lately words awkwardly fall out of me
like your first at bat
missing and all that
and I can’t seem to finish a simple sentence, a thought progression
guess I need not mention when I stop to think
I forget everything
and you can’t write it down
it’s no verb or no noun
it’s like a story told ‘fore you ever get old
or like a seventh sense or is coincidence
Then we think we’re torn, when really we’re just worn
and when we don’t understand it’s like some divine hand
and as the days do pass, nothing in nature lasts
and I can’t swallow it, it just seems too big to fit
and when the darkness come
androgynous and numb
say no more in ‘04, be like you’re heavens’ door
thank god for chance meetings, chances are our best things
up there with ocean waves, and sleeping in all day
and stayin’ up all night and knowin’ you’re so right
ahh ahh
they’re only words, just leave ‘em out
aint no cynicism gonna get me down
they’re only words

    General CommentThis is probably one of my favorite Whispertown2000 song, it, along with all their other songs, is beautiful live.

    But to the song, I really am not very good at this. But this is straightforward so I will give it my best.

    Obviously it's about some great love, and I really hope it's a genuine happy like in The Cure's "Mint Car". I really do, and I think it may be. That love where it is difficult to find the right thing to say, but where words don't even matter as much as they should, not saying that it's a relationship where sex is the core, just that they can understand what the other means even how badly it is worded.


    That's all I have.

    General Commenti like how she refers to love as a seventh sense. -_-

    General Commentaccording to morgan nagler, the singer, guitarist, and lyricist, she called this song intentions cause everyone thought it was a sad song, but she wrote it to be a happy song. so it is genuinely happy, like the cure's "mint car".
