"Everything Hits At Once" as written by and Daniel Britt....
Don't say a word
The last one's still stinging
Back on my mind
I feel that phone ringing
And there is no way back from this

Everything hits at once
What we need is just what we want
I go to sleep but think that you're next to me
I go to sleep and think you're next to me

Don't make a move
When I walk out don't follow me
Out in the car
Can feel it calling me
And ooh I would love to stay

But I can still change my mind tonight
I gotta change my mind somehow
I go to sleep alone but think that you're next to me

Everything hits at once tonight
Outside is all lit up with lights
In traffic we become on the way back home
Part of something bigger than just on our own

I gotta change my mind tonight
I can still change my mind tonight
Merging in traffic cross the lanes and then we become
Something bigger than just anyone
Oh and everything hits at once
What we need is just what we want
I go to sleep and think that you're next to me
I go to sleep and think that you're next to me

    General CommentI have this album, and I swear that the words I hear in the second verse are "ooh, I would love to stay", but live, they sing the other lyrics, and in the video they do, as well. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Does anyone else have this problem?!

    General Commentthis song seems to be speaking to that relationship that gets problems, and things try to change as someone as always left holding the bag.

    General CommentLyrically, this is definitely one of Spoon's best and most mature songs, along with "Paper Tiger" and "Chicago at Night".

    Spoon rocks the Casbah, especially live!

    General Commentit's hard to pick the best off GCT, but it may be this one. the mellotron & the lyrics & his voice are just way out of league of basically ALL other rock music. but then again, the whole album is just way ahead of anything else out there made today.
