"That's What Counts" as written by Christopher Cain and Keith Murray....
We shouldn't think about last night
Nobody's proud of what they've done
Oh, let's not argue about what's right
Let's just agree that it was fun, fun

Enough is not enough
But I keep saying that I'll stop
Over and over
I'm drowning in each drop

There's not much left for me to do
But try to make another call
If I'm not waking up with you
Why bother waking up at all?

Enough is not enough
But I keep saying that I'll stop
Over and over

I know this isn't news
But I think I'm getting used
To sayin' that I'll go
Over and over

Enough is not enough
But I keep sayin' that I'll stop
Over and over

I know this isn't news
But I think I'm getting used
To sayin' that I'll go
Over and over
I'm drowning in each drop

But enough is not enough
And I keep saying that I'll stop
Over and over
I know this isn't news

    General CommentI get the whole one-night-stand vibe from this vibe, just because of the first verse. I feel like the chorus is about how he (the person in the song) is not going to stop at a one-night stand and is continuing to sleep with this person and then the second verse could be about how hopeless he feels without having this person truly at his side because he wants the relationship to be about more than just sex and these little fleeting moments.

    It's a really great song regardless.

    General CommentI think this song is about when you keep doing something to piss off your girlfriend (" I keep saying that I'll stop"), but you're too pridefull to stop what your doing and instead you just say you want to leave (" I know this isn't news,but I think I'm getting used to sayin' that I'll go"). Then you realize that you need her more than she needs you ("If I'm not waking up with you,why bother waking up at all?") and as long as you both love each other then "Thats what counts". I love the saxophone in this song.

    General CommentIt seems to me to be about an alcohol problem made to sound like a romantic affair:

    Enough is not enough,
    but I keep saying that I'll stop
    over and over.
    I'm drowning in each drop.

    General CommentWow this song is trippy, it didn't even sound like WAS at first, but I'm blown away. Logged in just to say that.
