"What Else Is New" as written by and J. Mascias....
I'd like to see you
In the morning
In the evening
But you need a warning
I'd like to see you
It's a last ditch
C'mon you gotta
Ain't sayin' there's not a catch
Well, come on out now
It's the only way
Can't fake I know how
Is that all you're gonna let me say?

I'd like to see you
Don't you miss it?
I lied again today
And now I wish that
You'd believe me when I need to
You should be weary, I would if I were you
Can I come along?
I can't take the strain
Now what else is wrong?
Should I take the blame?

I'd like to see you
In the morning
In the evening
But you need a warning
I'd like to see you
Don't you miss it?
Light again today
Now I wish that

You'd believe me
When I need to
You should be weary, i would if I were you
Can't I come along?
I can't take the strain
Now what else is wrong?
Sure, I'll take the blame
Come on out now
It's the only way
Can't fake I know how.
Is that all you're gonna let me say?

You got things to do
So, what else is new?
Won't you give me some?
Bring it back for me
Won't you come and see?
You're the only one
So, what else is new? [Repeat: x2]
You got things to do
So, what else is new?
Won't you give me some?
Bring it back for me
Won't you come and see?
You're the only one x3

    General CommentIt's about wanting to see someone who feels confused about the relationship and doesn't want to stay together anymore.

    The person the song is addressed to doesn't want to see who's singing and probably is thinking about many reason for that, at the point he or she should be weary.

    "Now what else is wrong? Sure, I'll take the blame" are my favorite strophes, it's genius, that's pop poetry.

    And yes the album this song is off is great.

    General CommentTo me this song is just about wanting to spend time with someone (doesn't have to be a partner) who is growing increasingly more reluctant to spend time with you. And even when they do spend time with you they don't really seem there. I've been there
