Rebounder

from by The Good

lyrics

He loved you from the day I met you,
But you loved me so what was he to do?
Hang around and hope he'd get his yet.
You can't have too many friends.

Broad shoulders, perfect to cry on.
I gave you a reason to cry.
But you're not teary anymore.
Now I know why.

Right place. Right time. Right after I found her.
He stayed. She'd trade me for the rebounder.

Loved you from the day I met you.
Hung around and hoped he'd get you.
Gave you reasons, I upset you.

He serenades you with his guitar,
Plucking heartstrings I can't pull.
So I write songs I hope get me far.
Where is that, anyway?

I put you in the window.
He was bound to see.
But I never thought the day would come when
You liked him more'n me.

Right place. Right time. Right after he found her
In pieces, he plays song of the rebounder.

Serenades you with his guitar.
I write songs that won't get me far.
He don't know what you and we are.

Boxed me out. He's got position. He's a missionary.
Call a foul, offensive rebound. Quick, before they marry.

Wrong chase. Wrong line. Wrong after I left her.
Too late. New mate. His song sounded better.
Hm.
