"Best Not to Think About it" as written by and Timothy John Wanstall Carey Suthon Willetts....
He sees the flames in her tears
Sketching on her skin and he knows
That it's come to an end
And it's no point pretending it's not

And it's a long way down, a long way down from here
And it's a long way down, a long way down from here

So she smashes the glass
And there's blood on her hands and her skirt
There's the wind and a sun,
A fresh air in her lungs once again

And it's a long way down, a long way down from here
And it's a long way down, a long way down from here

So he closes his eyes
And thinks 'maybe I'll be surprised if I do
I just might fall into another realm
And make another home there with you'

And it's a long way down, a long way down from here
And it's a long way down, a long way down from here

It's best not to think about it
Just put your arms around me

It's best not to think about it
Just put your arms around me

It's best not to think about it
Just put your arms around me, oh

    General Commenttelling a girl that he can't do it anymore, her then reacting badly and smashing the glass - shouting/screaming at him because of it - hence the fresh air in her lungs again.

    then him thinking about it all, and wondering if he'll be surprised about it all, and that everything might work out after all.


    umm i think that makes sense to me :)

    General CommentThis song's about 9/11 and the people that jumped from the towers. Its an excellent song about a difficult subject to write about.

    General Comment'Why do americans, as you probably are' - Well nice assumption but I'm actually from manchester lol.

    The song was inspired by the 'falling man' documentary like special k suggests - I read it in an interviewwith the band.

    But if people have their own meanings for songs then I wouldn't have a go at them local lad.

    General CommentMaybe the song was inspired by 9/11 but saying it's about a relationship falling apart also makes sense, whatever way you want to look at it I guess.

    General CommentYep - Joel Potts stated in an interview that the lyrics concern a couple on the edge of jumping from the World Trade Center, and the fear and helplessness they must have felt, followed by the inevitable peace.
