I met a girl named Tara
And she lived in the heart of america
She like black caddies
Listened to puff daddy
Danced until her legs were sore

She worked around the corner
At a diner with the grouchy owner
And her boyfriend Shady, dates another girl named Katie
He loves her definitely maybe

Don't think I can take it
Wake me when it's over
Seems so far away
I wish that it was closer
I see you every day
I'm too scared to go over
I wonder what she'd say
I barely even know her

How much longer
Will this keep getting stronger
I wonder what she's doing when I'm singin' myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker
So see ya later
I wonder when you'll realize that she means a lot more to me

I saw you in the hallway when my last class was just over
It was friday, school was out tonight
Everything seems to be alright
I said,
"Yo are you going to the party at the cove?"
She said,
"He is picking me up six again, and I don't wanna disappoint my boyfriend."

How much longer
Will this keep getting stronger
I wonder what she's doing when I'm singin' myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker
So see ya later
I wonder when you'll realize that she means a lot more to me

And she's staring at his picture hanging in her locker
She's telling all the girls about all the things that he bought her
I saw what really happened all those times he went for water
When we were at the movie theater watching Harry Potter
He had his hands on
Every single girl he laid his eyes on
Hate to break it to you, he's a pylon
And even when he kissed her
He was looking over, staring at her sister

How much longer
Will this keep getting stronger
I wonder what she's doing when I'm singin' myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker
So see ya later
I wonder when you'll realize that she means a lot more to me

I met a girl named Tara
And she lived in the heart of America
She like black caddies
Listened to puff daddy
Danced untill her legs were sore

She worked around the corner
At a diner with the grouchy owner
And her boyfriend Shady, dates another girl named Katie
He loves her definitely maybe

    it's about a guy who is inlove with a girl but the girl has already a boyfriend, which treats her the way she doesn't deserve. (he's cheating on her). the singer wants to say that he can do better.

    the guy thinks that the girl should not treated like that way... because she deserves all the good things in the world and the love that will value her...

    the guy singing seems to be more honest to the girl he loves more than the boyfriend of this girl. honestly speaking, the boyfriend of this girl whom the singer love is a BiG FLiRT! he flirts with everyone. so it's very right for the guy singing to call him a 'faker'. if i were the girl, i would much prefer the boy singing here, even if my boyfriend means a lot to me. [ofcourse who would be picking a guy who is completely lying to you?..pffft. the girl is being martyr for that crazy love huh..xD]

    I really don't know but i think it's when a teenager meets a girl that he barely met and remembers her in his later years. It's like falling in love with the person that walks down the hall from you. Sooner they become friends and they hang out. Then that's the reason why he knows about him cheating, her boyfriend, and where she works. Sooner he became protective and wanted to protect her from what he's doing so he watches out for her. Kinda like a big brother little sister complex. He knows she likes shady and also knows it would break her heart if she knew. But seeing her happy with a guy that doesn't love her tends to make him worry and tempt him to tell her his confession. Well that's what i think.

    A girl cant see how shes being treated badly in this situation while the true guy that likes her can see it and is trying to show her that he's better.
