You don't ask what I needed to do
When I come back you'll need to choose
Oh, whatever I ask you take take take take
Oh, this is all I need to say

It's in your eye, I wondered why
No need to say (how close) can we lie
Oh, we don't talk, you know all I need
Oh, this is what I need to take

You don't ask what I needed to do
When I come back you'll need to choose
Oh, all I ask you do do do do
Oo, this is all I need from you

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship short on words and high on sex.

    But who cares, it's the lush, swirling guitars we come back for :)

    General Comment-My favorite MBV song, for some reason. It's beautiful beyond belief.

    As for lyrics, I don't even bother with MBV
    Uhh...sexual themes seem to be all throughout Isn't Anything, and this takes no exception...

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song and possibly the first real shoegazing song. Not surprised at the little amount of comments.

    General CommentThis was the first song that I heard by MBV. It was very easy to like them after this.
    This has a lot of fresh air flowing through it.
    It's a refreshed landscape after a storm.
    Industrial Impressionism.
