Quick One: I'm married now.

But years ago, when I wasn't, I felt exactly this way.

And I'm quite certain that another boy felt exactly this way about me.

And yet, no one said it. And certainly, no one said it in a song.

The lyrics and sentiment of this song are so spot-on and really simple and yet also excrutiatingly astute and painful and insightful and clever. There is more in this song than in most of the young adult novels I read.

Donovan Woods, "I Ain't Saying She's Better"

...And the voice ain't half-bad either.

Oh yeah, and he's Canadian.

Holy crap that is an amazing song. Just between you and me, it *may* have made me cry. I'm just sayin'. MAYBE.
