@[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.
You told me not to put you up on a pedestal, fine Then I'll just sit here and die It's all right I'll drink another to you I'll get in a fight or two It doesn't matter with who It's all right A twenty one year old dream Now you corrupt the whole scene I think it's gone far enough It's all right I think you know what I mean I think you know what to do I think I'm coming with you Looking back I never was so right A night fun would do us good tonight So here's to losing you A toast my love from me to you Drink up now don't be a fool While you're still on my pedestal So we should go out and dance We'll have a night on the town Turn up the radio loud It's all right You'll drink another to me You'll get in a fight or three It doesn't matter to me It's all right A seventeen year old dream Now we've corrupt the whole scene I think we've gone far enough It's all right I think you know what I mean I think you know what to do I think I'm coming with you

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,
