"I Melt With You" as written by Robert James Grey, Stephen James Walker, Michael Frances Conroy, Gary Frances Mcdowell and Richard Ian Brown....
Moving forward using all my breath
Being friends with you was never second best
And I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

(You should know better)
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(You should see why)
Trapped in a state of imaginary grace
(You should know better)
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
(You should see why)
Never comprehending the race has long gone by

(I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(I'll stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide

(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide

I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you...

    General CommentThis song is about caring about someone so much but understanding they don't feel the same, but still being their friend because losing them all together would be far worse.

    General CommentOH. MY. GOD.
    NOBODY has commented on the fact that this is originally by Modern English. They changed it. It's so crappy now. ):

    General CommentThe 'being friends with you' part was changed from 'making love to you' because this song was made for the soundtrack of a disney movie and they had to make it more kid-friendly

    General CommentIt looks like Vicious 09 made the best comment, because it analyzed the song. .which is what this site was intended for.
    I never saw it Vicious 09's way before, actually. Never thought it was about unrequited love or friendship. But that's interesting.
    I'd have to say it's either that or simply a love song. I you wanted just one sentence to sum up most of the whole song, I'd say it goes like:


    You matter more than all the matter of the earth.

    But "You've seen the difference, and it's getting better all the time" does sound like what Vicious 09 was talking about. Not sure. But this song is proof that Bowling For Soup can rock the shit out on kazoos!
