"Red" as written by Damon E. Martin, Jeremy Ireland and Jonathan Sheldon....
i saw you looking for a light,
face painted ciggarette white.
you asked the cleanest boy you found,
you couldnt see me turned around.
his fingers stretched across your empty gaze,
that i just can't escape.

as the red fades from your wrinkled dress,
a picture of the people you've impressed.
hangs on a wall around here,
visions starts to crawl when I'm near
and the evening waits,
while you get caught up to your own mistakes.
made up of different lines,
I wouldn't want to keep in my mind.

i wondered why you'd come around,
remembering your little girl frown.
your answers kept the crowd at bay,
with complements unwilling to pay.
i had some things id like to say to you,
but they just can't be true.

    General Commentwhy aren't people commenting on this song? in my opinion it's one of TC's best. the first time i heard it i thought it was about a hooker and i still think that, but no one else seems to agree with me.

    General CommentThis song is indeed about a prostitute and how ugly it is to be one.

    General CommentAnd to go more in depth... it's actually about Bill's old encounter with an old friend who had become a prostitue. He would visit the same location every day to see if she was still there and of course she was. He hid himself though, until one day (read verse). The hooker was never there anymore after Bill had talked with her.

    I read this in a magazine.

    Also, anyone know where I can get the music video for this? I want to see it again... all I can remember is that they were in a forest or something playing the song.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a guy at a party...and seeing a really radiant girl across the room that was the biggest thing at the party, and then wanting to go up and talk to her. the chorus could be about all the people she's dressed up to impress over the time, but i dont know much.

    saw them live and this was the best song they did.

    General Commenti agree with bob dylan, i always thought the song was about a girl in bar, i guess that means more to me than a soing about a prostitute but is all good, i love this song and the sadness and melancholy of his voice
