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 cant do it because your afraid . And whenever you see her with that man u die in the inside because your wishing to be him at the moment and u want her to know that u can do everything to her , and that you want her to be yours forever .
