wanted to remember my mica
You helped me again to think of the unthinkable things.
Made my arms hurt so bad I would happily forget.
You’re surprised at what you go through.
As if no one ever told you.
(On your own feet, your own feet stand.
Not to wallow in heart ache).
I’ve done more than I would like to.
But it’s not all that I can do.
(You gotta get out of bed, into it).
When even your bad luck runs out,
not to wallow in self-pitying pathetic dreams.
You know what I mean.
She worked hard to be his novice and then broke into his office.
(With her clothes off, her clothes off still.
Not to wallow in heart ache)
Amor, settle for a small dart if you can’t find it in your heart.
But there’s a big noise from her chest.
Let me do the talking, now that I’m here.
You’ll steal all the attention anyway.
‘cause something about you compels me to feel
that a glued together vase is still a vase.
(Not to wallow in heart ache)

    General CommentI always thought of Mica as a b*tch of a girl who never quite learned to grow up and become an adult. "Made my arms hurt so that I would happily forget"- she was in a relationship that was very unsteady because of the things she did. She is acting very shocked at the way her actions affect things and how life is basically giving her a slap in the face, although she had been warned of that. The guy is saying he's done so much for her to help, but it is of no use if she isn't willing to change. Now she's feeling sorry for herself and no one really seems to care. "She worked hard to be his novice and then broke into his office. With her clothes off, her clothes off still"- I think means that she's trying so hard to impress him, but it's such a pathetic and desperate attempt that he's just annoyed. Now we see the relationship begin to crumble, "a small dart" is to signify him trying to get her to care more about him and less about herself. "Let me do the talking, now that I’m here. You’ll steal all the attention anyway."- this always makes me think of them being in therapy- but I think it's actually the guy finally taking a stand against her and sticking up for himself. "‘cause something about you compels me to feel that a glued together vase is still a vase."- this line could have more than one meaning. Maybe he believes that even with all these troubles, he still cares for her and wants to make things work (vase= their relationship). Or it could be more of a humorous line to show him being fed up with her- that she thinks it's all over without trying to fix it, even when he's already tried to mend things, and so he's explaining that he really doesn't give a crud about what she thinks anymore.

    General Commenti interpret this song as... a girl growing up. and possibly not growing up fast enough. ['You’re surprised at what you go through. As if no one ever told you. On your own feet, your own feet stand] like she carries her immaturity through to her first few years working as a professional, and ends up falling for someone at work...? 'She worked hard to be his novice and then broke into his office.' though, here, it could also be that she is interning at the place in which she falls in love with.. whoever... 'there's a big noise from her chest/let me do the talking' could be something like her heart taking over and speaking for her.
    now that i think of it.. mica, being a mineral that flakes [breaks?] very easily, could be a reflection of her heart. 'a glued together vase is still a vase' her heart is still a heart, even after it has been broken.

    i think it means that, even though Mica might've been through some tough shit; everyone goes through the same things.

    one vase, even if it is just put together, is no different from any of the others.

    everyone is just as beautiful, mica just needs to open her eyes.
