My love I lack the confidence
To say what's on my mind
I guess I'm prone to shake and sweat
Confounded every time
I see you do the things you do
Pale and bright you shine
It goes I need you here with me
I need you just to see me
I need you here with me
Yet it is only a dream to me
I knew that you could save my life
Without a word exchange
Your way with words
So insecure
Can barely speak my name
My crumbled spine and faulty lines
I'm sick, I'm small and strange
I need you here with me
I need you just to see me
I need you here with me
Yet it is only a dream to me
I saw you standing there
Alone with you guitar
Like I was staring into the mirror
Seeing the same sad scar
I want to reach into you
I want to hold you here
But the tremors in your body make it hard to sleep
Yeah the tremors in my body make it hard to speak these words
I need you here with me
I need you just to see me
I need you here with me
Yet it is only a dream to me
I saw you standing there
Alone with your guitar
Staring into the mirror
It goes I need you here with me
I need you just to see me
I need you here with me
Yet it is only a dream to me

    General CommentFavorite song off the album.
    In the third line I hear, "I guess I'm prone to shake and sweat" Other than that good job.

    General Commentso basically, the homo-erotic cover art tells exactly what most of this album is about:
    max bemis and chris conley being in gay love with one another, and singing about it.
    i'd like to see this live to see if they make out.

    i will say this though: its not quite as bad as in defense of the genre was, so that's a plus.

    General CommentI really liked the album, however there is definitely a gay theme to the album. I think the project was written as one singer with two tongues, so they are the same character throughout the album.

    General Commenthaha i don't think it has a homo-theme.

    "Alone with you guitar
    Like I was staring into the mirror
    Seeing the same sad scar
    I want to reach into you
    I want to hold you here"

    I believe this is about max and chris' friendship. max was a huge fan of saves the day growing up. later in life, they became friends. i think chris is saying that max and him are similar in what they are trying to achieve with their music.

    General CommentI was thinking the same thing with the Homo-erotic theme. Mainly because of this song, interlude, and If I could make you do things. If it's not meant to be homo-erotic, then these two must have an extremely close friendship.

    General CommentLike the entire record, this song is so homoerotic but I wouldn't say it's about a gay relationship. More aboout 'mateship' than anything else.
