"I Only Said" as written by and Kevin Shields....
See there run away you said
To go you were it, you were it
To lay underneath the red sky there
To lay under her, I want her there

See you there, under her, and under
To go you were there and I'm slow
To lay over her and I'm slow, oh
To lay under her, I've grown away, oh

    General Commentvincent, i'm not sure about that, he once said that they actually he worked hard on the lyrics and reportedly said "there's nothing worse than bad lyrics"

    at least according to wikipedia

    General CommentI would agree that this is about being tired of being with someone. That short "rusty" sounding melody (if that makes sense to anybody) seems to fit with that idea.

    Song MeaningI always thought this song was about how getting a boner at the sight of your girl.

    Hell, you know, MBV have always been about sex.

    General CommentTo be fair, the lyrics (as Shields himself has said) were just meant to blend in with the music, and he claims he didn't pay much attention to lyrics.

    General CommentI think (other than Sometimes) this is my favourite off of Loveless. Excellent song and album.

    The last few minutes of the song is awesome. Man, I remember the first time hearing it. *goes back in time*
