Come up with me, love
We'll disappear in the evening light
Come up with me, love,
Into a world that's sparkly bright
That's the way it's for me, love
Takes just a little to give me life
That's the way its for me, love
Takes just a touch to drop a stop
On the top of the world

One is just too many, yeah
You know twenty is never enough
You know one is too many, yeah
You know twenty is never enough

Who wouldn't believe, love?
Been like it since the day i was born
You wouldn't believe, love
Stuck in a pod like a poisonous dog
You wouldn't believe, love
Swim down to the bottom and never come up
You wouldn't believe, love
Give my last buck just for
A cup after cup after cup

One is just too many, yeah
You know twenty is never enough
You know hate we got plenty of
It's love that's never enough
One is just too many, yeah
You know twenty is never enough

Lie to me sometime
I'll take you home
Cause it's love to be
Till the day we'll three
We'll spread this seed
In a murdering spree

One is just too many, yeah
You know twenty is never enough
You know hate we got plenty of
It's love that's never enough
You know one is too many, yeah
You know plenty is never enough
You know chores we got plenty of
It's love that's never enough

    General CommentThis shins did a splendid job on this . . . i think the song is about once you have a little of something you love, there's no satiating your want for it. But idk thats just an idea.

    General Commentthis song is about loving someone and how you can never have enough of them. rather explainable song.
    personally i think the original isn't as good as the shins version (unpopular opinion, i know haha)

    General CommentI think this song is about addiction, specifically alchoholism- If your an alchoholic one is too many and after that first one plenty is never enough. Listen to the song again w/ that in mind and you'll see much suppoting this idea including the lines Till the day we'll three/ We'll spread this seed alluding to alchoholism's hereditary nature.
