"Delicate Few" as written by and Chirstopher Culos Marc Andrew Roberge....
Amazing how we all want this life a little more everyday.
It's crazy how we pick ourselves up just to let us down anyway.
The one thing that you're missing is loungin' on the log right next to you.
So pick up that precious something and relax for a delicate few.

Amazing how we all want this life a little more everyday.
It's crazy how we pick ourselves up just to let us down anyway.
The one thing that you're missing is loungin' on the log right next to you.
So pick up that precious something and relax for a delicate few.

It's crazy how we all need this time a little more every way.
It's wild how we stay up nights losing part of the day.
The one time that you're loathing is there for you oh so well.
So pick up that precious someone relax for a delicate spell.

Rising up early the sun barely before me I could have sworn I just went to bed.
I smell the blizzard in the air, Winter's bitter love affair.
I grab my coat, my hat, my jacks...I put my hat on my head and I was off again as she said,
Rising up early the sun barely before me, I could have sworn I just laid my head to bed about an
hour ago.

Blizzard in the air, Winter's bitter love affair,
I grab my coat again, hat on my head, lit my jack and I was off again she said,
Rising up early that sun rose barely before me, I could have sworn I just laid my head to bed.
I've got to, but it was so cold, I've got trouble keeping hold of my lady sleeping next to me.

But I swear today, I'm gonna go off in a delicate way and I'll have so much fun I swear.
No matter what goes wrong, I'll be moving on,
I promise you, jack in my mouth, hat on my head, and I was off again she said,
Relax for a delicate few.

Just me and you.
I swear to you true, I do.
Relax for a delicate few.

    General Commentthis is one my favorite O.A.R. songs. to me this song is about taking the time off and just chilling. ill break it down:

    Amazing how we all want this life a little more everyday is saying that we want to be successful in life and we tried so hard for it

    its carzy how we all pick ourselves up just to let us down anyway is syaing that we get amped for all these things but in the end we excited and get let down.

    one thing that your missin' is lounging on the log right next to you is saying that take a break and get away from all the stresses for a bit.

    so pick up that precious something and relax for a delicate few is saying grab something that just reminds of a good time and just chill

    now the faster part to me is saying that the days and nights are going by so fast that all you find yourself doing it working going home and oging to bed. the whole idea of the song is to everynow and then get together with some buddies chill take time off from your stressed everyday and relax for a delicate few

    General CommentThis song to me sounds like he is getting bored with everyday life, and his woman is becoming unhappy with life as well. All he keeps doing though is going to work, coming home, going to bed, going to work... So eventually he comes across a 'bitter love affair'. After having the affair he realizes that he is going to go 'no matter what goes wrong, I’ll be moving on'. He is going to stick with the affair because he already knows that he is 'having trouble keeping hold of my lady sleeping next to me.' He is going to spend a Delicate Few with this affair.

    He is loathing his life and the affair is there for him, also, what he is missing is the affair loungin’ on the log right next to him.

    If this is what the songs meaning is, I think it is horrible, but that doesn't matter. People go thru times like these in their lives and make bad decisions. Sometimes the bad decisions seem right and are easier to deal with at the time.

    General Commenti always thought this song was about a lot of things... or just life in general and advice to go with it. To just take a minute to "smell the roses" instead of moving so fast through life. Or how we get excited for things only to be let down, again and again. My favorite part of this song is "The one thing that you're missing is loungin' on the log right next to you. So pick up that precious something and relax for a delicate few". I always thought this meant that maybe you search everwhere for the perfect person for you (soul mate, i suppose) and, in the end, its the person who is always by your side, but never thought of in that way. Like maybe your best friend. And i think this quote can apply to a lot of other situations, too.
