She Used To Be

Some of these new songs contain my fabulous wife singing along on them... This is one of the first songs I wrote specifically for her to sing with me. All the lines he used to are Tessa singing about me. Tessa also helped write some of the lyrics on this number. We wrote this on the way to a friends house where we heard the Moldy Peaches for the first time. It seems they share some similiar dynamics. I guess I'm behind the times.

She used to be a drummer in the marching band
She used to be a person I don't understand
She used to be a stranger from so far away
And now she's my best friend

He used to be the singer in a punk rock band
He used to be a baseball player in the sand
He used to be a stranger from so far away
And now he's my best friend

She used to call a commune in Chicago home
She used to never ever wanna be alone
She used to be the truth behind my contradictions
And now she's my best friend

He used to be a cheerleader in Highschool
He used to wear hammer pants when they weren't cool
He used to be the truth behind my contradictions
And how he's my best friend

She used to drive me crazy and right up the wall
And then she'd go and answer all my phone calls
And then she went she went ahead and married me
And now she's my best friend

He used to be the answer to my greatest fears
You see he is my junior by a few years
And then he went he went ahead and married me
And now she's my best friend

Now were so happy to be living not alone
Yes were so glad to not be talking on the phone
Yes I'm with you and I'm so happy your with me
AND NOW YOUR MY BEST FRIEND!
