"Ripe" as written by and Ben Lee....
The moon sheds light across the end of the bed
You made me wait but now I'm touchin? your leg
And I remember all the little things you said
Quesadillas made with cheese and a rock band who were Japanese

So for once in my life
I saw what I wanted and took a bite
I picked the fruit from the tree
And it was ripe

Your love got big, your jokes got worse each afternoon
Like bacon at a Bar Mitzvah, like a lead balloon
And who's to say what really happened in that room each day
I was lookin? for a bride, you were lookin? for a groom

So for once in your life
You saw what you wanted and took a bite
You picked the fruit from the tree
And it was ripe

And all you people are the heroes I've known
We're staring off the edge into the unknown
We are not there yet but we cannot got home
So we cry and we sing, yeah, I remember everything

How for once in our lives
We saw what we wanted and took a bite
We picked the fruit from the tree
And it was ripe

And it was ripe
And it was ripe
And it was ripe

    General Comment"you made me wait but now i'm touching your leg".."i remember all the little things you said".."so for onece in my life..i picked the fruit from the tree and it was ripe"

    that sounds to me like a man and woman have waited for a long time to final be together sexually. the "i remember all the little things you said" line makes me think that they've known eachother for a long time. "it was ripe" gives me an image that both the man and the woman are virgins, but not anymore! but the line that says your drugs got worse each afternoon? what is that?

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "your jokes got worse each afternoon."

    To me, this song is about two people who have known each other for a long time, and probably wanted each other just as long. They finally went for it, and the timing was right.

    "Like bacon at a bar mitzvah" I love that line.

    General CommentIt's "a rock band who WERE Japanese."

    Also, is there such a thing as a quesadilla without cheese? Answer: no.
