1. Being alone is ok for a little while.

My love life was getting so bland
There are only so many ways I can make love with my hand. — “M&M’s”

2. Being the perfect girlfriend is really just about being REALLY fucking cool…and also getting on their mom’s good side.

Yeah, my girlfriend takes me home when I’m too drunk to drive
And she doesn’t get all jealous when I hang out with the guys
She laughs at my dumb jokes when no one does
She brings me mexican food from Sombrero’s just because
(Yeah, just because)

And my girlfriend likes U.L. and D.H.C.
And she’s so smart and independent, I don’t think she needs me
Quite half as much as I know I need her
I wonder why there’s not another guy that she’d prefer

And when I feel like giving up
Like my world is falling down

I show up at 3am
She’s still up watching Vacation, and I
See her pretty face
It takes me away to a better place and
I know that Everything’s gonna be fine. — “Josie”

3. You should always leave your significant other nice surprises, because they’re people too.

Late night, come home
Work sucks, I know
She left me roses by the stairs,
Surprises, let me know she cares. — “All The Small Things”

4. Even though a dude may love the shit out of you, he always has a hidden motive.

Everything’s better when she’s around
I can’t wait til her parents go out of town. — “Rock Show”

5. Everyone expects to be cheated on.

I saw you again
I know you fucked him again
Can you comfort yourself with a sense of revenge
Are you leaving me here with the taste of the end. — “Obvious”

6. Men will always hold back, because they are afraid.

I’m back at it, I just don’t seem to listen
I see your lips, I just can’t hear the sound
It’s all static, Just like my television
Her skills sharpened, Her eyes cut through the clouds
Love is dangerous. — “Love is Dangerous”

7. Once you break someone, they’ll be broken forever.

I’m empty like the day after Christmas
Swept beneath the wave of your goodbye
You left me on the day after Christmas
There’s nothing left to say, and so
Goodnight. — “Boxing Day” Thought Catalog Logo Mark
