About a Girl

Album: Fast Times at Barrington High (2008)
  • One song about a girl
    I can't breathe when I'm around her
    I'll wait here everyday
    In case you scratch the surface
    She'll never notice

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    Last night I knew what to say
    But you weren't there to hear it
    These lines: so well rehearsed
    Tongue-tied and overloaded
    You never noticed

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    I'm not in love
    This is not your song
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    To be loved, to be loved
    What more could you ask for?
    To be loved, to be loved
    Everyone wants to be loved
    To be loved
    What more could you ask for
    To be loved, to be loved
    Everyone...

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words

    I'm not in love
    This is not my heart
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    About a girl

    I'm not in love
    (To be loved, to be loved, what more could you ask for?)
    This is not your song
    (To be loved, to be loved, everyone wants)
    I'm not gonna waste these words
    (To be loved, to be loved, what more could you ask for?)
