"Write You A Song" as written by and Tom Higgenson....
I don't know how to make lots of money
I got debts that I'm trying to pay
I can't buy you nice things, like big diamond rings
But that don't mean much anyway
I can't give you the house you've been dreaming
If I could I would build it alone
I'd be out there all day, just hammering away
Make us a place of our own

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without you

I don't k I'd make a good soldier
I don't believe in being violent and cruel
I don't know how to fight, but I'll draw blood tonight
If somebody tries hurting you

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without you

It's set on the table (it's out on the table)
Both of us knew all along (knew all along)
I've got your loving and you've got my song

I don't know how to make lots of money
I don't know all the right things to do
I can't say where we'll go, but the one thing I know
Is how to be a good man to you
Until I die that's what I'll do

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without
I will write you a song (I will write you a song)
That's how you'll k my love is still strong (love is still strong)
I will write you a song
And you know from this song that I just can't go on without you

    General CommentThis is definitely going to be the next "Hey There Delilah". I'm completely in love with this song. It's so beautiful and slow.

    General CommentI think this is this cd's equivalent to "Hey There Delilah"....a slower song about a girl who he says he doesn't know how to do some basic things for but that he can write a song to prove his love for her.

    General CommentThis song is really sweet. Pretty clear meaning: He's not rich and he can't buy his girl all the things in the world, but he's trying to show her his love by writing a song.

    General CommentI don't think its possible to love someone as much as he loves her...

    He can't give her the world but to him she is the world... And all that he can give her is this song.

    SO much feeling behind that.

    I want to be that girl!

    General CommentThis is the type of love I want. It's the actions and meaningful things that show how much you love a person. Spending money on a house, diamond rings is superficial and doesn't always show love. Being willing to protect you and give you someone one of a kind (the song) from the heart shows true love. Makes me want to cry

    General CommentWhen I saw them live just a few weeks ago Tom said "Alot of girls said that they wished a guy would write them a love song so I guess this was kinda my response" and then they started playing Write You A Song.

    General CommentWhoever he's writing this to is one lucky girl!
    I adore their lyrics.
    "I don't know that I'd make a good soldier
    I don't believe in being violent and cruel
    I don't know how to fight, but I'll draw blood tonight
    If somebody tries hurting you tonight"

    Breathtakingly amazing.
