Kris Allen – Girl Across The Room lyrics

He's got everything I ever wanted
Cause all I ever wanted was you.
He must have known what to say
Cause God knows I didn't know what to do.
Thinking about checking myself into the institution
Cause I can't get you out of my mind
It's like I'm Leonardo and I'm painting Mona Lisa
But I can't even call her mine.
He must have sent you flowers
He must have asked you to dance
From where I stood,
He must have done all the things that a good man should.

I never thought that he was the one you'd end up with
Cause I thought you would end up with me.
I guess I come from the school of love
Where the teacher says it comes for free
But did you know, I still remember when you smiled at me
With a big red coffee cup
And I realize we never talked but from what I saw
I thought that we fell in love.
But he must have took you out, yeah
He must have held your hand
From where I stood
He must have done all the things that a good man should.

Yesterday, I saw your picture in the paper
Guess you finally went and took his eyes in anger.
So I keep swimming in my sea of fish
But there is always one thing I always
I probably should have sent you flowers
I probably should have let you in
I probably should have told you girl
That I love that dress you're wearing
From where I stood
He must have done all the things that a good man should.
