I can't stop thinking while I'm on the can
Your eyes pop in my mind again and again
Oh Annie, why can't you understand
Every night I dream about being your man

But every time I come up to you
My throat turns dry, I'm tripping on my shoes
I don't know what I'm gonna do
I don't know what I'm gonna do

Cause I think I have fallen in love with you
Cause I think I have fallen in love with you
It's true

Wishing that you'd come up to me
You're always on my mind, you're driving me crazy
I'm missing your personality
You're always on my mind, you're making me lazy

But every time I come up to you
My throat turns dry, I'm tripping on my shoes
I don't know what I'm gonna do
I don't know what I'm gonna do

Cause I think I have fallen in love with you
Cause I think I have fallen in love with you
So please, oh please won't you tell me that you love me too

    Although the line about being on the can is a bit jarring, the rest of the song is perfect. Its about being so in love that you can't do anything but think of that one girl. Her eyes, her personality (that's right, not just superficial things), you can't even do anything else but just sit there and dream.

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."
