she said, "Who answered the phone?
I don't understand I thought you'd be alone
I said, "The girl who lives here,
Said the band could stay if we bought the beer."
She said, "I don't like the sound of that,
Tell me what she looks like - thin or fat?:
I said, "I can't really say,
What does it matter anyway?"

I said, "it's good to hear you voice,
I really do miss you but we made the right
She said, "I hope you're eating well and
Living here without you is living through
I said, "I may be home early
Be a few days till I know for surely."
"Shirley!, is that her name?
Is she in love and do you feel the same?"
No, I don't feel the same


I cannot find a way to make peace with
You today.
So where will we be tomorrow?

So I busted my ass to make it home and
When I got there - she wasn't alone
She said, "You're home so soon,
I didn't get a chance to clean the room."
I said, "...forget this house...
Road cheese calls both man and mouse."
She said, "don't end it this way,
I really did miss you everyday
...well...almost every way."

    General CommentWhat's to comment about the song? A sort of long distance relationship between a couple...not sure whether it be male or female, not unless Newquist plans on letting us know himself., remember

    General CommentGreat song. Very good song. It is pretty straight forward, the mans away, sounds like he's away with the band.

    Sounds like both of them we're staying with other people why he was gone.

    General CommentThe band had said this was about the relationships of Mark the guitar player, Jason the drummer, and singer Jimmy. Later they joked about changing it to the quartet of pain after bass player Scott also lost his girlfriend after being on the road.
