"Shirts And Gloves" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
When I'm back from the road then you're out on it
And I'm tired of the distance and I believe it's overrated

And this phone tag game is endless
The novelty is wearing
I'm hoping time will pass without any assistance or convincing

Road rules apply
There's so much action
You're getting busy

I'll call your cellular phone to tell you TV night was lonely without you
And so am I, so am I

It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year
So many high points on this last leg
I can't wait to recount them
It seems like nothing's happened until I've shared them with you

The note that you had called says you're half a day away
And you're heading home just in time for me, for me to leave

Road rules apply
There's so much action
I'm getting busy

So make sure that I'm up to date on TV night
I hate to miss out
I think I miss you most on Wednesdays and Saturdays

It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year

    General CommentI actually went to Dashboard's concert in November. Chris said that this song is about a really hard long distance relationship that eventually ended. But they shared something special...she used to make him watch Dawson's Creek every Wednesday. That is why he says "I think I miss you most on Wednesdays..." After they broke up, she would still make sure he was "up to date on TV night"

    General CommentI connect with this song so closely that it's almost kind of scary. Just my whole situation that I've been in for the past two years is exactly this song. I mean, even the "I miss you most on Wednesday and Saturday" line matches exactly. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous song. I love it.

    General Commenti rather feel this song than looking at it laterally, it really makes me think of her when i hear this song. It's the feeling when you are in a relationship with a girl but really far away from each other, and what makes me really love this song is dat the feeling the writer is trying to express to the girl, how he misses her, the lonelyness etc, and dats the mood this song puts me into everytime i hear it

    General CommentWords cant even explain how much i LOVE THIS SONG. It makes me cry whenever i hear it because you can really feel the emotion in his voice. I would do anything to be the girl who this song is about.

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple who are always away from each other, and how hard it is to keep a long-distance relationship strong. He wants to stay with her, but can't help but feel the pain of the distance between them.
