"Question" as written by and Miller Peeples....
She woke from a dream
Her head was on fire
Why was he so nervous?
He took her to the park
She crossed her arms
And lowered her eyelids

[Chorus]
Someday somebody's gonna ask you
A question that
You should say "yes" to
Once in your life
Maybe tonight
I've got a question for you

She'd had no idea
Started to cry,
She said in a good way
He took her by the hand
Walked her back home
They took the long way

[Chorus]

    General CommentI love this song! The little things about it really stand out: I think the switch from "maybe" to "baby" is a nice touch. I also love the way Rhett Miller's (awesome) voice raises up on the "yes," like an ecstatic female's voice would.

    General CommentI saw Rhett at a solo show in NYC in 2000, before the CD was recorded and I believe it was one of the first times he played this song in public. He told the story of being in England and a friend had just proposed to his girlfriend and he was inspired to write it after that. He said she was an actress and very dramatic - I believe her name is Scarlett. I don't remember it all, but the way he told the story is great. If you can ever see him perform solo, you should. He always has great banter between songs and you'll find out great background info on a lot of them.
