Anything but Mine Lyrics
Me and Mary making our way into the night
You can hear the cries from the carnival rides
The pin-ball bells and the ski-ball slides
Watching the summer sun fall out of sight

I think this is a perfect song to describe a Summer romance between a couple who has met while vacationing in a beach town. He (the singer/storyteller) longs to be with her and make the most of his time with his new lover, but knows that realistically it can't last, as Summer comes to an end and he continues to bring up (in the chorus) how tomorrow he's leaving back to his hometown, and he'll have to say goodbye to this Summer love. But they grew close fast and he can't imagine her being with anyone but him, as it's clear feelings for each other developed fast & strong. I love how he describes the carnival rides, sand beneath her feet. You really get a feel for Summer when you hear this song. I'm sure it reminds many of us of a certain Summer that we still reflect upon, that was special to us because of someone we once met/spent time with in the Summer, but unfortunately had to say goodbye to at one point. Summer romances are a beautiful thing, but sadly not long lasting... usually because of distance between the couple, work schedules, college, other situations that make staying or being together a challenge.

There are so many things I long to do to you means he longs to have sex with her. He says he loves her and thry both laugh because they know it isnt true. She knows hes feeding her a line of bs. And he knows it too.
Not only does that song set a strong, love affect, it also shows struggle and the love of one man. Meeting a girl for the summer and ending up completely and devotionally inlove. Having to say goodbye and knowing soon, they may forget each other is the hardest thing, but in his heart she will forever be his.

This song is simply about missing a "summer love". My friend was on set when they filmed the music video for this song in Myrtle Beach SC. It's a bout taking a vacation and finding this girl named Mary in the same tourist town and quickly falling in love/lust with this girl. The only problem is it's his last day there. He is "going back to Cleveland". He hates having to say goodbye to this girl who he has met and spent his vacation getting to know her.He wishes somehow they could stay together.
