You're staring at your watch,
You're staring at your watch again,
You're staring at your watch,
You're staring at your watch again

You're staring at your watch,
It's one of your neurotic habits,
Like back at the party,
So sick of psycho sychophantics

You're hot,
You're cold,
You can't think about it,
You're like the books along your wall

You're jaded,
Overrated,
There's no doubt about it,
So here's a new book for you to read

You're talking to yourself,
You're talking to yourself again,
You're talking to yourself,
You're talking to yourself again

You're talking to yourself,
About a friend who was put away,
For breaking in labs,
And once again, you’ve got nothing of value to say

You're hot,
You're cold,
You can't think about it,
You're like the books along your wall

You're jaded,
Overrated,
There's no doubt about it,
So here's a new book for you to read

Somewhere Only We Know
Keane
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Me and Johnny
Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
