Sleeping With Sirens – If You Can't Hang lyrics

[Verse 1]
Met a girl at seventeen
Thought she meant the world to me,
So I gave her everything
,
She turned out to be a cheat.
Said she'd been thinking for a long time
And she found somebody new.
I've been thinking that this whole time
.
Well I never thought you'd stay,
That's okay!
I hope he takes your filthy heart,
and then he throws you away someday
.
Before you go, there's one thing you oughta know:

[Pre-Chorus]
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door
.

[Chorus]
I don't wanna take your precious time,
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time.
I don't wanna take up all your time.
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
.

[Verse 2]
You're the lowest type,
You're the lowest
.
I met a girl stuck in her ways,
She found a boy she knew she'd change.
I changed my clothes, my hair, my face
To watch us go our separate ways
.
She said we've grown apart for sometime,
But then she found somebody new.
I hope Mr. Right puts up with all the bullshit that you do
!
Stay the hell away,
While I sit here by myself and figure out how I got this way
,
Before you go, there's one thing you oughta know:

[Pre-Chorus]
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door baby.
If you can't hang then, there's the door
.

[Chorus]
I don't wanna take your precious time,
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time.
I don't wanna take up all your time.
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time.

[Hook]
I don't want to get things confused,
She said she'd never settle for some boy she couldn't use
.
So now I gotta call the doctor,
So he can prescribe me medication,
So I can deal with all the memories
Of being here this way
.

[Bridge]
I met a girl at twenty-three,
Knew she meant the world to me.
So I gave her everything,
And she did the same for me
.
Imagine that!
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face,
No you're such a pretty, pretty face.
Well, oh yeah...
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face,
No you're such a pretty, pretty face.

[Chorus]
I don't wanna take your precious time,
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time.
I don't wanna take up all your time.
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face,
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time.

[Outro]
Would you please stay and come inside, baby,
Would you please stay and please be mine, baby,
Would you please stay and come inside, baby,
Would you please stay and please be mine
?

    If you can't hang is a really good song and it kinda reminds me on how I fell in love with someone but she turned out to be the wrong one. Then I fell inlove with another girl named marissa and shes the world to me, even though she broke up with me twice ill always love her no matter what. Every time I hear sleeping with sirens it reminds me of her and how amazing she is. I love her so much I just wish I knew if she did too.

    I think that this song is an amazing representation of love, at it's best and its worst. It shows the struggle he endured to find his beautiful soul mate. I am whole heartedly committed to this as being my favorite song because everything that Sleeping With Sirens sings, writes, or what have you is pure, utter genius because it comes from every nook, void, and crevice of the aching, mending, and blissfully in love parts of the soul and heart. If you have ever happened to stumble across the music video for this song on the Internet or YouTube, you will see how passionately Kellin Quinn sings this amazing song. Why, you may ask? Because unlike the 'hipster' and 'swaggy' music that is some how popular these days, the lyrics have meaning and come from personal experiences, proven when he cites ages and details. This is coming from a twelve year old girls point of view, just to clarify.
    -Faith are. Mansfield.

    He's saying how he met a girl at 17 that threw away his heart and he hopes she gets the same done to her. Then he says how he met a girl at 23 and how she gave him everything, but then he says 'imagine that', so basically kellin is saying that you never really find a relationship that is perfect, but then at the end he says that he found the girl of his dreams and he's begging for her to come inside and stay with him so that he doesn't have to go through the heartbreak again.

    I feel this song means a lot to me. I dated a girl, we were together for 2 months and half way through she gave me a note saying I was too good for her and that she wasn't the marrying type. But, then, over summer she started dating her male best friend and is now engaged to him. I am only 16, true, and I am a girl. But I'm waiting for that "girl at 23" person. I don't care if it's a guy or a girl. As long as they treat me with respect.

    I first heard this song at warped tour this year, I fell in love instantly. It means so much to me right now. I dated a guy for 10+ months, took him in because he had no where to go, found him a job an did so much for him to help him out, baught him stuff. He was rude to me and did cheatful actions and called me names, but I put up with it and continued to help him. Now that he is getting on his feet, he doesn't want to be with me, and he is acting like I meant nothing to him, I cry constantly from being hurt an he is off having fun acting like its nothing. We split on our anniversary, of course he didn't care about that either:(
