"Jumping Around" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
Sometimes I feel like being young
Jumpin' around, jumpin' around
There can be a comfort in being loud (Marshall Stack loud)
Acting 'bout half my age
Everything's come a couple years late
I guess it's bad to complain
When everything's good, everything's great
Jump up, jump down
(Jump down)
Tired of jumping around
(Jumping around)
(Jump)
Today I realized I'm not so young
Jumpin' around (jumping around)
With the French star in front of me
So educated and well respected (well respected)
It can be embarrassing when you're this loud
So Marshall Stack loud
She covers her ears, and I'm here
And I'm a fool and not a bit proud
Jump up, jump down
(Jump down)
Tired of jumping around
(Jumping around)
How am I to find someone to settle down with? (Settle down)
What choices do I have?
I'm not educated, and I'm not respected
And what am I to do?
As the train leaves for Kendal Green
I can't come back to you
So, I send this music box to sleep to
Jump up jump down
(Jump down)
Tired of (tired of) jumping around
(Jumping around)
Jump up jump down
(Jump down)
Tired of (tired of) jumping around
(Jumping around)
(Jump up)
Short days and long nights
Short days and long nights
Seven more minutes please
Seven more minutes
Seven more minutes please
Seven more minutes

    General CommentI cried the first time i heard this song. Its so dark, beautiful and downright amazing. Matts voice sound so desperate, and the heavy synth just makes it all the better.

    General CommentYeah I like this song. That "isle of capri" shit at the end annoys me though.

    General CommentThis song is a little sad and a good closer to Seven More Minutes. It being the last Rentals song, period, is fitting. Matt went on to "grow up" in a way and made a solo album that is very sparse and acoustic. He realizes he's not a 23 year old anymore and just wants to settle down with the right person

    General CommentThe latest is that it's not the last Rentals song, period....they're reforming now, with a revised line up...or something
