Be little
For now
Your time will come before
The earth rotates winter
Capricorn

He said
I feel like this licorice
And she sticks so well
Oh well

I'm not in your stars
But it's still early

You lie because you're in the bed

Be little
For now
Your time will come before
The flat earth December
Remember

She said
He's so hard to hear
So will I outgrow
Well if he says so

You can't look at the sky
Without looking right through it

I'm not in your stars

    To place the questions above with answers, Cap'N'jazz is a band originally formed in Wheeling, IL . At the same time chris was living in wheeling , so as braid became better known its basically a shout out to a great band that bred many others in its wake. So yes they were friends and everyone is happy ever after

    I am assuming that Braid used these lyrics because in the CaP'n Jazz song "Yes, I Am Talking To You", Tim Kinsella sings "I'm dying to tell you I'm dying/I don't need a reason". These lines were lifted (with due recognition) from the Friction song "Auburn" for which Bob Nanna (guitarist and vocalist for Braid) was the drummer. Make sense? I hope so. I am kind of just pulling this out of my ass, so don't quote me on it.

    There's also a Cap'n Jazz lift in "Niagara" by Braid, the line "Sugar, even odd smiles are in this season." is from "Que Serte!" on CJ's only LP. I'm assuming the two bands are buddies.

    So, I love the vocal deuling in this one, much more pronounced than in a lot of their other stuff. Chris is in almost as much as Bob. The payoff is really good too. I love the way the guitars finally pull together on the closing part.

    Bob Nanna wrote those lyrics for Cap'n Jazz. It's in the liner notes of the Cap'n Jazz CD.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
