Music A To Z: U Is For...

U is for... Under My Umbrella by Incubus and Undone (The Sweater Song) by Weezer.

This is my favorite Incubus song. I actually want to have "Under my umbrella I'm an accomplished exile" tattooed somewhere on my person.

Under My Umbrella

When I close my eyes... I can see for miles.
There's comfort in my dark seat... and chaos in the aisles.

These eyes are not your eyes
and these eyes are not the color that your arid eyes might be.
No, I was not around
when those eyes of yours decided so
I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see.

When I close my eyes... I remember why I smile.
Under my umbrella... I'm an accomplished exile.

These eyes are not your eyes
and these eyes are not the color that your arid eyes might be.
No, I was not around
when those eyes of yours decided so
I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see!

If this is right, I'd rather be wrong.
If this is sight, I'd rather be blind.

I love hearing them play this song live. Everyone just gets so into it.

Undone (The Sweater Song)

Hey bra, how we doin' man?
All right.

This band's my favorite man, don't ya love 'em?

  Aw man, you want a beer?
All right.
Aw man, this is the best. I'm so glad we're all back together and stuff.
This is great, man.

Hey, did you know about the party after the show?
Yeah.
Aw man, it's gonna be the best, I'm so stoked! Take it easy bra'.

I'm me

Sing and
Hear me

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away

Hey, what's up?
Not much.
Did you hear about the party?
Yeah.
Um, I think I'm gonna go but, um, my friends don't really wanna go. Could I get a ride?

Oh no
It go
It gone
Bye-bye
Who I
I think
I sink
And I die

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away
Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away (as I walk away)
Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone

I don't want to destroy your tank-top
Let's be friends and just walk away
It's good to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone
