Staring from my room I see them
Holding hands wish I could be them
Lovers doing what we use to do
(But I'm stuck here alone)
That's the way it's been here lately
You're too busy now to save me
Feels like you forget I'm waiting for you

Sometimes I wish I could just let go
But I love you (I love you)
And I believe that one day you will come around
But can you tell me

How do I always end up being the girl at the window
(Window, window)
I tell myself I'm not gonna wait for you whenever you go
(You go, you go)
You give me your word and I always take it
You say you'll be home but you never make it
So why do I...
Always end up that girl at the window (the window)
The girl at the window

I know you're working that's why you're leaving
I will never argue your reasons
If this means that you believe in them
Oh time goes on and we're growing apart
Broken promises break my heart
Please don't give me a reason to say goodbye

Sometimes I wish I could just let go
But I love you (I love you)And I believe that one day you will come around
But can you tell me

How do I always end up being the girl at the window
(Window, window)
I tell myself I'm not gonna wait for you whenever you go
(You go, you go)
You give me your word and I always take it
You say you'll be home but you never make it
So why do I...
Always end up that girl at the window (the window)
The girl at the window

How can I be what you're saying
When you keep turning all the pages
Am I suppose to believe your words are true
Don't take advantage of me cause you know I won't leave you
I make sure you know I always wanna see you
Whoa won't you do it for me too

Oh how do I always end up being the girl at the window
(Window, window)
I tell myself I'm not gonna wait for you whenever you go
(You go, you go)
You give me your word and I always take it
You say you'll be home but you never make it
So why do I...
Always end up that girl at the window (the window)
The girl at the window

    Good dear people.. "the girl in the window" is a metaphor, since most women do wait at the window to see their husband come home from wherever. Only that this time he's the one waiting at the window while the girl is out doing what he hopes she's not doing. Don't interpret the lyrics literally.

    I think he is saying he is with a girl but she never is home with him and never spends any time with him and she will just leave him looking on and wishing (like the girl in a window). He also says he's left with broken promises that she's obviously made to him to come and see her and then she cancels and he wishes at the beginning he could be like the couple he see's who actually are together. Thats how i interpret it :)
