She comes to me
Whenever I am locked inside my room
Buried in the tune that I call love

She sings to me, the words I cannot hear
But then, the melody's so clear it makes me cry

Her love is so beautiful
Her love is so real, it smells like glue

She's leaving me to find a place she never will call home
I stand shaking like a stone
And smile inside

She's calling me to come to her and curl inside her womb
I hear lies, acid too
But I won't die, the pain is so beautiful
The urge is so real, it smells like glue

And I will scream, she hears me
I will tell myself she loves me
And all the lies and fears
Will stick to me like glue

    General CommentI first heard the NMH version of this song, and I loved it. I downloaded the original version, and I loved it so much that I went out and bought "Are You Sleepy?". Scott's voice is so different, but so amazing. The Gerbils are definitely an underrated band. It's sad that Will Westbrook has passed on. :(

    General CommentI love this song.
    I can't think of a better depiction of a lonely addict.
    Neutral's version is lovely as well, I really like that version from an instrumental perspective.

    General CommentThe song uses glue sniffing as a euphemism for the romanticism relationships have in the earliest stages. Essentially, both glue and his romance get him high.

    General Comment"her love is so real, it smells like glue" Well what does glue do? What is glue? It's something that sticks. Something that makes something stay. True love. He thinks maybe it can last, stay, like glue. It's possible he could be talking about addiction too. The intoxication makes him feel good, but he knows it is a false happiness. It smells like glue...something synthetic, fake. It will wear off and he will be miserable again.

    General CommentI love this song! It's perfect! The first time I heard it though I kind of imaged the meaning being about his mother like he really wished she was a certain way and took different pieces and "glued" them together to make a perfect mother because his was not a good person, died, or he just didn't know what she was like. The "She's calling me to come to her and curl inside her womb" part furthered my idea and the rest of the song seemed to be him fighting with the painful truth and his imagination. Now that I listen to it though, it really does seem like it's about a heroin addiction.
