"The Party" as written by and Timothy Z./charlot Mosley....
She bought a bottle of cider
From the shop on the corner
They didn't stop her
Thought she was older

She took a bus ride
To a name and a number
A house full of music
And a hatful of wonder

And some of the people
That she thought that she knew
Were never like this
When she saw them at school
She's never been anywhere like this before
Everybody's so out of control

She was in a back room
Full of strange aromas
And noises and candles
That was where he found her

He took her to a garden
Full of rain and silence
And she could smell the soil and the trees
And see the succulent light from the little fires in his eyes
Pulling shapes out of the night
She was enchanted

Then it's twelve o'clock
And the last bus is gone
They're gonna go crazy
When they hear what she's done
And higher is lower
And less is like more
She's never felt anything like this before,

And then it was yesterday
He said, "Oh, by the way"
"Welcome to your first party"

    General CommentIts the morning after song. She's young, its her first party and transforms into her first time getting laid...It was exciting at the time and thats captured in the sights, smells and sounds described here...The next day she's not sure if she likes what happened.That weird feeling you get when you're young thats all part of growing up...Thats not particularly reflected in the lyrics but the tone of the music at the end says it all brilliantly...Tales off thoughtfully and you can imagine this young girls confused emotions at the time...Perhaps the guy forced himself on her?

    General CommentI meant to say at first "she was enchanted" then the guy took advantage of the situation.
