"Angels & Girlfriends" as written by and John Ondrasik....
I met her down at a Pineapple Parking lot
She said I love you more
I said I love you not
And all the while I stood in line at the paint shop

She said I'll take you where you'll never go again
I'll be your only love
You'll be my only friend
And for your time I'll let you dine at my office

Angels never come for free
If you know what I know you know what I mean
You can love 'em now, you can love em later

Girlfriends never fall for fun
They can tie you up make you come undone
You can learn to fly, but you can't create her

She led me down though a forest of wooden chairs
As she ate my lunch I looked out for bears
And in a sense you could say she snared my attention

She said I am your perfect finality
And as I got her off she got off her knees
And for my grind I got honorable mention

Everybody needs one
Everybody's bound
Everybody swings upon the merry-go-round

Girlfriends never fall for fun
They can tear you up make you come undone

So now I'm stuck in this pineapple parking lot
I had what I was now I'm what I got
And if I may, may I lend you some kind of direction

If you go you may never come back again
She's my only love
She my only friend
And for that there is no kind of protection

Everybody needs one
Everybody's bound
Everybody swings and meanwhile Mary Goes Around

Angels never come for free
If you know what I know you know what I mean
1st you hate to love and then you love to hate her

Girlfriends never fall alone
Now you know what I know you know what I've known
I'll see you now, and I'll see you later
I'll see you later
I think I can save her
I wish I could date her

    General CommentI think this song is about a prostitute lol.
    And he realizes that he could have her but only for a little while.
    ....but that's just me, I suck at figuring out what lyrics mean lol

    General CommentGreat song...

    Girlfriends never fall for fun
    They can tie you up make you come undone

    he's basically talking about how having sex with his (girlfriend) gets boring after a while... just not fun anymore.


    To me this song isn't about a prostitute but just some chick he's cheating on his girl with.

    What he means by angles never come for free is that there is always a price to pay if you start cheating emotionally or maybe just a broken relationship.

    At the end he give's some advice:

    and if I may… may I lend you some kind of direction
    If you go you may never come back again

    He is saying that once u start cheating you might not be able to stop because the sex is so much better and
    "for that there is no kind of protection"

    a clever line describing how there is no kind of protection (condom) that will prevent you from the diesese of addicted... addiction to the sex and the rush that it gives you...

    General CommentHardly. She's the classic beauty who's been passed around yet remains hopeful and open with each new love. He's greedy, as she anticipates, so while she feels him out she lets him spend money on her as he insists. Girls don't use guys who can focus and treat them well. She waits to find if he's worthy of her devotion and as she tests him, Rico Suave gets a big head and thinks, "Heck, if I can get this babe, what CAN'T I have??" Then the best girlfriend he could've had turns back into an angel...for someone else. Later he regrets it, if only for a short bit, and lonely roams to sift in and out of meaningless relationships with no one to support him when times get tough. That's what you get for being greedy.

    General CommentIt's totally about a prostitute. Lots of hints in there, including "as she ate my lunch I looked out for bears." Bears is code for cops. Why else was he watching out for the police if he wasn't getting some action from a hooker?

    General CommentI'm starting to think this may be about drugs. Angel can be one of a variety of drugs. He starts, gets hooked.

    She said I'll take you where you'll never go again
    I'll be your only love, you'll be my only friend
    You can learn to fly, but you can't create her

    works in my head. ;)
