IM CRYING IT SOUNDS LIKE HES SAYING BAWK BAWK
Missed opportunitie s ehhhh.... I don't have that problem. Settling seems to sound more like it, or the curse of never being satisfied (the typical human condition). Regardless I remain content- single is the game, not hurting others the prize.
ba baaaaaaaaaah hehehhe
I HATE this song!!!
It's sooo annoying!
I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots.
Oh goodness, it's been so long since I've heard this song. ♥ My sister listened to this stuff when I was a kid.
Very upbeat! A nice break from their slower, but still great other songs! I love it!
Pop sensibility and a good dose of sarcasm. Jolly Awkwardness.
As below, this is a happy-soundi n g melody joined to awfully depressed lyrics. DCFC (and Gibbard in particular) have a knack for that type of unusual songwriting. This can make for hilarious situations where you find yourself happily singing along, only to realize what you've just said...
I love this song! :D Such an upbeat break from the rest of the somewhat downer tracks... which i also love!

I think it goes beyond that. Yes you are right, however it can also be interpreted by being about life, and growing up and wondering what things would be like if they were different.
I am really not sure how this song can be interpreted as having a happy tone, other then Ben's unmistakable vocal pitch. To me, it will always be about missed opportunitie s .
NO TITLE AND REGISTRATION IS JUSTIN BALDINGER HAHA FOR INFO
I think this is the best song by this band
Uhhhhh not an appropriate song to come on while I'm writing a potential date an email. Bad Pandora, BAD! (A good song none the less lol)

i love this song and all the other similar songs... wow werid
If you just listen to the tune it sounds quite delightful. If you pay attention to the lyrics it is a bit depressing.

Like a bitter pill wrapped in soft fluffy nougat.
Makes me very happy:)
Baa BAH!!
Who doesn't like this damn song? If you don't like this song, it has to be a crime.
I love love LOVE this song :) It makes me happy
I make this sound daily.

Freakn great song. The album hits an emotional peak with this song and mellows big time from there on out.
