Corndog
Bowling for Soup Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Was all alone on a Saturday night
The funny thing is, we didn't even have a fight
I stayed up all night crying, and I slept all day, missed the game
Inside I think I'm dying, I just can't figure out how she slipped away

I was out all night one day in Dallas
And the strangest thing is, I can't remember a thing
I was drunk and drinking, and I woke up in my best friends car
My friends say I got crazy, still need to find out how she slipped away

I have no idea what I did
She just told me, "Have someone check your head"
Let me ask you, do you think I was wrong?

Trying too hard, maybe I came on too strong
Trying to find
Trying to find
Trying to find a reason not to leave your side
Trying to find
Trying to find a answer before I lose my mind

I was at a club real late last Tuesday
And the wierdest thing is, I can't remember her name
I stayed up all night trying to make her face look just like yours
And she ended up crying, I still need to find out why you slipped away

I have no idea what I did
She just told me, "Have someone check your head"
Let me ask you, do you think I was wrong?
Trying too hard, maybe I came on too strong

Trying to find
Trying to find
Trying to find a reason not to leave your side




Trying to find
Trying to find a answer before I lose my mind
