"Mr. Right" as written by and Nicholas/richards Santino....
My girlfriend's got a boyfriend, funny
He doesn't make a dime all day
And all her girlfriends' boyfriends make money
What more can I say?
It's true
He never made it through a day of school
The only thing he studied was you
He knows your body better than you do

Maybe I'm your Mr. Right
Baby, maybe I'm the one you like
Maybe I'm a shot in the dark
And you're the morning light
Whoa
Maybe this is sad but true
Baby, maybe you've got nothing to lose
You could be the best of me
When I'm the worst for you

My girlfriend's got a boyfriend, running
To catch the bus to meet
To meet up with the boyfriend's girlfriend
Who's stunning
She's such a sight to see
It's true
The moment he laid eyes on you he knew
The only wish he wanted came true
He knows he's lucky that he met someone like you

Maybe I'm your Mr. Right
Baby, maybe I'm the one you like
Maybe I'm a shot in the dark
And you're the morning light
Whoa
Maybe this is sad but true
Baby, maybe you've got nothing to lose
You could be the best for me
When I'm the worst for you

You can always change your mind
And you can't change mine
I know you can't change mine

Maybe I'm your Mr. Right
Baby, maybe I'm the wrong you like
Maybe I'm a shot in the dark
And you're the morning light
Whoa
Maybe this is sad but true
Baby, maybe you've got nothing to lose
You could be the best for me
When I'm the worst for you

    General Commentfirst of all i think it's "CAN always change your mind, and you can't change mine"

    i think some of the other posts have the right idea. But i from listening to the lyrics and watching the video i think the point is more that he might not be good enough for her but at least he makes her happy.

    if you look at the video there are two couples. there's the couple with the curly haired girl who seems to have the wealthier boyfriend. he buys her nice clothes and buys her nice meals and nice gifts. He's got a car and he drives her around but she doesn't appreciate any of it and pays more attention to her phone than she does to him.

    then you see the other couple with the girl with the dark hair with the blue streaks in it. she has a poor boyfriend. it shows them shopping at a thrift store, eating burgers on a curb, she needs to drive him around because he can't afford a car and when it's her birthday he gives her a cupcake because he can't afford to buy her anything but she is happy with him and doesn't need him to spoil her at all.

    when it shows the two couples at the end the girls hug and afterwards the curly haired girl glares at her as she walks away because she's jealous of how happy the other girl is. during the whole video it makes the point to show how disappointed the curly haired girl's boyfriend is that she doesn't appreciate any of the stuff he does for her like the whole time he's thinking "what a bitch" and that she's probably just staying with him for the status of dating a guy with money even though she doesn't like him.

    i know that the meaning of songs and the meaning of videos don't always match up but it is something to consider.

    just paying attention to the lyrics i'd say that he's saying that he is crazy about his girlfriend. he only has eyes for her but he doesn't really know what she sees in him when there are plenty of other guys who might be better suited for her that she could be with.

    i think the chorus and meaning of the song is more about how the rest of society sees their relationship than what he really thinks about it. that's why it says "maybe i'm a shot in the dark" because he's not society's ideal picture of a good boyfriend so she's taking a chance at being with him rather than going for the wealthier guy who can take care of her. she's the "morning light" because it's easy to see why he'd want to be with her. but he's saying that despite that maybe he is the right guy for her and maybe he can make her happy and that she should give him a chance because she can always change her mind but he knows that he'll always want to be with her.

    it's about how some people will see a beautiful girl who seems to have the whole package and could probably get any guy she wanted but she's with some "loser" who is poor and not very good looking and they think she deserves better than that guy and wonder what she sees in him. this song is coming from the point of view of the guy she's with who nkows that that's what people are thinking when they see them together.

    General CommentI think this song is about him looking at his relationship from a new perspective (nick is the boy he's talking about) and realizing how entranced he is by this girl and how she takes up his whole life. He's realizing it's kind of pathetic. He thinks that she's the most wonderful thing in the world and that he doesn't deserve her.

    You could be the best for me,
    when I'm the worst for you.

    I think the girl tries to show they're equal , but he'll never know it. He thinks that she'll fall out of love with her, while he'll always love her.

    You always change your mind
    and you can't change mine

    General CommentIt teaches us that Mr. Right is not the one who is richer and who can give the world to the girl; rather Mr. Right is that very person who makes the girl happy no matter what situation they are in (for richer or poorer, for better or for worse).

    Great song -- it's sad but true. ;)

    General CommentIt's also "and all her girlfriends' boyfriends make money" instead of "and all her girlfriends' boyfriends with money".

    But besides those mistakes, this song makes this album seem so promising. I love everything Justin Richards touches, and Nick was great before he came along.

    My InterpretationThis is song is actually really kinda sad. He is the boyfriend he's singing about, and in his eyes he's not anywhere near good enough for his girlfriend. He loves her and wants the best for her, which isn't him.

    General Commenti think it goes "you can be the best OF me" instead of "you can be the best FOR me"
