"second minute or hour" as written by and Jack Penate....
Separated and negated, it seems fated
We have to find out more
Do you want me? Tell me properly
Or just stop me, it’s you that I adore

I can’t wait for another second minute or hour
I can’t wait, it’s all your choice, it’s in your power
I can’t wait for another second minute or hour
I can’t wait, it’s all your choice, it’s in your power

I lost my head when I found my heart
But now with neither I’ve fallen all apart
With this voice and chord I’ll tell you from the start
She never wanted me, she never wanted me

I act stupid due to Cupid
My love's rooted, you'll have to dig down deep
Mixed emotion, fixed devotion
Your magic potion you sprinkle as I sleep

I can’t wait for another second, minute or hour
I can’t wait, it's all your choice, it's in your power
I can’t wait for another second, minute or hour
I can’t wait, it’s all your choice, it’s in your power

I lost my head when I found my heart
But now with neither I’ve fallen all apart
With this voice and chord I’ll tell you from the start
She never wanted me, she never wanted me
She never wanted me

With you I can't imagine being alone
Without you I can't see how much I’ve grown
'Coz you made me what I am today
Have you gave me all that I can take

I lost my head when I found my heart
But now with neither I’m falling all apart
With this voice and chord I’ll tell you from the start
She never wanted me, she never wanted me
She never wanted me, she never wanted me

    General CommentWell heres my take on it.
    "seperated,and negated,it seems fated,we have to find out more.
    do you want me?tell me properly,or just stop me its you that i adore."

    this guy is in love with a girl but he isnt sure if he feels the same and just wants her to make the first move.

    lost my head when i found my heart
    but now with neither i've fallen all apart

    When he fell in love he stopped thinking logiclly, followed his heart. When she turned him down. He still isnt thinking logiclly and falls apart.

    mixed emotion,fixed devotion,your magic potion you sprinkle as i sleep.

    He thinks about her in his sleep basiclly.

    with you i can't imagine being alone
    without you i can see how much i've grown
    coz you made me what i am today
    have you gave me all that i can take

    He's learned from the experiance and doesnt regret feeling that way but still thinks what if.

    Well thats just my take on it anyways

    General CommentLove and lost love? Not sure about that, it seems to me more like he's waiting for a lady to reveal if she feels the same way about him as he does about her. Which really is a strangely great place to be, or maybe thats just because I love the chase.

    General CommentThe line 'I lost my head when I found my heart' is very similar to the line 'Use my hands to use my heart' in Sufjan Stevens' Flint (For the Unemployed and Underpaid) which alone isn't particularly remarkable but it has the same chord progression (or very close) just at a higher tempo. He doesn't list Sufjan Stevens as one of his influences on Myspace which makes me think that he ripped it straight from Stevens in the hope no one would notice. Does anyone else hear this?

    As for the actual song? It's okay, basically Torn on the Platform 2 (except not as good). Still, I'll take it over Hard-Fi any day of the week. Lyrics are a fairly standard affair about love/girlfriend/idle masturbation, not enough to make this bloke last more than a few years in the pop industry. :(

    And I agree with the opinion that he is NOTHING like Kate Nash. If you like Jack Penate can I recommend The Rumble Strips though, they have similarities. :)
