  • Today I screwed up again,
    You said I could tell in the way you said goodbye,
    I saw you sitting at your t-shirt stand with your new boyfriend,
    He's really cool, I get the point

    I don't want you, I don't want you,
    I heard you, I heard you, I heard you say not a chance,
    What don't you see,
    I don't want you, I don't want you,
    I heard you, I heard you, I heard you say you're not good enough for me

    Today I screwed up again,
    I wasn't paying attention, I walked into the wall again,
    I heard you laugh and saw you grin,
    While you were sitting at your t-shirt stand,
    With all your cool friends, they're really cool,
    I get the point


    Today I'll give it one last try,
    And then I'll wonder why, I did it to myself once again,
    I saw your boyfriend, he's 6'3", Quarterback on varsity
    The football players love to torture me,
    So I'm feeling like I'm not fitting in,
    I know that I'm not fitting in with you,
    And your stuck-up friends, I get the point Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, JOEL MADDEN

  • Bobsaget from Santee, CaActually i agree with both of u as quoted from thier song little thing they say " like the time that girl broke up with me cuz i wasnt cool enough" but in the song he does say that they're just a bunch up stuck-up snobs.
  • ? from Here, Wii love this song... i had the emaning a bit different tho... i always thought it was about a girl breaking up with the guy cuz he's not cool enough for her... hmm... ah, whatever. the meaning here makes sense too, so now im not sure...
