"The Days Go By Oh So Slow" as written by and Brandon Reilly....
Take a seat, and catch your breath
You're only working towards your death
For as the days go by
They go by oh so slow
But your blonde hair and gaping eyes
Send tingles down my nervous spine
And now the days go by
They go by oh so slow

But I'm yours if you want it
I can be yours to spend your life with
I can be yours; we'll hide indoors
Petrified of the world

And if you'd rather stay in at night
I can relate to that
And if it feels like your heart's dried up
I can relate to that
And if you need someone at your side
I am out there
I'm out there
Out there

In the grass at Union Square
I touched your face, pushed back your hair
And said, “The days go by…
They go by oh so slow.”
(Days go oh so slow)
And in a room, upon your bed
We tangled arms and crossed our legs
When you sleep alone
The days go oh so slow

But I'm yours if you want it
I can be yours to spend your life with
I can be yours; we'll hide indoors
Petrified of the world

And if you'd rather stay in at night
I can relate to that
And if it feels like your heart's dried up
I can relate to that
And if you need someone at your side
I am out there
I'm out there
Out there

I am yours if you want it
I can be yours to spend your life with
I can be yours; we'll hide indoors
Petrified of the world
Oh!

And if you'd rather stay in at night
I can relate to that
And if it feels like your heart's dried up
I can relate to that
And if you need someone at your side
I am out there
I'm out there
I am out there

    General CommentI love this song - it's so catchy and laid back... their whole cd is great. I agree that the meaning is pretty straightforward. Is it just me or does the beginning remind you of The Cure songs?

    General CommentArgh i love this song so much. I really cant believe its not got more comments =0
    As soon as the little happy intro comes on, i cant help but smile one of those uncontrolable grins...
    The chorus is so cute. Infact, all the song is amazingly adorable. Brilliant love song.

    I also love the way its so layed back like its basically saying, "Man im so in fucking love with you! But if you dont feel the same its totally okay...its not like i care...." lol

    I touched your face, pushed back your hair
    And said, “The days go by…
    They go by oh so slow.”

    I am yours if you want it
    I can be yours to spend your life with
    I can be yours; we’ll hide indoors
    Petrified of the world

    I can relate to that

    I am out there
    I’m out there
    I am out there

    My InterpretationSomeone trying to find a way to get someone else to be with them.
    'Take a seat and catch your breath'- finding an excuse to get them to sit down next to them, just so that they're nearby.
    'Your blonde hair and gaping eyes'- flattery.
    '[...] I can relate to that'- you should be with me, because I understand you.
    'In the grass [...] When you sleep alone the days go oh so slow'- Is this something he's imagining and wants to happen, or something that did happen once that he wants back?
    'If you feel like your heart's dried up'- Has she made an excuse about why she can't be with him, and he's trying to get round it?

    I love this song. I have no real connection with what I perceive to be the meaning, but I love it.
