Now Mandy, tell me, tell me something
About here, now where you are
Did you arrive on Halley's Comet?
Or fall off a shooting star?
Fun and games, till your days are over and
Mum and Dad and they're so proud
Would you go out with me on Friday
And why are you so scared of the big crowd?

Jimmy was always, always thinking
I'm here now where you are
Jimmy was always, always thinking
Of loving this shooting star
Jimmy was always, always thinking
I'm here now wasting time
And Jimmy was always, always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking of where you are
Always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking, of where you, are

Mandy I know you're four years older
But boy and gosh girl you're so fine
You've got me sitting here for hours
Writing this little ditty rhyme
One day I know we'll be together
And one day I'll be understood
And we willl fall in love forever
Well that's my plan, touching wood

Jimmy was always, always thinking
I'm here now where you are
Jimmy was always, always thinking
Of loving this shooting star
Jimmy was always, always thinking
I'm here now wasting time
And Jimmy was always, always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking of where you are
Always thinking
Always thinking
Always thinking, of where you, are

    This is such a great summer song, antiskeptic are so poetic and Andrew has the perfect voice for them. This song basicly describes the story of a guy with a crush on this girl, but shes older than him...but it doesnt mean anything to him because he has such a crush on her. it almost sounds like a girl next door story.

    This song is all sweet n cute! i adore it! It's kinda sad really.... coz it's really obvious that the chik doesn't like this guy, either that or doesn't know he exsists... its got a bit of a stalker vibe about it. The whole "one day i'll be understood" thing ... stalker!!

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
