So I'm down here like you wanted
Why am I not sleeping in your bed
It's 3 o' clock in the morning
Are you all over me again
You're the one I can't figure out
But the one I can't forget
You got me worked up and locked out I gotta stop, messin with you messin with my head

Jessica, I can't solve this equation
And it's tearing me apart
Jessica, game's not worth playin

If you don't finish what you start
Starting over without you
You'd be the first thing in my past
We'd sleep alone
I won't call you on the phone
But we know that won't last

Jessica, I can't solve this equation
And it's tearing me apart
Jessica, game's not worth playin

If you don't finish what you start
It's the hardest thing to let you go
But I'm leaving tonight
It was good for me was it good for you?
Goodbye

    General CommentGreat song! He is going to be huge, just like John Mayer! And the few of us who have heard of this star can brag that we knew of him before he was all over MTV. haha :)

    General CommentYep. grahamcolton.com, if you want to find out some more about them.

    Their style is very John Mayer/Pete Yorn-ish.

    General CommentWow!! I love this song!
    My friend told me to DL it, because my name is Jessica. So I'm like cool! Then I listened to it, and I'm like, OMG. This song is like, my anthem. Sadly, it's like it was written for me. Expecially the
    "Jessica, game's not worth playin If you don't finish what you start "
    It must be a Jessica thing...
    Anyways, I am lucky enough to catch them opening for John Mayer and Counting Crows Aug2, in MI... It's the last show Colton is going to do for awhile, and I soooo Lucked out. No one really knows who he is, but I've been into him for like a year. I love him. I can't wait, I'm so excited!

    General Commenthe took my hand and placed it on his heart.
    boom boom boom boom
    "why is it beating so fast?"
    "because im in love"


    he made me a movie, confessing his love to me. it was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me. this was the background song.

    ironically i never saw the movie until things were over between us. i first saw it at his friends house, only minutes from his. it was around 3 in the morning, while he was sleeping with his girlfriend.

    "so i'm down here like you wanted. why am i not sleeping in your bed? it's 3 oclock in the morning. are you all over me again?"


    his new relationship will not last. the last 3 years he always begs me back after they turn to shit. i hate that i always give in to him. it hurts more than anything.

    "starting over without you. you'd be the first thing in my past. we'd sleep alone. i won't call you on the phone, but we know that won't last"

    they've been together for five months now. every day i get my phone out to dial his number and say all the words that need to be said. but everyday i can't bring myself to do it. of course i could easily break them up. but i'm not that person. i won't be. when they break up it has to be because they genuinlly don't want to be together.

    he still says he has feelings for me. he says its in his deepest interest for me to be happy. that he doesnt want me to wait around for him. im living proof of that.


    this song describes our situation. perfectly. the sad irony is that it describes someone being ripped apart again and again. and i know this, yet i still keep going back.
    love does that to people.
