Get a Grip Lyrics

Lonely boys and you lonely girls
Here at the end of the lonely world
You're finding out
If there's someone to cry about

Lonely girls and you lonely boys
Playing alone with your lonely toys
Well don't be blue
'Cause there's no one to play with you

Get a grip on yourself, you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself, take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

When the lights come on and the party's through
There are always a few with nobody to do
Well now don't despair
You'll eventually get there
And meanwhile all of you lonely ones
Here's what to do while you wait for the sun
To rise above
The loneliest kind of love


Well it feels nice, yeah it feels nice
Well it feels nice, yes it feels nice

If you're looking for someone to get a grip on you
First you gotta get a grip on yourself it's true


And it feels nice, and it feels nice
Well it feels nice

hehehe, MASTURBATION, lol. This song is definately about wanking, because when i went to see them live, just before they played this song, Dan wilsons words were: "Recently i read in Q magazine that this song was about "wanking" but i have no idea what they're talking about, because our song is about masturbation, and i have no idea what wanking is, so i don't know what the fuck they're going on about!" hehe bless him! Lorna* (",) xXx

I love the xylophone or whatever it is that leads the song in the background of the rest of the song. It's so playful and childlike in tune, and then the lyrics are so... like the previous poster said, hardcore double entendre. Get a grip, indeed.

Semisonic are so great at the whole "sexy songs that sound innocent until you pay attention to the lyrics" thing. :P
