Nothing Better

  • This song is in the form of a duet between a male and female because it has to do with the girl feeling that the guy is long gone and will stay that way, but the guy just can't accept this fact. The girl feels that the guy is "Getting carried away feeling sorry" for himself and he just can't accept it and really plays the role of the obsessed ex-boyfriend. >>

  • Mark from Firecracker, NdKaryn from Canada. I agree with you BUT.... time will tell if they do get back together.
  • Holden from Salt Lake City, UtThe District Sleeps Alone Tonight is about Gibbard's girlfriend moving to DC.
  • Jojo from San Jose, CaAnyone else notice how he says in the first verse "like a goalie tending the net in the third quarter". What sport is he talking about?

    It seems like he's making a hockey reference, but hockey games have 3 period, not quarters. Soccer has halves, not quarters.

    It could be lacrosse, or just a mistake...I mean how many songs have lacrosse references?
  • Vince from Salisbury, Md"The District sleeps alone tonight" is a reference to Washington, D.C. (District of Columbia) where one of the band members lives. The other lives in Seattle, and they mail tracks back and forth, hence the band's name...

    i feel bad for the guy , i really think he loves her and wants her back . and i think the girl should reconsider her decision and go back out with him . my best friend thinks the other way, she thinks that the girl must have a good reason to leave him and that she should leave . we always argue haha
