I never thought I
Could feel the way I
Do when I'm in your arms

Sing your melody to me
And if you want me to leave
I walk away from this old farm

Baby, baby,
There ain't no cows left for milking
Baby, baby,
There ain't no chickens laying nothing
I'll walk on anything for you
I'll walk on anything for you
I'll walk off on anything for you
I'll walk off on anything for you

I was always told that
I would find somebody
I could keep a promise for

Words that don't mean a thing
To a broken-hearted man
I've felt that way before


Baby, baby,
I don't remember feeling that way
Baby, baby,
And I owe it all to you
I'd take a nine to five for you
I'll take that nine to five for you
I'd take a nine to five for you
I'll work that nine to five for you

I'm convinced that nothing's true
Just cause love worked out for you
Don't impress me no more

Words that don't mean a thing
To me I'm a broken-hearted man
I've got dreams but nothing to hope for


Lady, lady,
Keep your distance I mean no good
Lady, lady,
I'm broken-hearted and I think the world should
All be broken-hearted too
All be broken-hearted too
All be broken-hearted too
Ya'll should be broken-hearted too
I'd like to give all my pain to you
If I could I'd give all my pain to you

    General CommentMan, I love this song. I don't know what SSS stands for, but I kinda get what the song's about, even if I'm unable to articulate it at the moment.

    General Commenteach verse shows a different side of love - or, if you'd like to interpret it that way, it could be three stages of the progression of love. to heartbreak and then being worn out.

    the three S's are also (not officially confirmed but speculated and very plausible!) representative of the three who perhaps wrote each verse, or influenced/inspired each verse.

    SSS = Scott, Seth, and Sean

    (Sean being probably the person Scott refers to in an interview: "A friend of mine growing up, Sean, he was the hardest-working farmer.")
