As Lovers Go Lyrics - Dashboard Confessional

Review The Song (17)



She said "I've gotta be honest,
You're wasting your time if you're fishing round here."
And I said "you must be mistaken,
I'm not fooling... this feeling is real"
She said "you gotta be crazy,
What do you take me for? Some kind of easy mark?
"You've got wits, you've got looks,
You've got passion, but I swear that you've got me all wrong."

All wrong.
All wrong.
But you got me...

I'll be true, I'll be useful...
I'll be cavalier...i'll be yours my dear.
And I'll belong to you...
If you'll just let me through.
This is easy as lovers go,
So don't complicate it by hesitating.
And this is wonderful as loving goes,
This is tailor-made, whats the sense in waiting?

And I said "I've gotta be honest
I've been waiting for you all my life."
For so long I thought I was asylum bound,
But just seeing you makes me think twice.
And being with you here makes me sane,
I fear I'll go crazy if you leave my side.
You've got wits... you've got looks,
You've got passion but are you brave enough to leave with me tonight?

Tonight.
Tonight.
But you've got me...

I'll be true, I'll be useful...
I'll be cavalier...i'll be yours my dear.
And I'll belong to you...
If you'll just let me through.
This is easy as lovers go,
So don't complicate it by hesitating.
And this is wonderful as loving goes,
This is tailor-made, whats the sense in waiting?
This is easy as lovers go,
So don't complicate it by hesitating.
And this is wonderful as loving goes,
This is tailor-made, whats the sense in waiting?

One of my favorite songs. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/4/09

Beautiful song with heart behind it.
I think this is one of the best love songs ever written because it doesn't have all the stupid "I love you" "You're so beautiful" "Lets be together forever" mush (not that those are bad things to say to a person...).
This song tells you a story. Now what everybody thinks the story the guys from Dashboard Confessional are trying to tell may be different.
The story I think they're trying to tell is...There is a boy chasing a very disant girl whose obviously been hurt before. He's saying he'd do the world for her if she'd just understand he's not teasing her. Beautiful sog. Beautiful lyrics.
GO DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL!



contradicting? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/09

I think the point is that his feelings are contradicting. he'll do anything for this girl and he'll be whatever she needs. even if that means two completely opposite things at the same time. but it really is a beautiful song I will NEVER get sick of this song.



Sweet Song | Reviewer: Kelsea | 11/12/07

I remember listening to this the night I first made love..... Tomorrow will be 1 year and 7 months....Dashboard Confessionals make the most romantic and beautiful songs. I printing these lyrics out for my baby on our Anniversary.



teelorme? | Reviewer: Tim | 11/5/07

what is that? i always thought it was "tailor made" unless i'm wrong... which, ya know, is more likely than not!

Cavalier | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/31/07

I really don't see how the line "I'll be true, I'll be useful, I'll be cavalier" is contradictory at all.
A cavalier is a "gallant" or "courtly" gentleman
Which seems to go right along with true and useful in my opinion....

But anyways, this is an absolutely gorgeous song.
But you can't expect less from Dashboard <3 They're amazing!

This song is absolutely amazing. It always touches my heart in some way each and every time I listen to it.




got my girl from this song | Reviewer: enderfan | 9/3/07

this song is awesome. i got my girl by singing to her this song. dc's songs work. they are the best band. very poetic and meaningful.. i love dc.



makes no sense | Reviewer: Jordan | 8/30/07

these lyrics don't make a piece of sense. saying "i'll be true, i'll be useful, i'll be cavalier" is completely contradictory. i love this song though, but that one lyric always bothered me.



amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/29/07

i've always loved this band and this song sooo much. it's so sweet, i could be listening to it all day long!
