Ooh, no
Yeah, yeah

She's got green eyes and she's 5'5"
Long brown hair all down her back
Cadillac truck so the hell what is so special about that
She used to model, she's done some acting
So she weighs a buck o 5
And I guess that she's alright if perfection's what you like

Ooh, ooh, and I'm not jealous, no I'm not
Ooh, ooh, I just want everything she's got
Ooh, ooh, you look at her so amazed
I remember way back when you used to look at me that way

Tell me what makes her so much better than me (what makes her so much better than me)
What makes her just everything that I can never be (I can never be)
What makes her your every dream and fantasy.
Because I can remember when it was me.

And now you don't feel the same
I remember you would shiver every time I said your name
You said nothing felt as good as when you gaze into my eyes
Now you don't care I'm alive
How did we let the fire die

Ooh, ooh, and I'm not jealous, no I'm not
Ooh, ooh, I just want everything she's got
Ooh, ooh, you look at her so amazed
I remember way back when you used to look at me that way

Ohh, What makes her so much better than me (what makes her so much better than me)
What makes her just everything that I can never be (I can never be)
What makes her your every dream and fantasy
Because I can remember when it was me

That made you smile (me)
That made you laugh
Me that makes you happier than you have ever been, oh me
That was your world (me)
Your perfect girl
Nothing about me has changed
That's why I'm here wondering

What makes her so much better than me (what makes her so much better than me)
What makes her just everything that I can never be (I can never be)
What makes her your every dream and fantasy
Because I can't remember when it was me

What makes her so much better than me (what makes her so much better than me)
What makes her just everything that I can never be (I can never be)
What makes her your every dream and fantasy
Because I can't remember when it was me

When it was me
When it was me
When it was me

    this song is about a girl who can't understand why her ex is treating his new girl the same way that she was treated. she doesn't understand why he won't come back to her knowing that they would have the same relationship that they had earlier. I can definitly relate to this song... what makes the love of my life's new girl different from me.. plus i would treat him better than her and i would love him more than she ever could...
