Album: Your Favorite Weapon (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jesse Lacey wrote this in tribute to a Victoria's Secret model named "Laetitia."

The only brokenhearted loser you'll ever need, or I'll be left alone forever with my magazines." >>

  • Vamps from Indianalove the song, and at least now i can know what tf im singing along to xD
  • Jssmchh_rawr from Fayetteville, Nchah, i always wondered where he got the name latetia. hahaha. i agree, that "girl come to me, the only brokenhearted loser, you'll ever need. or i'll be left alone forever with my magazines" is pretty corny, but i think that brand new is the only band that could really pull that off. their lyrics are sometimes cliche, and often very simple, but with a bigger meaning behind them that you have to really think to understand.
  • Chris from Milwuakee, Wi"Laetitia you've got my hand shaking" wonder what Jesse was doin in his "Dead Bedroom"????
  • Damon from Seeley Lake, Mt"Girl, come to me, the only broken-hearted loser you'll ever need, or I'll be left alone forever with my magazines."
    This line comes off as both completely corny yet innocent and sincere. It kills me.
  • Damon from Seeley Lake, MtThis song is great. I LOVE brand new. Its awesome that they can right the deepest lyrics youve ever heard then turn right around a deliver this funny schoolboy homage to a supermodel. This song cracks me up.
