I think you'd like my new hair
I cut it when you weren't there
that pieces of us everywhere
were falling down

My bed is now a girl's bed
Pink flowers under my head
and pillows on your side instead
of you

'Cause that's what single girls do
don't think about you

I'm reading books on meditation
Praying for my heart's salvation
I've got the motivation
to be a free girl now

I've gone drinking with the guy down the hall
put up a new color on my bare walls
I'm so damn busy
after all

'Cause that's what single girls do
don't think about you

I keep trying
I keep trying
to make my way back to the light where I belong
But God keeps lying
God keeps lying
saying this is for the best and nothing here is wrong

But I"m still thinking about you

I think you'd like my new hair
I cut it like I didn't care
that pieces of me everywhere
were falling down

One more glass of wine
before I turn off the lights
this time I'll be fine
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

    General Commentthis to me is a girl trying to convince herself that she's over her exboyfriend and she isn't, "But I'm still thinking about you." very simply put and i love her voice.

    i cant believe there are no comments!

    General CommentSaw her perform this last night --- and it was mesmerizing. It's definitely about a girl desperately trying to cling onto her resolve to MOVE ON from a failed relationship.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who truly wants to get back together with the guy, and hopes he does too, but knows that he doesn't want to.

    General CommentI believe this song is about a girl trying to move on after the death of her boyfriend (or fiance), there is no bitterness or accusation in her lyrics addressing "you" (the boyfriend). I believe she is trying to move on after the loss of her love, and she only sounds angry with god "But God keeps lying
    God keeps lying, saying this is for the best and nothing here is wrong." Here is on earth where she was left, alone.
