The red 19 comes at an odd time this year, in terms of where and why and how I feel about my life. Perfect red lipstick marks around my birthday make "I'm sorry" so much easier to say (take). Christmas cards and subtle hints try to fill in for what's missing. Try to fill it in with anything that looks substantial, and leaves us with the option not to think. If I get through tonight without passing out, I promise you I'll never dream again.

    General Commenti cant believe no one has commented on this song. its definitely my favorite song by them. does anyone know what "red 19" signifies? the last line is definitely the best - "If I get through tonight without passing out, I promise you I'll never dream again."

    General Commenti think he means its a red letter day i.e. his birthday which sounds like it's on the 19th of december. but i could be way wrong.

    General Comment"Red 19" is once-popular coloring agent, along the same lines as things like "Yellow 5" "Orange 18" etc. It was common in coloring foods and cosmetics years ago, until it was banned by the FDA as being a cancer-causing agent. According to a few sources, there are still cosmetic manufacturers which use Red 19 in lipsticks. Gives a whole new meaning to "kiss of death"
