  • He helped me change a tire in the Citgo parking lot
    He said we both could use a beer
    And I said "Hell, why not?"
    What started out as one night turned to six months just like that
    He never had a ring on
    So I never thought to ask

    But then one night I saw a message on his phone
    That said, "Hey babe, what time you comin' home?"

    I never wanted to be that girl
    I never wanted to hate myself
    I thought this kind of lonely only happens to somebody else
    And being "the Other One" when there's another one
    God, this feels like hell
    I thought I knew who I was but it's getting hard to tell
    I never wanted to be that girl

    I've heard about those women who didn't have a clue
    The ones that made excuses like my mama used to do
    And he jumps in the shower just as soon as he gets home
    And I spend half an hour going through his phone

    I never wanted to be that girl
    I never wanted to hate myself
    I thought this kind of lonely only happens to somebody else
    And being "the Other One" when there's another one
    God, this feels like hell
    I thought I knew who I was but it's getting hard to tell
    I never wanted to be that girl

    Oh and I feel stupid
    I feel cheap
    I feel used
    I feel weak

    I never wanted to be that girl
    I never wanted to hate myself
    I thought this kind of lonely only happens to somebody else
    Being "the Other One" when there's another one
    God, this feels like hell
    I thought I knew who I was but it's getting hard to tell
    I never wanted to be that girl
    I never wanted to be that girl
    I never wanted to be that girl
