This just in...where to begin
Grin and bear it, it's bear and grim
Adoration, titilation, I'm the victim now
Because she's figured me out
She lights my candle, she has a handle on me
It's going well but I'm scared as hell
That she'll figure me out
She thinks it's sacred to be naked
But I don't care, 'cause she's had me there
You see she's figured me out

And I wanna shout at the top of my lungs now
But oh my god, if she hears me she'll come running in...
These are my hands, these are my faults
These are my plans
These are my nasty little thoughs
I wrote 'em down for you to contemplate
at a later date

Well the word is out, what's it all about
Doubtless shady, no shadow of doubt
In moderation, this sensationwould be fabulous
But she's figured me out
She's in my shower for an hour
She's just washin' and wonderin'
And trying to figure me out...

It's a little bit of something that I feel...
Oh man, I just can't deal...
And other than this distance that has covered me
Can't you see that you have smothered me

Well, you're out there, just stay out there
Just when I was on to something else
That's when she figures me out

    General Commentstroke 9 is awesome, a little while back i met the guys and they are just the sweetest people. Luke is very very very sweet, and i was lucky enough to steal a kiss from him. ;), i think stroke 9 should get more recognition, they just rock

    General CommentI agree this song is a great song from the guys, this is like the ultimate "get happy" song...put this on and you cant not enjoy yourself....this whole CD is a great CD to put in the CD player and just go cruisin'

    kind of disappointing that most of the comments are only on the "radio songs"...seems like most of the people only know stroke 9 from the songs they hear on the radio...some fair-weather fans?! (no offense)

    as for the rest...keep on strokin' (hehe)

    General Commenti see it as a guy falling in love in a way he never expected. "She lights my candle, she has a handle on me
    It's going well but I'm scared as hell/That she'll figure me out" it's him coming to the reality that he's let his defense down. kind of a morning after prospective, where he finds out that "In moderation, this sensation would be fabulous
    But she's figured me out" and he's overcome, and sort of panicking that he's been "committed"

    General Commentmy friend got told by a guy that this song reminded him of her. funny story, but she plays it like crazy, so it just sorta stuck. i like it now, though not because i'm a fan of the band. actually i had never heard of them before my friend played it. heh.

    General Commentwow, guys. maybe I'm just like a crazily die-hard s9 fan or something, but that's not what the song is about. well i guess you could see it that way... but this is it. This song is about masturbation. He was pleasing himself, and his girlfriend walked in and caught him in the act. Now she's in his shower thinking about it, and he's waiting outside, and theres really thick tension in the air. He's trying to figure out what to say, so he writes a song for her to contemplate at a later date, to get her to understand.
