"Notice" as written by Benjamin Joseph Ottewell, Ian Thomas Ball, Paul Blackburn, Oliver James Peacock and Thomas William Gray....
I stopped tryin' to write the things I don't like
And I started goin' back to where I'd been before
She said "I don't blame you I'd do the same"
Opportunity knocks knocks knocks open the door
But I think she saw through it
I see through myself
Another chance gone, won't get many more

But I'm not the only guy I know that
I'm not the only guy I know that
You never notice
The only guy I know, well I'm not the only guy I know
That you never notice

I stopped tryin' to write the things I don't like
And I started goin' back to where I'd been before
She said "I don't blame you I'd do the same"
Opportunity knocks knocks knocks open the door
But I think she saw through it
I see through myself
Another chance gone, won't get many more

But that's not the only lie I told you
That's not the only lie I told you
You never notice
The only lie I told you, that's not the only lie I told you
You never notice
The only lie I told you, that's not the only lie I told you
You never notice

I can tell you're in denial, get over it
I can tell you're in denial, get over it
I can tell you're in denial, get over it
I can tell you're in denial

    General Commenthe's longing for a girl who doesn't notice him in that way, if at all.. like many others who admire her. and in the process of seeing only her, he gives up opportunities and fails to notice others..

    i think it's gorgeous.
    it makes you think of a time when you've gone after something so hard because you thought it was the best thing and you may have lost out along the way and never even realised.

    I can tell you're in denial....

    General CommentAm I the only one hearing: "For when the train's gone won't get many more"? (instead of "Another chance...").

    Beautiful song, BTW.

    General CommentWhen I first listened to this song I thought it was this guy breaking up with a girl by explaining he has feelings for someone else. Someone he's had feelings for for a while, but she doesn't notice him or the other guys who like her. And the girl he's dumping is saying she understands, she'd do the same. And he's seeing other girls as opportunity to move on but he let's the opportunities pass. but i wasn't quite sure what they meant by "that's not the only lie I told you" or "I think she saw through it". Or even in that context how opening the door to opportunity would fit because he keeps closing the door and then an idea hit me.

    I think he has given up on trying to stay away from her or see other people
    "I stop trying to write the things I don't like and start going back to where I'd been before"

    and he goes back to her, and is trying to find an opportunity to tell her how he feels, but every time he gets a chance he chickens out.

    "opportunity knocks, knocks, knocks open the door, I think she saw through it, I see through myself, another chance gone, won't get many more"

    and that explains the lie he's talking about. And she's in denial by refusing to see what he's trying to tell her.
