I have to sneak in and put on your oil
You will know where I’ve been, but I need the protection
Oh, what a strange and miraculous thing
to finally recognize what is driving me crazy

All that I want was here, now it’s gone
All that I want was here, now it’s gone

Don’t be angry, I don’t disagree
It is fear that I left back close on the highway
But I’d like to know if you ever told yourself
I could’ve once given your life some meaning
All that I want was here, now it’s gone
All that I want was here, now it’s gone
All that I want was here, now it’s gone
All that I want was here, now it’s gone

Don’t be angry, I will die lonely
Don’t be angry, I will die lonely
Don’t be angry, I will die lonely

Don’t want you, and you will see that I will die so very lonely
(Don’t be angry
And don’t be angry)

    General Commenti have to sneak in and put on your oil
    you will know where i've been but i need the protection
    oh what a strange and miraculous thing
    to finally recognize what is driving me crazy

    all that i want was here now it's gone
    all that i want was here now it's gone

    don't be angry, i don't disagree
    it is clear that i left my clothes on the highway
    but i'd like to know if you ever told yourself
    i could have once given your life some meaning

    all that i want was here now it's gone
    all that i want was here now it's gone
    all that i want was here now it's gone
    all that i want was here now it's gone

    don't be angry, i will die lonely


    Here are the correct lyrics, directly from the the cd booklet. Lower case I-s no punctuation and everything. Exactly from the book I stress. Please change. There may also be mistakes in the other lyrics. Here's an uploaded scanned image of the lyric page. img517.imageshack.us/…

    General CommentThe line "don't be angry, i will die lonely" pretty much sums up this song for me. Don't think any explanation could do it better than that.

    General CommentI think of this song as the doppelgänger of "I Won't Share You". By putting this similarly sad, largely acoustic song at the end of their last EP, the Organ in my opinion was saluting the Smiths, whose last record Strangeways, Here We Come ended with "I Won't Share You". The song is eloquently dismal and leaves that same hollow feeling inside, especially when you know the likes of the Smiths and the Organ come really rare.

    General CommentReminds me of the death of the band. Katie always sounds so cheated in interviews; it's quite sad, really.

    General Commenti think it's about a very bad breakup, or a big fight with someone you love about being too depressive.

    General Comment-The person in this song doesn't feel "secure" within the relationship anymore, they feel the need to rely on superstitions (put on your oil, back in the day people used "snake oil" for protection from everything like baldness to death(btw there is no snake oil))
    -Because of this, they're cutting their losses for what they think is a doomed relationship because they don't think they're worth the trouble they're causing.
    -They go on to tell their partner, "Don't be sad or angry with me for ending us... you're going to find someone new and be happy one day. I, on the other hand, will never find happiness and will die alone."

    Pretty tragic way to go through life. Anyhoo, just my two cents.
