calcutta streams from porchlife
where we opened up our party gifts
and you fell down the stairs
on purpose
and you drive to europe in the rain
your hair is done up (but no one's gonna see it)
maybe you should take me home

what could be so wonderful about this
what could be so wonderful?
the half light wakes you up the morning after
fall down with me
and roll around now

find out about the music
is the cd jammed or upside down
i'd really like to feel you with dinner
and we're sitting on a city bench
together in a tourist town
if a fasion ad were here you'd be in it

girl is cold but so is he
but he's still warm she's way to kind
when you walked in the morning after
looking good and you know it

i'm closing my eyes and i'm spinning
spin me away away
i don't know if i should stay but
what do i do when you say
it's okay (listen to me) she's insane

    General CommentHowie Day is def going to be the biggest thing soon. this song is amazing--its about a new relationship--and just everything in the begining. "Fall down with me" could either mean sex or just getting involved with. Either way...Howie Day is bangin'! x0x0

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Howie songs! He is asking what makes their relationship so special, when it is really the little things like her falling down the stairs or them simply sitting on a bench.

    General Commentthis song is very good/confusing. but i think its about a guy that likes a girl and he doesnt know why.

    General CommentI think this song is about him cheating on his current girlfriend and wondering why the other one sticks around for it. That's why the other girl he's seeing walked in the morning after looking good, to show him how good she can look and he doesn't really want her.
    -Just my thoughts.

    General CommentI love Howie Day. he puts so much meaning into his lyrics and the way he sings is awesome. his whole CD is so inspiring to me, he really knows what's up, i wish i could jus go give him a big hug. although i'm not sure of the exact meaning, so many thoughts flow when i listen to this song. i love it so much.

    General Commentthe vibe im gettin from this song is similar to ones im getting from a few of his others. its that sometimes girls get so caught up themselves and getting people to like them that they close themselves up and dont let anyone in. bleh. i hate how howie points out my flaws. i am this girl!
