Meditation on the new/ Another version of an I Love You/ It’s a variation on a theme/ It’s attraction speaking a different name/ Oh you can’t imagine how/ Nice it is to write it down/ Or say it aloud/ I mean it means a lot to me/ To have proof of the existence of other fish in the sea

Oh/ I’ve gone fishing/ So long/ I’ve gone fishing*

Love was a revolving door/ It was a neon sign/ That couldn’t light the street anymore/ I used to think about him all the time/ Like going round and round on the circle line/ Oh the thing about a broken heart/ Is it’s like a mechanical toy without its moving parts/ Oh but I feel like I’m on the mend/ Because I’m getting up and I’m getting dressed and I’m getting out again

Oh/ I’ve gone fishing/ So long/ I’ve gone fishing*

I kit myself out with rods and reels/ For to play sardines with the electric eels/ Chase little angel fish with graceful tails/ Play hide and seek with the killer whales/ Maybe a game of catch me if you can/ With a submarine upon a bed of sand/ You see I am a deep sea diver now/ And I have never been afraid to drown

Oh/ I’ve gone fishing/ So long/ I’ve gone fishing*
Oh/ I’ve gone fishing/ So long/ I’ve gone fishing*


Letting you go, there ain’t no time to waste/ Letting you know that I’ll be gone all day/ I’ve gone fishing

Letting you go/ I take it in my stride/ Letting you know I won’t be back tonight/ I’ve gone fishing

    My InterpretationBeautiful song. The meanings probably obvious, but I think it's about trying to get over a past relationship and taking risks as you go along. It's also probably a little bit of experimentation to find the right "fish?." Lol, I love this band!
