Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na Na

He takes your hand, I die a little
I watch your eyes, and I'm in riddles
Why can't you look at me like that?

When you walk by, I try to say it
But then I freeze, And never do it
My tongue gets tied, the words get trapped.

I hear the beat of my heart getting louder whenever I'm near you

But I see you with him, slow dancing.
Tearing me apart, Cause you don't see.
Whenever you kiss him, I'm breaking,
Oh how I wish that was me.

Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na Na

He looks at you the way that I would.
Does all the things I know that I could.
If only time could just turn back.

Cause I got three little words that I've always been dying to tell you

But I see you with him, slow dancing.
Tearing me apart, Cause you don't see.
Whenever you kiss him, I'm breaking.
Oh how I wish that was me

With my hands on your waist, While we dance in the moonlight.
I wish it was me, That you call later on Cause you wanna say good night.

Cause I see you with him, slow dancing.
Tearing me apart Cause you don't see.

But I see you with him, slow dancing.
Tearing me apart, Cause you don't see.
Whenever you kiss him, I'm breaking.
Oh how I wish
Oh how I wish
Oh how I wish, that was me.

Oh how I wish, that was me.

    It means, that your lover is loving someone els and you want to tell her the you love her but you just can't do it because your afraid. And whenever you see her with that man you die in the inside because your wishing to be him at the moment and you want her to know that you can do everything to her, and that you want her to be yours forever.

    That's discribe me. I have a crush well he doesn't have any girlfriend but. Whenever I near him my heart skip a beat. And I never told him how I felt and now he's moving from my school and I will never say ' I love you' to him. I'm dying inside.

    You know what the meaning is? The meaning is seeing the one you love with someone else, and believe me I have done that many times and I am doing it now. I am heartbroken, and I seriously just want all this heartache to be over. I hate seeing him with someone else, it breaks my heart and it breaks me! : '(

    I really like this girl, ashlee lavia. She is the most beautiful person in the world. I would sit in bed at night and think of what to say and how to tell her how I feel. This went on for weeks! One day I finally got the guts to tell her. I was walking up to her.

    Getting keen.

    Almost there.

    And.

    Bam! Out of the blue sam johnston comes along and says hey ashlee want to go out with me?

    She said yes. :(

    The moment I heard the word yes I knew. I was too late.
    Now I have to sit at school everyday and watch them, together.
    And do you want to know the worst part.

    They are happy.

    I could never tear them apart because I know that would hurt sam just as much as it is me now. When I see ashlee smiling, it feels like I am absorbing every ounce of happiness in the world. I would never ruin that. I now hate myself for being such a coward.

    So I think the moral of the story is.

    You snooze you lose. :(

    I felt really related to this song. It's like what's happening to me. Loving someone who has someone already it his heart which always keeps me breaking. And the prom is already coming to think that they would see them slow dancing that tears me which he can't even see. To think that I really wish he would put his arm around my waist then we dance in the moonlight then he would kiss me. Which would never happen :((but oh how I wish that girl was me: '(
