Once there was a girl that came from not too far from here
And she wasn't satisfied at the rate that she applied herself
To the items on the shelf, she was a retail girl

And that really has to do with nothing though she gave me something
A smile I'll rely on for a lifetime I'd try on for awhile

So now why is she getting married on the 25th of april
She believes in higher energy and better things for all the people
She is a charm of good luck when she's sitting by your side
But I think my luck run out on april twenty five

Oh love, oh love is all I'm looking for
Sitting in the corner in the dark
Hoping that she'd eye me, I'm looking right her way
But I'd never find the right thing to say
I'd never find the right kind of phrase

There was a secret somebody
Of course I never get the upper hand
Those kinds of rare finds are all born with a man
I just don't understand how they can

Oh love, oh love is all I'm looking for
Sitting in the corner in the dark and on the floor
Hoping that she'd spy on me, I'm looking right her way
I'd never find the right kind of phrase

The right kind, the right line, or the right time to say almost anything that's right
the right kind of phrase.
I'd never find the right thing to say

    General Commenthe was gambling in a casino- the 25th of April to be more exact, and was on a winning streak. And sitting beside him just happened to be this bride-to-be having her hen night with some girlfriends, whom Jason thinks looks gorgeous (as all brides-to-be) are and whom he thinks is his lucky charm.

    Of course, he can't hit on her. So he writes a song about it instead :)

    General Commenthe liked this girl
    he was too scared to tell her
    he lost his chance
    when he finds out that she's getting married

    General CommentAh unrequited love. He was never able to find the courage, or the right thing to say in order to articulate his feelings. "Those kinds of rare finds are all born with a man" Such a good line J-dawg.
