I still think 'bout the days
Driving around
With nothing to do
But find all the things we never found
You were so pretty
And we were so young
Windows rolled down
Singin' old songs
We'd come back to my room
The sun peeking in
You put on your clothes
And say 'babe I think,
I think I might like you'

I listened to the shadows
Hanging pictures
We were drifters
We'd get too close
And then you'd drift away
From the one thing hanging in the silence
Oh, our love was just too violent
And you'd start screaming
With my head in your hands
I remember the time I said
'Babe I can't be your man'

But I'll do what I can.

And I always knew your bite was bigger than your bark
I remember all those nights I used to watch you sleep in the dark
I had a good heart.
I had a good heart.

    General CommentI first heard this on Carson Daley's show when it first aired, and I could not remember anything about the song when I went to look for it. Here I am, a year later or so later, amazed that I have found this beautiful song once again. I listened to both of his albums, and he is probably one of the most impressive songwriters I have heard in a long, long time. If whoever is reading this hasn't listened to his albums from start to finish, I highly suggest it. Both of them are so worth it.
