"Busted Stuff"

Not enough
Never too much
Woman looked just like love
Rolling stone
Gathers no moss
But leaves a trail of Busted Stuff

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's given up
Yeah

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
I take what she's given up
Yeah

Sweet, sugar lips
Pushed from the hips
You know you look just like love
Without a care, she floats above
She got me down here looking up

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's given up
Yeah

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
Yeah, yeah...

She the one, she the one, she the one for me...

When she moves, she moves so cool
She got me feeling like a fool
But inside is where the devil hides
The woman look just like love

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's given up
Yeah

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's given up
Yeah

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
Yeah, yeah...

She the one, she the one, she the one for me...

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
Yeah, yeah

You're the one, you're the one, you're the one for me...

    General Commentthis song is too easy...its about a guy who is totally infatuated with a woman ...however she doesnt seem to care and they both realize this and the pain that he will feel when she leaves him is worth it because of the pleasue he gets from being with her.

    General Commentthis is a simple song, but written perfectly. i just had to break up with my girlfriend because she wanted to date an "additional" guy... and this song really really connected with me. i love it. i love it when a song talks about something that happens to people every day. Dave Matthews is awesome... thanks for the lyrics.

    General CommentHas been explained fully by everyone here, don't disagree with anyone, but:

    'But inside is where the devil hides ' is interesting. I think Dave knows that there is more to her, but is really close to being completely blinded by her beauty, the magnetism she has.
