"Radio Adelaide" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
"you'll never see a straight face from me
I've got a problem showing emotion
And sucking up my guts

you'll never get an answer from me
I always keep it stuck in my head
A million words I could have said

you say you're so overwhelmed with grief
And it's because of me

don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me
Don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me

I'll never show you my frustrations
I'll act accordingly to hold it back
I find it hard to just relax

please disregard my opinion
I try to only care when I'm asked
It helps to get off my chest

you say you're so overwhelmed with grief
And it's because of me

so,

don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me
Don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me

the point has been right in front of you, in plain view
The past it does not only repeat
It haunts you,
I can't
Get you the words you said out of my head
Out of my head

don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me
Don't you say, you know I heard you said you know
Don't you say, you know anything about me"

    General Commentwhoa..i like this song. what makes me tick is that all the overseas people get the cool hidden songs and we have to search for them on the internet.
    anyway, i love the chorus. a good little tongue twister in a song is always a good touch!

    General CommentI'm wondering which Adelaide the title of the song comes from. I am from Adelaide the capital of South Australia, and NFG have done several shows here. But I also know that there are about three Adelaide's in the USA alone.

    I also wonder which one girlznotgrey000 (above) is from.

    General Comment(NB: I'm biased as I happen to think this song relates to me a lot)

    I think the song is about a guy who feels like his girlfriend should show interest in him, rather than him having to be the sole-instigator of conversations about him and his life. He feels like she should ask him about his interests and life. I think he feels really pathetic when he brings up things that mean a lot to him, because he's convinced she doesn't want to hear about it, because of one thing she once said to him that stuck in his head.

    Evidence:
    "You'll never get an answer from me
    i always keep it stuck in my head
    a million words i could have said"

    "Please disregard* my opinion
    i try to only give it when i'm asked
    it helps to get it off my chest"

    "the point has been right in front of you, in plain view
    the past does not only repeat,
    it haunts you and I can't get the words you said out of my head
    out of my head"

    He hates the fact that even after all the time they've spent together, the truth is she barely knows anything about him, because she never asks...
    Evidence:
    "don't you say, you know i heard you said you know
    don't you say, you know anything about me"

    He is the one who actually listens to her and knows about her, while she basically ignores him, yet she still complains about how hard he is to be with (possibly for him not showing emotions etc).
    Evidence:
    "you say you're so overwhelmed with grief
    and it's because of me"
