I don't mind you coming here
And wasting all my time
'cause when you're standing oh so near
I kinda lose my mind
It's not the perfume that you wear
It's not the ribbons in your hair
I don't mind you coming here
And wasting all my time
I don't mind you hanging out
And talking in your sleep
It doesn't matter where you've been
As long as it was deep
You always knew to wear it well
You look so fancy I can tell
I don't mind you hanging out
And talking in your sleep
I guess you're just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess you're just what I needed
I needed someone to bleed

    General Comment:Doesn't anyone think this song is about nothing more than "friends with benefits?"

    I don't think it's a "love" song at all.

    General Comment:This song is about this guy liking this girl just for who she is, and he doesn't mind being aroud her and "wasting all his time" because he enjoys the time that he's wasting.

    General Comment:this is me and me ex's song and i still love it. i remember when we first started dating for the second time (rough start the first time) we were sitting on his couch and this song came on and he was like, "oh my god everytime i have heard this song for the last year i think about you and i miss you like crazy!" then he sang it to me. it still makes me feel all giddy. that's insane. but it is definately a kick ass love song

    General Comment:these guys are great, this song is proof that if you want to be in a good energetic mood, the cars, are "just what I needed" also, it is a great song for driving, especially on the way to or from a date
