Let me tell you a story bout' a boy and a girl,
A very different version than you've ever heard.
Ok so I'm lying but all I'm trying to say,
This isn't about the one that got away.

Watch it from your ivory tower,
Paint the sky grey, like a coward.
How long you got?
I can go for hours.
A sweet little tale that ended sour,
My words will ring in your ears.

Take my advice and leave right now.
You can't find a way to sell yourself,
To someone who cares,
To someone desperate.

First came along my friends were dubious,
She cared for the stage, not who she was with.
I brushed it off and hit the road,
Only to hear she's in the other's 'pose'.

It was the end of summer in 2009,
I wasn't really looking but what did I find?
A golden girl with golden hair,
When I was with her everybody stared.
And I couldn't believe my luck had changed.
And I asked so nice but I 'wouldn't stay'

Take my advice and leave right now.
You can't find a way to sell yourself,
To someone who cares,
To someone desperate.

'Beggars can't be choosers',
I wouldn't choose you,
I've got better things to do with my time
I will bear in mind,
What was in their 'side'

(Na na na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na,
Na na na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na)

She said who do you, she said who do you,
She said who do you, she said who, DO YOU! ?
Who, do you? Who do you?
I said who do you, I said who do you.

Who do you, who do you, think you are,
Who do you, who do you, think you are,
Who do you, who do you, think you are,
Who do you, who do you, think, you, are!

    I think this song is about him finding a girl who loved him more than he loved her, and he got sick of her. Basically he broke her heart because he didn't care about her, and she gets mad at him.

    "only to hear she's in the other's clothes" - just saying. I really like this song, it's my favourite off the album. It's so upbeat and just lovely to listen to. His vocals are incredible throughout the whole album! I like the new you me at six sound.

    I think that the song's about a girl that's desperate for a boyfriend, but the boy isn't interested, and ends up yelling at her to get out, and that she shouldn't even bother.

    I think this song is mainly about the one that was pushed away and putting on a show for everyone around you...
