I'm picking up the phone and putting down this pen
To let you know I'm writing you again
But it's not the same the names have all changed
And my best friend and ex girlfriend aren't to blame
I did this myself it's a sick cry for help
But it doesn't mean the situation's clean
Additional stress that will come from the press
The mess I made putting my life on parade
Now the writers can say "we were right all along
You can't make someone love you with your songs"

And you don't know me
But you owe me
A little time to find some piece of mind
And when you hold me
I'm not so lonely
It will be difficult to leave this life behind

My sister always said that hardships come in two's
A funeral and break up afternoon
There is really no good time for anyone to leave
In a couple weeks I'll get my chance to grieve
And hopefully by then my mind will be all clear
And I can cry for the reasons that I'm there
Not for the all things that are happening at home
The church was filled but I was still alone
But this is not a ploy to gain some sympathy
I made this bed and now it's time to sleep

And you don't know me
But you owe me
A little time to find some piece of mind
And when you hold me
I'm not so lonely
It will be difficult to leave this life behind

Its such a shame that the blame has somehow shifted to you
We're both aware through the years that I've been messed up too
And I shouldn't talk I should stop I'm digging deeper holes
It just feels strange that I sing songs for another girl

    General Commentwhy hasn't anyone commented on this song?! it kicks some freakin ass. i think it is about the singer's actual life. either that or he is really good at making up a story about a break up and that place in your heart you will have for the person you use to love, even though you are with someone new. but i don't really know that much... also. are the lyrics correct? i think it might be "you can't make someone love you with A SONG" and "but you OWN me." or maybe i'm off base. idk. yay her space holiday and this song!

    General CommentIn the cd booklet it says "you cant make someone love you with your songs" and "but you owe me"

    I'm pretty sure that he says "you cant make someone love you with a song" though.

    General Commentman...I cannot imagine what it would feel like if my girlfriend and my best friend got together. it would be like this song, though.
    and even when you try to move on...just ouch.

    General CommentI heard this song over a year ago on an internet radio station but I could never find any songs by him. I forgot about them until tonight.

    Cool song, glad I remembered.
