"Someone That You're With" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
I reside in 209, you're in 208
You moved in last Friday night
And I just couldn't wait
So I tried to call across the hall to ask you out someday
But a lineup formed outside your door
And I was way too late

Well, I'd rather start off slow
This whole thing's like some sort of race
Instead of winning what I want, I'm sitting here in second place

Because somewhere the one I want to be with's with somebody else
Oh god, I want to be that someone that you're with
I want to be that someone that you're with
And I can talk about it all day long till I run out of breath
But I still want to be that someone that you're with
I've got to be that someone that you're with
And I'm pacing by the phone
'Cause I hate to be alone
And if you're out there with him somewhere and just about to kiss
God, I want to be that someone that you're with

Well, I hear your favorite songs you sing along with everyday
And I borrow things that I don't need for conversation sake
Last night I heard your key, it hit your lock at four AM
Instead of being out with me, you must be out with them

Well, I'd rather start off slow
This whole thing's like some sort of race
Instead of winning what I want, I'm sitting here in second place

Because somewhere the one I want to be with's with somebody else
Oh god, I want to be that someone that you're with
I want to be that someone that you're with
And I can talk about it all day long till I run out of breath
But I still want to be that someone that you're with
I've got to be that someone that you're with
And I'm pacing by the phone
'Cause I hate to be alone
And if you're out there with him somewhere and just about to kiss
God, I want to be that someone that you're with

Well, somewhere the one I want to be with's with somebody else
Oh god, I want to be that someone that you're with
And I can talk about it all day long till I run out of breath
But I still want to be that someone that you're with
I've got to be that someone that you're with
And I'm pacing by the phone
'Cause I hate to be alone
And if you're out there with him somewhere, and just about to kiss
God, I've got to be that someone that...
I want to be that someone that...
I've got to be that someone that you're with

    General CommentOkay, I love this song.
    I guess one reason why I like it so much is because I'm in the same predicament as the girl in this song is.......

    It's a guy who wants to be with a girl, yet she's already with someone else.. and she wants to be with him to yet can't.. because she's with someone else..

    Kickass song...

    General Commentyeah i reckon it's pretty obvious what it's about, it's a fairly straight forward song. It's not my favourite from the album but i still love it!

    General CommentI feel like this songs my anthem right now

    The guitar in this song is absolutely amazing, it blew me away the first time I heard it

    "And I can talk about it all day long
    ‘til I run out of breath
    But I still wanna be that
    someone that you’re with"

    I love those lines, cus if you've experianced this type of situation they're so true

    General CommentWell this song is one of my favorites from the album, it really connects alot to me because that is sorta what I'm experimenting right now. I love this girl but she's with someone else.
