She’s cold and she’s cruel
But she knows what she’s doing
She pushed me in the pool
At our high school reunion
She’s laughs at my dreams
But I dream about her laughter
Strange as it seems
She’s the one I’m after

Cause she’s bittersweet
She knocks me off my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
She’s a mystery
She’s too much for me
But I keep coming back for more
She’s just the girl I’m lookin for

She can’t keep a secret for more than an hour
She runs on 100 proof attitude power
And the more she ignores me the more I adore her
What can I do? I’d do anything for her

Cause she’s bittersweet
She knocks me off my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
She’s a mystery
She’s too much for me
But I keep coming back for more
She’s just the girl I’m lookin for

The way she sees it’s me, on her caller id
She won’t pick up the phone
She’d rather be alone
I can’t give up just yet
Cause every word she’s ever said
Is still ringing in my head (still ringing in my head)

She’s cold and she’s cruel
But she knows what she’s doing
Knows just what to say
So my whole day is ruined

Cause she’s bittersweet
She knocks me off my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
She’s a mystery
She’s too much for me
But I keep coming back for more
Because she’s bittersweet
She knocks me off my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
She’s a mystery
She’s too much for me
But I keep coming back for more
Oh I keep coming back for more
She’s just the girl I’m looking for (just the girl I’m lookin for)
I’m lookin for
I’m lookin for
Just the girl I’m lookin for

    General CommentI don't care what anyone says- this song is fucking amazing, None of my friends like it because they say it's too pop-laced, but I don't care! The Click Five kicks complete ass. :)

    General CommentI love this song.
    Ironically it describes almost every relationship or crush I've ever had. Gotta love the girls who're cold on the outside and warm on the inside.
    Actually normally people are attracted to things that seem impossible to have i.e. someone who ignores them and such. not so strange at all.

    Awesome typical depiction of human irony.

    General CommentI love this song. It kind of reminds me of Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus. It's an awesome song, and it's always the way. We always want what we could never have.

    General CommentIt's such a cute song. I can't wait until their album comes out. It is really popish, but you have to love it. Everything in the song is so true..Like "And the more she ignores me the more I adore her." The song is pretty much self-explanatory...The girl ignores the guy that loves her the most. LOL.. Sounds like what I did...and now he's my boyfriend.

    General CommentI agree, the meaning is quite self-explanatory, but it also sorta seems that the girl isn't ignoring him but is spurning him instead. She knows that he loves her, but she tries to get as far away from him as possible. "The way she sees it’s me, on her caller id, She won’t pick up the phone, She’d rather be alone"
