Just sitting here staring

at this blank notebook page

No music or lyrics in my brain

I'm trying so hard to think

of a rhythm or a rhyme

But I guess I've been spending all my time…

Tryin' not to write

Another plain old love song

You hear the same old stories over and over again

About love and hate

About breakin' up and then makin' up

About a first date

About goin' out and stayin' out late

My love song is gonna have more meaning,

Have more feeling

Because your heart is worth stealing

So I'm not gonna write you another plain old love song

Tryin' to get past

This writer's block

I can't control my thoughts at all

I try to express to you

The reasons why I live

But I guess the best reason that I can give

Is that I'm…

Tryin' not to write

Another plain old love song

You hear the same old stories over and over again

About love and hate

About breakin' up and then makin' up

About a first date

About goin' out and stayin' out late

My love song is gonna have more meaning,

Have more feeling

Because your heart is worth stealing

So I'm not gonna write you another plain old love song

So now I've reached

The last and final verse

Before I get to the bridge

This song is not at all rehearsed

But the thought that came to me first

Is that I should be…

Tryin' not to write

Another plain old love song

Throw in a couple curve balls

So no one can sing along

Unless their heart calls

If their heart calls, then they know

If their heart calls, then they know

Then they know, Then they know

That we can't go on writing plain old love songs

Because the world has had enough, had enough

Of these plain old loves songs

Because they're not good enough, good enough

For you, you deserve more than a plain old love song

So here you go, it's not another plain old love song
