Just lonely, baby--doesn't mean I'm looking for a friend.
I've got plenty, I'm still learning how to lay down my life for them.
Don't want to find yourself alone at thirty-five,
spending half what you make on your car (and hating that drive).
Just crazy, maybe--doesn't mean I'm looking for a cure.
I've got stability that scares you, 'cause it's hard to believe when you're
so sure.
No matter how different you are, you're just like everybody else.
No matter how hard you try and fit in, there is no one like you.
You will find you spend a good deal of your life, sitting at red lights

    General Commentthis is definately a great song, and the new version of this that they play live now is even better....but the best gloria record song is "i was born in omaha"

    Gives me shivers everytime.
    But it isn't their best song.
    Best song award would probably go to "Omaha" or "Salvation Army". Or "... and is it ever?".
    But maybe Ambulance is their best song.
    "Cinema Air" isn't that bad either,...

    General CommentI think "A Bye" takes Mineral's "holy sound" even further so Id say thats my favourite but "A Lull In Traffic" is one of the best in my opinion

    General CommentThis song is about compromising with someone you love.

    It's about meeting halfway, and finding a balance, and drifting with that balance.
