"Above You, Below Me" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
Don't want to give, Don't want to steal
Don't want to be anything I'm not
You take answers I give questions, like some rolling, monologue
Want to be the one to say, that today could be the day
A pity to believe in what you know is what you know

I will, take you as you are
Please accept me as I am
Find your lonely life bizarre
Know it's above you, I know it's below me

Always someone

Don't want to live, life in your shoes
Don't feel I know the way
Feeling you, giving me, directions I don't need
Up and up, and round we go
First it's fast and then we're slow
Could you connect with my intellect?

I won't take you as you are
Please don't take me as I am
Find your lonely life bizarre
You'll see this in love, you'll see this in li-ife

Hold an all-year-round reception
For a love with no connection
Knowing you, knowing my, ignorance to more than life
Know it's above you, I know it's below me

I will, take you as you are
Please accept me as I am
Find your lonely life bizarre
Know it's above you, I know it's below me

I will, take you as you are
Please accept me as I am
There'll be something in the wind
To show us we're right, and tell us we're wrong

I want to wake up

    General CommentI'm not too clear on it's meaning but i'm going to have a guess. I think the mans talking about a relationship that he misses and wants back but he knows it wont happen and theres good reasons why he shouldnt go back into it. "There'll be something in the wind
    To show us the light and tell us we're wrong". I think this si completely wrong probably but it's how i see it :D

    General CommentI think that maybe they were sort of mismatched and broke up but he wants her back.

    I will take you as you are
    Please accept me as I am
    Find your lonely life bizzare
    Know it's above you, I know it's below me

    General Commentthis song is about being parallel with someone, but not quite matching, never connecting.
    there's hope for it, but it's not there yet.
    it's a very relate-able song for me..he wants to be on the "level" with someone...picture him on a line 2 spaces above another line. love would likely occur if the two lines met, but it's just not working.

    the person he speaks to sounds like they can't accept that both of their lives are equal in value and experience, but are on quite opposite sides of the spectrum.
