"When" as written by and Vincent Gallo....
Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

When you come near to me
I go away
What is not clear for me
I go away
What is not here for me
I go away
I go away
I go away

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

When you come near to me
I go away
When things are clear to me
I go away
What is not here for me
I go away
I go away
I go away

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

Doo do doo do doo do doo
Do doo do doo

    General Commenti can´t believe no one commented on this song. it's the most beautiful song by the most beautiful voice in the world. i know the lyrics are not deep or intelligent or beautiful, but they fit the music perfectly. it always makes me close my eyes and smile, while breathing strongly. it brings me the best feelings, more than i could describe

    General Commentgreat saong by a great man
    we can never figure out what he means because hes so diffrent from anyone else ever
    that must be a very sepcial thing to be like vincent gallo
    if you like his music you should try john frusciante as thy are great freinds and john once said that vince is the only person who he can listen to and see himself

    General CommentGoes away physically, or inside? Does he want to pull away, from hate or from fear of intimacy? Does he 'go away', escape his problems? 'Things are clear to me', 'not here for me' - something he needs is not in 'you' (/her/him/us).

    General Commentdrawing on from what ellie said i think he takes a step back mentally, the "doo doo" part feels to me like that lalalala im not listening sort of ignorance people do in their heads.

    but i dont think this is ignorance, i think its just lack of interest, understanding or care maybe? like being happy within yourself... or this could be the POV of an aloof character - ironicly simplistic when people may think theres a thousand thoughts running through that aloof personality.

    well thats my two cents haha
