I Like What You Say

Songfacts®:

  • Prior to the release of Lucky, Nada Surf lead singer Matthew Caws made this statement: "I tend to be pretty hopeful about things further in the future, but full of anxiety about the next eight hours. Unlike my friend John Flansburgh from They Might Be Giants, who says he's manic depressive without the depression, I think I'm manic depressive without the mania. Yet I'm ready to be cheerful at the drop of a reason. I'm always looking for rapture in music." >>
