well I fumbled for a pencil and my I'm so sorry pad
and I wrote until I sprained my stupid brain
well you know that there's a reason why I made this up so fast
I thought I'd never get a chance to say
what's on my mind, I'm never kind
when my vocabulary's secondary to a bottle of
wine

but I promise I can love you
just like a man
and I promise I can hold you
like nobody can

I never knew the difference between bullshit and sincere
as long as it sounded good while coming out
and I can't blame it on my father, he gave me my first beer
and he held my head back as I puked it out
what was I saying, there I go playing

the game I know so well
talking about myself when it should be you

but I promise I can love you
just like a man
and I promise I can hold you
like nobody can

    General CommentThis song is amazing, I can't believe nobody has commented on this. The whole first verse is amazing..

    Well I fumbled for a pencil
    And my I'm-so-sorry pad
    And I wrote until I sprained my stupid brain
    And I know that there's a reason
    I made this up so fast
    I thought I'd never get a chance to say
    What's on my mind...


    Brilliant
