Guess what, I'm done writing you songs
You give up your job at the bank
Proving money's not fun when you're gone
So this is the first verse
It's not very long
But I'm ready to move on

Guess what, I'm done
Writing your book
The ending got twisted around
But for all of the hell that it took
The electrical wires
They hum in the walls
In the room that I rent now without you

I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
The spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July
Yeah yeah yeah

So guess what, I'm done
Drawing you pictures
I'm dulling the day with a drink
In a parking garage by the theatre
We met for a movie
Every scene was a sign
We made out through their meaning

Well I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
The spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July
Yeah yeah yeah

Guess what, I'm done
Writing you songs
I'm far too unstable to settle
I doubt that the doctors are wrong
So I'll wait by a palm tree, a palm tree, a palm tree

Well, I've got friends who (la la lie)
To help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
A spaceman that can't get high
I'm coming back to my girl by July

Well I've got friends who (la la lie)
Will help me pull through (la la lie la la la lie)
This song for a long goodbye
I'm coming back
I'm coming back to my girl (la la lie)
Back to my girl (la la lie la la la lie)

This song for a long goodbye
I'm coming back to my girl by July

    General Commentwell... if you read between the lines of the chorus:

    I've got friends who
    La La Lie
    Will help me pull through
    La La Lie
    La La La Lie
    The spaceman that can't get high
    I'm coming back to my girl by July
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Now, take out the La La Lie's and Yeah yeah yeah's... and it reads:

    I've got friends who
    Will help me pull through
    The spaceman that can't get high
    I'm coming back to my girl by July

    So, the Lie part, in my opinion has nothing to do with his friends, but, he is tying to cope with his girlfriend, so he's saying that his friends will help him through his difficult time.

    He is the spaceman that can't get high (into the air or space, wherever... just UP) because his girl is gone, and he's so emotionally weighed down, he just can't seem to feel good and 'raise' himself to get better.

    I think he's just seperated from his girlfirend for temporary, not thatthey borke up or anything, and the La La Lie is just a great 'jingle' and catchy part to add into there.

    He's trying to stop obsessing over her by telling the listener that he's done with doing things associating with her:

    "Guess what I'm done
    Writing your songs... book... {and} drawing your picture..."

    Then after he says he's done with her, he then reminises something he does with his 'girl'

    Well, I might be way off, but I know the La La Lie most likely has NOTHING to do with somebody lieing...

    Enjoy, and I pray that I make sense to you.
