"Porchrail" as written by and Jenny Owen Youngs....
I've got a case of the stares like you wouldn't believe.
Everyone moves around with me,
I try to focus but I can't keep still
And since you're kind I think you will.

Just hold right there,
Don't move or blink.
Just need a minute
To sit and think
I got a spat of attention
Always on my tea,
Every urge on that swing turns tradgically free.
There's nothing more attractive like the thing you can't have.
I've got every intention of loosing my tie,
From the motivation to make this man mine.

Just hold right there
Don't move or blink.
Just need a minute
To sit and think.

I'm going to be sick,
I think I'm going to be sick

    General CommentAw, I really like this song. I'm surprised no one commented on it. It's a great song to open the CD with.

    The lyrics are really good, but the tone of the song is just perfect.

    General Commenti think she says, "to make this one mine".

    i'm pretty sure she doesn't like men.

    General CommentI could be completely off, but I always thought the lyrics were-

    I've got a case of the stirs, like you wouldn't believe.
    Everyone moves around but me.
    I try to focus, but I can't keep still.
    You said that you'd come and I think you will.

    General CommentI think the other tiny is right.

    This is clearly an anthem for pursuing a crush, or someone of a similar interest. It's been a good motivator the past few weeks.

    My Interpretationstirs, not stares
    you said that you'd come
    ...nothing more attractive than that one thing you just can't have.
    ...to make this one mine.
    to sit and...
    I think I'm going to be sick.
