Maybe it's not the deepest Travis song, but when I listen to the strengh in this song and the message between the lines it can almost make me cry...

Hey
I would really like to talk with you
Girl
Do you have the time to stop?
Love
You seem to work around the clock
Say All I want to do is rock
If this was any other day
I'd turn and walk the other way
But today
I'll stay
Not walk
Just rock


It's a song that gives me hope in frustration. It tells me that life's not all about work and rutines...I can feel Fran scream: "Would it be too much to ask for you to stay and rock with me for a while?"

And when you finally leave
You leave nothing for me


Now I can see the light
Circling around your reflection

...every face I've ever seen
and every place I've ever been
has left its mark upon my worries

I wish that I
Could fly, fly, fly away
And if I should fall
And you hear me call
Would you stay...


I've just listened More than Us... : ) This is one of my favourites too!!!! It seems that everytime I hear it, I can't forget Fran's face in the music video when he sings that line...

Sunny says
Oh, where have you gone?
I get the strangest feeling
You belong
Why does it always rain on me?...
Even when the sun is shining
I cant avoid the lightning
(Why does it always rain on me)

If you find the time to get away
Opportunity may come your way
(City in the rain)

Nothing's wrong, nothing's right
There's no obvious solution to this plight
Keep it locked, out of sight
Even then it's just a matter of time, uh oh
Nothing's right, nothing's reign
I'm gonna get a tumor in the brain
Now you're here, now you're gone
Oh what's the definition of wrong
(Definition of wrong)

But mostly these:
Who cheers you up
When you are down
Who brings you cups of coffee
Who picks you up
When you're in town
Whatever makes you happy
And I'm glad you're better now
But I'm sad you're not around
Friends
Won't ever desert you
Or turn against
Friends
Won't love you and leave you
To mend the fence
(Friends)

A million lonely people with their bead in the sand
Try to make some sense of what they dont understand
(Chinese blues)

I'll never get into your heart
I'm just happy to hang around[/b] (Happy to hang around)

And many many more...
(Whoa, i wrote a lot!!!)

Cheers, thanks for everything - Selfish Jean

I fell in love with the ironic message of this song from this very first line, just love the simplicity in it. This is another Travis song that moves me between the lines, hard to explain the feeling, but I feel like there's some kind of hidden message in it. I get the same feeling with AIWTDIR, gives me lust for life :P

Listen to this and you'll understand:
