  • I'm gonna make you bend and break (It sent you to me without wait)
    Say a prayer, but let the good times roll
    In case God doesn't show (Let the good times roll, let the good times roll)

    And I want these words to make things right
    But it's the wrongs that make the words come to life
    Who does he think he is?
    If that's the worst you got, better put your fingers back to the key

    One night and one more time
    Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
    He tastes like you, only sweeter
    One night, yeah and one more time
    Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
    See, he tastes like you, only sweeter, oh oh oh oh

    Been looking forward to the future
    But my eyesight is going bad
    In this crystal ball
    It's always cloudy except for (except for)
    When you look into the past (look into the past)
    One night stand
    (One night stand oh)

    One night and one more time
    Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
    He tastes like you, only sweeter
    One night, yeah, and one more time
    Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
    See, he tastes like you, only sweeter, oh

    (They say)
    I only think in the form of crunching numbers
    In hotel rooms, collecting page six lovers
    Get me out of my mind
    Get you out of those clothes
    I'm a liner away
    From getting you into the mood
    Whoa

    One night and one more time
    Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
    He tastes like you, only sweeter
    One night, yeah, and one more time
    Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
    See, he tastes like you, only sweeter, oh

    (One night, one more time)
    One night and one more time
    Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great
    He tastes like you, only sweeter
    One night, yeah, and one more time
    (One night, one more time)
    Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories
    See, he tastes like you, only sweeter oh oh oh Writer/s: Andrew John Hurley, Joseph Mark Trohman, Patrick Martin Stump, Peter Lewis Wentz

  • Tucker from New YorkThe song name is actually lampshading their overuse of overly long song titles, hence the dropping of letters from words from 'Thanks For The Memories' to 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.'
  • Hannah from Gustavus, OhIt sounds like it could be about the narrator physically "taking advantage" of someone who is extremely close to them but doesn't reciprocate lust that's been built up over a period of time. "And I want these words to make things right, but it's the wrongs that make the words come to life" = The "words" could be, of course, "I love you" or something similar, and the "wrongs" are the physical actions of the narrator ("taking advantage" of the friend). They're justifying the action by saying they love the person as a friend, but acknowledging the lust (the other way "I love you" could be taken) would be greatly intensified during the act. The explosive energy of the choruses suggests the climactic moment. "Been looking forward to the future, but my eyesight is going bad, and this crystal ball is always cloudy except for when you look into the past" is the narrator realizing how guilty and possibly ashamed they are of what happened, now realizing the friendship may not last (the "future" is the future of the friendship) and that hindsight is 20/20 (it's "always cloudy except for when you look into the past"). "My eyesight is going bad" may also represent the narrator's reluctance to acknowledge wrongdoing or denial that the friendship will be affected.
  • Adrien S. from C-wood, Cahmm well my view on this is that you are all right. lol 1.)It is a great song, its very easy to listen to over and over. 2.)It is about drugs yes. 3.) The element of drugs in the song probably also led to the references to sex in the song. And at some parts yes it does sound a bit homosexual (thts not a bad thing ppl!!) if you have a dirty mind. (and thankfully i do lol)
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlLove this song, and I care Paquita :D
  • Hannah from Gustavus, OhI agree with Adri about drugs. Here's my analysis of the parts of the song that relate to this theory: "I'm gonna make you bend and break"

    - Drugs made him bend and break; "Say a prayer, but let the good times roll, In case God doesn't show" - Pray you don't OD but have fun

    if you don't (if God doesn't take you); "And I want these words to make things right, but it's the wrongs that make the words come to

    life" - He's telling people he'll quit doing drugs, but the fact he's doing them is what gives the words meaning. "Who does he think he is" -

    Perhaps about a father figure or someone else who is telling him not to do drugs.
    As for the chorus, "One night and one more time" - He's telling himself this will be the LAST night he'll do drugs (e.g. "I can quit whenever

    I want."); "Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great" - He's telling the drug goodbye, but reminding himself the

    effects were dangerous; "He tastes like you, only sweeter" - Freedom tastes like drugs only sweeter. The second part of the chorus is

    identical to the first, but he repeats "Thanks for the memories," possibly to firmly tell himself the drugs are gone.
    "Looking forward to the future, But my eyesight is going bad" - He's thinking of what he wants to do with his life but is losing sight of

    his goals because of the drugs; "And this crystal ball, Is always cloudy except for when you look into the past" - You never know the

    drug's true consequences until after the fact. "One-night stand...One-night stand off" - His addiction leads him into a one-night stand, after

    which he battles himself about quitting drugs.
    "I only think in the form of crunching numbers" - Refers to either a.) Losing money to support his habit or b.) Actually weighing drugs

    and dealing with the money; "In hotel rooms" - Doing drugs in hotel rooms to sort of cover his tracks; "Collecting Page Six lovers" -

