sitting out on your house
watching hardcore ufo's
drawing pictures, playing solos til ten

are you amplified to rock?
are you hoping for a contact?
i'll be with you, without you, again

turn and run, the angel's calling
you say when and i say i'm falling
up and down through broken down buildings
back and forth but please don't bother at all

count the days that we have wasted from the start
speak the words and build a playground
in your head

turn and run, the angel's calling
you say when and i say i'm falling
up and down through broken down buildings
back and forth but you know why i left you for so long
you know why i left you for so long...

    General CommentFor me, this song is about reminiscing about just wasting time with a best friend back when you were a kid. Bob employs the metaphor of an alien analogy for the long absence in the relationship when they grew up.

    General CommentI agree el d4nt3, about childhood. Hanging out a friend in the kind of relationship, you have with someone, that is basically family but something more special. I think it’s harder to get that as you grow up, you start to get involved in your own things, more self obsessed, less time to just hang out with people. I guess you often lose that closeness. ‘I’ll be with you, without you, again.’
    Wasting an entire day just talking to someone, or listening to music, or just hanging round at their house that’s special and not always even something that exciting, but something that sticks with you, always.
    ‘you know why I left you for so long...’ I don’t know if this means things can’t last, or that even as you spend every waking second with someone, you still grow apart, and you still hurt each other. There is something obsessive and intense in any close relationship, something that makes you love and hate and just feel things, so hard.

    General CommentThe song is about young love, and how some of us don't grab on and hold tight to that love, but instead let go and explore the world, only to discover that young love was the deepest and purest we would ever know. And all that time apart exploring the world it meant very little without that person by our side. And with that realization we are now wondering, are they thinking of me, the way I'm thinking of them? And we are wondering, are they hoping I'll reach out to them, from as far away as outer space, it might seem. Because after all this wasted time without them, we realize they are the only one who gives our life meaning.

    Yes, like Dorothy's ruby red slippers, happiness is found within. But there are a few happy couples in the world who prove that when you are with the right person, your happiness doubles, and your troubles are halved. When you are with someone who loves you as much as they love themselves. when you are with someone who needs you as much as you need them.

    The fear that still needs to be faced is why you ran away in the first place: loving someone that deeply means you might lose them. And then what would you do?
