"Apple Of My Eye" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
When you're on your own
You walk in the rain
You walk around the house
Then walk around it again

You pretend you're happy
That you've got it all
But don't be upset
If you fall on your knees
And beg like a dog

I've reached a low,
Don't you know
You're the apple of my eye
I'm running low, with this show
No matter how I try
I'm sick of this angst,
Don't need thanks
You're the apple of my eye

I drink a lot of wine
When I am alone
I lose my track of time
My ideas turn to stone
I pretend I'm sad
That I'm still so small
But I'm not upset If
I fall on my knees
And beg like a dog

I've reached a low,
Don't you know
You're the apple of my eye
I'm running low, with this show
No matter how I try
I'm sick of this angst,
Don't need thanks
You're the apple of my eye

I've reached a low,
Don't you know
You're the apple of my eye
I'm running low, with this show
No matter how I try
I'm sick of this angst,
Don't need thanks
You're the apple of my eye

    General CommentGreat song from Ed Harcourt - seems to be about reaching the point where you realize the life you're living means nothing to you. You are so far from the person you want to be that your life is more a "show" than a reflection of who you are. What makes you realize this? A person who is seemingly your polar opposite - the apple of your eye, the person who makes you want to give up your foolish charades.

    General CommentThis is the best song ever, I love it so much! It's ridiculously catchy and it pretty much describes exactly how I've felt at times. Possibly my favorite song of all time?
