"Show Me The Way" as written by Wardell Jr. Potts, Joseph Charles Gallo and Susan Pomerantz....
I wonder how you're feeling
There's ringing in my ears
And no one to relate to except the sea
Who can I believe in?
I'm kneeling on the floor
There has to be a force
Who do I phone?
The stars are out and shining
But all I really want to know

Oh won't you show me the way
I want you show me the way

Well, I can see no reason,
You living on your nerves
When someone drops a cup and I submerge
I'm swimming in a circle,
I feel I'm going down
There has to be a fool
To play my part
Someone thought of healing,
But all I really want to know

Oh won't you show me the way
I want you show me the way
I want you day after day

I wonder if I'm dreaming
I feel so unashamed
I can't believe this is happening to me
I watch you when you're sleeping
And then I want to take your love

Oh won't you show me the way
Oh won't you show me the way
I want you day after day
I want you day after day
Oh won't you show me the way
I want you day after day

    General Commentthis osng has a double meaning. it's about a guy whoese in love, but that's only half of it
    he's also needing advice cause he's lost his way. and he wants the girl to show him how to be alive again. he also wants her to show hm how to be with her

    My InterpretationWow, this song is a tangle of complicated emotions. Sounds like a guy who is overwhelmed with the craziness that his life has become. He feels like he is being sucked down, as in a whirlpool, his nerves are shredded, he needs someone to stop the craziness and tell him what to do. Sometimes it even sounds like a desperate prayer. Fabulous song, all-time fave Frampton!

    General CommentThe song is about him losing his virginity.

    I wonder if I'm dreaming
    I feel so unashamed
    I can't believe this is happening to me

    He doesn't know what to do...she needs to show him how.

    And MGD, it is Dinosaur Jr, not sonic youth. It is sonic youth, not somic youth. And it is watermelon, not watermellon.
