One song about a girl
Can't breathe when I'm around her
I wait here every day
In case she'll scratch the surface
She'll never notice

I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words
About a girl

(WHOA! )

Last night I knew what to say
But you weren't there to hear it
These lines so well rehearsed
Tongue tied and overloaded
You never notice

I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words
About a girl

I'm not in love
This is not your song
I'm not gonna waste these words
About a girl

To be loved, to be loved
What more could you ask for?
To be loved, to be loved
Everyone wants
To be loved, to be loved
What more could you ask for?
To be loved, to be loved
Everyone...

I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words...

I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words
About a girl

I'm not in love
This is not your song
I'm not gonna waste these words
About a girl

    I ike this song because he's pretty much saying he doesn't wanna be in love with someone who never really notices him, and/or is easily controled... but he can't help it, he's falling and she's the only one to save him. *)

    This song is about denial, strait up.
    But you have to think about it from "her" point of view, giving that up to a boy, letting him tell you he loves you gives up all your power of indepences. Maby "she" doesn't want to give that small piece of herself up to some guy that could do whatever with it.
    Just trying to give another twist to things.

    Everyone's already got the answer as to what this song is about. It's an ironic song because the song is about not being in love, but clearly it is about being in love. It's a denial song. Perfect for anyone who claims not to be in love because their afraid of rejection and wants to deny their feelings.

    i agree, i think he really likes her and she has no clue, and he's saying "i'm not in love, this is not my heart" trying to be funny or whatever, because he's really saying that he is, and he just wants to tell her but he doesn't know how because she doesn't notice.

    I think this song is about him being in love, but she doesn't notice him. And he's like in denial that the song is about her when it really is. He just doesn't wanna feel stupid for loving someone who doesn't love him back. This song is TOTALLY about a girl ;p
    I love it!
