The Ergs! – Books About Miles Davis lyrics

I'm thinking of a girl
She came around here a couple years before
I'm much older now

And it would be wonderful
If I could re-write history
All of these could've beens
I guess they're left to mystery
And you could say I'm falling in love
And you probably will

I'm thinking a lot more
I'm freaking out and you've heard it all before
I apologize

And I'm having these restless nights
And I swear it's growing tired
You say "it's all good" and "I'm preaching to the choir"
And you could say I'm "a little insane"
And you probably will

This is all I've got
I'll quit my job and I'll sell this vacant lot that is my life
And I'll settle down in a place I've only read about in books about Miles Davis
I'll bust right through that door and say
I'm here to save us and then

You could say I should probably go
And you probably will

    Your love for this girl is clearly unrequited. You would throw it all down to be with her but she is just not interested. No matter how hard you try, no matter what you do she takes it as you being overly obsessed and as though she has seen everything you are about. This song means to me how no matter what you do sometimes you already know what they will say when you decide to call them on the phone or go and see them; and there is nothing you can do because you have already hopelessly fallen for them.
    R.I.P. The Ergs!
