"Haywired" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
I must have had a peculiar kinda charm
for you to fall in love with me
With my birds nest hair, pumper arms (?)
I thought you'd never think of me
My heart and mind they were a circus,
my thoughts and vision had no focus
on what's in front of me
I thought my eye had been asleep a thousand years
and life would remain a mystery

Oh please don't break me from this spell
I found a little heaven in this world of hell
oh I'm a bad liar
I miss you so much
I go haywire

Lost my mind on New Year's Eve
Put a hole inside my head
I knew i'd marry you
The self-destructive don't believe
that there's a chrisis they can leave
and then I married you
I know many different people who keep on falling in love, with the idea of love
Take your head out of the clouds, carefree bagavond, it comes to all of us

Oh please don't break me from this spell
I found a little heaven in this world of hell
oh I'm a bad liar
I miss you so much
I go haywire

It's not easy to be happy, get away with it
(x10)

    My InterpretationEccentric boy meets girl. Thinks that she would never notice him. (But she does.) His mind was racing and chaotic, love-struck. Then he felt like he was in a dream, he "felt I'd been asleep for a thousand years, and life would remain a mystery." He doesn't want to wake up from this 'dream', yet he misses her and it makes him crazy. Then he 'lost his mind' and decided that he wanted to marry her, but had to get past self-destructive tendencies? He had to get his head out of the clouds to recognize the real thing from 'falling in love with love'.
    But, in the end, and this is my favorite part: "Its not easy to be happy, GET AWAY WITH IT."
