I haven't really found love yet, though I've been searching rather hard. Rather, I've hardly been searching, I just keep getting caught off guard. I keep wondering if you could ever wonder if you could ever love me. Is there any chance at all that I'm done with my searching? (So) this is my theoretical love song that I'm theoretically singing you, This is to theoretically say that I theoretically love you, (yeah) this is my theoretical love song that you're theoretically listening to, This is to theoretically say that I hypothetically, possibly, maybe, might need you. Insert girl's name here for the second time through, Shout it loud and clear so it always rings true, But you and I both know that this song is about you and that this song is... theoretically true... yeah, alright... Chorus And I would wait for theoretical years to be the guy who dries your theoretical tears And I would wait for theoretical years to be the guy who theoretically calms your fears Chorus I'm a little bit non-committal in the middle of this riddle about you and me but by the end of this chorus this little bit of non-committalness you can probably see, yeah Chorus Yeah, this is my theoretical love song and I just want you to know how much I might love you

So much depends on the pile of things heaped on our broad shoulders above our injured knees...

There's an elephant on my couch, I guess he's in my room, there is dirt on the floor, could you grab the broom, we'll sweep it under the rug, then you can vacuum, while I find you a band-aid for your gaping wound, Chorus If you don't want the intruder to put flowers on your table, you'd better lock your door, we live like kings off the backs of the empire's dining room fable of more and more There's a map on my wall it says this country's huge, there's a history book, I have not perused, It probably doesn't say how empires are doomed, how they all fade fast into the blue x2 how they all wilt faster than they bloomed, Chorus Mr. Elephant what's your deal, why don't you go away, go balance on a ball, or eat some hay. There comes a time in our live's we've gotta put up a peaceful fight don't count on your chicken's not hatching before they might Chorusx2

Find Me 04:16
Greg the trucker took us down to Roanoke, Nathan read the Bible while I played myself in chess, and people round here seem to be nice country folk, and we're just two young guys headed off to find ourselves, I've looked left and I've looked right, I've looked through every book that's on the shelf, I've looked up and I've looked down, I've looked around but I just can't seem to find myself Ben Wyse fixed my bike, but I still can't ride smooth, Hope God's on call to fix my knee. Sometimes I find I have no faith at all, It's hard to face reality I've looked left and I've looked right, I've stayed up looking through the night I've looked up and I've looked down, I've looked around but I just can't seem to find myself Chorus (and) I need you to find me, I need you to find me, I need you to find what I've misplaced, My soul and my feeling, my heart and my meaning, I know that I had them just the other day Maybe I left them in my pockets, went through the wash and now they're ruined, maybe they're covered in the blood from my bleeding heart, you know that arrow went right through, Chorus And when I'm rich and also famous, someone will find them in the dust, look at these quality emotions, they've gathered value with their rust Chorusx2 Greg the trucker took us down to Roanoke.
