There's not much going on today.
I'm really bored, it's getting late.
What happened to my Saturday?
Monday's coming, the day I hate.

Sit on my bed alone.
Staring at the phone.

He wasn't what I wanted,
What I thought, no.
He wouldn't even open up the door.
He never made me feel like I was special.
He isn't really what I'm looking for.

This is when I start to bite my nails.
I clean my room when all else fails.
I think it's time for me to bail.
This point of view it's getting stale.

Sit on my bed alone.
Staring at the phone.

He wasn't what I wanted,
What I thought, no.
He wouldn't even open up the door.
He never made me feel like I was special.
He isn't really what I'm looking for.

Oh, oh, oh oh oh.

Oh oh.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
We've all got choices
Nah, nah, nah, nah,
We've all got voices
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah,
Stand up make some noise.
Nah, nah, nah, nah,
Stand up make some noise.

Sit on my bed alone.
Staring at the phone.

He wasn't what I wanted,
What I thought, no.
He wouldn't even opened up the door.
He never made me feel like I was special.
He isn't really what I'm looking for.

He wasn't what I wanted,
What I thought, no.
He wouldn't even opened up the door.
He never made me feel like I was special.
Like I was special.
Cause I was special. Oh oh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

    the meaning is..
    the guy dont treat her girl that special...
    i mean..
    the guy is just like ..he dont care for the girl...
    the girl thought the guy is serious bout their relationship..
    but she then realized how stupid he was...
    he dont even care for her...
    just like what happened for me..

    Haha i love this song. It's helped me get over a few guys. Because guys are GAY!! :)
    It's about how she thought she liked a guy a lot and it turns out he was an IDIOT and she realized he never made her feel like she was special. It's awesome :D
