"Holly... I'm the One" as written by James Bourne, Pete Woodroffe and Charlie Grant....
I'm hiding in a bush outside your window
I'm feeling sick and numb
Fed all my best lines to my best friend
So he could be the one
But I'm a jerk, because it worked
And I've just realized what I've done

Guess I'll never be the guy that gets the girl
Set it up so that he could rock your world
Promise me when you scream you fake it

Holly I'm the one you should be dating
Seeing him with you is so frustrating
I taught him everything he knows
You fell for every single line I gave him
I know, that I'm dumb
But Holly, I'm the one

So maybe I should just go home now
And let you have your fun
It doesn't make it any easier
I live across the street but one
If that clown, lets you down
Holly you know where to come

Yes I could've been the guy to get the girl
Yes I could've been the one to rock your world
But I'm not so I've got to face it

Holly I'm the one you should be dating
Seeing him with you is so frustrating
I taught him everything he knows
He's just a fraud 'cause I'm the guy who made him
I know, that I'm dumb
But Holly, I'm the one

I can't believe you're at my door
'Cause he confessed that he's been cheating
Suddenly a chance for me
To tell the secret I've been keeping

[Repeat: x6]
I am the one

You said you valued his integrity, and honesty is rare
He swore to you he'd never cheat again, he cried and said he cared
Well he's a jerk, because it worked..

Holly I'm the one you should be dating
Seeing him with you is so frustrating
I taught him everything he knows
He used to be my best friend now I hate him
And it sucks that he won, 'cause he's a dick and you're amazing
And I know, that I'm dumb
But Holly, I'm the one

Holly I'm the one

    General CommentI love this song.. and I think their album is brilliant!

    Although 'Son of Dork' is the worst name for a band ever. And if you want to buy one of their ringtones you have to type SOD1 or SOD2.. hehe.. crap name but great band, in my opinion...

    General Commentson of dork isn't the best name for a band but their album is a prime example of the social ladder in youth today. you have your popular people who are the dumbest people you will ever meet, the guy who thinks he can screw any girl but doesn't think about conscequences (dunno how to spell!), the total wannabe 'goth' who is really pathetic and in this song the back stabbing best friend who takes the girl! we could learn a lot from the band with a crap name....

    General CommentRight, if you know jack Johnson i can prove to you why this song is lame and this band stinks! Both these songs are about the same thing judging by what daughterofdarkness. However, one is a masterpice and one is a pile of shit.

    POSTERS/Jack Johnson

    "Lookin at himself but wishin he was someone else
    because the posters on the wall that don’t look like him at all.
    So he ties it up he tucks it in he pulls it back he gives a grin,
    laughin at himself because he knows he aint loved at all.
    He gets his courage from the can, it makes him feel like a man
    because he’s lovin all the ladies but the ladies don’t love him at all.
    When he’s not drunk he’s only stuck on himself,
    and then he has the nerve to say he needs a descent girl.

    Lookin at herself but wishing she was someone else
    because the body of the doll that don’t look like hers at all.
    So she drops it on she sucks it in she throws it up and gives a grin,
    laughin at herself because she knows she aint that at all.
    All caught up in the trends well the truth began to bend
    and the next thing you know man there just aint no truth left at all.
    Cause when the pretty girl walks, she walks so proud,
    and when the pretty girl laughs, oh man, she laughs so loud.

    And if it aint this then its that as a matter of fact.
    She hasn’t had a day to relax,
    since she’s lost her ability to think...clearly.

    Well I’m an energetic, apathetic version of another person.
    Check out my outside there aint nothing in here.
    Well I’m a superficial, systematic, music television addict.
    Check out my outsides there aint nothing in here-comes another one,
    just like the other lookin at himself but wishin he was someone else because
    the posters on the wall that don’t look like him,
    ties it up and tucks it in and pulls it back and gives a grin.
    Laughing at himself because he knows he aint loved at all.
    Knows he aint loved at all"
