Great Romances of the 20th Century Lyrics
A beautiful girl can make you dizzy,
Like you've been drinking jack and coke all morning.
She can make you feel high,
Full of the single greatest commodity known to man:
Promise. promise of a better day,
promise of a greater...

Yessum, it's so not cute and sweeta to all. He's totally in love with this girl and he knows she doesn't feels the same but he loves her so much it doesn't matter.
Even when she makes up excuses to him he doecnt care because he adores the way she does it even if it actually kills him inside that she's brshing him off. He manages to cope as a lot of us do by living in denial, saying tomorrow is another day and none of her lies will matter then...but we all know they will and deep down so does he.he can't sleep at night because he's so in awe of this girl and to comfort himself about her lies he's reminds himself that he's managed to deal with worse things from her them this before.thats suppose to be comforting but I can't seem how it would actually help. In the end neither can he and he being to lose his patience with her and he's basically begging her to be honest or he's gonna leave which he doesn't want to do because he's so in love with her.
I don't quite get this part. It would fit with the orgasm theory, but I think there could be more to it.Help?

I never said I'd take this lying down" means hes submitting to her. "i've crawled home from worse than this" is him swallowing his pride after he lets her use him as a sexy toy. He's either okay with it or being sarcastic in the end. But clearly this is a case of She gets hers and he doesn't get his.
"You always come close but this never comes easy
You always come close but you never come easy
You always come... you come in close"
total jizz factor right there.
plus he wants more of a romantic relationship rather than sexual. "If it's not keeping you up nights
then what’s the point "
He's still totally gonna give it to her tho.

Can anyone e-mail me the mp3 of the version of this song with the spoken word intro? I only have the newer tell all your friends version...i really want to hear the spoken part though! If you like old TBS then check out www.oldtakingbacksunday.com great site
I think it's about fake orgasms. But not just in a sexual way. like she's faking it in bed and in life. He loves her, and he's doing everything he can to make her happy, and she pretends, but she doesn't mean it and he knows it.
so it's pretty much the opposite of being cute and sweet..it's depressing, sad, and a little funny. poor guy.
It's not that cute.. It's kind of sad actually.
Basically he just loves everything about her; even though she hurts him a lot.
"I just love the way you roll; excuses off the tip of your tongue."
And it obviously matters a lot more to him than to her ..
"This won't mean a thing tomorrow"
But he's getting tired of her.
"I'm running out of sympathies."
