Based on Mark Manasse's double-stop bass riff and the three note "Jeremy" phrase, the song wrote itself in one night. When Steve wasn't at rehearsal, we played it as Jeremy. When Steve's around, it's "Voices."
There they go out on the street again I just don't know what she sees in him. I just don't know what to do about Jeremy I saw them on a date again She hangs around with all of my old friends Most of them don't care too much for Jeremy. There they go again out on the street I don't think that... [she coulda had me] I called her up the other night asked her if she's feeling alright asked her why the hell she hangs with Jeremy It was good to hear her voice again She says she'd like to keep me as a friend She wants me to get to know Jeremy Guitar Solo I heard they got engaged the other day She called me up just to hear what I had to say I hope she has a good life with Jeremy
