Who Says

Album: Battle Studies (2009)
Charted: 17
  • Who says I can't get stoned
    Turn off the lights and the telephone
    Me in my house alone
    Who says I can't get stoned

    Who says I can't be free
    From all of the things that I used to be
    Rewrite my history
    Who says I can't be free

    It's been a long night in New York city
    It's been a long night in Baton Rouge
    I don't remember you looking any better
    But then again I don't remember you

    Who says I can't get stoned
    Call up a girl that I used to know
    Fake love for an hour or so
    Who says I can't get stoned

    Who says I can't take time
    Meet all the girls in the county line
    Wait on fate to send a sign
    Who says I can't take time

    It's been a long night in New York city
    It's been a long night in Austin too
    I don't remember you looking any better
    But then again I don't remember you

    Who says I can't get stoned
    Plan a trip to Japan alone
    Doesn't matter if I even go
    Who says I can't get stoned

    It's been a long night in New York city
    It's been a long time since 22
    I don't remember you looking any better
    But then again I don't remember, don't remember you Writer/s: John Mayer

  • Dustin from Whitehouse, TxWith all the "it's not about weed" talk out of the way... is there anyone out there who really thinks John Mayer doesn't smoke weed. I'd bet my last paycheck that he blazes pretty often, actually.
  • Kelly from Grand Rapids, MiThis song is beatiful. He's explaing that need to withdraw from life and just relax. It's not weed he's talking about- it's just letting go...
