"Ruby" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
Let it never be said that romance is dead
'Cause there's so little else occupying my head
There is nothing I need, 'cept the function to breathe
But I'm not really fussed doesn't matter to me

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby
Do ya do ya do ya do ya
Know what your doing, doing to me
Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby

Due to lack of interest
Tomorrow is canceled
Let the clocks be reset and the pendulums held
'Cause there's nothing at all 'cept the space in between
Finding out what you're called and repeating your name

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby
Do ya do ya do ya do ya
Know what your doing, doing to me
Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby

Could it be could it be that you're joking with me
And you don't really see you with me
Could it be could it be that you're joking with me
And you don't really see you with me

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby
Do ya do ya do ya do ya
Know what your doing, doing to me
Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby
Do ya do ya do ya do ya
What your doing, doing to me

    My InterpretationIt's about a girl named Ruby, who the singer is in love with and she leads him on into thinking that she's in love with him as well...

    He begins entertaining this possibility by the time we get to the bridge:
    "Could it be, could it be that you're joking with me
    And you don't really see you with me?"

    Pretty straight forward and an addictive song!

    General Commentreally good first track, hope the rest of the album is of a high quality!
    the meaning seems pretty obvious, he is obsessed by this 'ruby' person. it may be a metaphor or something maybe? thats the only complication i can see

    General Commentwell there was an awful lot of novelty songs on the last album so i guess there is a possibility this song is actually about a curry.

    (think cockney rhyming slang)
    also if you realli look at the lyrics you can see sum lines that can b used as metaphors to back up my theory

    however in all seriousness gr8 song
    i particularly like the bridge:
    Could it be could it be that you’re joking with me
    And you don’t really see you with me
    Could it be could it be that you’re joking with me
    And you don’t really see you with me

    oh the story of my life

    General CommentActually, saw something on TV where Rick the lead singer said that Ruby isnt a specific person, its anyone at all.
