So many people gonna say that they want you,
To try to get you thinking they really care.
But there's nothing like the warmth of the one
who has put in the time and you know she's gonna be there.
Back your border when she knows someone crossed it,
Don't let nobody put you down, who you're with,
Take the pain of protecting your name
from the crutch to the cane to the highwire.

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better.
Fell for the woman just when I met her,
Took my sweet time when I was bitter,
Someone understands.
And she knows how to treat a fella right,
Gives me that feeling every night,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight.
Now someone understand me.
I'm in love with a girl (I'm in love with)(x2)

Out the many broken backdoors and windows,
Through the valley of the love of the lost,
Is a hole that is cut through the souls falling down
from the thrones without leaving any windows.
But you drown in a piece for the moment.
The moment was over in time.
Then its gone the hit and run the tactless one has a short life.

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better.
Fell for the woman just when I met her,
Took my sweet time when I was bitter,
Someone understands.
And she knows how to treat a fella right,
Gives me that feeling every night,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight.
Now someone understand me.
I'm in love with a girl (I'm in love with)(x2)

Gonna tell you what you do to think you practice what you preach,
Now I know there's nothing we can't reach.
'Cause the heart can't erase
once it finds a place to be warm and welcome.
To be held in shelter.

I'm in love with a girl who knows me better.
Fell for the woman just when I met her,
Took my sweet time when I was bitter,
Someone understands.
And she knows how to treat a fella right,
Gives me that feeling every night,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight.
Now someone understands me
I'm in love with a girl (I'm in love with)(x3)
Who knows me better,
Wants to make love when I wanna fight.
Now someone understand me.

    General CommentThis certainly isn't a metaphorical or difficult song to understand but it's sort of refreshing that way. Sometimes I want to just hear a good pop song about love. Minus the terrible angst and the unnecessary and often overdone metaphors of love.

    Like I said, it's just a good song. I'd say Gavin DeGraw has definitely improved his song writing and singing from the sound of his new album, which I love.

    My love the whole first verse, especially "Take the pain of protecting your name from the crutch to the cane to the highwire."
