Shirts And Gloves

Album: The Swiss Army Romance (2000)
  • When I'm back from the road then you're out on it
    And I'm tired of the distance and I believe it's overrated

    And this phone tag game is endless
    The novelty is wearing
    I'm hoping time will pass without any assistance or convincing

    Road rules apply
    There's so much action
    You're getting busy

    I'll call your cellular phone to tell you TV night was lonely without you
    And so am I, so am I

    It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year
    So many high points on this last leg
    I can't wait to recount them
    It seems like nothing's happened until I've shared them with you

    The note that you had called says you're half a day away
    And you're heading home just in time for me, for me to leave

    Road rules apply
    There's so much action
    I'm getting busy

    So make sure that I'm up to date on TV night
    I hate to miss out
    I think I miss you most on Wednesdays and Saturdays

    It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER ANDREW CARRABBA

  • Madison from Austin, Txthat's so cool. I love Dawson's Creek, but always feel like a poseur when I say so. this makes me feel better.
  • Ariel from Woodbridge, CtAmy Fleischer was not Chris's Girlfriend, she was a good friend of his, they, used to get together and watch Dawsons Creek, but she had started a record company (which was the first label to release The Swiss Army Romance) and had to travel alot to keep it running, and he was touring, so their schedules would often line up perfectly that when one was at home, the other would be on the road
  • Annabeth from Kutztown, Pathis is such a sad song. It's about a couple that has completely different schedules, and they keep on missing eachother. The relationship is degrading and breaking up, and he knows it, but he keeps on hoping they'll be able to get together. Long distance relationships suck, by the way.
  • Meg from Worcester, MaThis is an amazing song. For a more vague look on things, it's basically just about long distance relationships.
