Round and round in circles, I coundn't tell you why, whenever you swim by, I can't breath.
Maybe I'm just drowing and you're swimmin around.
I'm down in the choral reaf.

Oh, how I wish we were the kissin kind of fish
'cause you, you're always on my mind.
But I feel like a fool waitn' around for you.
I must just be the sucker kind.

It's somethin' about the way you shine in the light, you glow.
Bright blue and pink in your cheeks.
I just wanted you to know:
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.

Finally got close enough
to take a taste, took a look
Saw a hook in a piece of bait

And all at once I was ripped from the sea.
I'm a fish outta water and I can't breathe.

It's somethin' about the way you shine in the light, you glow.
Bright blue and pink in your cheeks.
I just wanted you to know:
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.

I was decieved,
all along the pond was catch and release.
So I'm a goldfish 'cause they've no memory and I won't remember you.
Forgot me.

It's somethin' about the way you go and the light; it fades away
And the sea is as dark as the night.
There's nothing I can say.
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.
You're not just another fish in the sea to me.

    General CommentI can't believe I did not discover Big Japan before.. to tell you the truth, I was never a big Adam Brody Fan, but since I discovered this band... I am overwhelmed. They sound awesome. Nice mixture between positive Bright Eyes Stuff, Elliott Smith, Ben Folds maybe? However: They rock. Indie. Great stuff. And such a beautiful song... and I understand the emotions of the song so well. To me, it's about those moments when you meet someone, liking that person, maybe do some flirting...but thinking you won't have a chance for long.. but it still is a good feeling to get to know that somebody, because he/she is special. You wish you'd remember this moment later on, to cheer yourself up, but you know, you won't. It is that small moments that can make your day, and that you do forget too fast.
    Still.. it was kind of special. For that moment. That somebody was special.. not like anyone else. "Not just another fish in the sea".

    General CommentI must admit, I first became a Big Japan fan solely because of Adam Brody. I had no idea that they had such great music.

    This song has got to be one of my favorites. It's got a crazy special place in my heart because of what I was going through when I first heard it, but I think it's about when you first meet that one person you know is meant for you, and you're in it head over heels; no matter if that other person feels the same way about you.

    General Commenti think that the title of this song is fitted as it starts off with him liking the other fish (girl) from a distance, thinking she is too good fr him, then he gets to know her a bit and finds out that she really isn't all that great and that he deserves better. maybe, maybe not, but that's how i see it. however he still remembers at the end of the song how he felt about her at the start, ir is this him moving onto another fish??

    General CommentIs it me, or does the title not mesh with the actual lyrics? XD It's misleading! But it's a great song.

    Maybe it's to show the end of a relationship-- you're kinda mad/bitter that it had to end, but you see the person was an important part of your life, someone more and not just another fish in the sea. You get over it, you know?

    General CommentI think the person who sings it want to let the girl he's in love with know she's different.. I don't know.
