"Dizzy" as written by Brian Yale, Robert Kelly Thomas, John Goff and John Joseph Stanley....
And outside, the sky is falling
People dodging raindrops, staying dry
And inside, I never gave a damn about those outside people anyway
And it hurt me, they don't even know who I am

And inside, there's no rainbows
And inside, I try I try I try, I try to clear my head
And outside, the rain is drying, and inside, I'm dying

'Cause in here, I'm staring at the rings my coffee cup has made on the table
And in here, I know I know I know, that this is as good as it gets
And in time I hope to be the one that talks about the other half
Until then, I count the cracks on the wall, until it's time to lay my head

And inside, I play with shadows
And inside, I know I know I know, that I'll feel this way all day, all day
And outside, there's hope for trying, and inside, I'm dying

You walk before me, lord knows I can't follow
You walk behind me and I don't think I can lead
You walk around me, please don't walk around me
'Cause you know how dizzy I get

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It's one of the many Tabitha's Secret songs that makes me cry on occasion, and a rainy day always makes me think of it. This song speaks volumes about loneliness and depression, the feeling that you just can't participate or you'll fuck up, the feeling that you don't give a damn about those outside people, and they don't give a damn about you.
    Too, am I crazy or could the rain be a metaphor? Everyone else is dodging the the rain and staying dry, although he doesn't mention getting in it himself...
    A lovely song, perfect for a bad day. One of the few that actually sounded good after being redone on the second album.
