We're busy touching till we're dizzy stupid. I am a puppy. A balloon and a happy accident. Missed she teaching me myths mistold. Hold me here dearest and turn me golden. And I watched you holding up the sun. I remember her saying, "this whole world is a waste of my time." And all I could say is, "I wish I had something to say." But we'll stand still long enough the sun will move around us. You can't look at the sky without looking right through it.

    General Commentthis song is so amazing. i will willingly admit to the fact that the emotion in it is so powerful it can make me cry sometimes. it's beautiful, and the words captivate me. everything about it screams me; sometimes i swear he wrote it for me.

    General CommentOh, awkwardness of young love and how unsure the whole world is when you're with someone you want.

    General CommentI've always though the whole segment ending with "I wish I had something to say" would be a great closing line for a movie or a novel. Most likely a movie. I wish someone had this idea too.

    anytime you're with anyone looking at the sky, it's necessary to quote this. because I said so, and it'll make you a cool kid.

    General CommentCap'n jazz would have to be my favorite band. Tsucol said it best, that one line gets to me every time.

    General Commentthese lyrics kick awesome, the only thing i want to add is there is a Braid song called Capricorn that ends the same way, with "can't look at the sky, with out looking right through it." i know braid and cap'n jazz were somehow "connected" to eachother, but I think Bob Nanna of Braid took that line and even how its sung and put it in it Capricorn. Am i right?
