  • That wasn't funny, but she laughed so hard, she almost cried
    They're countin' months they've been together, almost forty-nine
    He's makin' fun of how she acted around the holidays
    She wears a ring, but they tell people that they're not engaged
    They met in class for metaphysical philosophy
    He tells his friends I like her 'cause she's so much smarter than me
    They're having talks about their futures until 4AM
    And I'm happy for them (I'm happy for them)

    But I wanna feel all that love and emotion
    Be that attached to the person I'm holdin'
    Someday I'll be fallin' without caution
    But for now I'm only people watchin'

    I'm only lookin' just to live through you vicariously
    I've never really been in love, not seriously
    I had a dream about a house behind a picket fence
    Next one I choose to trust, I hope I use some common sense
    But I cut people out like tags on my clothing
    I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping

    I wanna feel all that love and emotion
    Be that attached to the person I'm holdin'
    Someday I'll be falling, without caution
    But for now I'm only people watchin'

    Cut people out like tags on my clothing
    I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping
    I won't be scared to let someone know me
    Life feels so monotone, but I still keep hoping
    Cut people out like tags on my clothing
    I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping
    I won't be scared to let someone know me
    Life feels so monotone, but I still keep hoping

    I feel love emotion

    I wanna feel all that love and emotion
    Be that attached to the person I'm holdin'
    Someday I'll be falling without caution
    But for now I'm only people watchin'
