"Absolute Gravity" as written by and Quinn/mcclelland/lightbody....
Her gravity make me feel light-headed
Small-talk turns to dust in my mouth
She doesn't know that I'm already
Thinking bout how I'm gonna make her look my way
But she smiles at herself in mirrors
A little too often these days
Maybe I'm unbalanced
The way she walks, my God she'd get it
All my friends reckon she is oh so fine
But the way I talk when I'm speaking near her
She must think I crawled out of the sea today

    General Commentthis is about fancying the wrong person... for example in this song he is talking about liking someone who is extremely vain, someone who is perfect but who also knows that they are perfect

    General CommentHe likes a girl, but doesn't know how to talk to her. She's probably one of those vain, stuck-up girls, who are disgusted by the... odd, nerdy guys. And maybe, when he talks near her, he sounds like one of the odd guys, talking nonsense, like you see on tv alot. xD That's my guess.

    General Comment^Agree

    Also, the fact that he is so in awe of this girl doesn't help.
    In the line
    "but the way i talk when i'm speaking near her
    she must think i crawled out of the sea today "
    I think about how when you like someone you tend to make a fool of yourself trying to impress them...yeah
    Love the song

    General Comment"Her gravity makes me feel lightheaded
    small-talk turns to dust in my mouth
    she doesn't know that i'm already
    thinking bout how i'm gonna make her look my way" Whenever he is around this girl. he feels a feeling thats not very explainable. He is in awe of this girl whenever she is in sight. he gets nervous and doesnt know how to talk infront of her. he is at lost for words when is is speaking to her. He is gonna try his best to make her look at him. "but she smiles at herself in mirrors
    a little too often these days
    maybe i'm unbalanced" This girl is probally stuck up and thinks to much of herself. She thinks he is abostly nothing and doesnt pay attention to him which leaves Gary with low self easteem and a little unbalanced. "the way she walks my god she'd get it
    all my friends reckon she is oh so fine
    but the way i talk when i'm speaking near her
    she must think i crawled out of the sea today" He has an attraction for this girl. most likely one of the prettier girls at school and the way he speaks and acts infront of her may seem a little odd to her and a bit fishey.

    General CommentHe's seen a girl that is way beyon his petty little league and just has teenage kicks about her. Oh my god she's get it up her backside...thats what hes trying to say. Not a deep hidden meaning, just a message about how guys think.

    General CommentIt's sad to think, that on our petty little thing we like to call Earth, we feel like this about people. Walking down the street, you always see someone that interests you, or you're attracted to. But (or at least if you're as insecure and unconfident and overanalytical as me) you never will approach them. This song is about a kid, you can tell that in the way it's written. Just how primitave and far fetched their thinking is. But it's all about the fact that he thinks she's too good for him. Well, no. Everyone sits to go down to the toilet, so no-one's different.
