Counting to 100

Album: Twenty-Three Places (2004)
  • "Counting to 100" is about waiting for the person you are meant to be with: "Never been much good on my own, so Im trying to find someone else. Spotting you ain't been easy, what's a boy to do when I got this spot right beside me." He's saying that he's been in many bad relationships and he doesn't like being alone, and he knows that he needs to find someone. "You go hide, and I'll come seek and maybe someday in the middle we just might meet, so I'm counting to 100 and I promise I won't peek if you go hide." He's saying that he'll be waiting for that special person and he'll be patient and that one day they might meet somewhere. >>
