VERSE 1
I met a girl named Tara
And she lived in the heart of America
She liked black caddies,
Listened to Puff Daddy
Danced until her legs were sore.

She worked around the corner
At a diner with a grouchy owner
And her boyfriend Shane he dates another girl named Katie,
He loves her definitely maybe

Don't think I can take it,
Wake me when it's over..
so far away,
I wish that it was closer
I see you everyday,
I'm too scared to go over.
I wonder what she'd say,
I barely even know her

CHORUS
And how much longer
Will this keep getting stronger?
I wonder what shes doing
When I'm singing myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker,
So seeya later.
I wonder when you'll realise that she means
A lot more to me

VERSE 2
I saw you in the hallway
When my last class was just over
It was Friday, school was out tonight,
everything seems to be alright.
I said,
Yo, are you goin to the party at the cove?
She said,
He's pickin me up at 6 again,
and I don't wanna disapoint my boyfriend.

CHORUS
And how much longer
Will this keep getting stronger?
I wonder what shes doing
When I'm singing myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker,
So seeya later
I wonder when you'll realise that she means
A lot more to me

VERSE 3
And shes starin at his picture hangin in her locker,
Shes tellin all the girls about all the things that he bought her.
I saw what really happened all those time he went for water,
When we were at the movie theatre
Watchin Harry Potter.
He had his hands on
Every single girl he laid his eyes on.
To break it to ya,
He's a pylon.
And even when he kissed her,
He was lookin over starin at her sister.

CHORUS
And how much longer
Will this keep getting stronger?
I wonder what shes doing
When I'm singing myself to sleep
Cause he's a faker,
So seeya later.
I wonder when you'll realise that she means
A lot more to me

VERSE 1 (PARTLY REPEATED)
I met a girl named Tara
And she lived in the heart of America
She liked black caddies,
Listened to Puff Daddy
danced until her legs were sore.

She worked around the corner
At a diner with a grouchy owner
And her boyfriend Shane he dates another girl named Katie,
He loves her definitely maybe

    General CommentYa this song is really cute and catchy. i think it's about a guy who likes this girl alotttt but he's never really talked to her. He knows she has a bf, which is intimidating, but also that said bf is cheating o0n her. He really wants to tell her how he feels, but he knows she's too in love with some guy who doesn't deserve her.
