"You're So Right" as written by and Julian Casablancas Nick Fraiture....
Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
If you like
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Every night

What are the reasons
What are the reasons
What are the reasons
To follow
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
Nothing

In my eye, even though
They are worms in the dirt

I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
Hello, forest

I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
Something more

In my eye, even though
They are worms in the dirt

I don't want to fight
Don't wanna beg
You and me

I don't want to fight
Don't wanna beg
You and me

I don't want to fight
Don't wanna beg
You and me
Why?

I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
Think you would
I wouldn't hurt you
I wouldn't hurt you
I'd never even hurt you if I could

    My InterpretationA lot of Strokes song are about relationships/one night stands/ or just situations with women in general. I think this is no different. It's almost like this is going on in the guy's head, it reminds me of Radiohead a little bit:

    Tell me what happened
    If you like
    Get off on the same floor
    Get off on the same floor
    Get off on the same floor
    Every night

    -I think he messed it up with her somehow and is trying to figure out why.. he wishes she would tell him the real reason, maybe it's on his mind especially when he comes home alone at the end of every day.


    What are the reasons
    What are the reasons
    What are the reasons
    To fall out
    I wanna tell you
    I wanna tell you
    I wanna tell you
    Nothing

    -He trys to understand why they don't talk anymore, he thinks it's B.S. mostly because she wasn't honest about it.


    Girl, I am on
    At anytime
    Girl, I want at any town

    Im done with the office
    Hello, forest

    I still want to ask you
    Something more

    -I think he could be proving himself here (to her), he can do or handle anything, ready to be free with her... he can't so he still wants to know why.


    I dont want to fight
    Dont wanna make
    You and me

    I dont wanna argue
    I dont wanna argue
    I dont wanna argue
    If you want
    I want a ...

    If I could

    -He did ask her to be honest OR he wants her to be but she's dodged the issue. Either way, by the end he doesn't want to force them together, but he's still got feelings and is a little confused/pissed off. Not sure if he says anything other than "I want a..." but whatever it is he can't have it.



    I could be way wrong about this but it's just how I read it, this album comes at you at different angles (haha) but this song is my favorite.

    Lyric Correction"Never once giving them"
    Isn't it "never once gave a damn"?

    I don't want to fight
    don't want to beg,
    You anymore

    General CommentChorus:

    If I fight and I die
    Girl, I wanted to die


    This is really weird, but it makes sense, if you think about it. I think that's what he's saying through all that heavy synth and distortion anyway.

    Lyric CorrectionI definitely hear it as:

    I don't want to fight
    Don't want to beg
    You anymore

    And at the end:

    I wouldn't hurt you
    I wouldn't hurt you
    Well, maybe I'd hurt you if I could
