"Every Double Life" as written by and Matthew Pryor....
These are models of my own design
Two circles never meeting
One in 92 and 95
And it's all been up to me

I may not listen to my own advice
It can be so overwhelming
There are strains on every double life
But you won't hear me complain

Yes it's true, you knew
You believed it
You should just turn
And walk away

Took a compliment and photograph
And committed it to memory
Model of how not to act
At least not imitate

I wouldn't it have been ideal
If it all fell down from Heaven
And how am I supposed to feel?
When I know what you did wrong

Yes it's true, you knew
You believed it
You should just turn
And walk away

Yes it's true, you knew
I was leaving
We're under the same
Skyline today

    General CommentOh my gosh, this song sounds almost exactly like a Jimmy Eat World song, but I can't remember what it's called. It's a really good song, though. But the JEW one (while the recording quality of it is crappy as hell) has some lines in it that go "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 all clear, I can hear/ And I'm not gonna share you with no one/ Surprise, I've got eyes/ Now goodbye..." Both EXCELLENT songs. Check out the JEW one on the singles album.

    General Commentemostartistchik...the song is called "spangle" and i know what you mean, they sound exactly the same...well, if "spangle" had been acoustic. it's bizarre. a good song nonetheless.

    General Comment this song seems like its a response to Spangle. "two circles never meeting" is like she's hiding two guys from eachother. and in Spangle, the narrator found out he was being cheated on and had to let her go.
