He is sensible and so incredible
And all my single friends are jealous
He says everything I need to hear and it's like
I couldn't ask for anything better
He opens up my door and I get into his car
And he says you look beautiful tonight
And I feel perfectly fine

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And it's 2am and I'm cursing your name
You're so in love that you act insane
And that's the way I loved you
Breakin' down and coming undone
It's a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that's the way I loved you

He respects my space
And never makes me wait
And he calls exactly when he says he will
He's close to my mother
Talks business with my father
He's charming and endearing
And I'm comfortable

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And it's 2am and I'm cursing your name
You're so in love that you act insane
And that's the way I loved you
Breakin' down and coming undone
It's a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that's the way I loved you

He can't see the smile I'm faking
And my heart's not breaking
Cause I'm not feeling anything at all
And you were wild and crazy
Just so frustrating intoxicating
Complicated, got away by some mistake and now

I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
It's 2am and I'm cursing your name
I'm so in love that I acted insane
And that's the way I loved you
Breaking down and coming undone
It's a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that's the way I loved you oh, oh

And that's the way I loved you oh, oh
Never knew I could feel that much
And that's the way I loved you

    Shes saying how a perfect relationship isn't perfect. Like, I think she means, she wants the relationship where you have to work for it. To stay together. If you have a hard relationship and you can stay together it proves how much you must love each other to work to stay together. If you had a hard relationship and he stays there through everything he must really love you. He didn't just dump you for something easier.

    I agree with camiheinricher also. She has the perfect relationship, but she misses her old relationship. Shes found the perfect relationship but its not satisfying.

    A lot of girls are like that. They don't want the perfect guys. They want the rough ones. They want the passion that you get with a guy like that. That you fight with.

    Example: Makeup sex. After people get in a fight you hear them say they had the best sex of their lives!! Fighting brings on passion! You want to makeup for what you fought over. You want them to forget and forgive you. You put all your passion into satisfying them! Thats why people want the rough relationships, because it brings out the passion more. If the guys is perfect does everything like in the song, then, he becomes predictable and boring. Know one likes who there parents want them to like its a fact of nature. If your parents like the person then they must in some way relate to that person. No one wants a boyfriend that is like their parents!! Seriously.

    But, I completely love and understand this song. I would rather have the hard relationship then the perfect boring one. You want the passion, not the plainness!!

    I love this song. She found the perfect guy basically and she's not happy, because she misses her old relationship and the mixed up feelings it brought.

    Sorta like chosing between the Right guy and the Perfect guy.

    She wants her old relationship, because she missed the craziness and silliness and just being in love which she is obviosly not in her new realtionship.

    i think all these comments are true ...
    so yeah, just to add a comment:
    notice the past tense 'loved', it suggests that she understands that its the past now, and she is moving on, cos the way she loves now is different to the way she 'loved' the other guy. shes accepted that it can never be the same love between the two guys.

    I remember my guy best friend from this song. The both of us have never been in a relationship being more than best friends.
    He was wild, crazy and insane. He turns my world upside down and turn it all around. We're so comfortable with each other. We tease each other and sometimes I thought if we could be more than friends. But my guy best friend always tells me about his dream girl, so I didn't asked him but still, I hoped. Until it came to a part that I thought I needed to let it go.
    I searched for another guy, the second guy was perfect. He was everything I wanted and it turns out he likes me too.
    But I don't like the second guy as much like the way I loved my guy best friend.
