"Corner of Your Heart" as written by and Ingrid Michaelson....
There's a corner of your heart for me.
There's a corner of your heart just for me.
I will pack my bags just to stay in the corner of your heart.
Just to stay in the corner of your heart.

There is room beneath your bed for me.
There is room beneath your bed just for me.
I will leave this town just to sleep underneath your bed.
Just to sleep underneath your bed.

There's one minute of your day.
There's one minute of your day.
I will leave this man just to occupy one minute of your day.
Just to occupy one minute of your day.

Just to sleep underneath your bed.

Just to stay in the corner of you heart.

    General CommentThe song is about a woman who is having an affair. Unfortunately though the man she's having an affair with doesn't love her but she is so infatuated that she doesn't care. She's willing to pack her bags, leave her man, and leave town just to be with him.

    General Commentbeautiful. this girl will do anything just to be apart of this person's life, even if its a small part (such as a corner). She says "there is room beneath your bed" which indicates a desparity, and longing for love. Again, beautiful song.

    General CommentI downloaded all songs from Grey's, I don't even watch the show, but they sure have some damn good music. And this is one of their best songs. Ingrid has such a beautiful voice and lyrics. She just tells things the way they are - she would give everything up in return for an insignificant gesture or a "corner in [his] heart". Unfortunately that's how many people feel when they're truly in love and it's often the reason for a great deal of pain when you find out the one you'd risk everything for wouldn't do it for you.
    Another great one, Ingrid.

    General CommentYeah sure it can be about an affair and romantic love and all that, but to me this song is all about my best friend, female. Nothing romantic or sexual, I just love her so so much. If we go without properly seeing or speaking for a few days, I start missing her but it's ok cause I can text her to meet me on our usual spot, and she'll come and we'll smoke cigarettes and talk about everything that happened. There's one minute of her day just for me.
    And "I will leave this man just to occupy one minute of your day" because she's more important than them.

    So I don't find this song very sad or heartbreaking, cause I know that she also knows that there's room underneath my bed for her. Beautiful nonetheless.

    General CommentIngrid Michaelson most definitely does not get enough credit for her career. She writes amazing lyrics. This song is lovely.
