"Kate" as written by Ben Folds, Darren Jessee and Anna Goodman....
She plays wipe out on the drums
The squirrels and the birds come
Gather around to sing the guitar

Oh I, have you got nothing to say
When all words fail she speaks
Her mix tape's a masterpiece
Walks through the garden
So the roses can see

Oh I, have you got nothing to say
And you can see the daisies
In her footsteps
Dandelions, butterflies
I want to be Kate
Everyday she wars the same thing
I think she smokes pot
She's everything I want, She's everything I'm not

Oh, I
Have you got nothing to say
She never gets wet
She smiles and it's a rainbow
And she speaks and she breathes
I want to be Kate
Down by the Rosemary and Cameron
She hands out the Bhagaved Gita
I see her around every couple days
I want to meet her so that
I can say, hey Kate

    General Commenti dont always get deeper meanings in bf's songs, but this one im pretty confident about.

    kate is just a girl who, althoguh she isnt perfect, is comfortable with herself, always happy and her aura generally makes everyone else happy.

    the narrator loves being around her, but also would love to be her.
