"Antonia" as written by and Alexcy Eduardo Cardenas Marquez....
She makes a lot of abstract art
She haggles for the cheapest price
She never orders take out food before ten o'clock at night
She's really into snowmobiles
She owns a lot of nice flashlights
She cares for all the stupid cats that never found their way home
She shaves her legs with Ginsu knives
She quotes a lot of Annie Hall
She misplaced her virginity back in 1995
She's what's keeping me alive
She's the pizza of my eye
Without her near me I would not survive

It gets cold when she's not around
I float until I sink and I'm swallowed up
It's so cold when she's not around
I wait for her to come home and tell me I'll be fine

She's always eating Captain Crunch
She sings a lot of Ben Folds Five
She's scared to death of cobra snakes
Just like Indiana Jones
She tells the dumbest knock-knock jokes
She drinks a lot of Chardonnay
She hates the way I comb my hair
But she married me last June
She was the bride, I was the groom
I cried a lot and then we spooned
Without her in my life I would be doomed

It gets cold when she's not around
I float until I sink and I'm swallowed up
It's so cold when she's not around
I wait for her to come home and tell me I'll be fine
Tell me I'll be fine

She loves the smell of Christmas trees
She sneezes when she sees bright lights
She fainted on the kitchen floor
When her father passed away
Our baby girl is due this May
And when the little lady grows up
I hope that she will be just like her mother

    General CommentI love this song.

    Haha I'm always reminded of that song... "Wouldn't It Be Good"

    Plus, mentioning Ben Folds = instant win

    General Comment"without her in my life, i would be doomed"

    thats lovely, makes you think that even if things didn't work out he would still be happy to just have her as a friend.

    General Commentanyone know what justin's ex-girlfriend's name is?
    becuase i feel like every song on this album is about her in some way, shape, or form and i think this might be her name?
    i don't know i couldn't find anything about her online, but that doesn't mean nobody knows.

    but anyways i really like this song.
    it reminds me a lot of the future freaks me out becuase it's about a girl and all these traits she has... plus i love all of the really random lines justin puts in here. only real mcs songs have at least one of those.
    i think my favorite line in this song is "she misplaced her virginity in 1995".

    General Commentklawansie8 - yeah apparently a lot were moulded around a recent breakup of his.

    oh and it is 'pizza of my eye' even in the booklet,
    my bad.
