sometimes at night
i watch the mice cross the kitchen floor
i used to think they came from the fireplace
but they come in under the pantry door
i get so close i can touch them all
on the nights i wait up for your call

the landlord asks if we've seen 'em
she'll set traps, but i just spring 'em
my roommates say we should kill them all
but they'll stay up with me
the nights you never call
on those nights you never call

    General CommentPerhaps the best CFTPA song of them all?
    Fantastically sad lyrics and a matching melancholic melody to top it off.
    Keylyrics: "my roommates say we should kill them all
    but they'll stay up with me
    the nights you never call
    on those nights you never call"

    General CommentI agree with AmINotYours? on both accounts :-P.

    This is a song about turning lemons into lemonade, metaphorically speaking. The narrator persistently waits for this person of importance to call him, so he waits up for them. While in the act, he actually grows a close relationship with these vermin in his apartment, almost hinting that the person who never calls is lesser for neglecting him. Very clever, very deep, and an overall great song.
