The Greatest Fall
Matchbook Romance Lyrics


The hand of my clock strikes two
In times when I got the best of you
We made promises we couldn't keep
And every night we couldn't sleep.

I didn't know why, but didn't ask questions
Because it was the first time in my life,
Yeah the first time in my life
Where I, did something right.
I set myself up for the greatest fall of all time
You pick me apart
While I search for witty things to say (In my defense)
"You'll never amount to anything anyway"
(Don't press your luck, don't press your luck)

And think that I'm impressed with your one night stands
And your contagious kiss
I'm trying to get this right
Yeah, cause I'm ridicules like that

I'll keep this as
A constant reminder
Of the nights I spent holding onto her
And rest assured I'm moving on
I miss you less, with each day your gone (your gone)

Blasting this in my car in High School. Girlfriend in the passenger seat. Friends in the back seat. One of them doing the double bass with his feet. All of us singing and screaming along. Some of the best times of my life.

Don't do that to me....
my friend Dusty with his Mitsubishi Eclipse, 2 Pioneer subs in a box blasting this stuff with Elizabeth and Kelly in the back, no room for knees, but plenty of room for emo plees!!!!!

Jonathan Fernandez

Same with me bro.

Crazy thing is I was doing the same thing in 2004-2008 I'd give anything to just relive a week of those years. Especially if it was summer. So much nostalgia.

Geez. There is some nostalgia right here. Those base drums though...

Matchbook Romance is severely under rated. ❤

David

Just listened to this album all the way through for the first time in over 10 years. Not a single bad song or one I felt like skipping on the entire thing. Underrated classic

Brother Joshua

My heart hurts when I think of how quickly time has passed.
