The Girl's a Straight-Up Hustler Lyrics

Lipstick has a way of leaving, 
more than just a mark on my sheets,
coloring my senses cherry red
at least for this week
Kisses under starry night skies, 
talked about in song, we play along, 
so bitter sweet, by our design.
I'm sick and...

    I honestly have no idea whether or not this was written for a girl one of them dated. it most likely was, since all the songs they write come from the heart. this is just my interpretation of the song: :)

    " Lipstick has a way of leaving, 
    more than just a mark on my sheets,
    coloring my senses cherry red
    at least for this week "
    this means that, ofcourse, he and the girl were having sex and her "lipstick" isn't just a mark, it reminds him of her and what they did. 

    " Kisses under starry night skies, 
    talked about in song, we play along, 
    so bitter sweet, by our design "
    he wrote other songs about their nights together, when the relationship made him happy. but after a while he was just pretending because he realized she's not who he thought she was. 

    " I'm sick and tired of,
    writing songs about you,
    This is it, this is the end "
    he's tired of everything she put him through and is saying it's the end of their relationship.

    [chorus]
    " Take off the makeup 
    and put down the camera,
    choke on the drama that makes me want to,
    tear up the pictures, 
    the pages you saved,
    creating a life of,
    trends and make believe "
    he's telling her to stop pretending to be someone she's not, that all the drama she caused makes him want to forget all their memories. he wants to stop living a lie. 

    " I've got no place in my heart 
    for a criminal like you to dwell in
    this endeavor, make this last forever
    I'm just delirious,
    You can't be serious,
    You're so infamous,
    for leaving me a mess "
    he doesn't want her to be in his life if all she's gonna do is hurt him. 
    everyone expected her to hurt him and mess him up really bad, which she did. 

    [chorus]

    " She gets what she wants 
    and she breaks what she gets,
    get out while you can 
    or she'll tear you to pieces " [4x]
    she can get any guy she wants and once she does, she messes him up. 
    he is warning future guys to stay away from her or they'll regret it. 

    [chorus]

    " Carry on home,
    I'll be waiting miles and miles away
    leaving you to be,
    forever seventeen
    cleaning up the messes that you've made "
    he's telling her to go home and that he's leaving her. 
    she's going to remain the way she is,
    and now that he's broken up with her, she'll have to take care of herself. she can no longer depend on the guys she uses. she has to either fix herself up or deal with a guy being the one to dump her. 

    hope this helps! :) 
    I love this song sooo much its my favorite song by them and I absolutely love all time low, they are my favorite band. :D 
    if you don't like this song then something's wrong with you - NP
    :)
