"Marvellous" as written by and Ian Broudie....
Oh well you had to fit
But you're fit to drop
Open up the window and jump into the blue
Things could be marvelous
Things could be fabulous
You need a push
I'll push you off
Open up the window and jump into the blue
Things could be marvelous
Things could be fabulous
Too
Oh, and these are the days
And this is the life
There'll always be something on your mind
You'll never quite find
Won't you ever make your mind up
Oh well you had to hit
'Til you hit the top
Open up the window and jump into the blue
Things could be marvelous
Things could be fabulous
Too
Oh, and these are the days
And this is the life
There'll always be something on your mind
You'll never quite find
Won't you ever make your mind up
Now you'll never be sure
If this is the time
If this is the moment
The end of the line
You'll never decide
You used to know but now you've forgotten
You sit there and wait for the phone to ring
When are they going to call
Are they ever going to call you at all
And then oh!
Things could be marvelous
Things could be fabulous
Too
Oh, and these are the days
And this is the life
There'll always be something on your mind
You'll never quite find
Won't you ever make your mind up
Now you'll never be sure
If this is the time
If this is the moment
The end of the line
You'll never decide
You used to know but now you've forgotten
A submarine got stuck to the bottom
These are the days so wake up
Cause this is the time
And you know I'm right

    General CommentI feel that this song is about living for today, and not putting things off until a later date.

    "these are the days and this is the life" - THESE are the days, not yesterday, not tomorrow. Live for today - now. Don't get stuck to the bottom, wake up cos THIS is the time.

    I like songs like this that have a good respectful meaning, aren't depressing, and have a thumping good tune to go along with them. Brilliant!

    General CommentI know it isn't this, but it maybe says something about my frame of mind that I spent a long time thinking that the song was prompting a suicidal person to just go ahead and do it.
    Up beat, happy music juxtaposed with dark, sinister lyrics.
    The person always has something on their mind, 'fit to drop', generally troubled. They have thought about suicide, but don't know what is on the other side. If they just go ahead and do it, literally jump out of the window, things could be marvellous, the release would be marvellous.
    This is the time, the end of the line.

    Even now when I look at the lyrics, they are completely consistent with the meaning I originally read into them.
