore and this makes her feel unattractive and not very pretty due to her pysical condition.

    "We are young and we don't care
    Your dreams and your hopeless hair
    We never wanted it to be this way"

    They are too young to have a child. They have lost all their dreams. When you are that young, you should not have to worry about raising a child. You should only have small, petty things like your hair to worry about.

    "If you were here
    I'd never have a fear
    So go on live your life
    But I miss you more than I did yesterday"

    I think that maybe the boyfriend has left her when she needs him most. He has left so he can live his life, leaving her alone and scared. She misses him and wants him to come back. I think she is also very angry at him for leaving her in this state and wonders if he ever even cared about her

    "Do you care at all?"

    I totally agree with GoOd GuRl BaD. The song sounds like it's about a pregnant teenager who's basically scared, feels alone and betrayed by the boyfriend who left her, and feels ugly/fat. Great song in my opinion, I love My Chemical Romance, without a doubt my favorite band ever.

    hmm.. this is about a guy who is gay and shy without his bestfriend girl... and he is jealous on his best friend.. here take a look at the phrase...

    Well I'm a total wreck and almost every day.
    Like the firing squad or the mess you made.
    Well don't I look pretty walking down the street.
    In the best damn dress I own?

    [Chorus]
    If you were here I'd never have a fear.
    So go on live your life.
    But I miss you more than I did yesterday.
    You're so far away.
    So c'mon show me how.
    'Cause I mean this more than words could ever say.

    You're beautiful
    !!!

    right...?
