  • Marianne from Kimberley,Drums in this song is insane...
  • Mike from Boston, Mai think this song is about someone who is in love with their best friend's girlfriend.
  • Kayley from Manchester, EnglandCat like theif is the best song that Boxcar Racer ever did, Tim Armstrong isnt a fantastic singer but it makes the song different to all the others on the album, I absolutly love this song, everytime i hear it i just HAVE to turn it up....
    Its a shame Boxcar Racer only made 1 album, that album is cool,
    What was Tom thinking? Why stop Boxcar racer for AVA????? BOXCAR ARE SO MUCH BETTER!!!
    Coming back when word is that shes gone, cat like theif she stole air from my lungs, leave me standing on this lonely grave, i dont get out incase she turns away!
    L O V E IT !
  • Mike from Louiservillagepoo, Inwow i like this song but tim armstrong i guess you said his name was is really a terrible singer in my opinion other than that the song is good
  • Luke from Worthing, EnglandThe singer at the start is Tim Armstrong, founding member of such bands as Operation Ivy, Rancid and the Transplants. Read the album credits.
  • Violet from Baltimore, MdI like the person singing in the beginning. I'm not sure who it is but their voice is really different and it has a cool sound to it. However I think Tom's voice sounds better for the song and the two voices don't really mix well in one song.
  • Sariah from Pheonix, Azi love this song, boxcar racer is the best band out there to bad they werent a band very long they made some good stuff
  • Simon from Salisbury, EnglandDespite it's simplicity, this is a musical masterpiece.
  • Y from Poop, Canadacrashaith
  • Mandy from Amsterdam, NetherlandsThis song is beautiful. I especially like Tom's singing part.
