"Day For Night" as written by and Matthew Sweet....
What you gave me
I could feel it
Like the warm rays of the sun
Such a small thing
Took me farther
Then I'd been with anyone
What else can I tell you?
My life was simply very bright
So I traded the day for night

Well I love you
And I want you
You should know that anyway
Well I love you
And I want you
Doesn't mean I'll stay

And how much can I tell you
When my brain is terminally light
And so bright
That I traded the day for night

What else can I tell you?
My life is simply very bright
So I traded the day for night
I traded the day for night

    General CommentI think it's about somebody who was happy and content with life, so much so that be became jaded and negative. He kind of wonders what he did to deserve to be so happy and fulfilled and is so apprehensive about it all ending that he ends up becoming bitter and cynical. Of course, I could just be talking from experience here ;)
