"Girlfriend" as written by Alicia J Augello-cook, Jermaine Mauldin Dupri, Raymond Jones, Robert F Diggs and Josh Thompson....
May be silly for me to feel this way about you and her
'Cause I know she's been such a good friend
I know she has helped you through

Talkin' late on the phone
Every night you've been callin'
Private moments alone
And your heart soon be fallin'
And I know she's a friend
But I can't shake the feeling
That I could be losing your heart

I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
Although she's just a girl that is your friend
I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
She shares a special part of you

You said that she's one well to see
How deep you're in love with me
And intentions were not to get in between
But I see possibilities

And you say that you feel
I'm the best thing in your life
And I know it's real, I see it in your eyes
There's no reason for me to even feel this way
I know you just enjoy her company

I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
Although she's just a girl that is your friend
I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
She shares a special part of you

    General Commentokay. the lyrics are most definitelly wrong. These are the lyrics from the booklet from the cd.

    You're really gone, girlfriend
    the dryers on, amen.
    and I'm alone for the first time.
    You left a sock, girlfriend.
    where's the pair broken?
    Are you aware that I'm missing you?

    But I can't run to you no more
    to catch me when I'm falling.
    I know I have to let you go
    but I will not be broken.
    But keep the slowly fading memories.

    This place is strange, empty.
    You did your time, plenty.
    And the walls are bare where your
    pictures hung.

    But I can't call you up no more, and no
    we can't just be friends.
    I know it's time to let you go,
    and I will not be broken.

    For every tear, a lesson learned.
    Every good time golden, but
    now it's time to let you go and
    I will not be broken, but keep the
    slowly fading memories.

    I definitely agree that it's about a break up. Probably from a relationship that dragged on, or possibly they took eachother for granted. I think it's moreso saying that he misses the relationship, but not necessarily the girl.

    General CommentI was so surprised to see no comments on this song! I find it's such a soulful song.. it's kinda confusing coz you don't know who broke up with who or if they did it together... but all I know is that it describes in a happy way a harsh break up. A great song to listen to months after your break up.

    General Commentlmao @ "You love to suck, good friend"...but anyway. The best lyrics by far are "But I can't call you up no more, and no we can't just be friends." Incredibly sad, and yet amazingly sincere.

    General CommentI LOVE this song. Gives me the chills every time I hear it. It really helped me out after I broke up with my girlfriend. Basically, to me, the song is about knowing the breakup had to come to an end (He makes how the relationship ended ambiguous on purpose, I think) even though both people still loved eachother. For him, as for, it's too painful to just try to be friends when you know something more is there. So as much as he loves her as a friend, he can't keep contact because it would be too painful. What's interesting about this song is the narrator is fully aware of this, and aware of how bad it sucks, but he also realizes that it has to be done. It's the "I wish it didn't have to end, but god damn that was good" stage of a breakup, exemplified by, "Every good time, golden". In short, he knows he'll eventually grow and overcome the heartache, and it will make him stornger, but right now it's still difficult.

    General CommentSomeone correct these, they're horribly wrong. Anyway, yes, it's about a breakup, apparently written in late 2000 or early 2001, and went through at least one very different draft before becoming what it is now. It's so much better live.

    General CommentThe more I listen to this song, the more I think the background vocal says "I walk away, for now" which changes the meaning a bit. They both love each other, and cherish what they have, but for whatever reason, right now, what they have needs to end, and he needs to let her go. He hopes maybe they may get back together some day, but right now they need to be apart.
