And so I see you from across the room,
With a guy that looks just like I do,
Maybe he will be reminding you of me.

I've been replaced,
By a new name and face,
That looks just like the one that you've been trying to erase.

Does he care the way that I did once,
I know you don't but part of me still does,
He had my qualities,
My personality,
Are you seeing in him now what you first saw in me?

He has what I had and I want that,
Back by my side,
With your hand held in mine,
I can't just sit back and relax,
Knowing that we can't just rewind for just a moment in time.

And there's a difference between what was said,
And what is really meant,
And he is saying what it takes,
Only to get you in his bed.

Does he care the way that I did once,
I know you don't but part of me still does,
He had my qualities,
My personality,
Are you seeing in him now what you first saw in me?

He has what I had and I want that,
Back by my side,
With your hand held in mine,
I can't just sit back and relax,
Knowing that we can't just rewind for a moment in time.

If he's everything you want,
Cause he's everything I'm not,
Take a look at what you lost,
Cause that's everything you've got,
Is he everything you want,
Cause he's everything I'm not,
Take a look at what you lost,
Cause that's everything you've got,
Is he everything you want,
Cause he's everything I'm not,
Take a look at what you lost,
Cause that's everything you've got,
Is he everything you want,
Cause he's everything I'm not,
Take a look at what you lost,
Cause that's everything you've got.
