The beautiful TIA boys have done it again!

The amazing lyrics of William Beckett leave you with goose bumps after hearing this song a must have for all TIA and fueled by ramen fans. It is a truely beautiful song and a real credit to their genius for song writing and I hope to see them come to Australia some time soon. Well done guys (I'd do anything for a name like sisky).

Beautifully written

TAI did come to Australia last year to support Panic At The Disco, i wanna see them again! I just love listening to Billy Becketts voice, this song makes me cry, it is so beautiful, beautiful lyrics Billy, you are my favourite writer.
