If I was a sunset, I'd want to lay on your bed,
And watch the Hollywood lights flicker as it started to dim.
If I was a movie, you know I'd feel pretty good.
I'd watch you dancing all night in the dark where I stood.

I don't think about you
I don't think about you
I don't think about you
You don't think about me
Miss Sunflower Blue

She's got the brown eyes, yeah, and they're pretty as hell
And they'll burn through your shirt if you're holding her still
She's got a lighter, and a lit cigarette
And if you're making her smile, that's just as high as you can get

I don't think about you
I don't think about you
I don't think about you
You don't think about me
Miss Sunflower Blue

I'm still out on Sunset in a taxicab
I'm still at the movies, and I'm holding your hand
Still at an overpass view looking out at the lights
Still on an airplane, and I'm starting to cry
I don't think about you

If I was the evening, you know I'd send you a breeze
I'd let it whisper in your ear, kiss you and sing you to sleep
If I wasn't so screwed up, maybe all the words might have come
But I think the needing just took everything they wanted was sung

I don't think about you
I don't think about you
I don't think about you
You don't think about me
Miss Sunflower Blue

    General Comment:this is one of my favorite songs of all time, but i'm never quite sure what it means...i'll give it a try.

    it's about a girl that he'd do anything for, and it seems like any small gestrure from her towards him he takes as meaning so much. he's in love with her, and she either doesn't realize it, or doesn't take his feelings seriously. so him saying he doesn't think about her, is him trying to tell himself, that no matter how often he actually does, if he can at least tell himself he doesn't, it's his sort of justification for her not thinking of him. he needs to tell her how he feels, and he probably has told himself hundreds of times what he wants to say, but when he finally gets to her to do it, he is frozen, and he loses his chance. so he goes back to telling himself he doesn't think of her, when he really does all the time..

    General Comment:yeah, I feel as if he's being very strong willed when he says "I don't think about you," it's extremely obvious that he does not only think about her, but basically worship her, and he meant it to appear that way. To me it sort of seems like hes joking or being a little sarcastic, but I don't know if those are the right words because he's sadly in love and hopeless in trying to rid his mind of her. The song is absolutely beautiful, so full of passion and emotion and details. What woman doesn't want a song of that stature written about her?

    General Comment:I think she's broken up with him and he is still crazy about her... "i dont think about you" he is fooling himself to try and forget her cus the pain is unbearable that he cant be with her. he recalls memories with her that he cherishes. "But I think the needing just took everything they wanted was sung" this means he was almost obsessed with her, we all know how women are, once they got a fish, they think they need another one. thats why she doesn't think about him, she's got another man. Ultimately this song is about an ex that he's hung up on.

    General Comment:this is a song about impossible love...the ones you long for in secret and no one really knows about because you hide it to the world...and you wished you were a breeze or movie, or a sunset, because then you wouldn't need words, you wish you weren't thinking about them because it kills and you wish you didn't have to go...

    General Comment:This is one of the most beautiful songs he's ever written. Suicide Handbook is fantastic!

    I agree with ekodili. But I also take it as someone that just couldn't take it. Maybe the relationship was too intense and he couldn't get past his own mistakes (drugs, distance, uncertainty) and let go. Now he's lost without her, wishing that he wouldn't have let her go, The emotions of not having her is fair worse the the intensity that distanced him beforehand. (if I wasn't so screwed up, maybe all the words would have come)
