Ms. Genova – You called and I’m coming over
There is something to be said for growing older
I can’t think of what it is right now
Maybe if we sit down I can force it out

Ms. Genova – Excuses aren’t going to win you over
And there’s a science to the politics of order
So smash your faith and flail your heart
Whatever makes you feel better at all

(I’ll reach on up into the sun and pull the curtains over)
Whatever takes the edge off – Whatever helps you get on
You know I miss you more than anything or anybody else
Whatever gets you through – No matter what I do
You know I miss you more than anything

Ms. Genova – Come and lay with me here on the sofa
I only wanted to help try to smooth things over
You’ve scratched your names into the dark
Whatever makes you feel better at all

(I’ll reach on up into the sun and pull the curtains over)
Whatever takes the edge off – Whatever helps you get on
You know I miss you more than anything or anybody else
Whatever gets you through – No matter what I do
You know I miss you more than anything

Ordinarily nothing fazes me
Ordinarily nothing scares the hell out of me

Ms. Genova – You called and I’m coming over
There is something to be said for growing older
I can’t think of what it is right now
Maybe if we sit down I can force it out

(I’ll reach on up into the sun and pull the curtains over)
Whatever takes the edge off – Whatever helps you get on
You know I miss you more than anything or anybody else
Whatever gets you through – No matter what I do
You know I miss you more than anything

    General CommentThis song can mean many different things to different people. For me, the song talks about a guy who really cares about this girl and he's willing to help her any way he can. She seems to be in distress of some kind and he's right there standing by. But, I wonder if she even knows how he really feels abour her? Besides the kewl lyrics, the melody just rocks. Nice to see some local talent finally being recognized across the country.

    General Commentyea, its as if this girl has a problem or soemthing, and shes trying to deal with it, only shes doing it in an unconventional way. but that doesnt matter to him - he just wants to help her out, no matter what he has to do (I'll reach up to the sun and pull the curtains over). She could be on drugs or soemthing, but he doesnt really care - just so long as shes happy.

    General CommentI remeber when TFP did a Studio 97 in March they played a slower version of this song that brought me to tears. They said that is was actually about a woman who lost her child.
    So I think the woman that he's talking about is detaching herself from the world, and distancing herself from him in her dispair and all he wants to do is make her happy.
