"Two Days In February" as written by George Tutuska, Robbie Takac and John Rzeznik....
I hung your picture on the wall and that's all it is
I break my fingers to make a call and that's all it is
I know you're living way out west and I don't think that I confessed
Everything I feel

You say you got no faith in things that you can't see
Well I'm sorry I ain't there with you but you ain't here with me
And I'm down in all my fears
But I ain't crying no tears over you

Cause everything's wrong
Well it's all right
Everything's wrong
Well it's all right

You said that this is crazy you're a half a world away
Well I'm sitting and I'm thinking but I didn't know what to say
So I said something I can't touch, I always want way too much
Anyway

Cause everything's wrong
Well it's all right
Everything's wrong
Well it's all right

I hung your picture on the wall but that's all it is
I break my fingers to make a call and that's all it is
I know you're living way out west
Don't get me wrong I'm not impressed
With you no more

    General Commentthis is one of the only songs i have ever truly connected to.
    i understand every sentiment that they are trying to express in this. the man i am, yes, still, in love with i had to leave almost a year ago.
    the understatement of emotion is how i tried, and am still struggling, to cope with my life without him. i break my fingers to make a call, and thats all it is.
    theyre not talking about someone that they are getting over, theyre lying to themselves. the shine of a new relationship has worn off, 'im not impressed with you no more', but theyre still in love.
    i am getting on with my life. but if he came back to me, id fall for him all over again. everythings wrong, but its alright. im coping.

    General CommentThe song is about a two day relationship John had with a girl from California. John lived in Buffalo, she lived out west, it wasn't gonna work. The girl actually had a photo credit and was thanked in the liner notes of "Hold Me Up".

    General CommentThis is my fave song of all time! "something i can't touch i always want way too much" - i live by those lyrics, life is never simple and i think this song captures that. It's obviously about John not being able to have some1 he really wants due to them moving away and the love is still there but theres just nothing he can do about it and basically saying life isnt plain and simple it has many complications, thats why i love this song, its true to life!

    General CommentIt is so obvious that this song is about a guy who's girlfriend moves away and they fail at an attempt to have a long distance relationship. The guy is sad at first but learns that he doesn't need her.

    General Commenteverything's wrong, and it's all right, I've learned to live by those words. There have been a lot of times when everything, and I mean everything, was wrong, and I just keep this song in mind.

    General CommentA year ago I moved away from a country i lived in for four years and I left behind someone extremely important to me. So this song definitely related to me the first few months when i was completely depressed and homesick. One of my closest friends that i left behind was having all these problems and i felt bad for not being with him but he wasnt with me either so it was like "what can i do???" and even though at first it was hard and after a few months my feelings changed from "I know you're living way out west and I don't think that I confessed Everything I feel" to "
    I know you're living way out west Don't get me wrong I'm not impressed With you no more"... So i think it is about leaving someone behind either physically by moving away or by just drifting apart and slowly getting over it...

    General Commenti adore this song.. its marvelous

    You say you got no faith in things that you can't see
    Well I'm sorry I ain't there with you but you ain't here with me
    - hes merely saying that its not his fault.. SHES the one who moved away

    You said that this is crazy you're a half a world away
    Well I'm sitting and I'm thinking but I didn't know what to say
    So I said something I can't touch, I always want way too much
    Anyway
    love those lines too
    goo goo dolls is excellent...
    my fave songs are... big machine... ACOUSTIC #3 (possibly one of the best songs ever made)... 2 days in february... name... iris... slide...
    anyways has anyone heard the acoustic version? or live version?

    well... in the chorus wheere it goes
    Cause everything's wrong
    Well it's all right
    Everything's wrong
    Well it's all right
    after the part "everythings wrong" theres a break.. like its the same in the normal one.. and he goes "glycerine" as in the song glycerine from bush.
    then hes like, just checking to see if u all are listening
    hes a funny guy... a legend
