Tim is repeating the HSC, but he's more into music than studying. He is juggling playing in a band with handing in assignments and the music is winning. Mandy is taking a year off before she starts uni. Her problem is she doesn't really know what she wants to study, so she's working (sort of) and even by her own admission spends too much watching daytime TV and drinking tea with best friend Alice, with the tea being an excuse for talking - lots. Tim and Mandy meet at a gig. The attraction is immediate, but they are both so shy and self-conscious, but over time they slowly, awkwardly, move toward each other, meeting by coincidence, each unsure as to how the other feels. Set in the cafes, pubs and dives of Sydney's Inner West You're the Kind of Girl I Write Songs About is a ballad to that time of your life when you are trying to work out who you are, what it is you want and what will it take to get you there.
