"T.V. Family" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
Just a calendar day (ba ba ba ba)
Its funny how things can stay the same
Or drastically change
Some things seem so close on some days but still so far away
Don't know the right tings to do (ba ba ba ba)
In fact I don't have a clue sometime I feel like a tool
And I want to be truthfully true to you
And do all the things that you do
But when I hate everything about the mean things that I say
It feels like I mess up so much and I can only say
"I hate everything about my ways"
But you tell me I'm OK
And one day one day I know you'll say

"B I'm so glad you made it"
"oh well Jesus thank you so much for saying that"
Because the truth you know is that I have just been hating so many things I do
But now I realize forever that you're my friend
No matter what you will never leave me to fend
I don't know much but I know we will be
As happy as a 195o's TV family
Except times infinity

Two calendar days (ba ba ba ba)
And still my life is the same
And other people's have changed
I wonder what if I'm too late
All the time that I said I would wait?
And yeah does anyone care
About us here or anywhere?
Well I just want to try and dare
To be there, to care cause I know, I know that's rare
But when I hate everything about the mean things that I say
It feels like I mess up so much and I can only say
"I hate everything about my ways"
But you tell me I'm OK
And one day one day I know you'll say

"B I'm so glad you made it"
"oh well Jesus thank you so much for saying that"
Because the truth you know is that I have just been hating so many things I do
But now I realize forever that you're my friend
No matter what you will never leave me to fend
I don't know much but I know we will be
As happy as a 195o's TV family
Except times infinity

A family that I will be in
A family its just not pretend
A family that I will be in, a family

I don't know much but I know we will be
Happy as a 1950"s TV family..
Except times infinity
Just a calendar day.

    General Commenti think i know what he was thinking when he wrote this, cause i think i feel it too. funny how some songs are like that, like every word you can relate to. i think hes in some sort of depression that he caused himself, because he doesnt like himself or anything he does. he thinks the things he does are horrible but he has that one special person that makes him feel alright. when hes down the person tells him hes not like he thinks he is, that he is something more, something special. this song is a thank you to that special person, because without that person he wouldnt be where he is today, or maybe not even be there today...

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, much like every other Rocket Summer song I've heard, and it is my favorite song on the Calender Days album. It reminds me of one of my best friends, because either when he's feeling down, or I'm feeling down, one of us will say, "I hate the way I am," and the other will say, "Don't say that, I'm glad you're here." Something along those lines.

    It's basically saying something like even if you hate yourself, someone out there still loves you, and just knowing that one person love you is enough to make you happy "as a 1950s TV Family, except times infinity." >w
