"Lalita" as written by and Stuart Mclamb....
We've got one more to go
And the last one was a mistake
I'd pour you another
But I think I heard the bottle break
On the bedroom floor
And we'll count the hours awake
'Cause I see no sense in sleeping
Only to wake up much too late
Oh, Anna Leigh, it's not that I'm scared, I've got to
Wait for the air to call you

Lalita, don't you hate these kisses?
I know that we're not in
But we're in love with everyone that is
We're talking tiny conversations
Like they're harmless
Oh, don't you know that I know it's a sin?

We've got one more to go
An the last one nearly killed me
I'm talking to the devil but
I think I heard an angel sing (la la la)
And this year has just begun
So don't count your blessings yet
Let's take a walk, but I think we'd better watch our step
Oh, Anna Leigh, lay down beside me
I'm in need of rest
I'm looking for a hand to guide me
Far away from the rest
Are we moving too fast?

Lalita, don't you hate these kisses?
I know that we're not in
But we're in love with everyone that is
I'm making tiny conversations
And though they're charmless
I'm hoping that they'll bring you back again

    My OpinionNot to be a prick but I think these lyrics are more accurate

    We got one more to go
    And the last one was a mistake
    I'd pour you another
    But it think I heard the bottle brake
    On your bedroom floor
    We'll count the hours away
    Cause I see no sense in sleeping
    Only to wake up
    Much too late
    Oh and I mean
    It's not that I'm scared
    I've got to
    Wait for the end to call you

    Lalita
    Don't you hate these kisses?
    I know that we're not in
    But we're in love with everyone that is
    We're talking
    Tiny conversations
    Like they're harmless
    But you know that ain't what you sell

    We got one more to go
    And the last one nearly killed me
    I'm talking to the devil but I
    Think I heard an angel sing
    La la la la
    And this year has just begun
    So don't count your blessings yet
    Let's take a walk
    But I think we better watch our steps
    Oh and I read
    "Lay down beside me
    I'm in need of rest
    I'm looking for a hand to guide me
    Far away from the rest
    Are we moving too fast?"

    Lalita
    Don't you hate these kisses?
    I know that we're not in
    But we're in love with everyone that is
    I'm making
    Tiny compositions
    And though they're charming
    I know they'll never bring you back again

    General CommentThanks a lot for the person who put those lyrics! I've been waiting for them for so long...
    Anyway, 'Lalita' is definitely my favourite track on this album, I've been loving this song for its rhythms, melodie, energy...and I love it even more now that I know its lyrics...
    I think it's about drinking some shots of vodka (or tequilla, whatever) ('We've got one more to go, and the last one nearly killed me' + 'I heard the bottle break') and the rest is about their 'drunk-state of mind' I take it...
    Anyway, GREAT SONG, definitely one of the best of 2009.

    General Commentso, this song is actually about the singer's relationship with an underage girl, hence the reference to "lolita." she was 16 or 17 when they dated, joined the band for a little while, but i'm pretty sure they broke up because stu is a douche.

    My OpinionAnyone else think this song is about the book Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov??
    I mean the content of the story fit really well with the song..plus its nearly the same name.
