The Oldest Subject of Song-Writing Since Society’s Start

As the title of this post would suggest, this is a question that has been asked in many forms many times. Alas, there’s no easy way to solve a riddle like this. That is, no easy way for a normal man.
But not for a man…and another man..and a song that those men wrote. A song which answers that riddle. Mostly.

Also, many thanks to everyone who comes back to listen to our advice each week. We’ve even had some downloads from overseas! (That’s exciting!)

Dear Jeff and Elliott,

I like girls, but most of the time they only like me as a friend.
I put myself out there and either make a fool of myself or wind
up just being good friends with them. What am I doing wrong?

Lonely in…well nothing really goes well with Indianapolis.

Dear Lonely,

I’ve just met this person they’re so great
They make me want to celebrate every part of my life

No one’s ever known the feeling that I feel today
Everything is going my way -
What’s that you say?

You just want to remain friends
I guess that’s cool I guess
You should probably ignore what probably seemed like me trying to kiss you,
I was just trying to get some food off of your face, it looked like alfredo, from that dinner that I cooked for you…

Alright, goodnight
I hate my life
I’m in need of some advice

Don’t ever be afraid to put it all on the line
Would you rather be a fool or never have the chance to find
If things could work out, it’s worth that scary leap
In this game of love it doesn’t pay to be a sheep

And you should never take for granted anyone as a friend
Even if it wasn’t what your means meant as an end
They can still be there, to make you feel okay
You just won’t get baisers at the end of the day

Why does it take so long?
What am I doing wrong?
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be

Waiting my whole life
Just to find someone right

Please allow some time
But do not wait in line
Only fools rush in
And only fools ever win
When you find someone right
Don’t push too hard or too light
Just be your awesome self
Unless you’re annoying as hell
