"Anyone Else but You" as written by and Kimya Dawson Adam Green....
You're a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on your back is the latest trend
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of the train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

Here is the church and here is the steeple
We sure are cute for two ugly people
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
So why can't you forgive me?
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

I will find my niche in your car
With my MP3, DVD, rumple-packed guitar
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B A start
Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

You are always trying to keep it real
I'm in love with how you feel
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

We both have shiny happy fits of rage
You want more fans, I want more stage
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

Don Quixote was a steel driving man
My name is Adam, I'm your biggest fan
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

Squinched up your face and did a dance
You shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants
I don't see what anyone can see
In anyone else but you

But you

    General CommentThis is like the love song for everyone whos ever felt a little outside of the box.

    It says "we can be silly, corny and weird...together."

    General CommentFunny, I just found this song. My first though was, Shit I gotta get my wife and I guitars and start playing and singing duets. Then after I listened to the lyrics I just felt awesomely old (in the best way possible). I’m just about 30, happily married with a wife that is 7 months pregnant. We are both sixth grade teachers and we own a nice little house in Northern CA. But, on some level we both feel like we are just barley responsible enough to wake up a get out the door. Then there is a song that’s lyrics include the Contra code for 99 lives for two players I mastered in middle school. As well as a reference to Don Quixote and John Henry, and the word “Turd.” Life is great, and this song somehow seems to be an affirmation that my wife and I are, in fact, responsible enough for anything as long as we are together.

    General CommentIt's like Adam and Kimya are singing this from the point of view of a few kids in Junior High. The innocence of the song is what makes it so sincere.

    Love it.

    My girlfriend put this on a CD for me. I cannot stop listening to it. It's goofy-sweet, starry-eyed...that kind of smitten that rarely comes around.
