I wish we
were stuck up a tree
then we'd know
it's nicer below

I don't know any lullabys
I don't know how
to make you mine
but I can learn
in lonely days ago
I saw lovers put on a show
well now it's my turn

Drive you home
then wait by the phone
for that call
and a walk in the fall

no harm will come of this
one little midnight kiss
it will not burn
too many lonely days
I feel like a throw away
well now it's my turn

Falling down
is nolonger around
feeling sun
I'm no longer one
well isn't this fun?

    General CommentI love the second verse of this song because it has this sweetness to it. It's just such a great thought. However, when placed with the music, it doesn't have the same meaning. The lyrics to this song are amazing, in my opinion, and the music gives it a meaning that most people wouldn't expect

    General CommentThis song is awesome, in how it breaks all the rules of music. Like verse-chorus-verse-chorus-different verse-chorus to fade.
    I think this song is about a man who isn't sure how to approach a relationship with a woman. Then when they become a pair, we are all made to realise that relationships suck.

    General Commenti like it when songs are not only lyrically sad, bad also the music conveys a strong sadness as well. This song certainly does that, especially the end.

    General CommentI always thought this was a positive song. Basically, he wants to be in a relationship, and he feels "like a throw-away" because everyone else is pairing off..except him. But now it's his turn to get in on it. He doesn't really know how to get someone to be his, but he's willing to learn (hence the title) and try new things. He gets a date and waits by the phone after for her to call him. Things continue to go well between them (the "midnight kiss") and in the end, it seems like he's happy. He's no longer "falling down", and he's "no longer one", in other words, he's finally with somebody. It does sound kind of dreary in the end music-wise, but I always thought this song had a happy ending. That's my spin on it, anyways.

    General CommentIthink this song is about guy who hasn´t never ever been in love, and he is really tired to watch all the lovers.

    "I saw lovers put on a show
    well now it's my turn."

    But finally he is fall in love with the girl, and now he is in the "lovers´ side", singing to the guys who haven´t been in love.

    "I'm no longer one
    well isn't this fun?"

    General CommentI also see a kind of sexual reference.. like losing virginity..
    actually, about a boy trying to persuade a girl (probably his girlfriend or whatever) to do it..


    "I don't know any lullabys
    I don't know how
    to make you mine
    but I can learn"
    (he's trying to let her know that he's as inexperienced as her)


    "I saw lovers put on a show
    well now it's my turn"
    (he used to watch porn? haha come on.. any teenager has done that)


    "no harm will come of this
    one little midnight kiss
    it will not burn"
    (he's not trying to harm her, he wants to do it out of love)





    I don't know.. I may be wrong
