We'll be together in the springtime...
She goes away today
He gives her a photo to help her remember
History of Art B.A.
It's alright ''Cos she's back in late November
But he knows not of who she's mixing
By christmas she's lying, not calling, she tricks him
So he goes up to stay
He don't like her friends, and he an't heard of Nietzsche
She's seems so far away
And the distance is further each time he meets her
Who's the bloke on the wall next to Ringo and Paul?
It's Che she says have you seen him before?
Open your window
Won't you let her out
Wave goodbye to the butterfly
The one you can't be without
Open your window
Won't you set her free
Where you are isn't where she's at
Or the place she's meant to be
He thinks they've grown apart
Now she uses big words like surreal and genre
And I know it breaks his heart
There's thousands of fellas that like it before you
Does the bloke on the wall next to Ringo and Paul mean she's some kind of
expert on guerrila war?
Open your window
Won't you let her out
Wave goodbye to the butterfly
The one you can't be without
Open your window
Won't you set her free
Where you are isn't where she's at
Or the place she's meant to be
Open your window
Won't you let her out
Wave bye bye bye
The one you can't be without
We'll be together in the springtime
And the sun will shine

    General Commentit’s about a guy feeling isolated after his girlfriend goes off to university. and it’s hard for him to realize they’re in different places in their lives now. after leaving home she has come to have aspirations that he doesn’t appear to fit into anymore. this is definitely one of my favorites on the album at the moment.

    General CommentIt's like they were trying to write a serious song about the strain of long-distance relationships, but they couldn't help adding little quips like
    'now she uses big words like "surreal" and "genre" '.

    Song MeaningCute song. Catchy.

    Meaning: The guys girlfriend heads off to college/university and they are slowly growing apart. He's hoping when she comes back home everything will go back to normal.

    Song Meaning
    It's about being forced into a long distance relationship by university. The bloke gradually feels like he doesn't know her as she grows in character with her friends. He's worried about her being away and begins to think that she's lying to him and he doesn't like her friends because he feels that they're taking her away from him. In the back of his mind he knows he should let her go and meet new people, but he can't live without her and let her be free.

    I'll be off to uni next year and I'm in a relationship atm. =/
