"Mars Sparkles Down On Me" as written by and Simon Christopher Cleave David Lewis Gedge....
So yeah I've got my brand new girlfriend
And she's great in every way
And you've got your new lover there
So I guess we're both okay

And I know that we've been through this
And we have to be apart
But the thought of him lying in our bed with you well
It still just breaks my heart
Mars sparkles down on me

You say he wants to meet me
I'm sure he's genuine
But how can I just shake his hand when it's been
All over your skin
Mars sparkles down on me

I should stop calling on a whim but I won't
I know I really should consider him but I don't
Mars sparkles down on me
On me
On me

    General CommentIt's kinda obvious. This is about breaking up and moving on. but he can't and it kills him to know that she has a new guy. He doesn't think he can even look the guy in his eys

    This is the most impactful part of the song "You say he wants to meet me
    Oh, I'm sure he's genuine
    But how can I just shake his hand?
    When it's been all over your skin"

    I love this song tons

    General CommentI haven't heard this song before but I really like the lyrics. Simple, but something someone can greatly relate to.

    General CommentGreat song -- expresses sentiments spot-on, unlike anything else in popular music, ever.

    wrong lyric: I should stop calling on our wind
    correction: I should stop calling on whim
