Dizzy

I'd never listened to Jimmy Eat World before I heard Dizzy. My sister bought Dizzy off of iTunes randomly one day ... this is how I get acquainted with several amazing songs, including AFI's Miss Murder, Hellogoodybe's Here (In Your Arms) and an unmentionable amount of Fall Out Boy songs, too. What can I say? My sis has good taste.
So when I saw this new song in our Purchased folder of iTunes, I thought, hey, cool, new song. So I hit "play" ... and wow. I was blown away.

What a powerful song! It opens with a drum beat that immediantly draws your attention; you just know this one is going to be something big. Then the vocals begin, and you're hooked. This track just grows and grows and it kind of swells inside you, makes you feel something so painfully beautiful ... or maybe that's just me. Either way, I'm in love with this track. I can't stop listening to it.
Again, I couldn't find a music video for this song, so you get one of those watch-the-same-graphic-for-four-minutes-straight videos. Arn't you excited? But hey, at least this graphic is remotely interesting.
So, here are the lyrics and a video for one of my new favorite songs; Dizzy by Jimmy Eat World.

Jimmy Eat World - Dizzy Video



Dizzy
Jimmy Eat World

You close your eyes and kiss your hand then you blow it
But it isn't meant for me, and I notice
If the choice was ours alone
Then why'd we both choose letting go?
Does it end like this?

Time never had a chance to heal your heart
Just a number always counting down to a new start
If you always knew the truth
Then the world would spin around you
Are you dizzy yet?

Respectfully, so honestly, I'm calling out
Do you hear the conversation we talk about?
Back away to the safety of a quiet house
If there's half a chance in this moment
When your eyes meet mine, we show it off

All talk and not a lot to think, we were living dreams
And she never crept close to our naked feet
If there's something left to lose
Then don't let me wear out my shoes
I'm still walking.

I tried, but it rang and rang, I called all night
On a payphone, remember those from another life?
If everything I meant to you
You can lick and seal then fold in two
Then I've been so blind

Respectfully, so honestly, I'm calling out
Do you hear the conversation we talk about?
Back away to the safety of a quiet house
If there's half a chance in this moment
When your eyes meet mine, we show it off

Oh, oh take it all back, take the first, the last and only
Oh, oh take it all back, take it all back
Everything you showed me
Oh, oh this must be how it feels when the feeling goes

I told you as I hovered, I never felt this way
You said I have the shot that stops my clock
Baby it's OK
You said you'd never have regrets
Jesus, is there someone yet
Who got their wish; did you get yours, babe?

Respectfully, so honestly, I'm calling out
Do you hear the conversation we talk about?
Back away to the safety of a quiet house
If there's half a chance in this moment
When your eyes meet mine, we show it off

I'm a BIG J.E.W. fan. . .I've been listening to them since the first time I hear "The Middle" (Sometime in 2nd or 3rd grade)

This album is awesome!!! I got it from the library. I had to take it back though =[. So I'll definatly be buying it!

I love this song too! You always pick great ones. I'm going to their concert three days after MCR. They are playing with Paramore! Woot! Woot! I should probably be studying for finals that day, but I would definitely rather listen to two awesome bands.
