"See-Saw" as written by and William Toby Martin Paul Robert Foster Murphy....
Pull down the blinds and stare at my blank screen
Some voice is asking how my weekends been
Planes go across the sky of Petersham
One day I will see all the hope that's stored in them

The pale underside catches the light

Like a see-saw I need more weight to carry me up
Maybe one day she will just say that she's happy enough, happy enough

Leaves haven't fallen yet but winter's been too long
Grief hits me like a succession of time bombs

I've run out of reasons to explain it away

Like a see-saw I need more weight to carry me up
Maybe one day she will just say "I'm happy enough"
If I was older then I would hold her
Tight and say: "don't you ever leave me"
And then maybe one day she will just say
That she's happy enough, happy enough

    General Commentwhy hasn't anyone commented on this wonderful song?! i love youth group, i think they deserve much more publicity than they get...then again, i wouldn't want them to be overplayed until they meant absolutely nothing, much like many of the songs on the radio these days...

    anyways, this song (in my opinion) reminds me of someone who's obviously unhappy, who's going through changes in life that they can't seem to deal with on their own. it almost sounds like someone suffering from a mood disorder, or some other issue, kind of like bipolar or a drug addiction or something. or maybe it's about the ups an downs of love and friendship, since so many songs seem to be about love.

    or maybe it's just about being happy with what you have and moving on. i don't think this song really needs to mean anything necessarily, i think it's pretty much self-explainatory and something a lot of people can relate to.

    wonderful song, nonetheless. sorry for the terrible review.

    General CommentTo me, it sounds like a guy who's in a relationship but isn't making the girl happy, in turn making him unhappy. If the girl says that she's happy enough, that would be the weight he'd need to "carry him up"; to lift his spirits.
