Wake up its 5 am
You fell in love again
Something wrong with living life like this
At work can't help but stare
Long legs and her dark brown hair
You give her a smile, and thats about it

This store its 6 pm
You see her face again
You catch her eye
You panic and you walk towards her
Can't think of what to say
No words come up today
So you just smile
And its goodbye

You say "so what"
(You say "so what")
I fell in love
But it just won't work because
(Just won't work because)

I fell in love again
Don't know how it happened
She slipped away again
The same as last weekend
Oh, its a routine thing
Just with some new feelings
I always choke up when
I get close to closing in

So I
Stare straight into the mirror
Hope I find something newer
If not I know
I get shot straight back down
I dress up real nice
Make sure my hair is right
Right down a few lines
To tell her I love her

You say "so what"
(You say "so what")
I fell in love
But it just won't work because
(Just won't work because)

I fell in love again
Don't know how it happened
She slipped away again
The same as last weekend
Oh, its a routine thing
Just with some new feelings
I always choke up when
I get close to closing in

And I'll make her mine
The one I sing about all the time
Cause she's in my dreams
Buts is never as real as
As real as it seems
I'm gonna need
A lot more than her
And maybe
You'll be my baby
Or maybe not
Because I'm all choked up

I fell in love again
Don't know how it happened
She slipped away again
The same as last weekend
Its a routine thing
Just with some new feelings
I always choke up when
I get close to closing in

I get close to closing in

    My InterpretationI love this song so much. It shows a much more vulnerable side of John (because I'm assuming the lyrics are mainly from his point of view) than their other stuff. And the song is basically self-explanatory.
