"Yesterday's News" as written by and Wandscher Ryan Adams....
well traveling to the pointthat I, I can't stop it
get so familiar
never get enough
talk about it all the time
just drop it
damage on your pretty little eyes says it all
I can't stand to be under your wing
I can't fly or sink or swimit's a lot like falling downstanding up and I'm falling downyour my cup till I understand
wait a minute and see the pieces don't fit this time
well yesterday's news is what I have been reading
see you at the Comet and I end up needing
know if you were thinking it could have been
it was nothing it's cause nothing's what you did
I can't stand to be under your wing
I can't fly or sink or swimit's a lot like falling downstanding up and I'm falling downyour my cup till I understand
wait a minute and see the pieces don't fit this time
I can't stand to be under your wing
I can't fly or sink or swimit's a lot like falling downstanding u and I'm falling downyour my cup till I understand
wait a minute and see the pieces don't fit this time

    General Commentthis song was like my mantra for a while, which is interesting because i don't really know exactly what the end of the second verse means... but it seems right, and incredibly empowering (except for the parts about getting drunk until everything makes sense-- actually come to think of it i probably should have picked a better mantra...)

    General CommentClearly about a guy that has a girl that strung him along and he has/is convincing himself of the futility of the situation. The first verse means he would fall for her bad but there was something she was witholding, commitment or *ahem*. The last 2 lines of the chorus clarify this, he keeps up with her over and over and then its clear it won't work out, the whole thing about filling his cup has a second meaning besides a booze refrence. The second verse refers to a time or the times when he sees her at a place (probably a bar, club or coffee shop) and just seeing her, wants her, and thinks to himself that if she thinks it didn't turn out it was because of something she withheld.
