"The Only Song" as written by and Dan Koch....
And I'm ok
Seems I just needed a break
Sat down but now I'm up again
And finding out I'm alone
My friends left me behind
And into another town
Where this boy is not around
And I don't blame them
I'd do the same

And now I'm alone again

So I'll sing along to the only song I've ever known
And I'll sing it out to the lonely ones, oh oh oh
Those days are gone but the nights roll on taking their place
So I'm singing it out to the lonely ones

Hey, let's write the story again
Where I'm your lover and best friend
Pack our backs and we'll leave this old ghost town behind
And into another town
Where this boy is not around
He made the mistake of leaving you

That was mistake number two

So I'll sing along to the only song I've ever known
And I'll sing it out to the lonely ones, oh oh oh
Those days are gone but the nights roll on taking their place
So I'm singing it out to the lonely ones

Hey, let's write the story again
Where I'm your lover and best friend

So I'll sing along to the only song I've ever known
And I'll sing it out to the lonely ones, oh oh oh
Those days are gone but the nights roll on taking their place
So I'm singing it out to the lonely ones, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

    General CommentGreat song.. possibly the one I can most relate to off of the new album. To me this song is about a guy who's left all alone - all his friends and even his girl left him. But I get the feeling that he's coping with it. I think he would like to get back together with his girl ("let's write the story again where I'm your lover and best friend") but I think he finds relief that there are other people who are in the same predicament as he is.

    In a way, I think he tries to let other people know that he's been alone and lonely just like them - and because they share that common bond they aren't really totally alone.

    All in all, an amazing song. =)

    Right now I can relate to this song more than any other song out there.

    I just graduated High School in June and now all my friends, even some I've known for 7 years, are all just leaving and I'm pretty much just left here by myself.

    And the girl aspect of the song... oh yeah! I really screwed things up with this one girl I used to be with, and it's just my biggest regret ever.

    Sherwood = Grand

    General CommentI absolutly love this song! I completely agree with fedorov1fan when he says that Sherwood are underatted. They are soooo talented, and their lyrics are always so easy to relate to.
    "Let's write this story again, where I'm your lover and best friend" is just perfect!
    The acoustic version of this song is also amazing....
