about

this song is, as you know, more or less about me being so oblivious to the world and people around me most of the time, that people think i'm a bitch or purposely being mean to them. when really i'm just not paying attention. i'm usually thinking about something else. the phenomenon of "resting bitch face" and assigning it to people, specifically women, is pretty telling of a society though, right? really, i think it says most people are pretty ego-centric and think everyone should be thinking about them or paying attention to them at all times. its also a commentary on the idea that women should be thinking about being pleasing to everyone around them at all times--that pressure is put on them by men, but also by other women. i, personally, think and act in a way that says "i have ups and downs, and i want to live those through and be in the moment that i'm in and not stress myself to act in ways that i deem inappropriate for how i feel at the moment, and that includes sometimes being in a bad mood or quiet or withdrawn, but it also includes being kind and warm and generous too"

lyrics

You see me out on a Sunday
Confused by choices at the grocery and I am
Quite drawn back into my own mind
Counting the squares of linoleum
I’m having a nice time

But I seem to have caught someone’s eye
A girl I met once at a party or something

I look like the sun is in my eyes
You had me at goodbye

Oh I know it’s an antiseptic greeting man
You think I could do better
But I don’t think I can

You see me out on a Monday
Doing a crossword at the cafe and all of
The sudden I’m overcome with worry
About whether or not I am pregnant
Or just stressed out

But I seem to have caught someone’s eye
A guy that I went on one boring date with

I look like the sun is in my eyes
You had me at goodbye

Oh I know it’s an antiseptic greeting man
You think I could do better
But I don’t think I can

What happens now is word is spreading I am cruel
When really I am just an oblivious fool
I think I’ll probably always let you down

I look like the sun is in my eyes
You had me at goodbye
You want me to be so upbeat
But I’m running on 3 hours sleep
You think I’m being so mean and snide
But maybe it is that my dog just died
I look like the sun is in my eyes
You had me at goodbye

I know it’s an antiseptic greeting man
You think I could do better but I don’t think I can
