"Nobody Gets Me But You" as written by and Britt Daniel....
Nobody gets what I say,
Must be some way to convey,
But no-one else remembers my name,
Just the parts that I play.

Nobody gets,
Nobody gets me but you.
No-one gets what I've done,
Everyone else seems to look trough.
Oh but maybe I've never wanted them to.
Couldn't count on it anyway.

Nobody gets,
Nobody cuts me like you.

Nobody gets what I say,
Those who know, those who lose.
Those who look trough.
Do they get me?

I thought they get me like you,
Oh no!
Nobody.
Nobody.
Nobody.
No.
Oh no-one.

    General CommentOne lonely night Britt Daniel was up really late. He couldn't sleep. His mind was burdened and when he closed his eyes all his thoughts raced and they were bad ones, very bad ones. Somehow in a daze he wound up on the internet, this very site in fact! In a fit of guilt-fed egotism, he looked at the comments about songs he hswlf has written. He read them all! He became so dispondant that since then, he hasn't slept a night! But some good did come from this tragic tale. As the sun peeked above the horizon the next morning, he got Jim Eno on the horn. He told him about the horrors he'd seen. Before he hung up he said, "Dude. Nobody gets me. Nobody gets me but you.". And thus, this song was born.

    General CommentTurns out this song was inspired by Dabney Coleman. Nobody gets him but Britt.

    General CommentDon't we all have someone that seems to be the only person on the world that gets you completely?

    That's what makes this song so beautiful.
