and so i see you from across the room with a guy that looks just like i do, maybe he will be reminding you of me. i've been replaced by a new name and face that looks just like the one that you've been trying to erase.

does he care the way that i did once? i know you don't but part of me still does. he have my qualities, my personality, are you seeing in him now what you first saw in me?

he has what i had and i want that back by my side, with your hand held in mine. i can't just sit back and relax knowing that we can't rewind for a moment in time.

and there's a difference between what is said and what is really meant and he's saying what it takes only to get you in his bed.

does he care the way that i did once? i know you don't but part of me still does. he have my qualities, my personality, are you seeing in him now what you first saw in me?

he has what i had and i want that back by my side, with your hand held in mine. i can't just sit back and relax knowing that we can't rewind for a moment in time.

if he's everything you want cause he's everything i'm not, take a look at what you lost cause that's everything you've got.

    General CommentThis is pretty obvious, it's about a guy who notices his ex is now dating someone that looks just like him, and he's wondering if he's just like him.

    I love in the middle, there's a very blink-182-esque bass line
