"Song for No One" as written by Pontus Johan Winnberg, Christian Karlsson and Andrew Wyatt Blakemore....
I met you on the palisades
The sun was spilling kerosene
And I was feeling wide awake
Girl, you can be so obscene
And when you sang a lullaby
A missionary called your name
You disappeared and hopped a flight
For the Serengeti plain

Tell everyone you know
Open up the door
Tell everyone you know
Open up the door

When your love has gone
You carry on
This is her song
This is a song for no one
This is a song for no one

I think I own a photograph
That shows her in the freezing rain
With the Italians on the bank
They know how to entertain
A string of pearls behind your hair
A music box to catch your tears
Now call your mother in L.A.
She hasn't heard your voice in years

Tell everyone you know
Open up the door
Tell everyone you know
Open up the door

When your love has gone
You carry on
This is her song
This a song for no one (x3)

When your love has gone
You carry on
This is her song
This a song for no one

You can jump a ride
But don't ask why
And don't close your eyes

This a song for no one (x3)

    Song MeaningThis was my ex-girlfriend's favorite song. Now that I listen to it again, it reminds me so much of her. Well this is what this song means to me..
    (I met you on the palisades
    The sun was spilling kerosene
    And I was feeling wide awake
    Girl, you can be so obscene)
    I met my ex-girlfriend in California. I had just moved from Kentucky and everything was so different here. I guess you could say i felt wide awake when i was with her. One thing i loved about us was our strong Catholic faith. She was like none of the girls back home.
    (A missionary called your name
    You disappeared and hopped a flight
    For the serengeti plain)
    Then one day she met the morman missionaries. They talked to her about their church and after months of meeting with them she got baptized and we broke up. She is in love with one of those missionaries now. She plans on moving to Utah and marrying there.

    Tell everyone you know
    Open up the door
    Tell everyone you know
    Open up the door

    (When your love has gone
    You carry on
    This is her song
    This the song for no one
    This the song for no one)
    I can't believe she would give us up for mormans. how could she easily be manipulated by them? she is no one to me now.

    (I think I own a photograph
    That shows her in the freezing rain
    With the the Italians on the bank
    They know how to entertain)
    she may be happy now but sooner or later she will come back. those missionaries manipulate people like her to get converts, they don't care.

    (Now call your mother in L.A.
    She hasn't heard your voice in years)
    What's ever worse, she has kept this from her parents. Her parents are hardcore Catholic and she pretends to go to mass so they won't know she has converter morman.
