still loving this band

If you read this blog clear back in 2008, then you know we saw Nada Surf.
It still remains one of my favorite Texas concerts!
That's really saying something. I've seen a few bands or two... ;)

Three important rules for breaking up
Don't put off breaking up when you know you want to
Prolonging the situation only makes it worse
Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly

Don't make a big production
Don't make up an elaborate story
This will help you avoid a big tear jerking scene

If you wanna date other people say so
Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected
Even if you've gone together for only a short time,
And haven't been too serious,
There's still a feeling of rejection

When someone says she prefers the company of others
To your exclusive company,
But if you're honest, and direct,
And avoid making a flowery emotional speech
when you break the news,
The boy will respect you for your frankness,
And honestly he'll appreciate the kind of straight forward manner
In which you told him your decision
Unless he's a real jerk or a cry baby you'll remain friends

I'm head of the class
I'm popular
I'm a quarter back
I'm popular
My mom says I'm a catch
I'm popular
I'm never last picked
I got a cheerleader chick

Being attractive is the most important thing there is
If you wanna catch the biggest fish in your pond
You have to be as attractive as possible
Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean
Wash it at least every two weeks
Once every two weeks

And if you see Johnny football hero in the hall
Tell him he played a great game
Tell him you liked his article in the newspaper

I'm the party star
I'm popular
I've got my own car
I'm popular
I'll never get caught
I'm popular
I make football bets.
I'm a teachers pet

I propose we support a one month limit on going steady
I think It will keep people more able to deal with weird situations
And get to know more people

I think if you're ready to go out with Johnny
Now's the time to tell him about your one month limit
He wont mind he'll appreciate your fresh look on dating
And once you've dated someone else you can date him again
I'm sure he'll like it
Everyone will appreciate it

You're so novel what a good idea
You can keep your time to your self
You don't need date insurance
You can go out with whoever you want to
Every boy, every boy, in the whole world could be yours
If you'll just listen to my plan

Whose Authority by Nada Surf

I walk like you guide me, my eyes
Are shut like I'm blind 
Turn to you and listening and tryin' 
To be in your mind 
There's a feeling that I get 
When I look to the west 
'Bout having all the answers 
Still failing the test 

Wolf packs and convoys and 
Captains and men 
Surprised in translation 
World without end 
Welcome back to real life 
The picture is gone 

Put a contract out on things that go on and on 
How do you stay where 
You most want to be? 
Where'd you get the patience 
Did it come easily? 

On whose authority
I have none over me 
There's none that I can see 

On whose authority
No one speaks to me
All the tales with paper heroes 
The ones who dyed the sun 
And called it yellow 
The ones who made you run ...
