"A-Hole" as written by Jaret Ray Reddick and Alfredo Joaquin Zuniga....
When I came home my stuff was on the lawn
I thought she was happy, but I was wrong
The note she left it took me by surprise
Said I've turned into, some other guy
The things she said that she gave up for me
She says it was a waste of time

Guess I don't really know, what I was thinking
Would've thought we would float, but we kept sinking
Things were so good
But you were in love, with some other guy
He looked just like me, but I make you cry,
You know I don't mean to, I'm just an asshole sometimes

I never saw myself as being alone
And maybe that was my problem, 'cause now she's gone
And I can't help but think of how things could be (how things could be)
And I hope she's happy, happy with out me
And all the things she gave up for me,
I took for granted time after time

Guess I don't really know, what I was thinking
Would've thought we would float, but we kept sinking
Things were so good
But you were in love, with some other guy
He looked just like me, but I make you cry,
You know I don't mean to, I'm just an asshole sometimes

And please don't think I'm complaining
I was just happy to have her for a time
And if you see her tell her I said
Hello and that I'm doing just fine

Guess I don't really know, what I was thinking
Would've thought we would float, but we kept sinking
Things were so good
But you were in love, with some other guy
He looked just like me, but I make you cry,
You know I don't mean to, no
You know I don't mean to
I'm just an asshole sometimes

Guess I don't really know
I'm just an asshole sometimes
Guess I don't really know
I'm just an asshole sometimes
Guess I don't really know
Guess I'm an asshole sometimes

    General CommentI think this is a great song. Weird title for a somewhat heart felt song. I think the title was a bad choice, 'cause people either expect a wild profane fun-loving song or parents expect... well, the same thing but in a bad way. ;) Either way, both are wrong.
    Good song. Definitely worth listening to.

    General CommentI agree with jmac. I don't think there's another guy involved. 'But you were in love, with some other guy
    He looked just like me, but I make you cry' He doesn't say she IS in love, but that she was. To me that conveys that she was in love with him but not the him that made her upset (the him that made her cry) She loved him when he was there for her, probably the him she started dating in the beginning when he was attentive and more devoted.
    Thanks jmac - I'd never thought of it before you mentioned it, I just took it for granted that she was seeing someone else.

    General CommentThis is a great song! The album is defintly worth buying.. many good songs! :-D I voted a five! but with a look at the title, you wouldn't expect this song to be much more then cursing and calling some one an ahole

    General CommentIt took me a few listens to pick up on it, but I'm pretty sure there is no "other guy" like I thought. She's just saying there's no way he can be him, since the old him would never make her cry.
