The day I first met you,
Well I thought it quite funny.
Your eyes were so damn blue,
Your smile was a drug, your style was money.

So what does it all mean
To find someone that makes you cry inside?
She's got the players on her team,
How could I smile when all she did was say Hi?

That one day when he is gone,
I'll get my chance to ask you out.
And then I'll show my colorful life
my colorful life

I'd like to be like you.
With a rep like yours my little honey.
I'm not sure what I can do.
Just know that I ain't no fuckin' dummy.

So what does it all mean?
To try so hard to get the right words out.
Well I wish I could come clean.
I'll give it my all, but I have my doubts.

That one day when he is gone
i'll get my chance to ask you out
and then i'll show my colorful life

That one day when he is gone
i'll get my chance to ask you out
then one day when he is gone
i'll get my chance to ask you out
then one day when he is gone
i'll get my chance to ask you out
and then i'll show
my colorful life
my colorful life
my colorful life

    General CommentBasically, this is just a fun, punk-rock song about having a crush on someone who's taken, and wondering why you feel the way you do and what could happen if you acted on it.
    Yes, the name of the group was changed to Jonny Was... and the website is now jonnywas.com. You can find lots of pics and info there.
    The only other songs I've heard are Motel 666, Lie (which could be called Sunny Day, I'm not sure), and Soundproof. There's also one called Close To Home. Shane West is the main singer & guitarist, Ben is the backup singer & bassist, and Jerry, yes, they have a ben & a jerry :), is the drummer.
    If you're lucky enough to live in California, they do quite a few shows there, like in Hollywood at the Roxy.
