Mr. Nice Guy

about

a purely autobiographical song about a time in my life where i found myself easily taken advantage of. i've since grown out of my naivete.

lyrics

you can say whatever you want
you can walk all over me
for any reason you can blow me off
you can pinch me until i bleed
still gonna be there when you call
still gonna catch you if you fall


still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
if you want me to be

you don't have to listen to me
you don't have to return my calls
you don't need to do anything for me
all you gotta do is call

and i'll be right there by your side
even if you're just using me for a free ride

still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
if you want me to be


i don't know why, guess i'm mr. nice guy
i've tried not to be oh god knows i've tried
but you can hurt me, ignore me, leave me, you can shoot me down
still you know that i will be around

still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
still gonna be the one who loves you
i'll always be the one who loves you...
