I've had tons of friend-girls, but I've never had a girlfriend. Sad eh? One of my failings, and something I'm working on. I've always been this way, but the events of "The Alligator Song" sure didn't help.
The song isn't about anyone specific. In fact, I'd never had a thing for anyone with green eyes when I wrote it. But it is about a pattern of being attracted to friend-girls, and doing nothing about it. (In some cases, it had been made amply clear that it would not be welcome.)
If I ever complete it, my country song, "Friends who Just Want To Be Friends" will tread perilously similar ground. Which is one of the reasons I haven't completed it yet.
It's an early slow song with no chorus, as is "Time to Sleep".
