LOTD

Today's is a favorite, from John Mayer:

Man on the Side

Six numbers
One more to dial
Before I'm before you
I tried to call
Been busy all night
Gave up waiting at daylight

Excuse me mrs. busybody
Could you pencil me in when you can?
Though we both know
That the worst part about it
Is i would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me

Oh, I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man on the side

One of the many
But one of the few
To stand back and wait for you

Excuse me mrs. busybody
Could you pencil me in when you can?
Though we both know that the worst part about it
Is I would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me
If you wanted me

Oh, I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man on the side
Life as the man on the side

I fell in love with a dream that I built of you
Playing the part of the queen
Taking my own advice
I'm giving up tonight
Good luck to you and the king

Excuse me mrs. busybody
Could you pencil me in?
Though we both know that the worst part about it
Is I would be free when you wanted me
If you wanted me
If you wanted me

I am the man on the side
Hoping you'll make up your mind
I am the one who will swallow his pride
Life as the man
You know life as the man
Living life as the man on the side

I love John Mayer. I heard one of his songs in a store the other day and started singing along. I think the shoppers must've thought I was crazy, but hey, it was a good song. =]

Sorah -
He's awesome. I saw him in concert last summer, it was great fun. Check out his whole "Continuum" album.
