about

OK, I couldn't resist. This is a tongue in cheek look at relationships. What guy hasn't left the seat up? Or tracked dirt on the rug? Or left their shoes somewhere they shouldn't have? I have been house broken, so I don't leave the seat up or leave my shoes lying around, but I have been known to track in dirt. I came up with the guitar part while jamming to a drum track, and it just sort of had a vibe I liked. This song is not a true story! It's just a silly, somewhat funny song. I had to end the CD with something silly and funny after writing "20 Dollars," the most depressing thing I've ever written.

lyrics

I know that I could
give up alcohol
At least I'm pretty sure I could
And I could go forever
without my TV
...It'd probly do me good
I know that I could surely
give up vacuuming
I could do that with no regret
And I could give up all those
men's magazines
because I've got the Internet

Do I really need to mention
That I've got these good intentions
And I'm willing to work harder
So that I can earn your love
Baby you're the only reason that I even want to be here
And I could give up anything, it's true
But I could never, ever give up you

You're looking at me like I've lost my mind
You say "I've heard this all before"
You say I leave the seat up, track in dirt and put my feet up
leave shoes in the middle of the floor
You tell me other stuff, but I'm not listening
I think you're pretty when you're mad
Maybe what I'm offering is
really not the type of thing you
want from me but babe it's not too bad,

And I really need to mention
That I've got these good intentions
And I'm willing to work harder
So that I can earn your love
Baby you're the only reason that I even want to be here
I could give up anything, it's true
But I could never, ever give up you
