Menzingers, The - Portland Lyrics




We're two strings shaking in a minor chord
We're survivors of life but we're prisoners of war
It was recklessness, what we came here for
Started on the bed ended up on the floor
We're two strings shaking in a minor chord

Oh Allison I love you, but I can't change the past

Bring the part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back

You wake up shaking in the middle of the night
A voice from the past back looking for a fight
Seize your sorrow, breathe with me
The pause between is all we need
They say it hurts 'til it doesn't

You said "the future is unwritten, let the past stay in the past"

Bring the part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back
Cheap champagne and roses
I know one day you'll notice
Bring the part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back
Bring the part of me you love back
The part of me you love back

    This album and the last I didnt like the first listen. But both times on the second time listening to them I loved them and have had each on repeat. Every album they have made has been amazing

    [Verse 1]
    We're two strings shaking in a minor chord
    We're survivors of life but we're prisoners of war
    It was recklessness, what we came here for
    Started on the bed ended up on the floor
    We're two strings shaking in a minor chord
    Oh Allison I love you, but I can't change the past

    [Chorus]
    Bring the part of me you love back
    Bring the part of me you love back
    The part of me you love back
    Bring the part of me you love back
    The part of me you love back
    [Verse 2]
    You wake up shaking in the middle of the night
    A voice from the past back looking for a fight
    Seize your sorrow, breathe with me
    The pause between is all we need
    They say it hurts til it doesn't
    You said "the future is unwritten, let the past stay in the past"

    [Outro Chorus]
    Bring the part of me you love back
    Bring the part of me you love back
    The part of me you love back
    Bring the part of me you love back
    The part of me you love back
    Cheap champagne and roses
    I know one day you'll notice
    Bring the part of me you love back
    Bring the part of me you love back
    The part of me you love back

    I didn't think they'd be able to follow "After the Party." It's one of my all-time favorite albums, it has songs that take me back to places a thousand miles away and back to a different lifetime. "After the Party" is undoubtedly one of the best albums I've ever heard and I didn't think The Menzingers could ever again touch greatness the way they did with that one.


    Then they started dropping singles from "Hello Exile," and I found myself in that unique, wonderful position of hearing my new favorite songs for the first time. I haven't heard a single song from this album that I HAVEN'T loved right off the bat. The Menzingers' spot as my favorite band is officially solidified.

    I'd heard some stuff from the Menzos before After the Party. However I really gave AtP a comprehensive listen and I've been hooked on them ever since. I love that record. Banger after banger.

    The writing on this record is so much more mature and heartfelt. While it doesn't sound as polished or mixed as well as AtP, there's no denying this record is a fucking standout in their catalogue. Hello Exile and I Can't Stop Drinking are standouts for me, as well as the singles.

    Same here man. I liked "ATP" but I fell in love "Exile".
