I don't think that passenger seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
And I count the colors in his eyes

He'll never fall in love
He swears, as he runs his fingers through his hair
I'm laughing 'cause I hope he's wrong
And I don't think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke, I fake a smile
But I know all his favorite songs

And I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He likes to argue
Born on the seventeenth
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him...
I'd lie

He looks around the room
And innocently overlooks the truth
Shouldn't a light go on
Doesn't he know
That I've had him memorized for so long

He sees everything in black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don't let nobody see me wishing he was mine

I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He likes to argue
Born on the seventeenth
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him...
I'd lie

He stands there, then walks away
My God, if I could only say
I'm holding every breath for you

He'd never tell you,
But he can play guitar
I think he can see through
Everything but my heart

First thought when I wake up,
My God, he's beautiful
So I put on my make-up
And pray for a miracle

Yes I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He likes to argue
Oh, and it kills me
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him...
If you ask me if I love him...
I'd lie

    this song is sooo true. when we like a guy, we know a lot of things about them. we know them so well, but when people asks us if we like him, we say "no." haha.^^

    i like this song, A LOT! especially the part "I don't let anybody see me wishing he was mine."

    This song reminds me of my guy best friend...
    He fits almost everything in this song.
    He always argues with me, insults me, mess up my hair and other stuff FRIENDS do.
    We're so comfortable with each other.
    He doesn't know I always think of him all the time and ask myself,
    "Why do we have to be just friends?"
    And whenever he tells me about his dream girl, outside, I support and insult him but really deep inside, I cry and say to myself, "I could never be that girl"
    So, it's kind of sad.
    hmmm...

    This song kinda reminds me of when you're in elementary school, and if you like someone you keep it a secret because you'll get teased if anyone knew. So if someone asked you if you loved somebody... you would lie.
