I got your picture
I'm coming with you
Dear Maria, count me in
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle
And I'm the pen

When the lights go up
I wanna watch the way you
Take the stage by storm
The way you wrap those boys around your finger
Go on and play the leader
'Cause you know it's what you're good at
The low road for the fast track
Make every second last

'Cause I got your picture
I'm coming with you
Dear Maria, count me in
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle
And I'm the pen
Make it count when I'm the one
Who's selling you out
'Cause it feels like stealing hearts
Calling your name from the crowd

Live and let live
You'll be the show girl of the home team
I'll be the narrator
Telling another tale of the American dream

I see your name in lights
We can make you a star
Girl, we'll take the world by storm
It isn't that hard...

'Cause I got your picture
I'm coming with you
Dear Maria, count me in
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle
And I'm the pen
Make it count when I'm the one
Who's selling you out
'Cause it feels like stealing hearts
Calling your name from the crowd
Whoa...

Ha ha...

Take a breath, don't it sound so easy
Never had a doubt
Now I'm going crazy
Watching from the floor
Take a breath and let the rest come easy
Never settle down
'Cause the cash flow leaves
Me always wanting more

'Cause I got your picture
I'm coming with you
Dear Maria, count me in
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle
And I'm the pen
Make it count when I'm the one
Who's selling you out
'Cause it feels like stealing hearts
Calling your name from the crowd

'Cause I got your picture
I'm coming with you
Dear Maria, count me in
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle

    He said that one of his friends became a stripper and he thought it was hilarious and then he made it into a story of how he could sorta make her into more like a pin-up girl [star]
    he may have said many meanings. That's how stars are. Lol.

    This song was written by Alex about a girl he knew named Maria who was secretly a stripper and she told him and he thought it was freakin' awesome. Sooo here we are today with the song "Dear Maria, Count me In". I wonder what people think of her now?
