LYRICS

Well, I don’t need to say you’re beautiful
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who looks
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
You can’t believe everything you read in books

You always complain I never wrote a song for you in really direct language
Well, here it goes, I hope you like it
You came and robbed me from the life I always saw myself living
Well, I ain’t complaining, I just want you to recognize what I’ve done
Just to be with you I picked up my whole life and moved across the water
It’s very fashionable to refer to it as a pond, but it’s really a big fuckin’ ocean

Well, I don’t need to say you’re cool as hell
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who talks to you
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
I’ve got a dozen different lives going on in my head all at once

It was never my intention to sit down and write a list of my favorite things about you,
but here’s just one… I never met anyone I could trust so much, I really trust you
You just might be the only person I’ve ever loved in my whole life
That didn’t disappoint me at least one time
‘Cause I saw it all from the start, and I took the good with the bad
And I don’t need to say you’re beautiful
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who looks
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
You can’t believe everything you read in books

Well, I might have some dreams sometimes
about the other lives I always saw myself living,
but I can’t help it, no, I can’t help it, I can’t, I can’t…
