Annie, Use Your Telescope Lyrics

It started feeling like October
I got stranded on the road
You know where to find me
Anytime you want me Annie,
Annie, use your telescope

So they made my life into a movie
As if I could forget those years
But I know where the time's...

    At the very beginning of the song, Andrew states, "It started feeling like October." Now this embraces the cold, dark feeling that is felt by him during this time in his life, and he needs to relate back to his imaginary friend, Annie, that helped him in his times of need as a child. The Telescope emphasizes that fact that he has distanced himself from her and she needs to use a device (a telescope) that is used for searching, to find him and bring him comfort and peace in his time of anguish.

    When he says,

    "So they made my life into a movie
    As if I could forget those years
    But I know where the time's gone
    Just how well my mind's been wandering"

    He means that he understand that the time has passed, he just hasn't realized what happened to his carefree state of mind and has lost track of the importance of self-gratitude.

    The movie he speaks of is just referring to his life as a celebrity. The word "movie" isn't literal, but his life has been documented so that's what he has compared it to.

    He notes that he is only getting farther from "her", because as his life progresses, and time goes on, his youth becomes more distant and his troubles increase. And once he finally reunites with this imaginary friend, the feeling of his youth will be returned.

    However, he realizes this is an impossible task, so he copes with the loss of his childhood and repeats the phrase, "Annie, I will make it" repeatedly to try to comfort her as his life continues, when in reality, he only trying to reassure himself that everything will be ok.
