"Sideways" as written by and Shana Levy....
The sky looks pretty
Normal and so do the trees
I woke up pretty
Early and I could see
That I’ve been walking
I’ve been thinking
I’ve been looking at you
Sideways.
I’ve been moving
I’ve been dreaming
I’ve been looking at you
Sideways.
I have no problems
Dipping in my feet
But the trouble comes when
I have to jump.
And all the reasons not to
Seem pretty good
At the time
Cause I’ve been walking
I’ve been thinking
I’ve been looking at you
Sideways.
Yeah I’ve been moving
I’ve been dreaming
I’ve been looking at you
Sideways.

    General Commentthis song is really pretty...it's so dreamy.
    i think it's about someone who's beginning to consider a good friend as something more. and they're scared to take the next step, there are so many reasons not to go for it, but they're considering it anyway.
    i like the line "i've been looking at you sideways,' it makes me think of someone who's nervously glancing at the person next to them, all the while hoping.

    General Commenti really love this song! I like the Asa taccone remix too. yummers. I agree with you, the curious cat. Friend but maybe more? She's kind of afraid to do anything about her maybe feelings. I think looking at the person sideways is kind of like seeing them in a new light, at a new angle and everything else seems to shift too as she considers love with this person and it's like "hm! I could maybe love you!"
    Ahh I love this song!

    General CommentI think this is about a someone who starts to find out that they have deeper feelings for one of their friends than they had thought.

    "I have no problems
    Dipping in my feet
    But the trouble comes when
    I have to jump."

    I think this refers to the fact that the person has no trouble flirting and playing around with their friend, but to "jump" all the way in, or to tell them how they really feel (I love you more than that), is too much. this is a beautiful song.

    General Commenti think its about a girl with her head in the clouds.. thinking about a guy.. and then all of sudden she realizes she has misunderstood him. she sees him in a new light. the video is kinda sad.. its more of a cheating story and the guy betraying her. i duno its a good song.

    General Commentthe curious cat and raviolicadillac are spot on I think. I can completely relate to this song right now as I'm sure many ladies can, ha ha. It's such an adorable, sugary sweet song.
