I wake up
Thoughts of you
Tattooed to my mind
As I wonder
What to wear
What to eat
Who to be
Will I see you again

And as my car breaks down
I shake my head and say
What a day

If you only knew
What I went through just to get to you
I'm hanging from you
And I'll hold on if you want me to

Every bus, every train,
Ever cab, every lane is JAMMED
So I look to the sky
And I reach for the planes with my hands

If all my days go wrong
I'll think about last night
It went right

If you only knew
What I went through just to get to you
I'm hanging from you
And I'll hold on if you want me to

If you only knew
What I went through just to get to you
I'm swinging from you
And there's nothing I would rather do

    General Commentthat's because this song was written about 6 or so years ago by adam and the band back when they were known as kara's flowers and played more rock which i definately prefer, but maroon 5 is good too.
