you saw her on the 4:15 in a dowtown tuesday you wonder where she's heading to cause it's a little bit early her eyes reflect that she's on top of a whirlwind business blitz but as a matter of fact there's all too much of that because she's anyone anywhere you saw her leaving by the back on a frigid sunday you barely noticed as she passed because you always hurry now speeding off you trace the steps of an endless procession but as a matter of fact there's all to much of that because she's anyone anywhere you caught her on the 4:15 it's a payday friday you've gathered where she's heading to cause it's a little bit early again you wait to make your move to a conversation's birth but as a matter of fact there's all to much of that she's anyone anywhere.

    General CommentI think this song is saying not to procrastinate (wow, good word) doing something you have set your mind to. Because by the time you make your move to do it, it could all be gone.

    General CommentI dunno, I think maybe it's saying something like keep your eyes open because the one you're looking for in life is "anyone, anywhere" and you may see him/her a lot and not even know it. And you have to take risks, you can't sit there and contemplate whether or not to go up to the girl/guy. You have to take chances or you might lose them. I dunno though...

    General CommentI actually think that this is not one of their best songs lyrically, but I do love this song. "She's anyone, anywhere....." what exactly does that mean? I hate to sound stupid, but..... yeah. well, that's about it, except that I like the part "you barely noticed as she passed because you always hurry now. speeding off you trace the steps of an endless procession, but as a matter of fact there's all too much of that." I like that part because it's saying that he barely even noticed her this time because he's always in such a hurry. as in when you hurry through life, you pass certain things by. I dunno. it makes sense to me. I think I'm going to go post on Thursday now....

    General Comment" Variations on a theme " can actually be found in the collective journals of Sylvia Plath. Perhaps this is where the title comes from?
