Epiphany - Bowling For Soup

Stop before you get my started
Maybe I'll just go
I'm not exactly broken hearted
But I think you already know
That there's more to the story that I'm givin' up
Maybe I should just grow up

There's a picture of a girl somewhere
That fits this empty frame
And there's a song here somewhere with a happier refrain
It came to me, I think they call it an epiphany
Man that's a big word

[Chorus:]
All I ever wanted was a little extra ordinary
Somewhat somewhat documented
And depicted in this book of memories
That's as empty as a broken glass,
Or a gas tank in my car
If you can hear me now,
Come out, come out, wherever you are

I try so hard not to remember
I wish I could forget
The thoughts of you in syndication
Just like the time I met Joan Jett
At a Grammy party on a Saturday night
After you and me had a big fight

There's a picture of a boy somewhere that fits your empty frame
I tried switching the station,
But the song stays the same
It came to me, think they call it an epiphany
That line was lame

[Chorus:]
All I ever wanted was a little extra ordinary
Somewhat somewhat documented
And depicted in this book of memories
That's as empty as a broken glass
Or a gas tank in my car
If you can hear me now,
Come out, come out, wherever you are

[Bridge]
Are you still at home?
Or did you go to Rome?
I swear I think I saw you on some Italian movie
Showing on the plane
I couldn't read your name
Subtitles don't work on the credits,
Man that's a shame
And it's a shame 'bout me and you
No one to blame but, you

[Chorus:]
All I ever wanted was a little extra ordinary
Somewhat somewhat documented
And depicted in this book of memories
That's as empty as a broken glass
Or a gas tank in my car
If you can hear me now,
If you can hear me now,
If you can hear me now,
Come out, come out, wherever you are
Wherever you are
I think they call it an epiphany
