"Typical" as written by Jodi Marr, Randy Craig Cantor and Sarah Hudson....
I guess I gotta crawl before I can walk
I guess I gotta grow before we can talk
And I have the upper hand
I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
I hope you understand

I never wanted it to go this far
Never thought it would be so hard
I never thought I would lose myself
But now I'm left with nothing else

'Cause you're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult

I guess you gotta lose before you can listen
I guess you gotta choose to see what you're missing
I am a better man
I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
I hope you understand

I never wanted it to go this far
Never thought it would be so hard
I never thought I would lose myself
But now I'm left with nothing else

'Cause you're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're predictable, cynical
I see it in your eyes
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult

And I see what this does to you
I'm holding back like I've got something left to prove
You're so cliche
I can see it in your face
See it in myself
The rest is up to you

'Cause you're so typical
You're so damn difficult
'Cause you're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're predictable, cynical
I see it in your eyes
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult
You're so typical
You're so damn difficult

    General CommentI think it's about the "tipical" pretty girl who just like to play with boys cuz they never give you a definitive answer and like she is pretty is not easy for him let her go even knowing that she is playing with him, he just has to do it to get over her "i guess i gotta crawl before i can walk" but i don't know maybe it's just me cuz i gotta crawl before i can walk...
    I really hate have to do that knowing what's gonna happen but this stupid feeling...

    Song MeaningI think it has to do with a relationship that went bad, now the girl doesn't understand why they can't still be friends and this is his way of saying that it really isn't that easy.

    General CommentI believe these are the correct lyrics:


    I guess I gotta crawl before I can walk
    I guess I gotta grow before we can talk
    And I have the upper hand
    I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
    You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
    I hope you understand

    I never wanted it to go this far
    Never thought it would be so hard
    I never thought I would lose myself
    But now I'm left with nothing else

    Cause you're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical

    I guess you gotta lose before you can listen
    I guess you gotta choose to see what you're missing
    I am the better man
    I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
    You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
    I hope you understand

    I never wanted it to go this far
    Never thought it would be so hard
    I never thought I would lose myself
    But now I'm left with nothing else

    Cause you're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're predictable, cynical
    I see it in your eyes
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical

    And I see what this does to you
    I'm holding back like I've got something left to prove
    You're so cliche
    I can see it in your face
    See it in myself
    The rest is up to you (oh oh oh oh)

    Cause you're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    Cause you're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're predictable, cynical
    I see it in your eyes
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical
    You're so typical
    You're so damn typical

    I think this song has to deal with a person that you really like but they just turn you away like everyone else. That person being "typical" as is spelled out in the song many times. You can predict what this person will do next and you will never be together with them.
