the canopy above my head is all i see another day another night i'm lying here falling asleep i sure hope that they do not think i'm lazy and i hope that they don't think that i'm a slob i hope that i don't make myself way too much at home i hope you care when i'm gone watch another movie play another song read another passage in the book spend another hour of just another day i hope i don't spend way too much time falling asleep i sure hope that you always know i'll miss you and i hope that when you sleep you're looking up cause when i rest i think of all those tired times and i can't sleep when you're gone those closed eyes remind me of what we have please don't open them yet.

    General CommentThis is on my top 10 for all time favorite The Juliana Theory songs. I think it's about him on a trip with all of his friends that he took to relax and to have a good time. But he doesn't want to feel to at home, cause he will have to leave soon. And he doesn't want them to think he is a slob, cause he does care about being there. And that he wants to just "watch another movie, play another song, read another passage in the book" before he goes, so he can take it all in one last time. I think it's also about time that he spent there with someone (tired times) and how he can only sleep when they were there. And he tells himself that he wants to remember all the good times, so please don't wake up yet. That's just me though. Truely poetic, must be why they are one of my favorite bands.

    General Commentit seems to me that he is on vacation with his pals but his girlfriend is at home and he misses her and wants her to keep busy so she wont feel so lonely.

    General Commenti kinda thought that he didnt want other people to think he was lazy and sloppy (i was thinking parents) but being on vacation sounds plausible, but still hes not trying to be listless, hes just missing his girl because she somewhere else. i dunno it reminded me of i guess i kinda gave it my own meaning...great song
