This song by the Danish band Mew asks a lot of questions:Are you thinking of something to say?
Why are you sitting there?
Are you hoping that someone will stare?
Their frontman Jonas Bjerre didn't proffer any answers in his 2017 Songfacts interview
, but he did explain how the song was written.
"That was written on an acoustic guitar," he said. "We had a tuning we used a lot on that album, that I think was EAEG#C#E, and we used it on a lot of songs. So, it had this kind of drone-y, strum-y feeling to it, and we turned it into an electrical song.
