"Nuisance" as written by John Reuben Zappin and Carl Robert Pendleton....
So here we are in the same old spot
Know that something needs to happen
But our mouths are locked
Tongue tied, closed tight, sewed shut, yup
I tried hard, but it just wouldn't come up

It's on the tip of my tongue
It's in the front of my mind
But the words were still so hard to find
Finally the reality of the things to come
Pushed me to the edge
I jumped off the cliff into the abyss as I said,

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents
You can, you can take it or leave it

The conversation lingered on and on and
Before I knew it night had turned to dawn and
We'll be searching for the truth in all of it, ha
Are we debating just to win the argument?

'Cause none of us want to hear about when we go wrong
This song could easily be from me to you or me to John
'Cause I have to potential to be the guiltiest
My greatest strength is also my greatest weakness

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents
You can, you can take it or leave it

Let's think about this path that we're taking
Let's think about this future we're creating
Let's think about this life that is fading
Think about it, come on
Think about it, now

Let's think about the time that we're spending
Investing in monetary things that are ending
Let's think about it and let's think together and
Let's think about what we can do to make it better

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents
You can, you can take it or leave it

We can and we will do better than this

    General CommentDang guys... why don't you just rip apart what this person says.

    Chill out! Maybe to them this song is about a girl. That is what is GREAT about music: everyeone can interpret their own meaning. I can see the case being made that this is about a girl. I can also see the case for your arguments too. After all, this is about what the song means to each individual person.

    General CommentIts John Rueben his songs are more meaningfull.
    Not about girls.
    Song Writers write there songs to be interpretted how they want them to be.
    Not construed into something as meaningless as a girl.

    General CommentUm...

    Actually, MANY artists write their songs to relate to the listener. That means that it is all about what the listener interprets when he hears a song. Just because his opinion differs from yours doesn't mean that he is wrong. "This song could easily" (LOL... John Reuben quote) be about how a relationship (possibly with a girl) is not going the way that it should be. It isn't that hard to come up with multiple meanings for these lyrics. Don't be so narrow-minded to think that your opinion is the ONLY one that is right. I'm not saying that yours is, because I agree with your interpretation as well as 360degrees.
