These nights, they, they go by slower and slower
I'm searching for the sun beneath the sheets
And I think I'm getting colder and older
While jealousy just gets the best of me

Take all this infatuation and envy
I never thought I'd be this way with you
Make your wish, blow out the candles
And I hope that every one of them comes true

And she said: "Don't live with frustration,
I've learned from years of patience
Your day will come."

Don't praise me because I made it through
Without any help from you
Without anyone at all
Don't hate me because I didn't make the call
And I'll never take the fall.

And she said: "Don't live with frustration,
I've learned from years of patience
Your day will come."

    i agree. 'don't live with frustration, i've learned from years of patience you day will come' is the best line in a song ever because it relates to everyone. kickass song.

    If you look at it... This song is a bunch of quotes/cliches (for example, "I didn't make the call and I'll never take the fall) slapped together and put into a song that makes sense... Such an great song!

    This is the song that really got me into Fenix Tx. I love the beginning, in the summer, I lay in bed and wonder why the nights are so slow.

    i was listening to this song tonight while driving my car at 100mph+ thinking to myself about how i wonder if i died would anyone care? plus it's a great driving song at 2am.the line "I think I'm getting colder and older/While jealousy just gets the best of me " makes me think of how i act when i get out a relationship for a long time. anyone else feel this way?

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,
