"Late At Night" as written by Tom Maginnis, Bill Janovitz and Chris Colbourn....
I close my door at night
But they get in all right
And she turns on the light

I held her hands so tight
'Cause words don't come out right
And she sees things at night

Me, I'm closer to the door
I don't get scared no more
But I don't know the score

If I could hold them in my hand
I'd make them understand
I'm not a haunted mind
I'm not a thoughtless kind

If I could put them in a jar
I know they wouldn't scar
I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would

I close my door at night
But she gets in all right
So I turn on the light

I held her hand too tight
Too hard to make it right
So I could sleep at night

If I could hold them in my hand
I'd make them understand
I'm not a haunted mind
I'm not a thoughtless kind

If I could put them in a jar
I know they wouldn't scar
I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would

I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I'd do it if I could
I hope you know I would

    My InterpretationI think this song is talking about a girl having terrible nightmares. And how he would do anything to make them stop, but he cant even find the right words to say to make it better so he just holds her hand all night to show her that he is there for her.

    General CommentThis song is from the most romantic scene in television history. In My-So called Life, when Jordan takes Angela's hand. I love this song. It is pretty.

    General Commenti gotta admit the only reason i ever heard of this band was because of my so-called life...and by the way they were also the guest stars, they were the band that played at the party. but then i learned that they opened for counting crows in one of their concerts, and then hey i was hooked on the lads.

    General CommentMy So-Called Life is the best teen show ever.
    Everytime I hear this song I picture Jordan grabbing Angela's hand to hold. I love this song and My So-Called Life.
