"Rebecca" as written by and Pat Mc Gee....
Who's got all the answers to questions that Rebecca has?
She's been cluelessly wondering just how long she's been had
She knows more than you or me, and she never thinks she's wrong
It seems the tables are turning; she found herself hurting for, oh, so long

Does anybody out there want to help Rebecca find a clue to life?
I guess she feels she was the victim, and we are the knife
There is a price to pay when you put on that face and roll the dice
One day soon you'll realize the world ain't that nice

[Chorus]
Are you alright, and are you okay?
Didn't anybody ever give a care around your way?
Will you be alright after we go?
Won't you tell me someday?
Oh, I'll never know

Everybody knows you can't read the writing on the wall
So don't come in
Even you and I know you can't
And you won't want to start this thing all over again

Why don't you just drive on down that line?
'Cause we don't have to let you in
Well, you seem to think you know it all
Let me tell you something: you can't win

[Chorus]

Hey, Rebecca, this is your pilot speaking
And you're about to land
I hope you got all your answers
And you've come to understand

That people and things are always going to change
And you can't stop them now
Will you look back and let me know if...

[Chorus]

Oh, I'll never know
Oh, I'll never know
Oh, I'll never know

Hey, Rebecca, this is your pilot speaking
And you're about to land
Come to understand
You can't stop

    General CommentI love this song, easily one of Pat's best. Could never really figure out the meaning to this song but now carefully reading thr lyrics its kinda making more sense. To me i guess its a vulnerability of someone. Coming to realize that you can never really know everything, life always has lessons to be learned. "hey rebecca this is your pilot speaking and your about to land" to me means that hey its about time you get off your high horse that you've put yourself on and join the rest of us. you can never know everything and thats just life.

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs and PMB is great especially since i live in richmond and thats where they started out from so theyre always here playing shows.i first read the lyrics to this song when i got the cd revel and its meaning is just all there in the words. to me hes just saying to this girl hey buddy um this life here and the world doesnt revolve around you,but at the same time hes like well shes noticing that no one likes her so why dont you just come around

    General CommentAfter much consideration, I think of this song as a strong statement to a girl that was once romantic with him, but before they ever were together, they were friends. He is saying to her, I am ok now, I am fine, but will you be ok? He is worried if she is ok, but he is realizing at the same time it doesn't matter. Kind of a last call for the reinstatement of their friendship...or something. It also holds general themes of life regarding not being able to know everything. One of my favorite songs, very well written.
