Sometimes I wish that I was the weather
You’d bring me up in conversation forever
And when it rains
I’d be the talk of the day

Sometimes I wish that I was a cold beer
I’d rest assure that you would hold me near
I’d be guaranteed to be just what you’d need

And there could be no other way
‘Cause your so, your're so lame
Your tired words are all, there all the same
If I would walk, I’d surely walk away
If I wasn’t such a sucker for you

Sometimes I wish that I was a bong hit
You’d let me in and love every minute
And tell the room the things I did to you

And there could be no other way
‘Cause your so vain
Your tired words are all
Your tired words are all the same
If I would walk, you know I’d surely walk away
If I wasn’t such a sucker for you

I see your world with rosy colored glasses on
Wanna right when I see wrong
I could never have that power over you

Someday I’m gonna pack up and leave this town
I’m gonna get my own things going on
And when I do
I’ll forget, I’ll forget
I’ll forget about how
You’re so, You’re so vain
Your tired words are all
Your tired words are all the same
If I would walk, you know I’d walk away
If I wasn’t such a sucker for you
Wasn’t such a sucker for you
Wasn’t such a sucker for you

    General CommentI know exactly how that feels. Another great song by John Mayer (no surprise there). He's amazing. His lyrics are so well done, you can easily relate, which makes the song, aside from it's addictive sound, even more appealing.

    General CommentIt took me a whole week to learn this song on guitar, he is such a talented guitarist! It just sucks because his hands are huge and I can't reach that far.
    this song explained a situation I was going through with a girl perfectly, so I printed out the lyrics and gave them to her... the last thing I heard from her was that she loved John Mayer, and never to talk to her again... something like that- oh well!

    General Commenti can completely relate to this song. he's either in love or infatuated with someone, and he wishes that he could be all of these different things so he could be ANYTHING to her. she either doesn't treat him well or the feelings aren't mutual - "your tired words are all the same." he knows it's a bad situation, but he's such a "sucker" for her, so he can't "walk away." :)

    General CommentMan, I just heard one of his songs yesterday and since then I have been downloading all of them I can get. As soon as I get a chance, I am all over getting his CD. This guy is amazing. So sad I didn't discover him before he was on MTV :-( It doesn't matter. His simplicity amazes me, and even though when you think about it, he isn't much different in style from Dash or DMB, there is something about him that makes him so much better in my opinion. I'm hooked...
