I could be the guy at the end of the street
high on caffeine,
Ranting and raving, baby
And that's okay,
At least I've got options.

Or I could be the one that gives it all up,
Moves back to the parents' house.
Live in the basement baby,
And that's okay,
At least I've got options.

All the things you'll see,
And the places you'll go.
All the people you need.
Everybody wants you,
Wants to be you.

I could settle down, be responsible,
Be a good man,
Learn how to fix things, baby,
And that's okay,
At least I've got options.

Or I could try and learn what I unlearned
Moving to business.
And make loads of money for gullible people,
That's okay,
At least I've got options.

All the things you'll see,
And the places you'll go.
All the people you need.
Everybody wants you,
Wants to be you.

I never wanted to change you,
I only wanted to share.
No I don't believe, I don't believe.
Starting over and over again,
Over and over again.

Somebody who understands and loves me,
Despite all my weaknesses baby,
And that's okay,
At least I've got options.

All the things you'll see,
''All the things that you wanted to see''
And the places you'll go.
''All the places that you wanted to go''
All the people you need,
''All the people you wanted to need''
And the lovers you've known.
''All the lovers that you wanted to know''

Everybody wants you,
Wants to be you.

''Over and over again,''
''Over and over again.''

LOVE GOMEZ - UNDER RATED BAND!
Never noticed how corny this is. 
LOOK......I am GOMEZ,  ok?  That's who I am.   What do you want.....Jewels?  Gold?   Options?    
I am a very  wealthy band........a a very powerful band........a very Extravagant BAND!
Still have a little ringing in my ears from standing too close to the speakers at their concert on this tour.
Woo, haven't heard this number in a while, a nice pick-me-up!
boy does time fly----I just realized this is from 2011.  They should be due for a new one soon.   I did not like this last one very much compared to their others.

Agreed. A little bubble-gum goes a long way in my book...
''Gomez, je t'aime, mon amour, mon cher''

''Gasp...Morticia, that's French!'
Ahhh...nice refreshing bubbly pop...as it should be. Well done.{#Dance}
ugh. so, just...needle in the ear. But chipper. An overly chipper needle in the ear.

Gomez is one of the most underestimated bands in the world delivering high quality material right from the start. Good to see that his song is being picked up and appreciated...

What a rockin' set! RP is keeping me sane while I look for a job...in this suck-y economy...with a disability. I have vowed that I am making a hefty donation once I have a solid, full-time job again.

Given my current situation (and the fact that I *may* end up in my parents' basement again), I am especially tickled by this song.

Thank you, Bill, for lifting my spirits! {#Daisy}
 
First - hang in there, errantpenny! You've got optimism, and that will help a LOT.

Second - I love this song.  Toe-tapping, chair-dancing stuff.  I have to get some Gomez into my library one of these days! {#Dancingbanana}

I'm thinking a well-played Rackett:

? I think Spoon is more hard-edged, atonal. This is pretty poppy!

Contrabass sax would be amazing with this. Good call!

That's the coolest and most simply elegant album art cover I've seen in a long while. I really miss the art and artistry of album covers back when vinyl ruled the music industry.
That Ian Ball's voice and style is very distinctive - love the fact that 3 members of the band sing and all 4 write - keeps it lively!  Gomez rocks!

Gomez are Dr. Seuss fans! {#Dancingbanana_2}

Saw these guys do this on Letterman the other night...they certainly are still GOOD and deserve more exposure!  Play the new stuff more, please!

Pretty ordinary for a Gomez track.  Truly shocked as i was insulting this song in my head I did not expect to find Gomez as the band.  Way to peppy for me.
New singer?
This is unbelievably catchy.
I love this new album. Good stuff end to end.
Really digging this new album. This track especially.
Sounds good to me... I would like some more options?


2nd! Here's hoping this album is better than the prior couple of albums and is up to par with "In Our Gun".
...light and refreshing...
