Menzingers, The - Transient Love Lyrics




I used to lie to myself all the time
I was always over-reacting, screaming "I'm gonna die."
But now I'm five thousand miles from her head on my shoulder
From a night I spent sober screaming "I'm gonna die."

But all I ever wanted was to make things right
All I ever wanted was to make things right

Transient love, I was a ghost on your birthday
I was a runaway somewhere in a grave of mistake
Transient love, you should've seen the view from the pension
It made me think of things we never mention
The things we're too afraid to say

Like what if I spend the next few years
Just somewhere in some atmosphere
While you're at home with bills to pay
I hope it doesn't end this way

All I ever wanted was to make things right
All I ever wanted was to make things right
Over and over in my head, I've tried
But all I ever wanted was to make things right

    I used to lie to myself all the time
    I was always over-reacting, screaming "I'm gonna die."
    But now I'm five thousand miles from a head on my shoulder
    From a night I spent sober, screaming "I'm gonna die."

    But all I ever wanted was to make things right
    All I ever wanted was to make things right

    Transient love, I was a ghost on your birthday
    I was a runaway, somewhere in a grave of mistakes
    Transient love, you should've seen the view from the mansion 
    It made me think of things we never mentioned
    The things we're too afraid to say

    Like what if I spend the next few years
    Just somewhere in some atmosphere
    While you're at home with pills for pain
    I hope it doesn't end this way

    All I ever wanted was to make things right
    All I ever wanted was to make things right
    Over and over in my head I tried
    But all I ever wanted was to make things right

  5. Pop Counter Culture

    What if I spend the next few years just somewhere in some atmosphere?
    While you're at home with bills to pay
    I hope it doesn't end this way
    All I ever wanted was to make things right.


    Damn bruh.

    A Family Of One

    One of the best lyrics Greg’s ever written. Never fails to hit me like a ton of bricks.

  6. Long

    Good shit. That's all I have to say

  7. Mikey James

    They don't have a bad song in their whole catalog

    Pop Counter Culture

    Idk after the party is way over the top and cringey at times

    Legs Magee

    @Pop Counter Culture Shut the fuck up, Donny. You're out of your element.

    Pop Counter Culture

    @Legs Magee why you so mad bro?

    Legs Magee

    @Pop Counter Culture Fuck it dude, let's go bowling.

    I used to lie to myself all the time
    I was always over-reacting, screaming "I'm gonna die."
    But now I'm five thousand miles from a head on my shoulder
    From a night I spent sober, screaming "I'm gonna die."
    But all I ever wanted was to make things right
    All I ever wanted was to make things right

  9. Melyssa Marie

    What a beautiful piece of music ♡

  10. Tigerpuffer

    This song kinda grooves the way Killer Parties by The Hold Steady and The Ocean by Against Me! do. But at the same time, it stands alone as a great song. East coast, fuck yeah!

  11. soggy socks

    What a tune.

    dj mandela

    +DempseyTheBoss fuckn ae what a tune!

  12. inuk shuk

    KILLER PARTIES ALMOST KILLED ME...THE HOLD STEADY ALMOST KILLED MEEE....

  13. Santee Cruzer

    The guitar that kicks in the beginning reminds me of The Smashing Pumpkins

  14. Emma Prew

    This song sounds like nothing The Menzingers have ever done before, but to my ears it is a musical masterpiece and I can't get enough. I listened to Rented World throughout my trip to Japan last month and the line ‘five thousand miles…’ seemed pretty apt.

    Isaiah Meredith

    Totally agree with you. Its an amazing song and completely heartfelt.
