Ever have that song you want to listen to again but you didnt quite catch its name? Do you remember a small part of the song? Lyric search engines not doing jack to help you out? Then this is the thread for you!

I needed help finding a song that I doubt anyone has heard before but I thought it'd be worth a shot to try here and might as well make a general topic for others having this dilemma.

So my request is the following.
It was kind of a country-ish song from what I remember with alot of that fast paced country song guitar. It was a song about two lovers, both singing but not that usual country lovey dovey BS, it was more of a crazy lovers type of thing, for some reason I got a bonney and clyde feel. Anyways I just remember the last part where it's telling the story of how the girl fell and was bleeding heavily and he says something like "As I drove you to the hospital that day...and you smoked what you thought would be your last cigarette i realized something that day. " and the womans like "Whats that?"
"I realized that I loved you"
and shes all like "Awwwh! I love you too :D"

...It was a pretty weird song. It'd help if I remembered the peoples names, they say it in the song. I dont remember where I heard it since I was switching stations between my usual favorites without listening. I doubt it was one of the hip hop or rap stations, so it was probably a light rock station, which makes me believe its an older song. Any Idea what the hell im talking about :)?

Is this your song? (http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858786021/)

Him: Jade
Her: Alexander
Him: Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?
Her: I sure do, you came jumping out after me
Him: Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass, you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
Her: Yes, I do
Him: Well, there's something I never told you about that night
Her: What didn't you tell me?
Him: While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, and I never told you until just now

No one will probably be able to find this, but I've been looking for this song for a few years now. It's from the 50s or something, I saw it in a video my US History teacher showed us, and I believe the name was "You can't get a man with your brain", it was about how women shouldn't try to go to school or anything because you can't get a man with your brain.

Toujours you are an angel. Thank you!!

I knew the name had something to do with Home, but I didn't think I had it right on the money. I feel like an idiot .Best of luck on your search.

No problem, it just took some creative searching xD

I discovered with my new searching skills that this 50s song is mentioned like twice on the internet. It was exactly what I thought, it's called what I thought and it's from 50s television pushing "domestic sciences". I doubt anyone knows anything more about it than the two essays that mention it in passing, but if anyone does let me know x]
