The Spanish girl pointed at me and said, "silencio"
Making a little gesture as if switching off a radio
Sliding her fingers 'cross her lips as if shutting a zipper
And I clearly got the message; I didn't need to ask her

Making the reverse zipper 'cross my lips, opening for conversation
Signaling the international sign of reckless contemplation
Shrugging her shoulders and lifting up the hand that rested on her thigh
Her middle finger extended until its simple message could not be denied

I turned 17 and I swore to never speak a word again
But then someone came along and ruined everything
It was a strange time in my life

People seem to think a shy personality equals gifted
But if they would get to know one I'm sure that idea would have shifted
Most shy people I know are extremely boring
Either that or they are miserable from all the shit they've been storing

I turned 17 and I swore to never speak a word again
But then someone came along and ruined everything
It was a strange time in my life

I had a good time at the party when everyone had left
I flirted with a girl in sign language 'cause she was deaf

It was a strange time in my life
It was a strange time in my life

    General CommentI hope the lyrics are ok. This is possibly my favorite song off of the new album (Kanske Ar Jag Kar I Dig gives it a run for its money, though).

    I especially love the verse starting with "People seem to think a shy personality equals gifted." So awesome.

    General Comment"Either that or they are miserable from all the shit they've been storing."

    I can never figure out what this line is supposed to mean. Are they miserable because they're bottling up a whole bunch of pain and suffering, or is it constipation? I want to believe it's the first suggestion, but ever since someone brought up the other, I can't get it out of my head and now I'm upset >.<
