lyrics

She said I wrote songs about all those other girls that didn't mean anything to me
So my girl got to wondering,
well hey,
Where's the one for me?

So she made me swear to pen her one,
and I'd better say what I mean!
And now I've got this aching pain, and it's bringing me to my knees

She needs the words to ring true to her,
Oh it's such a simple thing
but I'm strapped for rhymes whenever I look inside
I just don't have the vernacular for these things,
I don't have a single word that I could sing
I guess she'll never know what I'm thinking

And so he wrote a song or two, but they were ones she didn't get
She compared it to the fuzzy head you get when you don't eat with your Percocet
This isn't how you wanted it, this isn't formulaic,
what is this shit?
If I don't get at least a line about distance, I think she's going to lose it


Put it in plain terms to a moving back-beat, so kids'll put it on when their dorm-room beds squeak
I want my name in every bedroom- made synonymous for that feeling

I need a Maggie May, a Kiss From A Rose
An instant classic, everyone'll know how it goes
But for the love of God please don't let them know if we go cold

Don't you tell a soul
