Oh,this suggestion may be a bit suggestive
But I've had it on my mind all night
And you're attentive but you're dying for attention
Girl it takes two just to feel alright

It isn't real if it's just one night
I'm tryin' real hard
Oh, just be real

The love on my lips
Sweetheart, I'm sorry
But you're not the first
With lust in my eyes
I'll be undressing you with every word

I think I'm coming onto to something quick
My words are flyin' right over your head
Oh there's a lot more to it than this
I'm not just tryin' to get in your bed

It isn't real if it's just one night
I'm tryin' real hard
Oh, just be real

The love on my lips
Sweetheart, I'm sorry
But you're not the first
With lust in my eyes
I'll be undressing you with every word

Oh so tell me now, you've gotta let me know
So c'mon, c'mon, you've gotta let me know
I'm about to explode!

The love on my lips
Sweetheart, I'm sorry
But you're not the first
With lust in my eyes
I'll be undressing you with every word

    Song MeaningC'mon, guys, John pretty much admitted he was a virgin that one time on stage and he's far too classy to write a song about lust without having some deep meaning to it ;)

    Undressing her with every WORD... he's getting to know her with every word... right? So maybe he's not undressing her in a literal sense, but a figurative one ;)& if you follow that road of thinking, the rest is easy to follow, because it'll all fit like puzzle pieces if you think about it long enough (:

    General CommentI think this is about a guy who isn't sure if he is infatuated with or really in love with a girl. It seems the versus keep going back and forth where he will say she isn't the first he has felt lust for, but then he contradicts himself by saying:

    "Oh there's a lot more to it than this
    I'm not just tryin' to get in your bed"

    That's just how I understood it.

    General CommentI almost get this image that a guy is at a bar and sees this girl , shes all over him, and its obvious whats going on. Shes probably drunk and then towards the middle of the song hes like "oh shit shes stupid/ out of it" but its just a one night stand, nothing special. Its like he doesnt want to do it, but his lust has complete control of him and he feels almost sorry for her.

    General Comment"sweetheart, i'm sorry but you're not the first"

    i think the girl's a virgin and he's confessing that it's not his first time having sex.
    that's just how i see it,
    it's all too familiar to me.
