"Our Song" as written by and Dave Richard/thomas Bassett....
Be kind when you rewind the story of the two of us
Sometimes you wish it was a little more mysterious
When you look at me with your cinematic eyes
I wanna play the part but I forget the lines

I do it all the time
I never get it right

One day when you replay the slide show we know
Pictures won't show villains and heroes
It's just me keeping time with you
Butter knife dull but it still cuts through

We never were
We'll never be

Strangers kissing in the pouring rain
Chasing after your leaving train
But we know that's not how our song goes
Oh
You're a waitress in a cocktail bar
And I'll save you cause I'm a big rock star
But we know that's not how our song goes
It goes like this

You didn't like my friends and your mom didn't trust me
I thought I was slick but my moves were rusty
Bought you a 12 pack promised you sushi
Sorry if I wasn't straight out of a movie

We never were
We'll never be

Strangers kissing in the pouring rain
Chasing after your leaving train
But we know that's not how our song goes
Oh
You're a waitress in a cocktail bar
And I'll save you cause I'm a big rock star
But we know that's not how our song goes
It

Be kind when you rewind the story of the two of us
Sometimes you wish it was a little more mysterious
When you look at me with your cinematic eyes
I wanna play the part but I'm messing up the lines

We never were
We'll never be

Strangers kissing in the pouring rain
Chasing after your leaving train
But we know that's not how our song goes
Oh
You're a waitress in a cocktail bar
And I'll save you cause I'm a big rock star
But we know that's not how our song goes
It goes like this
It goes like this

    General CommentI totally agree. It's catchy too. I have it atuck in my head all the time, but it's not annoying or anything. I love listening to it and rocking the f*** out like an idiot sometimes to it. :P The chorus is especially great, in my opinion.

    My InterpretationYeah, good song. Love isn't usually like the movies, but they seem pretty okay with that. It just won't get out of my head.

    General CommentThis song is so much fun, I love it! It's about how she wants their relationship to be like the movies and he wishes he could do that for her but he can't. That's just not who they are but I don't think he minds too much. =]
