"2 Atoms in a Molecule" as written by and Charles Fink....
Last night, I had a dream
We were inseparably entwined
Like a piece of rope made out of two pieces of vine
Held together, holding each other
With no one else in mind
Like two atoms in a molecule
Inseparably combined

But then I woke from the dream
To realize I was alone
A tragic event, I must admit
But let's not be overblown
I'm gonna try to ride a love song
Just a sad, pathetic moan
And maybe I just need change
Maybe I just need a new cologne

But now I look at love
Like being stabbed in the heart
You torture each other from day to day
And then one day you part
Most of the time it's misery
But there's some joy at the start
And for that, I'd say it's worth it
Just as you play the shortest sharp on me

And if love is just a game
Then how come it's no fun?
If love is just a game
How come I've never won?
I guess maybe it's possible I might be playing it wrong
And that's why every time I roll the dice
I always come undone

    General CommentI'm gonna try to ride a love song

    Surely it's "I'm gonna try to WRITE a love song"

    I could be wrong, but that just amkes somuch more sense... how can yu ride a song anyway?

    I'm halfway through the album... which is just an extender version of their EP which is a bit gutting, and of the 3 songs that wern't on the EP thatI've listened to as of yet, this is the only one that compares to the EP songs.

    I'm talking 5YT, Jocasta, etc.

    DWYD and Second Lover don't quite meet the standard set by these tracks. This song's lovely but

    General CommentI thought it was "I'm not trying to write a love song, just a sad pathetic moan"? Or am I just insanely mishearing the lyrics?

    General Commentisn't it "and for that i'd say it's worth it, just use a blade that's short and sharp on me"? haha at least that's what i thought it was. this is such, such, such a good song! obvioiusly it's about someone being unlucky in love, but they still have hope that one day it will work out. and i think we can all kind of relate to that.
