"Devotion" as written by Alan Roy Scott and Robert Jr. Thiele....
Suddenly our shortcomings don't seem to matter at much
Your IQ is 20 points low
And I'm no Six Foot Hot Look All American Man

Sad to say I pushed you away
Waiting for "Mrs. Right"
You never gave up

[Chorus]
Devotion
Waiting for me
You'll always be my girlfriend
I too am waiting for you
I'll always be your friend

I commend your stubbornness
Without it we'd never got this far
I am done with perfection
Chasing her leaves me with nothing but pain

Unlike you
She isn't true
She's got her own concerns
You never gave up

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThis strikes me as really sad. You suck, so I rejected you, and looked for someone better. But everyone else turned me down, so I'm going to come back to you. It's a huge insult really.

    General CommentI think it's more of a sweet song. I mean it's one of those "to know what you have you have to let it go" sort of things. He didn't realize what he had in front of him. He went to go find what he wanted, and he came back because it was in front of him the whole time.

    General Commentthis song is so good. it's about how he dumped a girl who loved him to go chase his dream girl, but his dream girl rejected him so he's going back to his ex because she'll take him back because of her strong feelings. she is like his safety net, and this is summed up in the whole "you'll always be my girlfriend...i'll always be your friend". he knows that she will always be there for him, both as a friend and a lover, where he can only guarantee friendship, as he is likely to go after the next lushgirl he sees, leaving her behind again, drowning in her devotion to him. anyways, that's what i think...
