"Here Comes The Anxiety" as written by and Daniel Joseph/murphy Haggis....
I'd say that this is darkest song I ever wrote
No hint of a smile, or the usual quirky anecdotes
No, this is a song about someone knew what not to say
What not to do, so now, I think I'll just be honest.

I hope that no one ever leaves,
'Cause I don't wanna be alone with me
Not with the things that rush up and down this symphonous smile
Here comes the love anxiety
Can't let it grab a hold of me, not after last time

Why'd you have to wear skirts and heels like that?
She's blinding anyway but now she's floodlighting up the match
Well it's twenty minutes 'til showtime
But the backstage is the stage tonight
So now, I think I'll just be honest

I hope that no one ever leaves
'Cause I don't wanna be alone with me
Not with the things that rush up and down this symphonous smile

Here comes the love anxiety
Can't let it grab a hold of me
Not like the last time
Here comes the love anxiety
It's gonna grab a hold of me, just like the last time

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a guy who has really low self esteem, so he has to keep in a relationship. When one ends, he starts another instantly, hence the love anxiety. He hates himself so he needs gratification from girls and his problem in the song is that he likes a girl, but he knows he's making her into something she's not so that he doesn't have to be alone around himself.

    This song is overly relevant to me and I think a lot of people who are relationship addicts. When you can't stand yourself you need someone else to like you to keep you alive and happy.

    General CommentFirst comment :D

    I enjoy the way that it is more mellow than some of their other stuff. Opening line is amazing

    General CommentCompletely agree ^^^^^

    I'm fond of the first part of the chorus,
    "I hope that no one ever leaves,
    'cause I don't wanna be alone with me,"

    And the bit about the girl who "floodlights up the match"
    :)

    General Commenti really really really love this song.
    the first verse especially. and the chorus. and the bit about floodlighting up the match. :)

    i reckon it's about this guy who's really upbeat and fun and is very sociable. but he loves this girl. and he just wants his friends to stay around so he can forget about her and carry on being the fun guy that he is. He knows that as soon as they leave, he's got no distractions, and he'll start thinking about her.
    He doesn't want to think about her, cos he doesn't know what she thinks of him (hence the 'love anxiety')

    it reminds me of one of my friends :)

    General CommentI'm sorry, but "symphonous" isn't a word.
