My problem isn’t that I miss you
Cause I don’t
My problem isn’t that I kissed you
I figured out
That you’re nothing that I thought you’re about
You’re just caught in a place
That soon time will erase from my heart

You’re my type of guy, I guess
If I was stuck in East Northumberland High
For the rest of my life
But people change
Thank God I did
Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you now
Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you

Your problem’s not for lack of trying
Cause you do
Just that you’re at your best when you’re lyin’
Now you’re standing here
Saying things you think I wanted to hear
But you’ve got it all wrong
I’ve already moved on my dear

You’re my type of guy, I guess
If I was stuck in East Northumberland High
For the rest of my life
But people change
Thank God I did
Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you now
Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you

When you’re standing near me
I don’t see so clearly
The feelings are still so palpable
But when I take two steps away
It sheds some light on my day
Yeah, you can’t go back
It’s all in the past
Guess you gotta laugh at it

You’re my type of guy, I guess
If I was stuck in East Northumberland High
For the rest of my life
But people change
Thank God I did
If there's some confusion
let me tell you
your just delusional
get a clue cause people change
Thank God I did [x3]


Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you now
Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you

Just because I liked you back then
Doesn’t mean I like you now
Rock 'n' Roll

    this song makes me think of two friends that used to be together, and then broke up, are still friends, the guy wants to get back together, but the girl doesn't want to have him... that's what i think of this song. XOXOXO
