"After the Last Midtown Show" as written by William E Beckett Jr, Michael Carden, Michael Chislett, Andy Mrotek, David Katz and Sam Hollander....
It's a drunken midnight on the streets
Brightly dusted with a neon light
We duck behind the corner store
Smoke your smokes while I keep
A watchful eye
Right here, right now
I hope before the night is through
One fumbled touch will finally hit the spot
You've got everything going for you
So I'll go for you with everything I got
Right here, the best days of our lives
Is this coincidence or a sign?

Is there anything I missed?
Is there anything I missed?
Tell me if I'm wrong
But why would we change a thing?

When the morning light fights through the cracks
Cascading across the bed, and you are mine
When your parents start to wake for work
Between the sheets, I'll keep a watchful eye
Right here, the best days of our lives
Is this coincidence or a sign?

When we met I was on my back
I swear we spent most afternoons
Somewhere in the act
We were part of something ours
And ours alone
Anywhere was home
We're almost here again
We're almost here again
We're almost here again
Right here, right now

    General CommentThis song obviously has a connection to 'Beware! Cougar!' from the lines
    "When we met I was on my back.
    I swear we spent most afternoons
    Somewhere in the act."
    Hmm.. It doesn't really seem that it's the same girl as in the other song though. There she's too old for him, and here he's keeping a watchful eye out for her parents.
    This seems to be just a simple and fun relationship with no worries, in contrast to the one i mentioned with the older woman. This one comes with no obligations. And he would like it to stay that way forever.

    There may just be a connection from song to song on this record. I dont really know yet but i cant wait to find out first thing when it's released! This may lead over to the Summer Hair = Forever Young one.

    William just realized he's growing older you people :)

    General Commenti might be mistaken, but i thought it was 'after the last MIDTOWN show' ?

    General CommentMidton was Gabe Saporta's (Cobra Starship) old, amazing band. 100 times better than Cobra btw.

    I think this song is possibly about connecting breaking up/losing someone to losing your favorite band.

    The 'We're almost here again' part made me sad. I was such a big fan of Almost Here.

    General Comment"A song about the only girl I’ve ever loved… A nervous night with her after the last midtown show"
    Said by Beckett. Clear and easy to understand.


    And Midtown kicks Cobra's ass to the curb.

    General CommentBest song on the album, for sure.

    The end is definitely a throwback to their debut... "our time is almost... our time is almost here"

    General Commentthis song is so clearly about young love and kind of just discovering each other. that first time where you feel actually kind of crazy with how much you want the other person.

    "we were part of something ours and ours alone"

    gives me chills.

    General CommentI'm not sure if it's supposed to have a double meaning, but to me the line "We're almost here again" is them saying that they're back to how they used to be. I'm not saying I dislike Santi, but it was really different to Almost Here. I think that Fast Times is more of a continuation of Almost Here whereas Santi was something else entirely and this is them acknowledging that.
