"Wound Up" as written by and Gary Burr Gregg Pagani....
Zebra-skin fabric flows smooth down the curve of your back
We bump into a tourist waving an American flag
They come and go
They come and go
There's a blue sky turning pink it's quickly fading to black

Whatever

Let's go to the beach tonight with a bottle of wine
Baby it's a lot harder to stay in...
When you're wound up so, so tight

An old man offers up a joke for my pocket change
Behind the girl on roller-blades two cars nearly collide
They come and go
They come and go
May all black cats and alley rats never cross your lucky path.

Never

Let's go to the beach tonight with a bottle of wine
Baby it's a lot harder to stay in...
When you're wound up so, so tight

I'm glad you're here with me
(Cold feet in the conversation)
Here's to you and here's to me
Here's to you and here's to me
Here's to you and here's to me

Let's go to the beach tonight with a bottle of wine
Baby it's a lot harder to stay in

Let's go to the beach tonight with a bottle of wine
Baby it's a lot harder to stay in
When you're wound up so, so tight
When you're wound up so, so
When you're wound up so, so tight

    General CommentI think this song is about some summer weekday... You know weekdays aren't always the best and the girl is "wound up" and stressed so she feels like she has to stay inside. The boyfriend, guy friend, or whatever you wanna call him suggests they go to the beach [tonight] and on their way there they see how the streets are somehow chaotic and distracting.. so he tells the girl how lucky she is that she is in his arms..

    General CommentGod, this song is so fantastic! All of their music is, but I'm finding it impossible to get any albums other than "A Night on the Ritz"

    Too bad, they're so good!

    General CommentThis is a great song from a GREAT band. A Night at the Ritz is superb, Oh My, Possibilities and Q & A are some other strong songs. Sticky Dew from their album Mecca is a great song as well. You can find them on Itunes and I ordered a Night at the Ritz from Amazon.
