28 Reasons Not To Love You

You say you’re ready to love me
And there’s nothing that I want more
Than to pull the shades, turn off the phone,
Put down the bottle and unlock the door

It’s the light barely reaching your shoulders
And the dark just behind your neck
You’re the perfect example of a painting
But inside you’re a wreck

And so am I - oh so am I, and you came here tonight
Thinking I just might let you in
So am I - yeah so am I, I’ve got 28 reasons not to love you
But my head’s getting thin

Do you remember one Sunday morning
When you woke up alone
And you drove across town with hot coffee and a smile
But you should have known

When you found me the snow was still falling
You were shining and I had the shakes
I’d give all the whiskey in the world for you to see
You’re still making the same mistakes

And so am I - so am I, I’m half crazy
But my other half is wiser than it’s ever been
So am I - oh so am I, I’ve got 28 reasons not to love you
But I’m thinking again

So am I - so am I, it’s been 3 years since I’ve seen you
Baby, where you been?
So am I - so am I, I’ve got 28 reasons not to love you
But forget about them

I’ve got 28 reasons not to love you,
Baby come back again
