Half past three and I'm still awake
The room filled with the strangest glow
That's when I saw the glimmer, man
Figured I'd get myself a brand new glow

I need a brand new glow... [x4]

Half past four and I'm still awake
Half-lidded eyes moving way too slow
Won't you lend me your shimmer, man?
Figured I'd get myself a brand new...

Why won't you bring me something home?
Am I hysterical?
Why won't you bring me something home?
I need a brand new glow
Why won't you bring me something home?
Am I hysterical?
Why won't you bring me something?
Why won't you...

I need a brand new glow... [x4]

Half past five and I'm still awake
My limbs stuck to the furniture
Tick-tock, pounding my head away
Figured I'd get myself a new glow...

Half past six and I'm still awake
Half headed I to the dive and roll ( ? )
Won't you lend me your shimmer, man?

Why won't you bring me something home?
Am I hysterical?
Why won't you bring me something home?
I need a brand new glow
Why won't you bring me something home?
Am I hysterical?
Why won't you bring me something?
Why won't you...

I need a brand new glow [x4]

I need a glimmer, man...

    General CommentI don't think this song is about a guy. I think it's about a girl who looses her light. Maybe light's not the best word for it..but that quality that someone has, that just brightens up the room when they walk in..I think thats what this song is about "can you lend me your shimmer, man? I need a brand new glow" I think the writer feels like they lost their sparkle and they feel the need to regain it..or something :D just my take on it...

    General CommentThanks to her-song.net, I've found out that this song is about one of Aimee Echo's friend's who had a nighttime drug problem. This supposedly came from Echo's mouth herself, but I don't know the validity of the statement.