    Reference to using rolled-up magazine pages to snort cocaine through.
    The drug references go away in the end of the breakdown, but come back in the repeated choruses, which are sung with a feeling of force

    and anguish, and the final power chord, which sounds like he's giving up.
    It's one of my favorite Fall Out Boy songs. I've always loved the band for their deep lyrics.
  • Adri from Christchurch, New CaledoniaThis song isn't about sex.It'saboutdrugs and pete wentz's past addictions andhow hard it was for him to quit while still being involved in the world that has a high drug rate (the music industry.
  • Nyasia from Baltimore, Mdi love fall out boy!!! im in 8th grade and all my black freinds(im black) say that i am the whitest black gurl that they have ever met lol. but i dont care i still love'em!!!
  • Paquita from Milwaukee, WiKayla, you say you know the words? I'm with you on that one, and probably same with everyone else here that posted. Hahahaha I know all of the words to about 25 FOB songs, at least :p.

    I have no life. Why is that, you may ask?
    One: I know 25 complete lyrics to FOB songs, at least.
    Two: I'm on this site posting this.
    Three: I'm on this site posting this thinking someone will read this.
    Four: I'm on this site posting this thinking someone will read this and actually care :D.
  • Taylor from Kelowna, CanadaFall Out Boy is pretty cool, and I love this song, its awesome i just never really understood what it meant, but know i kinda do, its still an awesome song!
  • Jr from Cant Remember, NeActually this song is about having sex with a dude and u can tell by how he talks about god not being part of the situation and the part where he said "he taste like you only sweeter" that states that he is telling his ex-girl/guy who knows that he's found new love with a weiner.
  • Whitney from Spanish Fork, UtI also think this song is about sex on the road, like with groupies and such
  • Austin from Smallsville, NeP.E.T.A was angry out fall out boy for using animals in the vidio. P.s Fall out boy is just a boy band and Pete is a terrible bassist.
  • Gabe from Borger, Txlove this song. the tom-tom solo is so simple, but GREAT! i cant wait to play this on my drum set that i am gonna get for my birthday on friday.
  • Brett from Sydney, AustraliaThe reason the song has no vowels in it is not only so it looks like something you would send in a SMS message, but also because the record company told fall out boy that their song titles were too long, so they removed the vowels to be smart about it
  • Kayla from Port Orcard, WaThis song is played on the radio too much, but I love it.
    I know every word by heart.
  • Shane from Kent, EnglandSo good still want Pete'z Hair and yet no gay, and all of the songs on there are good...

    Would like to know where the lyrics "bloodcells pixelate and eyes dialate" come from though all of the lyrics from that song sound sick(good not gross) :)
  • Camel from Somewhere, CaIn the line "collecting page six lovers" he's refering to a very well known gossip page of the new york post, which of course is page six.


    Btw, fobr boardies PWN.
  • Dj from Winchester, VaI love this song. The Chimpanzees are awesome! I love monkeys. i love the music.
  • Jailene from K-town, WaI love this song, although the music video kind of creeped me out, cuz I have this thing about monkeys...I had this really creepy dream once and I haven't like monkeys since. So yeah...GREAT song and I will definitely have to go buy their CD now...this is one of the only songs of theirs I've heard and I am DEFINITELY hooked!
  • Linda from Ranger, GaI love the chimpanzees in the video. Bravo, little music industry producer chimps! Bedroom scene was a bit creepy though.
  • Krissy from Boston, MaThis is such a good song. i absolutely love it.
  • Morgan from Gresham, Ori love this song, i love the like seriousness about it, its hard to explain but its kind of one of those songs where it makes u want to run, or yell...but thats probly cuz im just always mad at some1. lol
  • Ali from Wine, CaWhen I got the CD i wondered why it came up onto iTunes with all of its vowels.

    and im also wondering why there arent more comments considering how many people said that this song was the best song on the CD, and i know i might not be the biggest fan of Fall Out Boy...but am a fan.
    they have...such a sound. I mean, most of their songs sound so different, but its the fact that any of their songs can play and people can say, "thats DEFINITLY fallout boy", just like bands like PATD. i love that.
  • Anne from Chicago, Ilawesome awesome awesome, but not soo good live...
