"My Number" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Showers pounding out a new beat
I trade my old shoes for new feet
I grab a new seat
I don't like the one I got
The fabric's wearing through
And it's wearing me out
You're wearing me down

Watching old baseball games
And low budget telethons
Ain't like watching you yourself
When you yourself is on
Got time to wander to waste and to whine
But when it comes to you
It seems like I just can't find the time

So watch your head and then watch the ground
It's a silly time to learn to swim
When you start to drown
It's a silly time to learn to swim
On the way down

If I gave you my number
Would it still be the same
If I saved you from drowning
Promise me you'll never go away
Promise me you'll always stay

Closed down the last local zoo
I'm gonna win the endless war
Over who kills the last koala bear
And who in death will love him more then I
He grabs me by the hand
Drags me to the shore
And says maybe you don't love me
But you'll grow to love me even more
And I well I'm not surprised

    General CommentI love this part:

    "He grabs me by the hand
    Drags me to the shore
    And says maybe you don't love me
    but you'll grow to love me even more!"

    It's just so dynamic, and the way they sing it is priceless...Tegan and Sara should get way more recognition, especially in the US.

    General Commenti've always thought this song is about tegan telling a boyfriend, or someone who likes her, she is actually gay. and him saying, you're not, i can make you love me... so on and so forth... love this song!

    General Commentmy take on this: "if I gave you my number would it still be the same" just the wondering and doubting inner turmoil that eats us alive, its like when you a leave a conversation and you contemplate whether or not to say something and part of you is just like screaming TELL THEM TELL THEM and then later the other part is like, GOD YOURE SUCH AN IDIOT WHY DIDNT YOU TELL THEM..well thats what it means to me because l actually have had situations where it was like GOD I WISH WE HAD EXCHANGED NUMBERS I MAY NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN NOW!
