  • [Chorus]
    This the shit they gonna play,
    on every station every day
    These the words you can't escape,
    girl I wrote this song for you
    When you're drivin in your car
    pretending you don't know the words by heart
    Girl I'll be your superstar,
    told you from the start I was gonna write a song for you

    I'm trying to think back to that,
    after that,
    Journey to your heart always seemin like I had the map
    In these trips I've had to do,
    I was simply passin through
    Was a dedication, now its chapter two
    On these pages now I see that,
    when I'm with you I can't be that
    Guy that you need now, so whats this story about?
    It don't seem like you can figure it out
    No, a lots change since we met up in June
    This love you can't buy but you let it consume
    And I try for you but it just don't work
    I won't lie to you baby what's this worth
    All this fightin gets us nowhere
    Losin you to the crowd
    And there's no way we gon make this right
    So baby go and turn your radio loud

    [Chorus]

    An eternity of questions while answers she had none of
    Still when I was with her toss and turn until the sun up
    Wait for me to come up, don't let it blind you
    I have half a mind to remind you
    That I can't be there every time you need me
    If you don't like that then you can leave me
    But I won't sit here and have you tell me I'm wrong
    'Cause been right and I'll be writin till I'm gone
    You say you lie awake waitin,
    Like thats the reason we're fadin,
    Keep blamin me it just ain't right
    And it's not my fault you can't sleep at night
    All this fightin got us nowhere
    Lost you to the crowd
    And you will see where went wrong
    You just gotta turn your radio loud

    [Chorus]

    Now I'm livin the life
    We was doin it wrong,
    now we getting it right
    Its been a long time since I written this song
    Used to turn this off,
    now you singing along
    And even though we're done for
    Girl I'll prolly see you at my shows in the front row
    Screamin out the words like I told you you would do
    And even though it hurts, you always knew
    That I was gonna write a song for you

    [Chorus x2]

    Told you what I would do
    Kept my word when I said I was gonna write a song for you
