If I said
I love you
I donít think it would be untrue
I met you
Youíve made my life feel so brand new
The long talks
These are the moments I cherish
Fueled the spark
And lit the heavens up with it
To your eyes
And my heart gets thrown off-beat
My feelings for you overwhelm me
Wish I knew
I would have cancelled my lonely trip
When Iím with you, I feel safe
about Lonely Hearts
first glance (and maybe even second and third), this
song may strike you as a love song.
But itís not!
What it is really about is having a lot of love
for someoneÖ a friend.
Every guy out there that has found that Joey
Potter (that girl from ďDawsonís CreekĒ) of his
life should be able to relate.
The parts about my heart skipping
beats and all that good stuff, I was trying to capture
the way I feel about her.
Sometimes I feel like me finding someone like her
who really understands me, and us being as close as we
are is just too good to be true.
It makes me so happy, my emotions overwhelm me.
The song is titled Lonely
may sound like a strange title for a song like this, but
I titled it that cuz:
Itís a cool title, and
It emphasizes the fact that, separated, we have
lonely hearts. And
itís that loneliness in our hearts that makes this friendship so cherished, and
brings us so close together.
At least for me anyway.
I started writing this song on
April 7, 2000, and completed it two days later.
It was a really easy song to write because I
basically wrote down whatever lines came to my mind.
Sometimes when writing a song, I get scared to
rush and write lines down because I want to make sure
that they are the best lines I can think of.
But writing this song made me realize that itís
better to just write down whatever comes to mind, and if
there ends up being anything that doesnít sound that
good, I could always revise it later.
That way, I donít end up frustrated, thinking
too hard and giving myself writerís block, when I
should really be relaxed and just concentrating on
