I think I could love
You people
I think I could love
Some of you people

If you weren't so afraid
Of what you dont know
Sometimes you're so afraid
Of what you don't know
But you say that that's not so

Can you see your children
Looking to the sea
I have watched all your children
Looking to the sea

If you just would understand
But you won't know
You never understand
And so you won't know
But you'll say that that's not so
And you'll say that that's not so

It's so frightening to see you burn
It's so beautiful to watch you cry
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
Still you'll say that that's not so

I think I can love
You people
Sometimes I think I could love
Some of you people
If you weren't so afraid

    General CommentI have no clue...It could be about people in France, hence the Lay Playa part...

    It's a great song though

    General CommentLa Playa means "the beach" in Spanish, yes.

    As for what this song means, my explanation might be completely off, but I'm going to run with it. To me, it sounds like it's being sung from the viewpoint of someone non-human or someone otherwise not part of the "normal". And even though he doesn't fully understand how everyone else operate, he observes them, and wants to join them. To me, it's almost like a Frankenstein's monster kind of idea. He's lonely, and has an innocent sort of wisdom, but people are afraid of him or what he has to say.

    Boy Hits Car owns my soul, period. They're so underrated.
