"You Wouldn't Believe" as written by and Nicholas Hexum Douglas Martinez....
He was a king 'til she laid waste
Now he can not fill up the space
And I just see him drifting, while he's drifting On Bourbon Alley, feeling low
Just because she let him go
I don't think he even knows
He'll ever be fine

[Chorus]
And he's got a head full of ideas, let me tell ya
That you wouldn't believe
And he's got a heart made of pure gold
And something else, so many tricks up his sleeve
You might think he's a jester because he'll
Make you laugh â??til you cry
And what else, you better come with your best if you test him
Unless you're ready to die

Wonder woman got rid of wonder man
That man's not part of her wonder plan
Letter to the so called, better bet on my man
Believe it you will find out, baby, damn

[Chorus]

A million people come and go
Through a person's ebb and flow
And faces keep on changing, while they're changing
A certain few will stay intact
When they're not, they'll don an act
I know this important fact
Don't get confused like

[Chorus]

First you love him, then you're loving him not
All the while, he just smiles, giving all that he's got
Do you find it in your heart to say he's not what you sought?
Do you want me to continue with this, or what?

Whoa, yeah, whoa, yeah
Head full of ideas, let me tell ya
That you wouldn't believe
And he's got a heart made of pure gold
And something else, so many tricks up his sleeve Sleeve, sleeve

    General CommentThis is a great song, possibly thier best type of upbeat kinda song since down. Now they've had some better chillin music such as use of time, but this is their best upbeat get in the car and put the windows down and drive fast kinda song.

    General Commentsome of the parts of the chorus remind me and a friend of our friend who died.. he was an awesome guy who could make us laugh until we cried. and we miss him a lot.. i know that's totally not what this song is about, but any time we need to think of him, we listen to it...

    General Commentthis song rules. it's the perfect blend of ska and rock that makes 311 kick the shit out of everyone else. From Chaos is a sick album, i reccomend it highly.

    General CommentYea, this is about a guy who gets dumped. He's gotta move on. He's got a good heart. He doesn't need this chick. This song definately kicks ass. The lyrics are good, but the music is REALLY good.
