I've spent my life waiting
For that famous final scene
I believe you know the one--
When she falls in love with me

As for you, you've been fakin' your smile
Fillin' your time
On small talk
And cheap wine
Knowing in your heart there was someplace
That you'd rather be

So right or wrong,
I wrote you this song
To tell you how I feel

Don't put up no fight
You just turn off the lights
Walk over here to me

Chorus:
And lay your body down on me
Down on me tonight, oh yeah
Oh, let your tears fall down on me
Down on me tonight, oh yeah

As for me I've lied to, denied to
Fight with, and tried to
Apologize for all my ways
To all the women who were fool enough to fall
In love with me

You played your role
Like a movie
Got your lines for who is,
Who was, who would be
Somehow you lost track
While real love slipped away, yeah

So for tonight, just turn off the lights
And let those real feelings show
There's no wrong or right
But until you try
You're never gonna know

Chorus

Before you was mine
I was so lonely
Ain't it a shame
Your heart must feel pain
Before you get back on your feet again

Solo

So let's draw the blinds
Forget wasted time
And let them old demons die
Take ahold of my hand
Then you'd understand
Why love's worth one more try

Chorus out

    Why waste your time when you could making time with me. Why would you rather be drunk than do the right thing, and lay your body down on me the way it should.

    Let me make you feel better than he will ever do. Why are you there with him if you can be here with me.
