"Vintage People" as written by and Sherri/dupree Dupree....
I have laughed up galaxies,
Hats and glasses,
But I've never met anyone quite like you,
I've met vintage people,
Who boast of shipwrecks and bravery,
But I've never met someone quite like you.

You can take me away from here.

Do you remember, how it was when we were fascinators,
sneaking glances,
Do you remember how it was
all night when I sing my song,
'Til our songs we're done.

All the people gathered to watch you smile,
& take photographs for rememberance,
Could they testify with experience they would find that,
They've never met someone quite like you.

You can take me away from here.

Do you remember, how it was when we were fascinators,
Sneaking glances,
Do you remember how it was
all night while I sing my song,
'Til our songs we're done.

Oooh...ah..whoaa...

Do you remember how it was when we were fascinators,
Sneaking glances,
Do your remember how it was
all night while i sing my song,
'Til our songs we're done

& it's just nice to be near you,
'Til the sun breaks our city street through

    General CommentI love this song. :] It's definitely one of my favorites of their's. The song is relatively easy to understand. Well, at least in my opinion.

    I tend to think of a girl who has had many boyfriends and crushes in her past, but then all of a sudden she meets someone that blows everyone else out of the water.

    Also, the way that "But I've never met someone quite like you" is sung makes me think that maybe she's almost confused or bewildered (in a happy-surprised way) as to how this person is so perfect and fitting.

    Then the rest of the song basically talks about wonderful their relationship is.

    Yeah.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that it has to do with an ex of Sherri's.

    I think this could be about a wedding or a prom, an event where people take pictures and talk about how wonderful the couple is, how they are all enchanted by them. I say wedding because you need a witness at the weddings.

    Also, I think it's sung in such a tone - detatched, dreamy, and kind or surprised that she feels this way about the person.

    Well, that's just how I see it.

    General CommentI don't understand what they mean when they say,
    "

    Sneaking glances,
    Do you remember how it was
    all night while I sing my song,
    'Til our songs we're done."

    I believe that means...that her and the boy always used to sneak glances but then turn away from eachother shyly. They were facsinated by eachother but never spoke up or did anything about it. He used to watch her perform a song on stage with her band.
