"Call Me in the Afternoon" as written by and Conner Molander Devon Portielje....
You can have it if you don't mind some or all others stay with me
You confuse me with your riddles and sudden generosity
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
You can have it when you come by
You can have yourself a one man way
And I saw you when I caught your eye
And its such a petty price to pay
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
Take one if you need it but you shouldn't be out this late
Really want to make you feel home
Take one if you need it but you shouldn't get this fucked up
Really wanna get it to you
Slide another shot by and wipe your dirty hands on me
Swallow til you go blind and find a little company
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
Call me in the afternoon even by one by one
Take one if you need it but you shouldn't be out this late
Really wanna make you feel home
Take one if you need it but you shouldn't get this fucked up
Really wanna get it to you
After all, when I listen, it could be you
Could be anyone I want and I want you

    My InterpretationThis song might be about a bar tender and an alcoholic he likes. In the first verse he reluctantly sells her one drink but says that's it (...all others stay with me). But then he is surprised and flattered by her showing some interest in him. He ends up giving her his phone number (you can call me...). He says she can call and stop by tomorrow afternoon and he will give her another drink, it's a small price for him to pay to see her again (...such a petty price to pay). He ends up giving her a second drink but says she really should be getting home (shouldn't be out this late). He gives her another drink and comments how she's now drunk (...fucked up). He gives her a shot and says to blame it on him (wipe your dirty hands on me). The "swallow till you go blind" is a reference to moonshine--another reference to the fact she's drinking alcohol to the point of danger to herself, but he enjoys her company. Basically in the song he feels guilty about getting her drunk but he's still into her. He kinda wants to take her back to his place and make her "feel home."

    My OpinionDrugs and alcohol related?
    "Take one if you need it but you shouldn't be out this late"
    "Slide another shot by and wipe your dirty hands on me"
    Maybe he loved someone who was deep into something, but he didn't see it as detrimental until later on.
    He shows affection for them by, "Really wanna make you feel home"
