"My Timing Is Off" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
My timing is off
She isn't ready for my love
It's all that I got
But it's a pretty big thing
That she should recognize
The truth between us cannot hide

She knows that it's real
But the situation doesn't fit
I know what I feel

And I know that this is really
Everything it's all about
And I don't have a single doubt

My timing is off
But sometimes that's how it all works
Believe it or not
We don't have a choice
In matters of the heart

Just gotta be brave enough
To love and let yourself be loved
My timing is off
And I'm not worried 'bout a thing

She knows that it's real
She couldn't throw it all away
For fear of happiness
This isn't like that other mess

    General CommentI'm not a big fan of this group...but this song rocks my sweetness...if this song was made during the 60's it would made such a huge hit.Its about confessing your feeling to the one you love eventhough you know your timing is off...but who cares as long as youve express your feeling and letting know how much you love the girl...the song meaning as to this website is all about.Great song..great album!!!

    General CommentThis song is hilariously and somewhat depressingly what I went through. Haha, but what can you do? Eels as got it right, "you just gotta be brave enough to love and let yourself be loved." So delicious. A++

    MemoryI'm going through this EXACT same thing right now. I'm in love with the most perfect person and I know it's real, but my life is heading in a new direction and I'm scared of what's going to happen to us...the timing is definitely way, way off. But The Eels are so right, haha...we don't have a choice. Sometimes, that's just the way life is. No one just "chooses" to fall in love, it's gunna happen regardless of how inconvenient it may be at the time. You just gotta live life as it goes.

    No, I'm not worried at all, because if he thinks it's real too, then it's totally real and it will last. And he's told me he thinks it is, and I just gotta trust him <3
