So maybe I’ve got a lot to learn
Or maybe I’m just hangin' on my words
Or maybe it’s not a big concern
If I raised my hand would I understand
Why I’m better with you?

So maybe there’s not a lot to say
Or maybe I’m wrong doing things my way
Or maybe things will be okay
If I get it together and do something clever
But make it better with you

So tell me where did I go wrong before you
Before you came along
Well it seems like I was lost
You showed me how to do things right
Now I’m so glad that now you’re mine

So let me say it all again

So maybe there’s not a lot to do
Or maybe I’m just making myself confused
Or maybe I’ve got nothing to lose
But if I get out of line just tell me you’re mine
And how I’m better with you

So tell me where did I go wrong before you
Before you came along
Well it seems like I was lost
You showed me how to do things right
Now I’m so glad that now you’re mine

So use me, don’t let me screw it up
I believe you and I need your touch
Just a little spice of you
Could never be too much
I believe you and I need you now
To make it better somehow
You make it better somehow

So tell me where did I go wrong before you
Before you came along
Well it seems like I was lost
You showed me how to do things right
Now I’m so glad that now you’re mine

So use me, don’t let me screw it up
I believe you and I need your touch
Just a little spice of you
Could never be too much
I believe you and I need you now
You make it better somehow

    General Commentyeah, definitely an awesome song. i agree with the john mayer comparision, but if that turns you off instead of on, i actually think this is a more masculine alternative

    General Commenti'm surprised there aren't more comments then the ones here. i just heard of FTA after watching laguna beach and i'm hooked. i think the lyrics are great and i love his voice. this song is pretty much self explanatory. but i think it's great tune :).

    General Commentjust describes how it is to be with someone you really care about, and if you've broken up just how much the person means to you and how you're willing to do anything to make it better/..as emma lee said..love...

    General CommentThis song is simply about a person who got out of a rather confusing relationship. They're not sure what went wrong. They seemed to be damaged from it also.
    But soon enough he/she meets another person and they seem to be so much better with them. Their a bit scared to get back into a relationship, but everything feels so right, they can't help but wanna get involved.
    They tell their new 'partner' that no matter what, don't let me run away. Things are too good and it would be a mistake to get scared and leave.

    General Commentyeah, i agree with y'all but i wanna add a little...

    i think that since he hadn't had much luck in the past, he's trying to make sure this relationship doesn't go wrong... "so maybe" "or maybe"

    but in the end all he has to do is just relax, live and love.
