you say, "what would i do without you?"
i say, "i don't know."
you say, "if you left, you know i'd be right behind you."
i say, "ditto."

ever since i've known, i wanted to tell you.
i've decided what the next best thing is.
bonnie and clyde, whatever we want.
we'll do everything, everything.

what am i to do? i go on, pretend to be friends just to be close to you.
what do you mean when you say "that way, you get me that way."
you get me that way, too..

spending hours on the telephone like partners in crime, you and i
both know what the other's thinking so we don't have to lie.
both been broken-hearted, both been by each other's side.
i held your head and wiped your tears away as you cried.
and when you say that we should stay this way forever,
and just when i think you finally understand,
you start to talking about how perfect we are together.
i wanna hear you say as "boy" when you say "best friend."

what am i to do? i go on, pretend to be friends just to be close to you.
what did you mean when you said, "that way, you get me that way."
you get me that way, too..

    General CommentThis song describes itself. It's about a guy who likes one of his friends. She says things all the time that he takes as hints, but in the end it's not what he thinks it is. She just thinks of him as a friend, and he has no idea how he is going to handle the situation. He is so confused. It sounds to me that the girl likes him, she just won't admit it.

    Maybe it's because one of my friendship's is just like this.

    General CommentI think that's right on as far as what the song's about. One correction in the lyrics though:

    you say, "if you left, you know i'd be right behind you."
    i said, "get up??"

    I think the "get up" is actually "ditto".

    General CommentNo interpretation to share, just that this is my favorite Big Japan song. It's amazing, they are amazing:)

    Oh yeah, and The "Get up??" is supposed to be "ditto"

    And I submitted corrections to the songs "Complex" and "Practical" cuz they were completely wrong and only half the song was there.
