"Nightdogs" as written by and Stuart Mclamb....
Well, you found the butterflies
It's funny how we're alike
Is your tummy full tonight like mine?
Wine flights of cheap champagne
And that night we stayed up late
For the sunrise that never came
Through the clouds and pouring rain

Oh, tease, I bet you're sitting in a pile
Of stolen LPs on your dirty floor
Wish you were here with me
I'm doing better now
But I've still got the disease

You're an artist with a steady wrist
And I'm just a sad scientist singing
About who I kissed last night
In your shoes, I'd walk a mile
It takes one to know once in a while I do (feel blue, too)

And the worst thing about the changing weather
Is the leaves turn and you ain't no better
And you'll never be
That's the beauty of those lovely leaves
I've still got the disease
I've still got the disease

    My Interpretationi think this song is about a girl he had a small fling with, like a one night stand or something, and he kind of fell for her and wants to continue seeing her but she won't agree or shes kind of bad news (she stole (LPs), she gave him an std (disease)? something like that), so it will never be. so hes just sort of reminiscing and dreaming about their night and her. it's quite sweet, i think. a love cut short by circumstance.

    General Commenti think it's about getting involved with a girl he was friends with. he is in love with her (the disease), and they had one romantic night together, but it wasn't anything real for her. he waited for "the sunrise" but they never ended up together. time goes on, but he can never really get over her, even though he knows she isn't good and doesn't love him back.

    General CommentI think the disease mentioned is figurative as opposed to literal. He has the "disease" of affection for the girl even though she, throughout the song, is portrayed as undesirable.

    General Commentactually it's about a friend of the lead singer, who was using the name "lovely leaves" as his band name. They exchanged songs and the original titles were Stu im blue and Tim im grim. No girls involved
