The All-American Rejects – Swing Swing lyrics
Days swiftly come and go
I'm dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions a-stir
The sun is gone
The nights are long
And I am left while the tears fall

Did you think that I would cry
On the phone?
Do you know what it feels like
Being alone?
I'll find someone new

(Swing) Swing, swing
From the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way to carry on again?

(Wish) cast into the sky
I'm moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old
They bend, they fold
And so do I to a new love

Did you think that I would cry
On the phone?
Do you know what it feels like
Being alone?
I'll find someone new

(Swing) Swing, swing
From the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way to carry on again?

Bury me
You thought your problems were gone
Carry me
Away, away, away

(Swing) Swing, swing
From the tangles of (swing, swing, swing)
My heart (my heart) is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way to carry on again?

(Repeats and fades until the end)

    The singer is not over his ex, he is jealous when she begins to date "other guys" and the long nights and lack of sun symbolize his depression.
    He feels no one can relate to his feelings of loneliness and resolves to find "someone new". He find this person, and begins to have feelings for her, but is still not over his ex, and is therefore confused (his heart is tangled). He wants to "swing" from the tangles and find a way to recover.
    The wish in the sky could refer to wishing on a star at night. As he is getting over his ex, his new girl understands that he made a mistake by dating his ex, and all of his love letters are easily bent and folded with time, just like his heart.
