"Does This Mean You're Moving On?" as written by and Mikel Jollett....
And the funny thing is it has no end
I try to call you up, at 2am
In a crowded bar, your ringer tones
Grab my mind

I can see you through the phone,
The phone, the phone
And I'm wide awake at home
At home, at home
So think I'll seem like [unknown]
And hope you don't catch
The bourbon on my breath
My breath, my breath

Catch a cab outside on Seventh Street
And the cars fly through the Bowery
I come to your door and I hear a moan
Then another voice, so Christ, she's not alone
Alone, alone
And my heart sinks like a stone
A stone, a stone
And the tears won't even come
I feel so numb
So swept aside, so dumb
So dumb, so dumb

When the words are wrong
And my patience gone
Will you tell me
Does this mean you're moving on?

From the balcony, you call my name
I see you standing in the rain
Your words so dry, your face so wet
Said I broke your heart,
But it hasn't happened yet
I'll bet, your friends all hate me now
I get the strangest looks,
From that bitchy crowd
And though, they must think
They have every reason to
I guess I'm still not quite yet over you

When the words are wrong
And you're hanging on
Another guy's arm
Does this mean you're moving on?

    General CommentThis song is about a couple that broke up, and she's started to see other people, but he's still in love with her.

    General CommentExcerpt from MishMash Magazine:

    Both this song and "Sometime Around Midnight" were penned by the band's songwriter Mikel Jollett about the same former girlfriend. However they were written nearly a year apart. Jollett told MishMashMagazine.com that this song, "was actually written first but is a more upbeat take on the situation I guess."

    This song was actually their debut single. It was re-released in 2009 after the band gained some notoriety.
