    I love the contrast of the upbeat melody and sad lyrics. "Now I do as I please and I lie through my teeth/Someone might get hurt, but it won't be me/I should probably feel cheap, but I just feel free/And a little bit empty..." is one of the most poignantly depressing and beautiful verses I've ever heard in a song. Conor is so brilliant with words. And when I got to see this performed live, his dancing was totally on point.

    Now I do as I please and I lie through my teeth. Someone might get hurt but it won't be me. Should probably feel cheap but I just feel free, and a little bit empty <3 [2] From here to the end of the song is pretty amazing.

    7 years ago I sat by my computer all night reading people's interpretations of my favorite song at the time, and i ended up crying because its depressing as fuck. 7 years later... i couldnt relate to it more.

    everything is as it's always been; this never happened. don't take it too bad, it's nothing you did- just once something dies, you can't make it live.

    the coda is pure pop ecstasy. I love it so much, but I'm jealous, I wish I'd written it...
