  • I don't believe everything happens for a reason
    To us romantics out here, that amounts to high treason
    I don't go in for your star-crossed lovers
    In the heart of a skeptic
    There's a question that still hovers near

    For it begs the question, how
    Did I ever find you
    Now you got me writing love songs
    With a common refrain like this one here, baby

    And all your left handed kisses
    Were just prelude to another
    Prelude to your backhanded love song, baby

    But it begs a question
    How did I ever find you
    Drifting gently through the gyre
    Of the great Sargasso sea, Atlantic Ocean
    Got me writing love songs
    With a common refrain like this one here

    The point your song here misses
    Is that if you really loved me
    You'd risk more than a few 50 cent
    Words in your backhanded love song

    For it begs the question
    How did I ever find you
    Drifting gently through the gyre
    Of the great Sargasso sea, Atlantic Ocean, ooh ooh ooh

    The point your song here misses
    You got me writing love songs
    Is that you really love me
    With a common refrain like this one here, baby
    Is prelude to another of your backhanded love songs

    Now it's time for a handsome little bookend
    Now it's time to tie up all the loose ends
    Am I still a skeptic or did you make me a believer?
    If you hesitate, you'll hear the click of the receiver Writer/s: ANDREW WEGMAN BIRD
