"Anthony" as written by and Sara Watkins....
Anthony, Anthony
Oh, he said he can't love me
But I think he can

Yes, I think he can
I told him that just before he ran
Just before he ran

Mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm
And he's not lookin' back

He's not lookin' back
Cause he doesn't want anything I have
Or anything I am

Anthony, Anthony
Oh, he said he can't love me
Anthony

    General CommentWell, obviously this song is about a girl who is in denial about this guy not liking her. She can't let go even though he's made it clear he doesn't want anything to do with her.

    General CommentI find this song really fun somehow. Yes it's clearly about a girl in denial of a boy's feelings, and I think it's ...dare i say... *cute*? I have a lot of fun singing songs like this with my friends because even if they aren't the best written ever, they are still the kind of song that - as forelsket_seg said- grow on you!

    General CommentIf you think it's cute now, you should see them do this one live. Sara plays the main riff on a little ukelele and sings, and Sean and Chris stand on either side and lean in to sing the backup harmonies all into one microphone. And then, at the end of the song, as she delivers her last "Anthony," the other they back away so it's just Sara standing there in the light, looking sad.

    It's SO CUTE.

    General CommentI love this song...who can't relate? Everyone has liked someone, and no matter even if that person didn't like you back you still have this inkling they just might.
