I know he’s not the kind, the kind that settles down
And I know he finds it hard keeping his feet on the ground
He goes out every night down the pub with all his mates
Getting into fight’s and staying out till late
But when he comes home rolling drunk
Don’t get the 'ump, just remember

Even though guys need someone some times [4x]

He don’t wear armani suits or shirts pressed nice and clean
He wears doc martens boots and dirty Levi jeans
Your friend’s all think he’s gross and your parents hate his guts
And he once gave you a dose but the tablets cleared it up
They all say he’s just no good, but he’s misunderstood, and remember

Even though guys need someone some times [4x]

He drives his car to fast he don’t remember what you said
His promises don’t last and he’s lousy in bed
And when you’re at a party and he’s puking in the bin
And you’re trying to remember what you ever saw in him
Don’t go into one, he’s only having fun, and remember

Even though guys need someone some times [4x]

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
