You don’t know me
But I’m sitting next to you
Every morning
On the bus or on the tube

You look tired
Would it help to hear me say
Don’t you worry
Friday’s not that far away?

On the weekends
We try to get our share
Of excitement and of fresh air
Trying to forget
Who we’re gonna be
When the alarm rings
On Monday morning

If in the evening
All you do is watch TV
Cause your too tired for anything else
You’re just like me

Just remember
As you struggle through the day
Relief awaits you
Friday’s not that far away

On the weekends
We try to get our share
Of excitement and of fresh air
Trying to forget
Who we’re gonna be
When the alarm rings
On Monday morning

    General CommentI saw an interview with The Perishers, and in it Ola said that he used to work an 8 - 5 job and that the whole week all he could wait for was the weekend. He talks about how people who work 8 - 5 jobs are the true heroes, trudging through tedious and monotonous work.... just a thought. It's a good song, very deep, and touching, but i guess all their songs are.

    General CommentI saw the same interview as siobs, and yea, basically that's what it's about. Every once in a while a band comes along and you just know that all they want to do is make music. The Perishers are that kind of band. If they can get the recognition, they are gonna go so far. It's not even a matter any more of making great music, because they've already done that. It's more of just getting their music out there.

    At the end of the interview Ola said, "The other guys are my best friends, I don't know what I'd be without them, and without the band. It's SO important to me." The Perishers are AMAZING. And that's the reason why.

    General CommentIt's such a sad song.. but it gives hope when he sings: "Don’t you worry

    General Comment"You don't know me, but I'm sitting next to you"... Isn't it sweet? I do love this song... It gives me some reflection... It says in the end after a week of work you have the weekend, that little time to relax... And don't think of anything. This song is in The O.C., which I really ADORE... I like even the line "Would it help to hear me say, don't you worry, friday's not that far away?"... Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
