Can this be this stranger at my door?
Though, I know I've seen her once before
Come on, why can't I remember your name now?
But in a way, it's best that I don't say

It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

I see the way you stare at me, oh girl
I like the way you sway your hair and twirl
God damn, why can't I remember your name now?
But in a way, its best that I dont say

It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

Is this more than just routine
Weighing down on me
So just give more than just my needs
So weigh it down on me

I see the way you stare at me, oh girl
I like the way you sway your hair and twirl
God damn, why can't I remember your name now?
But in a way, its best that I dont say

It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

    Song MeaningI'm sorry but what this song actually is about is,

    When the group played in IV (where they started out). Someone had to stand by the door of their apartments so no strangers would crash the party, and Eric had such bad memory that he would say "It's a pleasure to meet ya" and they would be like, dude we've met before. So it was his attention span that would fuck him over at the end. So he says once again for the night. To not look dumb.

    Dont believe me? He explained it at their acoustic show last night in SB. and it blew my mind.

    My OpinionI think the songs about liking a girl but being messed up all the time he cant remember anything about her and doesnt want to say it. (I.E. Can this be this stranger at my door?Though, I know I've seen her once before. Come on, why can't I remember your name now?But in a way, it's best that I don't say)
