Oh, tonight I'm feeling fine
I'm alone, just wasting time
No Friday movie nights
Or romantic candle lights

I'm just having conversations
With the thoughts in my head
All I hear are angels crying
Oh, won't they just sing instead
It would be wrong for me to say

I don't need that girl by my side
I don't need that girl in my life
I don't want to talk it out
Or hold her when she cries

I don't want to say she's my kind
I don't want to say that she's mine
I don't want to tell her that
I love her more than life
More than life, Yeah
Love her more than life
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Honestly, this won't do
How is she doing?
I tell myself I'm feeling swell
But I know I'm such a fool

I could take it as a new beginning
But you know I don't feel that way
Who will take all this pain away?
I know it's wrong for me to say

I don't need that girl by my side
I don't need that girl in my life
I don't want to talk it out
Or hold her when she cries

I don't want to say she's my kind
I don't want to say that she's mine
I don't want to tell her that
I love her more than life
More than life, Yeah
Love her more than life
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Talk about a sin
Was the day I walked into the other side
I would run back in
I wouldn't waste no time
I know it's wrong for me to say

I don't need that girl by my side
I don't need that girl in my life
I don't want to talk it out
Or hold her when she cries

I don't want to say she's my kind
I don't want to say that she's mine
I don't want to tell her that
I love her more than life
More than life, Yeah
Love her more than life
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Song MeaningFrom Wong Fu Productions website:

    "“That Girl” is basically about trying to convince yourself that you don’t need to be with someone to be happy. While some succeed and move on quickly, others dwell and heal at a slower pace. Whatever the case, the thoughts, emotions and memories we experience during this time are heartwrenchingly powerful and real."

    General CommentThis song is really good my boyfriend found it randomly i think it means that he just broke up with his girl friend and he wants to be with her and he wishes that he could go back and fix it and talk it all out.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy falling in love with a girl he never expected to be with. He tries to fight it and deny it but his heart overrules his thoughts. He can't reason away the fact that he loves her.

    General Commentthis song has many meanings,
    but I think the general, overall meaning is what rainage said in that it's about a guy who likes a girl but he does not want to accept it.

    General CommentHe broke up with a girl, but he regrets it ever so deeply.

    "Talk about a sin

    I don't need that girl by my side"

    My InterpretationI think it's about a girl who left him, and he's trying to convince himself he doesn't need her, though he still loves her. And he keeps thinking about what he could have done differently to keep her.

    Memoryi love this song!!! i was introduced to it on my cousin's mp3 and i just got kinda obsessed with the lyrics because i had just been in a break up. and then after 3 years, david pops out with an awesome music video for it. ahh... the lyrics are beautifully painful and has an introverted sadness that i believe many people can relate to after such a complicated situation. i'm going to go watch the music video now.

    My InterpretationI think it's more about falling for a girl but wanting to let her go since it hurts too much. Great song.
