"Don't Rush" as written by and Hunter Burgan Tegan Rain Quin....
Don't block, bad idea,
You've been so good I hear,
Don't rush.
Don't move, bad idea,
You've been so still, I'm here for you
Don't rush.
One way or another,
I'll find my way to cover,
I sing to find my other,
Sing to find my,
One way my lovely other
They find restless cover,
You sing to another,
Sing to find your
Don't leave, bad idea,
You've been so far so long,
Don't rush.
Don't run, bad idea,
You move so fast,
I need to rush.
One way or another,
I'll find my way to cover,
I sing to find my other,
Sing to find my
One way my lovely other,
They find restless cover,
You sing to another,
Sing to find your
One way or another,
I'll find my way to cover,
I'd love to find my other,
Love to find you,
One way my lovely other,
They'll find restless cover,
You've loved so many others,
One way to erase bad ideas,
Well I won't see you once you arrive.
One way to escape bad ideas,
Well I won't cry to you, not that you would mind.
One way to erase bad ideas,
Well I won't see you once you arrive.
One way to escape bad ideas,
Well I won't cry to you, not that you would mind.
One way or another,
I'll find my way to cover,
I sing to find my other,
Sing to find my
One way my lovely other,
They find restless cover,
You sing to another,
Sing to find your
One way or another,
I'll find my way to cover,
I'd love to find my other,
Love to find you
One way my lovely other,
They'll restless cover,
You've loved so many others

    Song MeaningYou guys will get a KICK out of this.
    In an interview, Tegan said this song was originally called "Bad Idea" because that was the name she had the girl she was interested in listed as.
    And, this was her reminder to not call too much, don't rush .. have a reminder in your phone to not call her when drunk or sad or something that will rush things in that state or mind .....because it's a BAD IDEA.

    General CommentI know the line: "They'll buy your restless cover (?)" is something else, I just can't tell. The last word sounds like it could be "covet," I don't know.

    General CommentI'm not sure about this song at all. Is it about songwriting and having an idea flash by, but can't hold it or is it about something deeper and about relationships? lol, i'm too stupid.

    General Commenti'm not sure about this song, but i think the part i'm most curious about is "...one way my lovely other, they'll find restless cover, you've loved so many others."

    what do you think she means, particularly in reference to the "you've loved so many others"?
