"Coming Around" as written by and Francis Healy....
Never see you coming around
They know they got their heads screwed on
I'm standing in the middle of town
I know I might never come home
Just standing where I am with all the people passing by me
The sound of all these passers-by mixed in with the bus and motor-car
I must be sure these are the signs
Cause I've been here a million times before

Just tell me when it's coming around, coming around
I think I see you coming to town, hunting you down
Bringing you round

Tell me if I'm bringing you down
Cause I was fine till you came along
You tell me that the tears of a clown cloud
That I'm confusing while abusing my mind
So far away I wanna be
That's not as close to you and me
The things they call our destiny
Now why do you have to pick on me at all?
My walls are coming down

Just tell me when it's coming around, coming around
I think I see you coming to town, hunting you down
Coming around

    General CommentI love Travis and this song is no acception. This song to me depicts the slow and painful breakdown of a relationship. This guy is standing in town, torn to pieces, watching but not appreciating the going-ons (sounds of the passersby, cars, etc.) He is crying the tears of a clown and abusing his mind. He wishes, like we all do, that pain like this came with a fore-warning, but, alas, that is rarely so; he laments, 'Just tell me when it's coming around'.

    DEEP!!! :)
