ACTUALLY, I TRY REALLY HARD

lyrics

I'll be your michael cera if you'll be my ellen page
cuz you've been on my mind at least nine tenths of yesterday
We'll leave the drama in the hills and lead the holly golightly life
let the future versions of ourselves deal with any stupid fights

I'll be your Jon Dorian if you'll be my giftshop girl
we can be like chris mcandless and run around the world
no one could ever stop us, we're like the mighty ducks
you're the only girl I know who'd go on a date to see the stanley cup

I'm no high school football hero, I'll never be a hollywood star
but i'll be your ever after, kiss you in between the bars
i'll never play in the nhl or save lives like dr. grey
but I'll be all you ever wanted, every single day

I'll be your ben stone if you'll be my allison scott
we'll stay up late watching movies and smoking lots of pot
if I was any better looking I'd say I'd be your ben affleck
but he always ends up single in any roll that isn't crap

I'm no high school football hero, I'll never be a hollywood star
but i'll be your ever after, kiss you in between the bars
i'll never play in the nhl or save lives like dr. grey
but I'll be all you ever wanted, every single day

if i were barney stinson you'd be the one girl I'd call back
and i swear that it's not just because you've got a real sweet "smile"
and I'm so glad I didn't break tradition and spoke my mind that night
even if it was in cliche movie style beneath a dim streetlight.

I'm no high school football hero, I'll never be a hollywood star
but i'll be your ever after, kiss you in between the bars
i'll never play in the nhl or save lives like dr. grey
but I'll be all you ever wanted, every single day
