Veronica Sawyer Smokes Lyrics

Oh my story is not the oldest of it's kind.

    Heres what I get out of the song. Its the story of a young man who falls in love at first sight with a girl. In his head he rehearses what he's going to say to her, but when he decides to talk to her, the whole thing goes completely different from what he saw ("you strayed far from my flawless script on which i'd spent a lifetime"). She rejects his feelings, and he is hurt. Its really a sad song despite its Upbeat tone, but I think the tone reflects more of how he felt about her than the feelings he felt after being rejected.

    I remember this from TV. It's about rejection and the pain it causes others.
