Remember that last Friday before we left for Mexico?
we kissed and nothing seemed to matter like Billie Holiday might sing
and it rained and everything was going to be just fine-
it was like music-
and it makes me sad to know I had gotten into something that I could not deal with
and I will sit in my room and sleep all day
and think up dreams like I am the cutest kid in school or I could be crazy and sing about memories-
hey I remember when I sat on those steps watching the moon
chase the sky back until the world seemed like it would explode
and I could picture going up with it
it'd be just how I'd like to go and I'd sing.

    General CommentDefinately one of their best songs.

    It's extremely under-rated, the breakdown at the end is one of the greatest pieces of music... ever.

    General Commenti think this song is how he got a chance with someone unattainable and it was too much for him

    and it makes me sad to know I had gotten into something that I could not deal with

    General CommentI couldn't believe it when I read this, that other people actually appreciated the breakdown, too. I had the breakdown stuck in my head for probably 3 days until I went through all my records to find the song.

    This, Jodie, and Holly Hox Forget Me Nots are my favorite STD songs of all time.

    General CommentI agree with you all. The breakdown is amazing! Totally underrated. I've had the whole last part on my away message thing, cuz I just love Chris's lyrics, and this is about the epitome of it...
