"Down About It" as written by and Morgan Dando....
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Toss the beginning and try to live it down
Work my way out
I get so down about it

It gets the same every time I shy
Away from the blame and I stand my time
But you still wonder why
I get so down about it

She's gonna give me all the time I need
To finish it
And if I can't, I'll sleep
Over

And out like a light when it's not plugged in
Fading around if it starts again
You just don't get it when
I get so down about it

Drop you a hint that I hope you don't catch
You fumble your keys and I throw the latch
You're still worried that
I've been so down about it

She's gonna give me all the time I need
To finish it
And if I can't, I'll sleep
Over

Out of it so I hoped she'd be there
Talked to her as we climbed the stairs
And I told her

Don't you know
I get so down about it
Don't you know
I get so down about it

    General CommentAnother Evan Dando co-write which had already been on a Lemonheads release (1993’s Come On Feel The Lemonheads). Vaguely melancholy, with a nice yearning touch.

    Tom Morgan: “That was written when we were touring with The Lemonheads in Australia – we wrote that in Perth. Originally it was called Her Guitar, and the chord progression is descending so that’s where we got the title Down About It, because it was going down.”
