"Less Than Love" as written by Andrew David Osenga, Mark Andrew Lockett, Cason Jay Cooley, Benjamin James Aberle, Malcolm Burn and Mike Taquino....
We were fourteen and sitting in a movie
We were almost holding hands
My thumb would venture over for a second or two
Enough for her to understand
I funally got up the nerve
Figured "What did I have to lose?"
It felt good being together
But after the show, I was walking her home
And realized I didn't even like her

It's a lonely world
And everybody's grabbing what they can get
And love is wonderful you've heard
You don't know if you've seen it yet
You can't miss it when it comes
Don't settle for less than love

I was nineteen and hanging out at Denny's
That was where we always went
And this girl I'd seen a couple times before
It was no accident our eyes met
I went over, said hello, asked her name
And then we talked about our hometowns
She said she'd met her boyfriend there
My buddy asked if I got her number as I sat back down

It's a lonely world
And everybody's grabbing what they can get
And love is wonderful you've heard
You don't know if you've seen it yet
You can't miss it when it comes
Don't settle for less than love

Almost every girl I've ever kissed has married
That's not a lot of weddings
But it's sure a crazy thought
And though they all seem now like someone else's story
I wonder what we paid for what we got...

It's a lonely world
And everybody's grabbing what they can get
And love is wonderful you've heard
You don't know if you've seen it yet
You can't miss it when it comes
Don't settle for less than love

    General CommentI love this song.
    The message is pretty straight forward.
    Everyone is looking for love, and you should wait until you know that you have really found love before you get into a serious relationship.
    It's definitely one of my favorites.
