My lady, she's nothing more than a melody
Whistlin underneath my skin
And pourin through my blood veins
Absorbing all the brain waves
Overtaking all my dreams.

And i could never be unfaithful
My everything is far too much to risk
And girl you're so extraordinary
But she's the only reason i exist

I'm bad news baby, i'm gonna break your heart
I burn my bridges daily before any others cross
I'm bad news baby, i'm not the man you want
The only girl i'll ever love is trapped inside a song

They tell me i'm nothing more than a tragedy
I'm headed for a breakdown
But they don't know my lady
They can't see how much she loves me
She'll never let me hit the ground

And i could never be unfaithful
My everything is far too much to risk
And girl you're so extraordinary
But she's the only reason i exist

I'm bad news baby, i'm gonna break your heart
I burn my bridges daily before any others cross
I'm bad news baby, i'm not the man you want
The only girl i'll ever love is trapped inside a song
A song

It's a song s-s-song, s-song, s-song
A song is all i have it's all i own
Oh, i'd sell my soul
I'd sell my soul for a song
Just a song

I'm bad news baby, i'm gonna break your heart
I burn my bridges daily before any others cross
I'm bad news baby, i'm not the man you want
The only girl i'll ever love is trapped inside a song

    General CommentI think this song is talking about how he loves music more than anything else in this world and it will always be first in his life. And he is writing about how he couldnt love anything but music and that hes not the type of man a girl is looking for.

    GORGEOUS song. his lyrical abilty is insanely beautiful

    General CommentI agree..he is saying that in every fiber of his being he is consumed with his music..that it is him to the core..everything he cares about and he can not put it at risk by letting some other interest or love come in.

    Remembering how he said in an interview that music never lets you down like people or laughs at you, calls you names etc. , he has turned to music to make him happy, console him, get his feelings out, love him etc.

    That to him putting someone in his life is being unfaithful to his first love, music and hence to himself since it is him..coursing through every vein.

    He is saying that others tell him he is too obsessed, to possessed that he is wasting his potential and it is a shame for this desire for music and he is replying they don't understand..they don't see how much he feels loved by his music and belief that it will never let him down.

    He is telling the girl, although she is great, he is warning her that he will hurt her as he is not looking for love as he is already in love with someone else..his songs and music which are and always will be first in his life. He knows his obsession with music and his passion will break a female's heart as he will always put the music first and thus he tries not to get involved. That he himself does not exist if there is no music or if he ever lets something or someone come first.

    That his music is all he will really ever truly own...that if he must he would sell his very soul.

    She is saying that he knows women need to feel they are first and he knows in his heart, he can never do that and being the nice guy that he is, he tries to warn them before they fall in love with them.

    His lyrics are unbelievably..my favorite songs of his are 31 songs, dream reality and one last song.

    Since we are the recipient of his passion's outcome, his music in all its talent, I am glad he has this passionate love in his life and get let out all his feelings and beliefs in his songs and that we can hear them. '

    This man is a true artist as my son is (drawing wise) who used to tell me he doesn't care if he ever gets married or has kids..that the focus of his life is art and that is the reason why he was born..that God blessed him with talent and this is why he exists. I suspect that Josiah like my son is very girted intellectually and creativity wise

    It seems that is how Josiah feels and these types of people live life on a different plane..their art is all consuming.
