and if i died
it would be fine
if i died by your side
if you could spare one of your nine lives
we could ditch this coast
get in my car and drive

all this time
and i can't get enough of you
and every promise is true
it's my favorite pastime
chasing after you

and if i froze
here in the sand
my hand cold in your hand
i'd melt in your honour
i'd be happily slaughtered
i'm crazy for you

mind your watch, my baby
morning's come to claim me
mind this heart now, angel
night's not over yet

the most magnificent pastime
chasing after you

    General CommentThe name "Baseball, But Better" always made me think of the 'bases' of sexual activity, so its not really baseball at all?

    General Commentshoolaces, that's hilarious. the nine lives part makes me think of a cat whenever i hear this song too. max makes a lot of references to cats in his music, i wonder why....

    General CommentToast, I always thought of it as a slight to his earlier album, which was entitled "Baseball." Apparently, that album was all about one girl, and I always took it as kind of like...this song is about the same girl, but that this one song is better than all of Baseball.

    General Commenti think its called baseball but better cause it talks about it being HIS favorite pastime (baseball is americas pastime)
    that just seems logical?

    General CommentI agree with rocksolidgurl, it makes much more sense than Max talking about sports.

    General Commentwhy is it so crazy that he'd write about sports? a whole album named baseball?
    song named baseball but better, and another named save situation
    reference to someone playing on varsity in a song

    why do you assume he wouldnt talk about sports?
