"Unbelievable" EMF

It still amazes me that a song can remind me so strongly of a person that when I hear it I am transported in time to memories of how the song interlaced through my life.

While at dinner last night, the song "Unbelievable" by EMF came on over the speakers. When this song came out, my friend and I were obsessed, not only with the song, but with the band members. So there I was sitting at dinner with my staff, drinking a mango sunrise, and in my head I was back in seventh grade. Writing notes on folded pieces of paper, exchanging them in the hallway,and remembering how those were some happy uncomplicated times. This song always reminds me of how we spent countless hours wishing we were older so we could meet the band and have them fall in love with us. So silly!

"You burden me with your questions
You'd have me tell no lies
You're always asking what it's all about
But don't listen to my replies
You say to me I don't talk enough
But when I do I'm a fool
These times I've spent, I've realized
I'm going to shoot through
And leave you

The things, you say
Your purple prose just gives you away
The things, you say
You're unbelievable

You burden me with your problems
By telling me more than mine
I'm always so concerned
With the way you say
You've always go to stop
To think of us being one
Is more than I ever know
But this time, I realize
I'm going to shoot through
And leave you

Seemingly lastless, don't mean
You can ask us
Pushing down the relative
Bringing out your higher self
Think of the fine times
Pushing down the better few
Instead of bringing out the clues
To what the world and everything anger to
Brace yourself with the grace of ease
I know this world ain't what it seems.

What the f**k was that
It's unbelievable"
