Bowling For Soup - Envy Lyrics




I found your Poison T-shirt
look what the cat dragged in
Seems like it was yesterday
I remember when
We said the word forever
But that’s all over now

We used to be the envy
We used to be the talk of
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town
We used to be the ones who everyone thought would make it
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town
Whenever I’m sober I say to myself
It sucks that it’s over but at least we gave it hell

Our friends always gave us shit
For being so in love
King and queen of the PDA
We kissed until the sun came up
And you were gone
We never said goodbye

We used to be the envy
We used to be the talk of
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town
We used to be the ones who everyone thought would make it
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town
Whenever I’m sober I say to myself
It sucks that it’s over but at least we gave it hell

Time keeps moving on
Our chances are all gone
To follow through with all we said we’d do
So I sing the eulogy
To the ghost of you and me
And drink another beer

The sun went down and you were gone
We never said goodbye

We used to be the envy
We used to be the talk of
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town
We used to be the ones who everyone thought would make it
We used to be the best thing about this fucking town

When I’m not sober I say to myself
Maybe I should call her, and wish her the best
But I remember it’s over
And this feels like fucking hell

    After watching this video probably 20+ times, I just want to say it's really cool that Steve Buscemi is on the mixing board.

  5. Stabs

    Jaret has the best "one of a kind" voices.

  6. Peter Masudal

    Cory Cantu

    Aaron Villarreal I listened to them for nearly 2 years before I found out they were from Texas. That made me love them in a way that only a Texas made band could lol

  11. Jon Moreton

    Wow. This is awesome. It's like behind the scenes with Bowling For Soup. :)

  15. Peter Masudal

    whats that song earlier??

    Yar

    It's the same song, I'm guessing during practice and editing. You can tell by the "drink another beer."

    Peter Masudal

    @Yar okay thanks dude

  16. apple Smith

    Yes he is from Chuck E Cheese and Phineas and Ferb Jaret Von Erich aka Jaret Reddick he plays Danny from band Love Handle

    PBS Funding Addict

    apple Smith * Handel, and Danny was my favorite singer from "Love Handel" and Jaret Reddick is my favorite Bowling for Soup singer!

    Nihilistic Atheist

    You know “von Erich” is a stage name and Reddick is his birth name, right?
    So it should be Jaret Reddick AKA Jaret von Erich.

  17. Brooke Schnoor

    Do these guys still tour?

    Dutchem

    @Brooke Schnoor They will real soon, but only in the US

    Brooke Schnoor

    Kheyl Jenkins

  24. James Todd

    You still are all of this!!!!!!!!!!! -Kyle

  25. Liam Powers

    See you in 22 days!

  26. andsecondcheck

    remembering totally new lyrics word for word without mistakes would slow down the recording process waaay to much. some bands cant even remember them 100% by the time they start performing, especially after having written so many songs in a short period of time that often overlap lyricswise and to make things worse, often had multiple last minute changes

  27. Scott Moffett

    how fucking good does he sound though?

  28. DridgeDEU

    I'm not a native english speaker, can you please hint me to my grammar-mistake?

  29. BastardSixx

    You do know singers read lyrics off a sheet when recording anyway?

  30. Blayne Kelly

    would you prefer a nokia lumia... i personally think it's a good choice, and i also personally think you're fucking weak. Just like your grammar

  31. DridgeDEU

    Reading the lyrics to your own song off a iPhone is fucking weak.

  32. andrea garza

    omg i love them!

  33. XCapim Talk

    and it feels like fucking hell !

  34. Josh Simeone

    Can't wait to see you in Manchester next month.. Hope you play some if the old songs as well

  35. Sjeedie

    God, this rocks !

  36. Anderson Moura

    BFS foda como sempre

  37. Almost Famous

    thank you fucking bfs to keep music fucking alive ! love from fucking israel !

  38. Gijs de Roij

    And now the song is over. And it feels like fucking hell.

  39. Ben Warman

    I wish the album was out today in the UK, then I could get it for my birthday tomorrow, oh well it will be worth the wait

  40. MusicHasMeAddicted
