"Bright Idea" as written by George Astasio, Christopher Thomas Cano, John Ben T. Jen, Jason Andrew Pebworth, Chad Michael Rachild and Kevin M. Roentgen....
Did somebody tell you what I couldn't tell you
I hope they did
I hope they didn't

Well I oughta regret it
Or should I forget it
Whatever this is
It feels electric

You shot me a sweet look
Gave me your yearbook
Told me to sign it
It was a signal

But I couldn't find the words
I just couldn't find the nerve
As usual

Here's my bright idea
I'll just disappear
I'll just fly away from here
(Hey!)

And now you're in Hollywood
Right in my neighborhood
Things are really looking up for you
An army of managers
And lots of pretty boys lining up
To read for you

Oh, I'm pretty sure that it was you
That I bumped into just the other day
At the record store
But I still don't have a clue
I just couldn't talk to you

As usual

Here's my bright idea
Mmmm
I'll just disappear
Woah
Here's my bright idea
Bamb bamb bamb bamb
I'll just disappear
I'll just fly away from here

So I come to your event
In my well rehearsed mystique
I show up an hour late
But I've been ready for a week
And you float into the hallway
like some neon silohuette
I'm slowly losing oxygen
and my hands are soaking wet
all the cameras and reporters
piling up on one another
just to get a look at you
they all want an interview

Then I make my move
push them out of my way
but I still just don't know what to say

Here's my bright idea
Mmmmm
I'll just disappear
Woah
Here's my bright idea
Bamb bamb bamb bamb
I'll just disappear
I'll just fly away from here

Here's my bright idea
Here's my bright idea
Here's my bright
Here's my bright
Here's my bright idea
Woah

    General Commentwell its obvious to me.. a girl who he had a major crush on in high school and he could never find the words to tell her, then he meets her again when hes all rich and famous but he still feels like he was a teen.

    I love it but I still think No Tomorrow is better.

    General Commenti luv this Band. Orson are the best new thing in music. I love the fact that it repeats the best bit over and over. This song is prob about a guy that uses David Blain style magic tricks to impress th ladies!!!!!! Rock on Orsom.

    General CommentWHo cares wot it means this is the worst song I have heard for ages. Its tedious and repetative. I can't believe it took five of these apes to write it. "Hey I've got a good idea, at the end we cud repeat the chorus till ppl puke on their TVs." Good one. Check out a proper band, like Eels.
