"2AM Lovesick" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
A walk like a burned out porn star
With aching feet for a car
My buddy had a baby with a girl named star
Makes me appreciate how the little things are

But crossing a road isn't easily told
To a young has-been centerfold
Labelled a winner's episode

Yeah, I'm really clean if you know what I mean
Except for this recurring dream
Of losing total feeling
While the windmill's squealing
The windmill's squealing

I paint to kill the dead saints
I paint to make it clear
My colors run in blue and gray
But they give hope to someone dear

Yeah, yeah, yeah, 2AM lovesick
With a walking pneumonia drumkick
And this candle does't have a wick
But I'm really not that scared
No, I'm not that scared

A walk like a burned out porn star
With aching feet for a car
My buddy had a baby with a girl named star
Makes me appreciate how the little things are

    General Commenti can't believe no one has commented this.

    BLUE OCTOBER IS THE BEST.
    this song is kind of difficult to interpret. it's going in so many different directions.

    My colors run in blue and gray
    But they give hope to someone dear

    my theory for that is that people expect things in black and white, but it can't always be that way, and sometimes it's better to see things in shades of gray.

    General Commentits very relatable to any situation but i think its basically about someone who feels empty inside.

    General Commentalright peeps. I'm a huge Blue October fan, as well as a huge lyrical kinda gal, and this song holds great meaning to me in my heart.

    The first lines are refering to his walk...obviously...like a burnt out porn star...kinda dragging yourself along.
    "But crossing the road isn't easily told
    To a young has-been centerfold" again refers to the initial reference to porn star. It's not easy to go to the other side, when you've been in the pit of something for so long. "labels the winner's episode" means when this person is seen to be able to have a chance at something, even though they may not think so.
    "Yeah, I'm really clean, if you know what I mean
    Except for this reoccuring dream
    Of losing total feeling
    While the windmill's squealing" Clean, refering to drugs of course, but has a reoccuring thought about losing emotions and becoming numb. And the windmill I think can refer to the world keeping spinning while this is happening-or the sequeling symbolizing something wrong with the windmill (him.)
    Now my fav part : "I paint to kill the dead saints
    I paint to make it clear
    My colors run in blue and grey
    But they give hope to someone dear." Justin often refers to his music as being a beautiful painting; an art that helps ease his pain. "Painting" to "kill the dead saints" refers to writing about the things that have added to his seed of depression....the colours of blue and grey refer to this dark, sad world he was once it, but the fact that he is writing to help cleanse his soul, gives hope to those who care for his recovery.
    A "walking pneumonia drum kick" can be reference to his "sickness," helped by music. Candle not having a wick, this never ends. I'm not that scared...adds a positive outlook towards the end.

    A song that truly makes me happy when I'm down. Brilliant writer and man Justin is :)

    Song Meaning*DISCLAIMER* I have just obtained a copy of Justin Furstenfeld's book Crazy Making. It's not very detailed, but it contains all the lyrics to all current (The Answers - Approaching Normal) Blue October songs, and his inspiration behind them. As I said, it's not very detailed, but it's his words on every Blue October song that is in the book. I know everyone interprets a song differently from everyone else, but having the original intent behind the song will be helpful to people who don't fully understand a song. Also, any grammatical errors are not made by me, I'm putting down Justin's words exactly how he writes them. So yea... enjoy :)
