tell me why they hurt you like that
i can’t see how you go on

tonight and today
my eyes closed in the club
tonight and today
the smallest kiss in the world
tonight and today
i won’t forget it or why

which boys which girls answered your ad
well man it was none of them
when i give in will it be ok
make me see it’s my last year

    General Commentwow reading the lyrics to this song...and listening to it at the same time, is truly an unreal experience. this song is amazing, this album is amazing, everything jamie has ever put out has been amazing, how could it not be?

    General CommentI've always personally read the "make me see it's my last year" as JS accepting he can't live on memories alone and looking for validation in deciding to end it all, sort of playing off the "when I give in, will it be okay?" line that precedes it.

    General Commenti think it's about wanting, but not being wanted. and about only living off of memories or fantasies of somebody wanting you, or a time when somone wanted you. and realizing it's your "last year."

    General CommentIf you listen very closely to this song, you can hear birds chirping in the background.

    General Commenti am in full agreement with horse tamer. its about nostalgia and what happened "last year". its about wishing you could have back what you had once before. there is a live version where jamie sings in replacement: "which boys/which girls/answered your ad/well mom, it was none of them". amazing.
