"I Met A Girl" as written by and Brendan Harney Ricky Brennan....
I met a girl I'd like to know better
but I'm already with someone

I met a girl I'd like to know better
but I'm already with someone

Everyone stands on the corner
promiscuously
Looking like something to fight and
for something to beat
Did anyone else see that girl who
was pulling away
Like if she pulled off to the side
I'd have something to say

[Chorus]
I met a girl I'd like to know better
But I'm already with someone
I met a girl I'd like to know better
But I'm already with someone

And you've got permission to see
other men while you sleep
And we wage perpetual war for
perpetual peace
One says hey what gives with you
The other says
hey what gives with you
It's this pace that gets to you all right

[Chorus]

And it's so so long
When you're so so wrong

We interweave so much that we've
lost a bit of solid ground
All for a kiss the things that we miss
are leveling out
And I waste my time question it drag my heels a bit
Forever pressures me
now I want to be
Wrapped in rhythm soul space and
rock and roll
Nothing appeals to me like bottoming
out
And I erase time sleep a bit smoke
the rest of it
because time don't mean a thing without

[Chorus]

    General Commentevery guy has felt this way, and its not shavanistic (cuz every girl has to), super catchy and is a song i listen to very often. last stanza contains most meaning, not hard to get.

    General CommentThe lyrics here aren't quite complete. Right before the chorus is repeated the second time, they say "I said" and before the third "she said" which might significantly change the tone of the song - with all the words, it sounds like neither the singer nor the girl he's with are entirely happy in their relationship.

    General CommentTo me, this song has a cheery disposition, like one you'd listen to whilst driving to the beach with your best friends, lipsyncing in the car. But, back to reality, the song is saying that they are interested in someone other than who they are with; in all honesty, that kind of predicament isn't cheery at all, but a tricky spot to be in. It comes off happy and light-hearted, but then again, looking deeper, its not.
