I can't believe you did it again
Walked by and took my heart with you
Why did you have to look so good?
Don't you know that I'm trying to hate you
Trying to have a dream without you in it
But how can I put out this fire
When you're the one who lit it

I can't wait for the day I stop pretending
That I'm really ok when I'm not
I want to know how it feels to be
Over you for real
Until I do
I'll keep writing songs about you

I've got a stack of papers so high
And it's all about you baby
Keep thinking maybe I
Can make sense of something crazy
Something I can't get out of my Head
I write your name I write your name
Then I tear it all to shreds

I can't wait for the day I stop pretending
That I'm really ok when I'm not
I want to know how it feels to be
Over you for real
Until I do
I'll keep writing songs about you

And if you ever change your mind
And want me back again
I hope these songs will remind me
Why I shouldn't let you in

I can't wait for the day I stop pretending
That I'm really ok cause I'm not
I want to know how it feels to be
Over you for real
Until I do

I'll just wait for the day
I stop pretending
That I'm really ok when I'm not
I wanna know how it feels to be over you for real
Till I do,
I'll keep writing songs about you

    I think she's wondering how it really feels to move on.. To forget the feelings... But no matter how hard she try she cant go over him.. He still makes her heart skip a beat.. She try to resist but its hard.. So for now she try to express her feelings into songs..

    She love someone and they were best friends but then he let her fall and now she's trying to hate him but she can't. So until she can she'll keep on loving him and writing love songs for/about him.
