Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Since You Been Gone"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
So in the night I stand beneath the backstreet light
I read the words that you sent to me
I can take the afternoon, the nighttime comes around too soon
You can't know what you mean to me
Why They're Misrhymed:
Change the "mean" to "meant", and the words would rhyme. (Though I don't know for sure, I think the original written lyrics may have used the word "meant".)
