I took a page out of your favorite book
You sold me lies just by the way you look
Taught me a language that I've never speak
Baby, that ain't for me, that, that ain't for me
I dug my grave watchin' the way you move
You took me higher than I ever flew, ooh
Too many times, gave you a second chance
Baby, I'm just a man, I'm, I'm just a man

No more thinkin' about you late night
No more runnin' around with your friends now
Done pickin' up pieces of my soul up off the floor, oh, oh

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby
But I can't play this game no more
I thought it would kill me
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

You never thought this day would ever come
But I looked you in the eyes and pulled the rug
You tried to take away my sanity
Baby, that ain't for me, that, that ain't for me

Oh, no more thinkin' about you late night
No more runnin' around with your friends now
Done pickin' up pieces of my soul up off the floor, oh, oh

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby
But I can't play this game no more
I thought it would kill me
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

When I showed you the door
When I showed you the door
But tonight I saved my life

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby (I don't wanna lose you, baby)
But I can't play this game no more (No more)
I thought it would kill me (I thought it would kill me)
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

Mm-hmm
Oh, oh, oh

I'm 78, imbued with the amazing music I grew up with from my mid-50s adolescence listening to far-flung late night US radio stations on a rocket crystal radio earplug under the covers when my parents expected me to be asleep, to the the eclecticism I've grown to really love here at RP.

To the point: this is happy in my ears, has a 'Gnarls Barkley - Crazy' flavour,,,
Maybe the song of summer 2024

Damn! I guess the grandparent contingent is sounding unanimous. Grandaddy of one votes "hell, yes" on Teddy Swims . . love that tune!
This song is fabulous.  Love it!

Already over-played and wearing out.

There is another, rather more likely interpretation - they don't like the song.  



Occam's razor is slicing and dicing someone here.

Funniest comment ever on RP.  
points off for bad posture.
I had to check out who this was as soon as I heard his voice.  WOW.

hmm, nice...
Love it!  Added to my Playlist!   Thanks.  
Been said 1000 times now, but it is awesome to find new music here! Really digging the sort of soul disco vibe... And the album title is legendary
It's nice to hear that some modern pop music isn't just copy and paste crap. Good on ya, Teddy. 7 from me for now. 
This song is a vibe
Enjoying how in both the album cover and his wikipedia my man is in a state of repose on various furniture... comfort goals
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door...

There's some people voting this song as a 1-3, and I think it's because they cannot fathom RP ever having **gasp** NEW music added to the rotation.  

Thank you, Alanna!




Comes in at 7 for me, he looks like a detention desk but great tune on first listen

Nice voice, not bad lyrics. I gave it an 8. It gets my attention while I'm working, so eventually it may move to a 9.

Another song from Part 1 that I enjoy quite a bit.

Thought about wishing for Teddy to get therapy,  
but that may prevent him from releasing a Part 2. 
Keep it up RP! This is fantastic, like always.
