Something to write home about
The fade of your smile
I knew you were giving up
I've known for a while

I am always here for you
I am always near by you

Your 'two for me' attitude is always the same
I laugh at the sound of your voice and I'm sorry i came
I pick up the slack for you and i sing it back to you

Hands up everyone who feels cheated
How dare it be like this?
Feel bad for the weak one i am - I let it happen
There's a thrill in something new
And i hope it lasts don't you?
And if not
I hope we do

I could fall asleep on you...

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Reuben songs. I'm in two minds about its meaning. I think it's possibly about a friend, who's going through a rough time and possibly on the verge of suicide, or he has commited suicide ("Hands up everyone who feels cheated, How dare it be like this? Feel bad for the weak one i am - I let it happen")

    Although when I read the lyrics again I think it's about a relationship that's on the verge of falling apart. Basically the girl is unhappy in the relationship ("The fade of your smile") and as the song goes on, she cheats on him ("Your 'two for me' attitude")
    But despite what she does to him, he still loves her and will always support her. Hence the "I am always here for you". Because I think he blames himself slightly for her cheating on him ("Feel bad for the weak one i am - I let it happen"). And he still wants the relationship to work because he is still in love with her

    This song is a lot more mellow than usual Reuben songs, but IMO it's one of their most powerful songs too. I can relate to this, and I'm sure many other people can too.
    Hopefully they'll be bringing an album out soon!!

    General CommentI really love this.
    For me, it reminds me of the nearing end of a relationship, when someone realises their 'lover' doesnt love them anymore.
