"Love Song" as written by and John Ondrasik....
Put away your tears and your sleepy eyes
Put away that bullshit, big boys they don't cry to their mommas
she'll be back soon
Put away your raincoat and make your bed
Take another bullet right to your head
Now, we're going on a picnic and we'll get there soon

And she says, maybe it's over
He says, there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say, don't go away from me

Now put away your dinner and have a snack
Tie your little brother up in a sack now
We're moving to the country and we'll get there soon (she says)

Now, pack up all the things that you don't deserve
Take another swing, well here comes a curve ball
I bet you can't hit it 'cause you'll swing to soon

And she says, maybe it's over
He says, there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say, don't go away, don't go away
Please don't go away, from me
But can you take it to hard
I'll never leave you

Take those damn pictures off of that shelf
Put away your mommy you don't need her
I found you a new one, she'll be here soon

And she says, my God it's over,
He says, I found another fish in the sea
I say, why me?
Why me?
Why me?
Why is it me?

    General CommentI like this song, I think its kinda sad though, because I remember reading somewhere that its about divorce from the child's point of view.

    General CommentThis song has a lot of emotion and meaning to me. My parents divorced and I felt a lot of these feelings. John (singer and writer) told me it is a song he doesn't like to sing often because it is so sad

    General CommentI agree with what everyone has said above me, and I remember the first time I ever heard this song I thought how sad it was. But it has quite a good effect on me personally. I've recently been through alot of bad relationships, and I found myself often bottling it all up inside me. And the last time I was down in the dumps after being dumped yet again, I was listening to this song, and all of a sudden I felt alot better. Because I think it's quite amazing to me that a child, who goes through something as profoundly disturbing as a divorce, can talk about it so openly. So I think the song has a little bit of hope, because despite the divorce, the child seems to understand, and he still has the mother.
