"Anything You Want" as written by and Daniel Britt....
If there's anything you want
Come on back cause it's all still here
I'll be in the back room drinking my half of the beer
And if you and me is so right
Why's it the same thing every night

It's just a matter of time
It's almost measurable
Imagination ain't kind on us tonight

You're at your best when you got the guns turned a hundred
Eighty degrees
And finding out if it adds all up right
We go through all the same lines or sell out to appease
But go to sleep in a bed of lies
I made my own more than once or twice

And now time is my time time is my own
And I feel so alive yet feel so alone
'Cause you know you're the one and that that hasn't changed
Since you were nineteen and still in school waiting on a light
On the corner by sound exchange

    General CommentI don't get it. Why can't I love other Spoon songs as much as this one? This might be my favorite song ever.

    General Commentfirst spoon song i've ever heard.
    since then, i've fallen in love.
    this song is just so good to listen to while driving alone.
    and just chilling.

    "And now time is my time is my own
    And I feel so alive yet feel so alone"

    can you get any more perfect?

    General CommentI think it's pre-break up or in that stage where most people break up but some move on.

    He talks about going through the same thing every night, which would indicate the fighting that usually precedes a break up, the constant arguing that sometimes ends because one person lies to appease the other, going to bed in lies....

    Plus, her stuff is still there.

    And it ends hopefully as he knows she's still the one despite this rough patch.

    General CommentThis tune gets tune me in ways no other song can.

    Lived in Dobie Center my freshman year, spending a lot of time with my HS gf who I'd split up with. Yeah, I guess you get it.

    General Commentas close to a perfect song as you can get.
    according to itunes i've played this song 588 times in the last year--a bit obsessive, yes, but the song deserves it.
    CANNOT wait for the new LP!
