All the time that we spend together
I won't fuss, I won't fight
Tryin' to make you mine
You know I'm not that kind
Huh whoo c'mon

I said I'd love you til the twelfth of never
But I won't run far ahead leaving you behind
You know I'm not that kind

'Cause I'm not that kinda girl
And it's not my kinda world
No it's not for me
Not where I want to be

Help me out, tell me what you're thinking
If I run, slow me down, you can take your time
You know I'm not that kind
Yeah woo
If you leave, I believe life will go on
Wind will blow, water flow, and the sun will shine
You know I'm not that kind

'Cause I'm not that kinda girl
And it's not my kinda world
No it's not for me
So let me set you free


Now what I say to you, I would say to no other
I've got my friends, I won't look for another in you,
Yeah, so what you gonna do, yeah yeah yeah

'Cause if you swing with me, you soon will discover
I'll give you tenderness unlike any other can do
And what I say is true, yeah

'Cause I'm not that kinda girl
And it's not my kinda world
No it's not for me, not for me
Said not where I want to be,
Said not where I want to be yeah
It's not my kinda thing,
It's not the way,
Way I want to swing
It's not for you, it's not for me,
I said my baby I'm not that kind,
I'm not that kind yeah, yeah, Yeah

No, not that kinda girl

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
