[My older addiction. I can go weeks without but only a glance is enough to fall.]

For Justin*
[Dashboard Confessional – Drowning EP*
]
“It’s been a year now since you were here now
And I’ve been trying to heal inside
Dedications of how I placed
And I see your resemblance in my face
And on our birthday I said an extra wish for you (for you)*

And I have learned so much since you been gone
And I have done so little for so long
So now I’ll settle up my grievances
And focus on the savory
And wave all these discrepancies away
And I’ll figure out these misconceptions
Give out faith at my discretion
Live a life that you would think was sane (sane)

Displaying changes
That they have made
And I wonder if you really wanted it this way
And in your memory they even hung a plaque for you (for you)

And I have learned so much since you been gone
And I have done so little for so long.
So now I’ll settle up these grievances
And focus on the savory
And wave all these discrepancies away.
And I’ll figure out these misconceptions
Give out faith at my discretion
Live a life that you would think was sane (sane)”

* Chris Carrabba used to be in a band called Further Seems Forever before he started Dashboard Confessional. The name for the new band came from the song “The Sharp Hint of New Tears”, that contains the phrase “On the way home/This car hears my confession” on the lyrics.

* Justin was a cousin of Chris who died while they were young; this is one of few stories known about DC lyrics.

* The title of this EP is the reason why some people tend to believe that Justin drown. But there is another a theory that says that Justin died on a car accident. Those three song were written in 1998, but only recorded in 2001.

* Justin and Chris celebrated birthdays at the same day. That’s the reason for this line.

* The songs on this EP are rarely played on concerts. Some believe that the deep meaning behind it is the reason why Carrabba don’t play or talk about than much.
