"Spangle" as written by David Gedge, Simon Smith, Paul Dorrington and Darren Belk....
I'm glad you found the time to ring.
I just spent all day waiting.
I need to know what's happening.
Well at least we both agree.

Really don't know where to start.
Did you say you met some neighbor.
I guess I'm headed for a broken heart.
Why are you doing this to me?

It's so clear.
I can hear, and I'm not gonna share you with no one.
Surprise, I've got eyes, now goodbye.
How long have you had this planned?

Guess it shows how much you care.
Now I understand how I just played the fool.
Sure I'm gonna let you go.
I was wrong to ever trust you.

Don't think that you'll ever know how you could be so cruel.
It's so clear.
I can hear, and I'm not gonna share you with no one.
Surprise, I've got eyes, now goodbye.

    General CommentThis song was originally by a band called The Wedding Present. it's pretty obviously about a break up and the feeling of humiliation that comes with it.

    General CommentI listened to this song non-stop right after me and my ex-gf broke up after trying a long distance thing the first few weeks of college. I particularly like the lyrics:
    "Really don’t know where to start.
    Did you say you met some neighbor.
    I guess I’m headed for a broken heart."
    cuz it pretty much epitomizes what happened, caring so much for a girl and then having her just go after some other guy just b/c he lives conveniently across the hall.

    General CommentI can hear the same vocal melody in The New Amsterdams song - Every double life. Whats up with that? I guess they both really like the Wedding Present

    General CommentSong kicks arse. Along with all the songs on Singles.

    But I mostly love the version of Cautioners that's on the UK release. Oh yes.

    General CommentI listen to this song non-stop... It is so literally beautiful... It makes me cry soo hard... My favorite part is when he says "Sure I’m gonna let you go.
    I was wrong to ever trust you.
    Don’t think that you’ll ever know how you could be so cruel.". The "ever know" part is my FAVORITE...
