Sir, I want to punch you in the mouth.

Right in the feels. I like the band, but "that's a good idea, break a promise to your mother" is pretty far from a good lyric.

I realize that the guitar riff is pretty repetitive in the original, but it never bothered me until I heard this cover. The way he plays it feels so stilted. I had to shut it over a minute in.

Yeah, i feel like people that say they don't like Jenkin's lyrics haven't really dug very deep into their discography.

I really haven't, but based off of the songs I have heard, it just felt like the lyrics were an afterthought

The lyrics are the most important to Jenkins. He constantly delays albums because he wants the lyrics to be perfect. "Never let you go" is probably the weakest lyrically by him. There are other songs though like "Motorcycle Driveby", "God of wine", "Wounded" and "Slow Motion" that all have fantastic lyrics. Even some of their more popular songs like "Semi-charmed life", "Blinded", and "Jumper" have great lyrics. The melodies are just so catchy that the lyrics aren't really at the forefront.
