"Out To Get You" as written by and James Patrick Glennie Lawrence Gott....
I'm so alone tonight
My bed feels larger than when I was small
Lost in memories, lost in all the sheets and all old pillows
So alone tonight, miss you more than I will let you know
Miss the outline of your back, miss you breathing down my neck
All out to get you, once again, they're all out to get you, once again

Insecure, what ya gonna do
Feel so small, they could step on you
Called you up, answer machine, when the human touch
Is what I need, what I need is you, I need you

Looked in the mirror, I don't know who I am any more
The face is familiar, but the eyes, the eyes give it all away
They're all out to get you, once again, they're all out to get you
Here they come again

Insecure, what ya gonna do
Feel so small, they could step on you
Called you up, answer machine, when the human touch
Is what I need, what I need is you

Let me breathe, if you'd let me breathe
They're all out to get you, once again, they're all out to get you

    General CommentThis song, along witha few others was the soundtrack of my adolescence. Simply a stunning song, makes me forget to breathe.

    He had to start the song around those lyrics. Brilliant.
    Sung with the emotion to match these beautiful words.

    sounds like a touch of a panic attack....but isn't that what lost love feels like.

    once again. love is the answer

    General CommentI used to listen to this a lot when I was stoned and paranoid and the lyrics would ring very true to me.

    General Commentlove it!!!!! I love how you can think something is out to get him but what is out to get him is sheer poetry... it's memories of a failed love. memeories of what he was like before the relationship had ended. "looked in the mirror, I don't know who I am anymore. Face is familiar but the eyes the eyes give it all away. It's like the depression of an ended love affair, when you are so far gone into a downward spiral you don't even recognize yourself and you feel like you are living outside yourslef

    General CommentAwesome tune, and in my opinion one of the saddest songs about lost love. I love the guitar effect that is used especially in the beginning of the song. Reminds me of a person weeping!

    My OpinionReminds me of the loneliness after having a big fight with your significant other, and they've gone to a friend or parent's house to stay while things cool down. What makes it more bitter, is that you know you were wrong, and fought anyway. You don't recognize yourself as the person you were when you met. And there's the fear that everyone knows you were wrong, and will side with the other person. Still, you miss them and you're hoping you can work things out in the end.
