So much of my life gone by in a flash
I turn away and 6 months have come and gone
Yet somehow I canít help but feel Iím standing in place
I donít remember October ever being this long
Guitars, movies, my cdís, all my music magazines
They make easier but they donít make it right
So I sit in this room a block from the Hotel
Wish you were here on this cold October night

I know I should be asleep now
But Iím so wound up I donít even try
Another late night out in the bars
Though Iím not really a party guy
Shot of whiskey, rum and coke as you laugh at another joke
You make a heart stop and race at the same time
I love the way you touch your chest when you laugh
You know somehow I just canít get you out of my mind

Itís been so long since Iíve had something to say
But Whenever youíre around, I just canít seem to look away

Donít you know how you light up my nights?
Somehow you donít know how wonderful you are
And I just canít take another day
Falling for you from afar
And all the words they escape me, somehow I gotta make you see
Before you turn and walk the other way
BNL and LBC say all of my words for me
They tell you what I could never say

Two months now since the first time I saw your face
Every time I try to talk I always get it wrong
We stand and laugh as I turn into a child
Iíd swear your laughing at me if I werenít laughing along
I wanna open up and share my heart with you
Donít wanna scare you off but I just canít let you go
But you just donít realize what you are
And how youíve changed my life youíll probably never know

I never believed in happiness, but Iím starting to come around
Amazing how just one smile can turn your whole life upside down

Donít you know how you light up my nights?
Somehow you donít know how wonderful you are
And I just canít take another day
Falling for you from afar
And all the words they escape me, somehow I gotta make you see
Before you turn and walk the other way
Goo Goo Dolls and old Bon Jovi say all of my words for me
They tell you what I could never say

I canít write a love song, I can only speak my mind
I think that you can be the one to help me leave it all behind

Donít you know how you light up my nights?
Somehow you donít know how wonderful you are
And I just canít take another day
Falling for you from afar
And all the words they escape me, somehow I gotta make you see
Before you turn and walk the other way
Everclear and old BoDeans say all of my words for me
They tell you what I could never say

Donít you know how you light up my nights?
Somehow you donít know how wonderful you are
And I just canít take another day
Falling for you from afar
And all the words they escape me, somehow I gotta make you see
Before you turn and walk the other way
Josh Holmes and Matchbox Twenty say all of my words for me
They tell you what I could never say

Still care?
I don't know if you're going to come back here and read this at al, but I am very confused by your comment. Saying you still care indicates that you once cared. I believe that you are one of 3 women from my past that I have in some way or another shut out of my life for good reason. And you should know that when I have something to say, I haev the decency to put my name by it.

Yes I am seeing someone now. Yes I am nuts about her. If you wish me well, that's great. If we've talked about her, then you owe me an apology for what you said. If you haven't talked to me since my gigs at the locker room, you owe me an apology for treated me like a leper because I said I don't believe in non-monogamous sexual relationships. If you haven't talked to me since last summer, then you owe me an apology for letting your friends walk all over me in your name and accussing me of things I didn't do. I did some pretty shitty things in my life, and I own up to most of them. I don't need someone making assumptions about me and making up facts to back them up to try to get me to confess to stuff I didn't do. Once in my life was enough for that.

Leave your name, don't leave your name, I'll get over it either way. Just know that I am happy with my new person, hapier than I eve was with you, whoever yuo may be, and it's cowardly to try to pretend you still care but not enough to put your name by your words.

re:comment
I was just reading your song and i thought you would appreciate the comment. I am glad you have got on with your life. I will never apologize to you for anything, i did no wrong, i never did wrong. i just hope you treat her better then you did to me for i still carry alot with me.

I know
I know I did some pretty shitty things to you. And I have been open with my new girlfriend about them. If I could change how I treated you, I would. But I did not do the things your friend accused me of and I still think it was wrong of you to drag someone I didn't trust into our issues when I told you I would wait as long as I knew you were coming for your things eventually. I do appreciate the comment and I hope you have a nice life with your new boyfriend just as I am having a nice life with my new girlfriend. (And if you don't haev a new boyfriend, then someone hacked into you e-mail again and cussed me out under your name, just so you know.)

I am sorry for all you went through because of me. I am sorry for all the tears. I am sorry for all of the pain. To this day I blame myself for the fact that you are smoking just as much as you did when you quit. I am owning up to my mistakes.

Don't pretend you didn't make any.

I will now kinda ask you not to comment on my songs again. If you want to talk to me, you know my e-mail address. If you don't, then you probably aren't who you are pretending to be. Either way, I hope you have a nice life, but I just can't be a part of it.
