"Love Song For No One" as written by John Mayer and Clay Cook....
Staying home alone on a Friday
Flat on the floor looking back
On old love
Or lack thereof
After all the crushes are faded
And all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here

Searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?
Oh no way

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here oh yeah

You'll be so good
You'll be so good for me

    General CommentI used to use this as an away message every Friday night. This was the song that first got me hooked on John Mayer. I still like the live version the best, especially because of what John says in the beginning. " This is a song about talking to the person you haven't even met yet. Mayber they're rolling around in the hay with someone else but they're not as good as you'll be. You just gotta wait your turn. He's out there, she's out there, they're just learning what to contrast you against." Amen to that John, amen to that.

    General CommentI think this maybe the greatest song I've ever heard (lyrically). It makes me think of one person in particular that I'd really like to start a relationship with but never could think of how to go about asking her out. She works at the same company, so It's hard to say something, but I pass her in the hallway all the time.

    General CommentWow, wow, wow! This song gives me hope that there is someone out there for me. All of my friends have basically ditched me for these guys they are CONVINCED they will marry. And the 2 boyfriends I had ditched me for their friends. (Kind of ironic, huh?) And I like this song, it makes me sure that he will fall into my life someday...
