"Just Friends" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
I saw you there last night
Standing in the dark
You were acting so in love
With your hand upon his heart
But you were just friends
At least that's what you said

Now I know better from his fingers in your hair
I'll forgive for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one
I've had other options too
But all I want is you

Girl, your body fits me like a glove
Ands you shower me with words of love
While you were just friends
At least that's what you said

Now I know better from his fingers in your hair
I'll forgive you for what you've don't
If you say that I'm the one

It's not my style to lay it on the line
But you don't leave me with a choice this time
Why weren't you true?
You know I trusted you
When you were just friends
At least that's what you said

Now I know better from his fingers in you hair
I'll forgive you for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one
You were just friends
At least that's what you said

Not I know better from his fingers in your hair
I'll forgive you for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one
I'll forgive you for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one
I'll forgive you for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one
I'll forgive you

    General CommentThis song relates to my last relationship. I was dating a boy who had a pretty good girl friend. They would always say that we are just friends and me the idiot would trust the both of them. Then one night I went out with my girl friends and saw them out together being more then friendly (to say the least). I cared about him so much and all I really wanted to hear was I'm sorry and you are the one I want to be with. Gavin is telling that story in his song, "Just Friends". He is saying I love you and you cheated on me. Just say you want me to be the one and I'll forgive you.

    General CommentI really wish I knew Gavin as a person. He must be really down to earth and EXTREMELY caring and forgiving.

    General CommentThis song shows what love can do. Seems that Gavin caught a girl acting "friendly" with another guy, little too much so. But even seeing this, he says that "I'll forgive you for what you've done
    If you say that I'm the one." He obviously cares deeply for this girl, pretty sweet.

    Gavin rocks my socks!

    General CommentIm in love with this song! I pretty much agree with everyone, its about him being in love with this girl that cheated on him- but he still loves her and will forgive her.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorite by Gavin but in my anti love approach he should be hating her but all he seems to do is be in love. That takes a lot of passion and forgiveness to still feel the same about someone who ruined a perfectly good relationship...
