"I've Got Your Number" as written by and Michael Angelakos....
I've always felt so scared of all this needing
Everyone that I've met has been somewhat mistreated
That's how it feels when you know that something's wrong.

Then you came along like a swan off of the lake
You flew across my eyes and out into space,
And I ran and I crawled and I chased to get out fast.

That's what I did' (Whoa!)

If there's just one thing you got to remember;
Is to write down your name and your phone number
That way I'll have it and we'll make something out of this mess, oh!

And if all else fails then the ship won't set sail.
God forbid but I guess the both of us will bail
But as far as I can tell I think things will be swell.

Have you seen me cry tears like diamonds
Down and down they fly, faster and faster like the speed of our love
Batting a thousand, but a homerun crack at love
This is where I tell you that, I know love's what I need to work at

So now the two of us rely on each other
With our premonitions out in the gutter
Who would have thought that I'd make it this far

I'll make it seem like I'm stronger but I'm quite the actor
And now I'm so caught up and I can't escape this pattern
But when I started losing hope, there you were, there you bloomed

Have you seen me cry tears like diamonds
Down and down they fly, faster and faster like the speed of our love
Batting a thousand, but a home run crack at love
This is where I tell you that, I know love's what I need to work at
(Whoa!)

Diggy diggy diggy diggy diggy boom boom!
Diggy diggy diggy diggy diggy boom boom!
Diggy diggy diggy diggy diggy boom boom!
Diggy diggy diggy diggy diggy boom boom!

Have you seen me cry tears like diamonds
Down and down they fly, faster and faster like the speed of our love
Batting a thousand, but a home run crack at love
This is where I tell you that, I know love's what I need to work at, oh
What I need to work at, oh

    General Commenti think this is about the vulnerability of falling in love. his scared if things get emotionally deeper, but his able to rely on his partner to pick him up again.

    he sets the impression in the first and second paragraph about how he does feel lonely, and after laying eyes on her, it was love wherein getting her number was the first step to things eventuating -- he is uncertain how it'll turn out, but he stays optimistic.

    the chorus, i reckon, is the most beautiful part of this song. he states that his tears fall down as fast as falling in love. the way i understood this was that, even w/ love's many ups and downs, he believes "a homerun crack at love" is worth it all.

    the last verse, he questions whether he can continue doing this -- keeping the relationship going. but states that, whenever he fails to, she's there to keep it going. i really this line: "But when I started losing hope, there you were, there you bloomed".

    this is how i feel right now lol.

    These lines are perfect. They tie it all together. It's all about making it work when it doesn't work for you.
