In case you were wondering
I can't get comfortable in my own skin
But it was bound to happen

In case you were wondering,
I'm twenty three and avoiding the bar scene,
Lycra pants, and designer jeans.
In case you were wondering,
I'm staying in.
I won't smell like cheap perfume or cigarettes tonight.

And every word that I said got drowned out by a dance remix of a pop song I don't care about.
In case you forgot how bad I've been down, just ask around 'cause you know this town loves to run its mouth.

Say, say you'll stay in with me today.
Say, say you'll stay.
'Cause you won't find me on the north Jersey club scene
With the Girls Gone Wild B-team.
I don't need to pump my fist to look sweet.

In case you were wondering,
I promised myself that I would try to be more social at parties.
Can someone tell these kids liking the rain no longer counts as an idiosyncrasy.
In fact, I think that Rupert Holmes wrote a song about it in the '70s.
And consequently, he also saved the Pina Colada industry.


Say, say you'll stay in with me today.
Say, say you'll stay.
'Cause you won't find me on the north Jersey club scene
With the Girls Gone Wild B-team.
I don't need to pump my fist to look sweet.

Say, say, say, say you'll stay.
Say, say, say, say you'll stay.

I can't believe I ended up here again watching this terrible band play songs I hate in the basement.
I can't believe that I got stuck here again while the kid with the dreads tells me he's smarter on acid.
I can't believe that I'm not running away so just say,

Say, say you'll stay.

    General CommentI'm really glad I came across this band, because literally every song on The Upsides has something I can relate to right now.

    General CommentIt's definitely lycra pants. Jersey girls are known for wearing them.

    General CommentThe "terrible band play[ing] songs I hate in the basement" was a band covering Sublime.
    Just through that out there.

    General Comment"Liking the rain no longer counts as an idiosyncrasy"

    Meas like, as we grow older, being unique is more than just "like the rain", which is pretty cliche. Everyone thinks they are so individual for liking something that a million others like. The uniqueness of pop culture is lacking. Everyone is so trendy. Pretty self-explanatory. Pretty damn true.
