"Right Now" as written by John Ligertwood, Carlos Santana, Chester Thompson, Orestes D. Vilato and Greg Walker....
She clings to me like cellophane
Fake plastic submarine
Slowly driving me insane
But now that's over

So what if the sex was great
Just a temporary escape
Another thing I grew to hate
But now that's over

Why you always kick me when I'm high
Knock me down till we see eye to eye
Figured her out and while she
May not be Miss Right she'll do right now

I used to hang on every word
Each lie was more absurd
Kept me so insecure
But now that's over

She taught me how to trust
And to believe in us
And then she taught me how to cuss, that bitch!
It's over

You know i used to be such a nice boy

    General CommentNo comments on this one? I think it's cool... very upbeat, kinda cute. I mean, how can you not love "And then she taught me how to cuss... that bitch! It's over"? Hehe...

    General CommentYeah, this is an awesome song, with a kick-ass guitar solo. I think no one is commenting because it doesn't really have any deep meaning.

    Also I think maybe people can't find it because they think the name of the song is "why do you always kick me when i'm high."

    General Commentyea, back to the song meaning...the song is fun, but look at the lyrics.."she clings to me like cellophane" and then the next line is "fake plastic submarine", it just doesnt fit, it seems to have been purposefully placed to rhyme

    General CommentCool, I used to like the song just because it sounded good, but now that I read the lyrics, it's extraordinary :P. Tis about a girl that screwed the relationship. She made believe to the guy he was of some importance...but right now he realizes how dumb and ignorant he was mouahaha. Hopefully they aren't all like that :O

    General CommentThis song just reminds that if your unhappy in a relationship, don't let the other person put you down to the point where you think you can't find another; she may not be perfect but she'll do for now
