It's over now, and I don't know how...

Well, I guess it's over. I heard Rob Thomas' new solo song on the radio on my way home from work today. It's called "Lonely No More."

Now it seems to me that you know just what to say
But words are only words
Can you show me something else
Can you swear to me that you'll always be this way
Show me how you feel
More than ever, baby

Well, I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to have to pay for this
I don't want another lover at my door
It's just another heartache on my list
I don't wanna be angry no more
You do know I could never stand for this
So when you tell me that you love me, know for sure
I don't wanna be lonely anymore

Now it's hard for me when my heart is still on the mend
Open up to me
Like you do your girlfriends
And you sing to me and it's harmony
Girl, what you do to me is everything
Let me say anything just to get you back again
Why can't we just try

I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to have to pay for this
I don't want another lover at my door
It's just another heartache on my list
I don't wanna be angry no more
You do know I could never stand for this
So when you tell me that you love me, know for sure
I don't wanna be lonely anymore

What if I was good to you
What if you were good to me
What if I could hold you till I feel you move inside of me
What if it was paradise
And what if we were symphonies
What if I gave all my life to find some way to stand beside you

I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to have to pay for this
I don't want another lover at my door
It's just another heartache on my list
I don't wanna be angry no more
But you know I could never stand for this
When you tell me that you love me, know for sure
I don't wanna be lonely any more

So, I guess that could be it for Matchbox Twenty. Well, it's been a good 9 or 10 years. If this is indeed the end, allow me to share a couple of stories. When the second album was released, two different chicks ended up buying me a copy. I had to give one back. So that was kinda neat. Or something. Then, at the concert two years ago, it felt like it was me and about ten thousand 15-year-old girls. Oh, that's because it was.

"I almost wrote a song about you today, but I tore it all up and then I threw it away. And I almost had you, but I guess that doesn't cut it. Almost loved you, and I didn't even know it..."

  1. No, matchbox 20 is not splitting up. for good anyways. the band released a statement on their site (i think) that said they were going to do individual things and then get back together. otherwise they would not be together years down the road (kind of like creed I think). and thomas said that if they put an album out now it would be stale.
    So, good news, they will be back!

  2. Yeah, I read something similar online a few weeks ago. Maybe they'll put out another record. We'll see.
