Comparisons are easily done
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on
Where do I go
I guess second best
Is all I will know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes.

You're like an Indian summer
In the middle of a winter
Like a hard candy
With a surprise center
How do I get better
Once I've had the best
You said there's
Tons of fish in the water
So the water's I will test

He kissed my lips
I taste your mouth
He pulled me in
I was disgusted with myself

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into

You're the best
And yes I do regret
How I could let myself
Let you go
Now the lesson's learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh won't you walk through
And bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay.

    Her and some other guy were together. She can't seem to get away from the memories. She misses him, and they let each other go. Everytime she's with someone else she thinks of him

    I hate being put to tears but this song is so good that I want to hear it even though it makes me tearup. It reminds me of my boyfriend of a year and about a month's premature death, he died in the airport parking lot coming to see me. It was going to be my christmas present. It reminds me of all his and my friends telling me to move on and putting me on dates when all I could do is think of him. I LOVE YOU MY LOVERBOY, DARREN. R.I.P 12-22-08
    The saddest thing was that he was going to purpose to me on Christmas. Oh my I'm crying again.

    This song really hits it home with me. She and the man she loves are separated and even though she's not with him, she wants him so badly.
    "How do I get Better once I've had the Best?" That line is killer. Kudos to Katy Perry.
