    Oh, it's "like glue." :/ All these years I heard it as "light blue," and wondered if Stephin Merritt knew any Russian since the Russian word for "light blue," голубой, also has a slang meaning of "gay."

    It's not even an implication of gay, considering the lyrics straight out say "I thought I was just the *guy* for you"

    @absinthecity: While Stephin Merritt is known to write from the point of view of a girl or a heterosexual guy, he's actually gay. I think the lyrics imply that it's a relationship between two guys. Anyways, this song is my favorite off of this album and one of my favorites overall.
