"Needing/Getting" as written by and Timothy Nordwind Damian Kulash....
I've been waiting for months, waiting for years, waiting for you to change.
Aw, but there ain't much that's dumber, there ain't much that's dumber
than pinning your hopes on a change in another.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

So I been sitting around, wasting my time, wondering what you been doing.
Aw, and it ain't real forgiving, it ain't real forgiving sitting here picturing someone else living.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

I've been hoping for months, hoping for years, hoping I might forget.
Aw but it don't get much dumber, it don't get much dumber
than trying to forget a girl when you love her.
And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

When? When? Why not now? Why not me? Why not me?

    General CommentI love this song. My favorite parts are when it's all of them singing a capella "Aw but it don't get much dumber, it don't get much dumber than trying to forget a girl when you love her" and then at the end, the long instrumental part. When I listen to it, I feel like it's raining on a really calm day. So beautiful.

    I feel like Damian had some sort of revelation with this record. His lyrics in the past have been pretty blunt and cynical. This album's lyrics are a little bit sweeter. Sounds like he or someone else in the band (Damian doesn't just write from his own experiences as far as I know) is really in love. I know they're all in relationships... But the songs. Sometimes they're really hopeful, sometimes they're really sad, sometimes just plain sexy. Like, we hear songs like "Last Leaf" and it's so cute and sweet but just a little bit sad. A longing feeling. But then we hear "WTF?" and IWYSBICB and they're downright sexy. This song I feel like is more straight up until the very end.

    Okay I'm done :)
