Hey, oh
Let me tell you no
Oh baby

Trying to decide, trying to decide
If I, really want to go out tonight
I never used to go out, without you
I'm not sure I remember how to

I'm gonna be late, gonna be late
But, all my girls gonna have to wait
Cause, I don't know if I like my outfit
I tried everything in my closet

Nothing feels right when I'm not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off, cause I feel a fool
Trying to dress up, when I'm missing you
I'ma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball with something Hanes
In bed I lay, with nothing but, your T-Shirt on
Oh, with nothing but, your T-Shirt on

Hey, gotta be strong, gotta be strong
But, I'm really hurting now that your gone
I thought maybe I'd do some shopping
But, I didn't get pass the door and
Now I don't know, now I don't know
If I'm ever gonna let you go
And I couldn't even leave my apartment
I'm stripped down, torn up about it

Nothing feels right when I'm not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off, cause I feel a fool
Trying to dress up when I'm missing you
I'ma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball and something Hanes
In bed I lay, with nothing but your T-Shirt on
Oh, with nothing but, your T-Shirt on

Trying to decide, trying to decide
If I really want to go out tonight
I couldn't even leave my apartment
I'm stripped down, torn up about it

Nothing feels right when I'm not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off, cause I feel a fool
Trying to dress up when I'm missing you
I'ma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball and something Hanes
In bed I lay

Hey, hey

Nothing feels right when I'm not with you
Sick of this dress and these Jimmy Choos
Taking them off, cause I feel a fool
Trying to dress up when I'm missing you
I'ma step out of this lingerie
Curl up in a ball and something Hanes
In bed I lay, with nothing but your T-Shirt on
Oh, with nothing but, your T-Shirt on

Let me tell you know
With nothing but, your T-Shirt on

    I think this song means that the only thing that's keeping her from completely losing it and wanting her man is his t-shirt that she's wearing...I personally think that her man died and so she feels like she can't do anything without him...I love this song so much...

    when i first heard this song..for me the song is kinda flirt because of the line In that I lay, with nothing but your t-shirt on...but then when i tried to listen again the whole song, i realized that the meaning is so painful, i think that the girl was left by his man because the man died..every time that she wears te t shirt of his man, she can feel the presence of him

    Obviously she's broken up with her boyfriend and she misses him. However, on a deeper sense she's always dressed up in something beautiful, flashy, and expensive. That represents her normal life. But when she's with him he makes her feel normal and she doesn't have to be flashy and expensive, so she just wants to wear a t-shirt because she only be who she was with him. And its his t-shirt because like she said she wants to be with him.
