"Pretty Girl from Michigan" as written by and Scott Avett Bob Crawford....
Can you not see what you've done?
You gave your heart away like that.
I didn't want to fall in love with anyone, but you did.
I can still hear the song,
The melody behind the kiss you gave me.
You were wrong, I was right so I walked away,
And left you there, alone
I got so tired of talkin' on the telephone,
How many times would we say the words goodbye

I made mistakes, and one was telling you that I'd be there,
When telling time had come,
I should've said I didn't care.
Oh, the time I would have saved,
If I had been less willing to accommodate,
You'd been a little less likely to cry.

You go back to the high life,
And I'll go back to the low.
I should've known, but now I know

There'll be no word from you,
Describing how it felt to go through what I put you through.
It all makes perfect sense.
The way you cut the rope,
That kept you dangling from such pitiful amounts of hope
I would have cut it too.

    My InterpretationRather sad song. Pretty Girl is in love with a person who just doesn't care enough to treat her right, and he knows it...

    My InterpretationThis song sounds like a message to a specific "pretty girl" that a band member hooked up with after a show, presumably in Michigan, who didn't realize that they were not going to be dating or anything serious afterwards. It made me wonder if all the other Pretty Girl songs were like that, and upon hearing them, I can pretty safely say that if you hook up with one of them after a show and act really clingy, you might just get a song written about you. Don't get me wrong, I like that band, but damn, that's cold blooded to break a girl's heart then write a song about how needy and wrong she was.
