"Don't I Hold You?" as written by and Brenden Harney Scott Levesque....
don't i hold you like you want to be held
and don't i treat you like you want
and don't i love you like you want to be loved
and you're running away
and what's your name
like i'm in the way
don't i hold you like you want to be held
don't i please you like you want
and don't i love you like you want to be loved
and you're running away
and what's your name
like i'm in the way
and wasting too much time
don't i
don't i hold you like you want

    General CommentI saw these guys open for Guster last night and they put on quite a show. Thier music is so nostalgic. Great for memories. From my interpretaion, this song is what I'm going though. I'm not getting personal about it. For anyone who hasn't heard them, check them out. I'm ready for some more song than this 5 song EP. If you lilke Sigur Ros you'll like these guys. Some of their stuff sounds similar to Coldplay's first album, but everyone i talk to has never listened to that one. Of course they all know CLocks.

    General CommentDoes anyone have the lyrics to wheat's b-side that has flat black, i met a girl, and the alternate version of don't i hold you, with a longer bridge with that contains words not in the regular version here?

    General CommentSeems to me as if the guy in the song thinks he knows the person so well and tries to do everything right, but she is rejecting him.

    General Commentthis song is amazing. Soundboy, were you at the Norfolk, VA Guster show? As i was. Although, im not sure how you compare Wheat to Sigur Ros, but ok. they do have old stuff! The album is called Hopes and Adams and its on SugarFree Records. It contains the version of Dont I hold You above. The version which i like more.

    check out the Dont I Hold You video. its badass.
