Floorboards
Real Friends Lyrics


You said I didn't cry out to the clouds for nothing
You told me everything eventually works out
That's what I'll keep telling myself

I don't wanna be
jealous of the trees next to my neighbor's garage anymore
I'll just lie in the mess I made

Don't let me fall off the edge and break down
Try not to forget everything I said

Just another week
and I'll pick myself up off my bony knees
I guess it took a year to realize that what I had was
Everything I needed to feel okay
But still I've got these sleepy eyes
That have seen too much for me to handle

I'm not gonna lie
My skin and bones have seen some better days
Thirty pounds ago seemed like a more stable place to stay

I'm not gonna lie
My skin and bones have seen some better days
I'm not gonna lie
My skin and bones have seen some better days

Just another week
and I'll pick myself up off my bony knees
I guess it took a year to realize that what I had was
Everything I needed to feel okay
But still I've got these sleepy eyes
That have seen too much for me to handle

There's no point to the floorboards in my house
Nothing feels right
And I can't stand up without you
Nothing feels right

Just another week
and I'll pick myself up off my bony knees
I guess it took a year to realize that what I had was
Everything I needed to feel okay
But still I've got these sleepy eyes
That have seen too much for me to handle

This song along with "Anchor Down" definitely have the potential to become classics within the pop punk genre years from now. (They kinda are in my book already).

I'm proud of the success these guys have had. They're one of my favorite bands. I just wish Kyle would go back to this type of writing style for the majority of their songs:

-Catchy, Honest, Authentic, not TOO sappy or borderline melodramatic (like "Sixteen" or "Mess" for example), and relatable to/for a lot of people.

It's definitely a hard balance to find. Especially within the Pop Punk genre (which is known for being overly optimistic prior to the 2010s).

But it can be done. The Wonder Years, Neck Deep, Citizen, The Story So Far, and Turnover are bands that have all utilized this tactic, and have be able to pull it off very well for the most part.

Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, Modern Baseball, City Lights, Paige, State Champs and others are also bands that have attempted utilizing this tactic as well, and for a lot of fans, seem to be hit or miss depending on the album or song.

Their (RF's) new album was fairly okay for the most part I found. Much more enjoyable then their debut IMO. My favorite tracks on it are:

-Stay In One Place
-Empty Picture Frames
-Isolating Everything
-Keep Lying To Me

But my all time favorite RF songs are:

-Floorboards
-Anchor Down
-Lost Boy
-Cover You Up
-I Think I'm Moving Forward

What's up with these guys and singing about knees?

myself&me

I always thought he is talking about eating disorder when he mentions bony knees, because it says "thirty pounds ago seemed like a more stable place to stay"

+Connor Ovington The Bassist is Kyle and the singer is Dan. The lyrics are based off of Kyle's, the bassist's, life. So yeah, It's based on the bassist

You guys have helped me through so much man, your music has made me realise who really is important and who isn't. I now know that I shouldn't ever let girls mess with my emotions, because they aren't worth my time. My friends are all I really need right now, and if they cant help me, then the music you guys make certainly will. So i'd like to say thank you for everything you lot have done for me over the past couple of years, although your unaware of it and may not even see this message. I don't know where I'd be without your music. Seen real friends live twice and it was the best experiences of my life, hopefully you visit the UK again soon and if so, come right back to Newcastle, we love you up here.
