"Rest of My Life" as written by and Jones/lewis/thompson....
There are worse ways for
A guy to spend his time
Than to sit and think of you
I think I'd marry you
Just your smile
Leaves me satisfied
Though you're not mine

So for the rest of my life
I'm gonna search
For someone just like you

And we tend the garden
All day long
Watching history unfold
And I'd be enough
And you'd be enough
And we'd grow old

So for the rest of my life
I'm gonna search
For someone just like you

For the rest of my life
I'm gonna search
For someone just like you

Yeah, for the rest of my life
I'm gonna search
For someone just like you

    General CommentNo, Blake isn't gay! He was dating Jenny for a while. It's possible that this song is about her, actually.

    At least I hope he isn't gay...otherwise my marrying him could be a little awkward.

    General CommentDude, any guy who knows and sings songs by Rilo Kiley automatically wins my heart. Musical taste is the number one thing I look for in a guy.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my friend David, cause he still loves his ex and he's always thinking of her .sometimes i bet he would lick the floor clean just so she can walk on it. Well this song explains the suckers life.

    General Commentto me, this song is about friends who are secretly in love but never let it go further than that. they are so much alike and would basically be perfect together in another time or place where both of them were free. so basically, jenny will, for the rest of her life, compare every man she meets to him, weighing them out to see if they can match up to him.
