Sitting at home with my head in my hands
Wondering what the day's gonna bring
Sitting alone with my feet in the sand
Been waiting for a change in direction
Dreaming of days when the night never came
Wishing for a night with no day
Dreaming of a life where the bulb never blows
Wishing to be left in the darkness

Today I know where I'm going
Tomorrow I'll be somewhere else
This morning I'll be a somebody
This evening I'm finding myself
Well are you confused, I guess you would be, so, so am I

Thinking of people calling my name but living life in solitude
Thinking of receiving an OBE, but it was over before I knew
Thinking of kissing a girl in the park but I'd rather be walking my dog
Thinking of teaching myself to play chess but i'd rather play drafts instead

[REPEAT CHORUS]

    General CommentBrilliant song
    I think it means:
    It's all ok in some ways, otherwise it's gone wrong. I don't know whats happening next. I'm very confused, I bet you are too.

    Simple

    General Commentstraightforward enough, isn't it. i think everyone could write the same song, just with different examples. i would think (and i should probably give the poor guy a break and stop just assuming every song he writes is related to take that) that in his case the main confusion is that he doesn't know what he wants >> "thinking of people calling my name but living life in solitude" << as he's always thinking about his old life and it's always on his mind, yet he doesn't really want to 'go out there' or do anything anyway >> "thinking of kissing a girl in the park but I'd rather be walking my dog". and then i suppose, just indecisiveness in general when you don't know where you're going... >> "thinking of teaching myself to play chess but i'd rather play drafts instead".

    i especially like lines like "this evening I'm finding myself". everyone always gets those bursts of enlightenment and thinks 'ah yes i've got it now!' but by the next day you're always just back to your old confused self :P

    General CommentYes, every song Mark writes is not about TT, it's just an easy place to start.
