"True Romantic" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Ray....
Baby, I've got the best intentions
I just can't do it
Baby, I've got the truest day
But I just can't win
Baby, I've got a good vibration
But I just can't play it
Baby, I spent my only fortune
On the wages of sin
But you, you gotta be extra forgiving
And you gotta be
Super strong
You gotta be
A true romantic
I want you to look the other way
Everything goes wrong
Baby, if you took all the good stuff and you put it all together
And you took all the bad stuff and you threw it all away
Would I still be the girl that suits your fancy
Would I still be the boy that rocks your world
I
If you get lonely
Trouble on the chaos
If you get bored
Since you walked away
Remember what I told you
When the night was darkest
You can leave me all you need to
Baby I'm here to stay
Baby, I'm gonna be extra forgiving
And I'm gonna be super strong
Cuz baby, I
I'm a true romantic
I'm gonna look the other way
When everything goes wrong
I

    Song MeaningI absolutely ADORE this song!

    I think it's about a woman who's just a bit messed up, and so she's telling her lover that she has to be strong, and is warning her that she has some issues. The chorus, though... The whole bit between "if you took all the good stuff... still be the boy who rocks your world"... I think she's basically saying "Yeah, I'm messed up, but would you still love me if I wasn't? That's part of who I am."

    The second verse, I think, is implying that the partner has issues, too. And the singer is saying that if her lover will stay by her through the bad times, she'll stay by her lover.

    Really a beautiful song!

    General Commentyeah i get that vibe that it is about 2 ppl with issues (like a few of us have lol) but they are sticking together as it works for them.
    "Baby, I've got the best intentions
    I just can't do it
    Baby, I've got the truest day
    But I just can't win
    Baby, I've got a good vibration
    But I just can't play it"
    that piece really speaks to me as i am goin thru depression and i have the ideas and vision to make my life better but just cant put them in to actions
