Some days you can't help but wake up helpless
The window world has got you all arms ready and
Although I want to cheer you up in the worst way
I can only muscle down a frown
Some days I can't help but wake up helpless
This Goodnight girl has got me all arms ready and
She might sell them all but I can tell
The worth of her three weary words
Not what you would guess
Bow (check) arrow (check) apple (check)
Run for your life
The ride is on fire
All in tune
All of this abandon
I can barely stand it
All in tune
There is a lifetime of fun stuck between
The machinery of your memory
Go get it
This certain sickness that's sure to spin you
But there's remedy in a formula that reads
Easy as one two thirteen
Kelly got caught
Thinking on the clock
All in Tune
Lady is a raven
New Eleanora Fagan
All in Tune
When you come to
Will you come true
Moving like a cloud
Covering your tongue
Breathing out curls of
Smoke into the world
I'm never gonna find you
Never will remind you
To cover up your breath
When you're back up at the desk
Shiver in a storm
We dance to keep warm
Touhy Ave two-step
As animated as I get
The frowning of a lifetime
It always is the right time
Go ahead and try

    General CommentI like this song because besides the lyrics sounding really sincere, and I like the line 'Easy as one, two, thirteen,"...I dont know why. I just like it.

    General Commenti don't think it's about a break up, but maybe just a fight. the writer is just rambling off stuff that he's just saying out of frustration.

    General Commenti think this songs is about a guy who is in love with a girl,and the guy that the girls in love with cant be together.-so the guy is trying to confense to the girl that ill never work.

    General CommentMaybe Bob Nanna is just trying to confuse the hell out of us all with lyrics that beautifully make no sense whatsoever. That's my two cents' worth, at least.

    Fave Hey Mercedes song by the way, with the possible exception of Bells.

    General Commentemo kids piss the hell out of me... every song MUST be about a girl and how things went wrong. The whole idea of the bow, arrow, and apple is all about trust, from that old aesop fable. Don't you ever have those days where you just don't feel like anything is going right... and you think that cheering someone else up might help you out?

    General Commentlook the bow and apple thing was a good idea. c'mon it fits with the song. the song is about a relationship gone horribly wrong, a catastrophe.. and yes trust is a major issue here. so the idea of things on fire and shit like that fits beautifully into the song. its an amazong song.
