Jimmy Eat World - Damage Lyrics




I want someone who lives up to this grandeur in my head
And you don’t do much to sell me I’d be best with you instead.
I hate the way I feel, but I don’t think I can change.
I just breathe you each day.

Are we only damaging the little we have left?
Both of us swimming in the same polluted mess.
Are we too damaged now to possibly connect?
To honestly connect?

A lot of time’s been wasted putting off doing the work.
If we both step up to own it then I’ll take what’s coming first.
Of everything you say, it’s the truth that really hurts.
But how could that be worse?

Are we only damaging the little we have left?
Both of us swimming in the same polluted mess.
Are we too damaged now to possibly connect?
To ever reconnect?

I’ll say when I’m ready.
You’ll know when I’m ready.
When I’m ready.
(are we only damaging, damaging)

Are we only damaging the little we have left?
Both of us swimming in the same polluted mess.
Are we too damaged now to possibly connect?
To honestly connect?

  5. LunchMeat

    I love her. She's my best friend. But she doesn't love me like she use too. And I want to continue how we are. I don't want to burn this bridge. But I don't want to force her into loving me. That would just be damaging. I want her to be my best friend still, but I feel so much more for her than that. It hurts.

  6. Aaron Phillips

    Travis: yes the chorus sounds similar to phil collins' can't stop loiving you chorus. i think?

    Brandon Cassidy

    @Aaron Phillips JEW better watch out, Phil Collins is gonna go all Marvin Gaye Jr. On their asses. Lmfao ;)  

    Edderward

    @Underneath Reality Im both a Phil Collins fan as a JEW fan. I recognize that: 'Are we only damaging' and 'Cause I can't stop loving you' are sung kind of the same way. But I must say, if no one said anything, I wouldnt have known it. Luckily for the music lovers there is a huge difference in the rithmic and instrumental melody Still funny though :P

    Karol Baňas

  14. josefvickers

    *Your punctuation sucks.

  15. idlekind

    Love this song! Anyone else notice that the "I'll say when I'm ready" part came from the Go Big Casino song "Ready" ?!

    aditya anshul

    I think there is a pattern here, in their track "Dizzy" from chase this light they talk about payphones, which might be a reference to futures.

  16. RBGVelvet

    Punctuation sucks.

  17. RBGVelvet
