"The Doctor And The Dj" as written by and Mark Bianchi....
a drink for one
is never fun
a sip deadens the pain
she's sick of games and learning names
she puts her black book away
she scans the place for a friendly face
suddenly everythings changed
he took a chance on romance
without even knowing her name
knowing her name

so he moved in
on a whimb
and now her house is there home
she forgets the days
of the drunken haze
and waiting by the phone
they lie in bed
with nothing said
as the gently fall asleep
he thinks about how life would be
if they didn't meet

the doctor and the DJ
took it all in stride
i hope that she knows
she'll make a beautiful bride...

it's funny how
life can change
at the drop of a dime
all it takes is a little faith
and everything is fine
so i raise my glass to better times
i'm glad that i didn't miss
my chance to see
and to misery

the doctor and the DJ
took it all in stride
i hope that she knows
she'll make a beautiful bride...

    General CommentI can relate a lot to most of the lyrics in this song at the moment.
    'a drink for one
    is never fun
    a sip deadens the pain
    she's sick of games and learning names
    she puts her black book away'
    This, for me, represents just trying to settle down and get away from this huge life you once loved to lead. Sometimes I think it might be best to stop meeting new people, pretending i like them and having to remember their faces. I just want to know real people.
    'she scans the place for a friendly face
    suddenly everythings changed
    he took a chance on romance
    without even knowing her name
    knowing her name'
    life changes.

    General CommentI don't know, maybe I'm taking this song too literal, but the "putting the black book away" part makes me think maybe she was a prostitute? I suppose you could also take it as that she's been in and out of relationships, thinking about the learning names part. I'm not for sure. It's obviously generally about a woman who was very depressed and had a difficult life, and a man ended up sweeping her off her feet and marrying her. It turned out to be the best thing they both ever did, by the sounds of it.

    I think it really adds to this song that the singer mentions the misery as well as the happiness to come. You always appreciate love more when you've had nothing but misery in the past.

    About the title, is there some kind of hidden meaning or does it just happen to be their professions? If it's their professions, I guess my prostitute idea is out.

    Curious..

    Lyric Correctioni'm pretty sure instead of "and to misery" its "an end to misery"
