Songfacts®:

  • In this song, lead singer Shawn Harris describes a day sitting around the house doing nothing productive. He wrote it while waiting for his friend to come to his house. He and his friend were co-illustrating a book together and the friend was always late coming over. Harris wrote this song with no intention of it ever being on the album, but after the rest of the band members heard it they fell in love with it. >>

  • The lyrics, "Come out Virginia, don't make me wait, you Catholic girls start much too late" are lifted from Billy Joel's "Only The Good Die Young."
