"Twilight Omens" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
I wrote your name upon the back of my hands
Slept upon it and I woke up with it
Backwards on my face
Reading forwards to my mirror
To my heart

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name, baby
Should I give you a call
And I say,
Baby, you still feel the same.

I typed your number into my calculator
Where it's spelled as your word
When you turn it upside down
You can turn my dirty world
The bright way round

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name
Should give you a call
And I say,
Oh, maybe I still feel the same.
Twilight omens in my life
Keep hearing your name [Repeat: x3]
Keep hearing you sing your name

    General CommentIt sounds like he's waking up in the early morning (twilight) and remembers he got a girl's number the night before, but keeps seeing signs as to why he should or shouldn't give her a call. The number rubbing off on his face and being backward but looking normal through a mirror could mean that's she's deceptive. But then he hears her name on the radio (what he sees as a good omen) and contemplates giving her a call. Later with her number on a calculator (58008 is the only thing I can think of that would make sense when flipped upside down on a calculator), which I'm guessing he also sees as a good omen.

    General CommentI wrote your name upon the back of my hand

    Reading forwards from my mirror to my heart

    I just love those lines.
    They're so clever.
    And the calculator part.
    I remember how people used to make '1134' spell out hello or hell when i was in elementary school...

    General CommentLoved that calculator lyric especially. Bit of an old joke from school really, but type 5318008 into your caculator 'n turn it upside down... 'nuff said.

    Made me smile anyway...

    General CommentI saw it as him being obsessed with this girl, and thinking he's seeing omens which mean they're meant to be together.
