I took a picture of a girl I once knew
I kept it here in case I'd run into you
The look on your face could light up a room
But instead you left

And now I'm sitting with my head on the dashboard
Push my seat back and close my eyes
I had this dream that I was on an airplane
Afraid to fly
I tipped my head to the side and I whispered
To this man that was in the aisle
I said "Do you know how long it takes be-fore we die?"
And then I rolled awake

[Chorus]
Can you take me back to the person I used to be?
Back when you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
And held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

I stop your breathin' everytime I'm around, girl
Your body's sweatin' and your hands start to shake
I know you can't control your eyes
But I know that your looks
Are fake

So tease me once and I swear I'll forget
How it feels when you've got nothing left
We'll take it slow and only work at it sometimes
Oh yeah...

[Chorus]
Take me back to the person I used to be?
When you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
Held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh

I took a picture of a girl I once knew
I kept it here in case I'd run into you
The look on your face could light up a room
But instead you left
And oh you left...

[Chorus]
Can you take me back to the person I used to be?
Back when you were there for me
I know it seems like forever
But do me this favor please
Way back when we were stupid
And held grudges just to help us sleep
Oh my God, how ridiculous were we?

Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhhhhh

    This song, at least the way that I relate to it's about a guy who totally f*****d over a platonic/semi-romantic relationship (like, the girl defiantly wanted more and he did too but was just too close to see it) because he wouldn't make a move so she cut him off and tried to force him completely out of her life. It's at this point hat he realizes just how much she really meant to him and how incomplete and just totally dead he feels inside without her. Because they are both still I'm the area though, they still see each other (not on speaking terms really though), but neither one is willing to concede that they were in the wrong originally, so, although it's dead obvious that she wants him back, she puts on a false front and pretends not to care and while he may not buy that, he's not gonna be the one to try to re initiate the relationship, but he would, however, throw himself at her feet if she'd just say the word. They both a missing one another, but are letting what they once shared fade into obscurity because no one wants to end up crushed while trying to break the ice.

    In verse 1, it tells us that he likes a girl that he is dreaming(dream girl) but then that girl left her. On the 2nd verse he is telling us that he is afraid to fly, to go to heaven. The airplane is like the transportation going to heaven. Hence he is not dying yet so he woke up.

    Chorus is like the girl died and he wants to be with him. Forever is eternity for him.

    no..the song is about him missing the good times...but not wanting them back. he realises that she is fake and not really worth his time...
    he realises that he is in fact over her.
    he is getting back at hert and closeing all windows to her...

    listen to it more carefully seriously.

    ooo and me and my friend performed it at our school and got amazing reviews hehe...thought i would post that too...

    xx
