"You Don't Send Me" as written by and Martin/murdoch/colburn/cooke/geddes/jackson/kildea....
Since you went away, everything is looking great
I'm a little bored
When I see you out, maybe walking in the street
You always cross the road

Listen honey, there is nothing you can say to surprise me
Listen honey, there is nothing you can do to offend me anymore
You don't send me anymore

Our little scene is getting smaller by the day
It's a human zoo
But the key is change, getting over all your problems
You're not a fool

Listen honey, there is nothing you can say to surprise me
Listen honey, there is nothing you can do to offend me
You don't send me

Every sound is tame, every group the bleedin' same
It would make you mad
What happened to the sounds that left you lying on the floor
Laughing, crying, jumping, singing

Listen honey, there is nothing you can say to astound me
Listen honey, there is nothing you can do to offend me anymore
You don't send me anymore

    General Commenti think this is about someone he was really good friends with, but they got in a fight... he got over it, and the friend didnt... the friend still worries and isnt generally happy anymore.

    General CommentI think this could be a number of things. A relationship that is getting old / a past relationship where "you don't send me" means "you don't affect me and my life anymore" / The music scene. There is nothing to hear that hasn't been heard before, it's all old etc.

    Just some ideas.

    General Commentthe town i live in is so bland. you spend two weeks out on the town and you know everyone, you've dated someone, you've broken up with someone... and you're done. you're in the drama, the music scene is blah, and you're over it. still, a drama monger will pick at you and pick at you to try and get you upset... but hell, you don't send me... theres nothing you say to astound me. good for you if you're dating your ex girlfriend. hope that works out for ya... i don't care. this town is boring, i'm over it.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a specific type of relationship, one that I happen to be in right now. You used to like the person, you had some kind of falling-out, and now you're on very neutral terms with them. You aren't angry at them but you don't love them anymore. They just don't "send" you anymore=they are no longer interesting, exciting, inspiring.

    General CommentBack in the 50's it used to be popular to say he/she "Sends Me" if you were in love/lust with them. There is even a song called "You Send Me" by Sam Cooke.

    So, knowing that I suppose this song is about the exact opposite of that. I also think this song is a bit spiteful and playfully rude. He's saying, look get over it, I don't give a flying fuck about you anymore. The people in the song must've had the same group of friends and obviously the break-up between them has split the group which the girl in the song is upset about but the singer doesn't care, because that's what eventually happens to all clicks.

    Overall, i.m.o this is a really fun song about a guy telling a girl to get over herself.
