You got your brand ne w house,
You got your brand new room,
You got the pictures one the wall, and I'm not in any of them,
I've got your letters stored,
And space to fill,
I've got a box I never threw away, and probably never will,

I won't say your name without a smile,

Wasted nights,
We feared our home,
I drove you anywhere you'd want to go,
On nameless streets,
You told me you loved me,
Forever and ever again,

I kept the ticket stubs,
I got our last playbill,
You've got stories for the big screen, and you bought "If There's A Will,"
I carry my own life,
With my heart intact,
Like those times I used to spend with you are never coming back,

I'll sit another day, remembering,

Wasted nights,
We feared our home,
I drove you anywhere you'd want to go,
On nameless streets,
You told me you loved me,
Forever and ever,
Were you the one for me? (Were you the one for me?)
Were you the one for me? (Were you the one for me?)

There was once, this chance, to share the world with just one girl,
Cause she was perferct, she was honest,
She broke my heart, when she broke her promise,

There was once, this chance, to share the world with just one girl,
Cause she was perferct, she was honest,
She broke my heart, when she broke her promise,

(Wasted nights, we feared our home, I drove you anywhere you'd want to go)
There was once, this chance, to share the world with just one girl,
(On nameless streets, you told me you loved me)
Cause she was perferct, she was honest,
She broke my heart, when,
Forever and forever again,

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a girl I once loved... and yes, her name was Brittany. How fitting

    General Commenti think this is probably about a guy's first real girlfriend...but after it was over he recognized that it'll still always be special

    General Commenti think britt was an ex-girlfriend of the singer, pretty obvious. and most of the song is the singer looking back and remembering the good times they had when they were together. but in going through all these memories he starts to realize that maybe she wasnt really meant to be with him after all. "were you the one for me?"

    when they were dating she probably promised that she'd always love him. "you told me you loved me forever and again." but then they broke up, she moved away and forgot about him. "she broke my heart when she broke my promise."

    General Commenti know "britt". it's a very sad story between the two of them. you're all pretty right for the most part, but don't worry. it was definitely for the best. "britt" turned into a jerk.

    General Commentthe name brittany seems to always be the girl gone wrong who the guy misses. i wonder if thats true for me (my name is britt) basically its about a guy thinking about this girl who screwed him over after he treated her like a complete angel by doing all these nice things for her and loving her.
