Story behind the song
This song is the first of two songs that were written as one song-- but later split apart :) This song is about waiting for the "right one", the one that's not just "Pretty". In particular, a girl comes to mind for me who is so beautiful that the crush simply does not wear off-- it continually comes back and loves to tell me all sorts of negative things about God, myself, my appearance, or anything at all. This girl is Christian-- so that's a big plus. But she doesn't seem to have quite the same views on a lot of matters as me. In other words, she doesn't seem "good for me". However, she's so beautiful, I tried to ask her out at least twice, and if she asked me, I don't think I could possibly say no. I wish I could get to the point where I could believe I would say no. For this reason, I am both torn that the girl who I probably have the biggest crush known to mankind on will probably never be my own, and thankful that God is taking care of me enough to keep me away from something He probably knows isn't good for me, and probably isn't even at a good time for me.
