"Pick U Up" as written by Adam Lambert, Greg Wells and Rivers Cuomo....
Jumpin' out the window
Movin' on, groovin' on
Which way will the wind blow?
We can't be wrong, so say "So long"
Imma pick you up, Imma pick you up
Whatcha tryin' to say to me?
Catch the train at two, what you try'na do?
Are you gonna play with me?

[Chorus]
All my life, I've been waiting
Pass my time, procrastinating now
It's a trip, Imma flip
And flash right through the scene
Can't you see what I mean?

Breaking through the boundaries
Rollin' on, strollin' on
They won't ever find me
After all, we'll have a ball
Imma pick you up, Imma pick u up
We're gonna see where we can go
This is how I live, this is what I give
And you're the one I want to know

[Chorus]

Tiny minded two-toned suckers
Same old faces make me shudder
Countless times I've screamed oh brother!
Where are you? I need someone to be my lover!

[Chorus]

It's a trip, Imma flip
And flash right through the scene
Can't you see what I mean?

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song from FYE, the vocals are TERRIFIC and I can't get over the "someone to be my loverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" that he hits, oh! I wuv Adam :) This is the best, lyrics are nice, about how you just want to leave and do it with someone.

    General CommentProbably the best song on the album. It really shows off his vocals and has a great, unique pop sound.

    I think it's just about throwing out an older life and going off to do what you want and become the person you want to be despite the people in your past--and taking someone along for the ride.

    General CommentI would say this is a more theatrical, rock version of Madonna's "Jump!" from her Confessions on the Dancefloor album, though more so finding that relational purpose in life specifically.

    General CommentI love this song! One of the best on the album. His voice is amazing and he carries a lot of meaning in it while he sings. I still can't get over the part where he says "someone to be my lover"...it's pure talent. Adam Lambert is the best! And I'm with you, punky888. I'd be his lover too if it weren't for that minor detail.

    General CommentProbably the best lyrics ever written:

    “All my life, I’ve been waiting
    Pass my time procrastinating now
    It’s a trip
    On a flip
    And flash right through the scene
    Can’t you see what I mean?”

    “Tiny-minded two-tone suckers
    Same old faces make me shudder
    Countless times I’ve screamed “Oh, brother!”
    Where are you?
    I need someone to be my lover!”

    And the “I need someone to be my lover” part never gets old! ;)
