lyrics

I've been waiting by the phone
wait waiting all night
wait waiting for some kind of sound
sound sound ring ringing in my ears
seven years, seven years
hangs in the balance and

this could take all night, but she's thinking it over
and she could take it off, but she's taking me over

my heart gets stuck in my throat
whenever you come around
I hate when you come around
I love when you come around

my heart gets stuck in my throat
whenever you come around
I hate when you come around
why don't you ever come around
anymore?

I've been waiting by the phone
wait waiting all night
wait waiting for some kind of sound
sound sound ring ringing in my ears
seven years, seven years
hangs in the balance and

if i could kill myself then all this would be over
but i just scare myself, cause all this would be over

my heart gets stuck in my throat
whenever you come around
I hate when you come around
I love when you come around

my heart gets stuck in my throat
whenever you come around
I hate when you come around
why don't you ever come around
anymore?

I've been waiting by the phone
wait waiting all night
wait waiting for some kind of sound
sound sound ring ringing in my ears
seven years, seven years
hangs in the balance

They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
