"Oh!" as written by and Eric Hutchinson....
I got arrested in the dark of the night
The cop got restless as he read me my rights
He told me, "I'm always envious of those that I jail
If I got locked up nobody come to help me post bail"
And I said "oh!"

Went to a party on the side of a hill
Met three Latinas who had gotten their fill.
They told me "nobody ever gets us down on our knees
Simply to help us take a load off our feet."
And I said "oh!"

And I'm never sure what I'm living for but it's always on my mind
Someone comes along always proves me wrong think im gonna be fine

I picked a pocket just to give it all back
Took out the license left the money in tact
The man said "I wanna thank you" and I had to ask why
"That was the old me I was living a lie"
And I said "oh!"

Riding the subway with the scent of her hair
She took out a toothbrush started using it there
She explained "I'm always sure today's the day I will die
I wanna look good if I get to look god in the eye"
And I said "oh!"

And I'm never sure what I'm living for but it's always on my mind
Someone comes along always proves me wrong think im gonna be fine

We get lost in the back of our minds
Got nothing to burn but time time time
Everybody's got the love but they keep it inside

Met an acquaintance we were reintroduced
With more in common than we had in our youth
She told me "you look the same" I said "I'm now a new man"
She asked me "how does that work" "I started giving a damn"
And I said "oh!"

    My OpinionI agree with you guys. I love how he tells these stories and they make you think.

    I feel like when he was writing these songs, he had just gone through a lot of changes in his life and started thinking in new ways.

    He's like the narrator of the story, and he's seeing all these different people who he finds out actually are hurting or have issues of their own, and he shows that everyone has a unique story of their own. And sometimes people just want to be listened to or cared about. And he ends the song with his own story, about how he's changed and he's now a new man. Love it.
