Molly Jane is 23, she’s graduating from college today, after five long years
She’s ready to be on her own, go out and have a little fun, and not answer to anyone
Make no mistake about it, she still thinks of him,
But right now she’s wondering where he is

He said move on, I can’t hang on,
If you won’t meet me in the middle on solid ground
Tell me what’s wrong, give me something I can work on,
But if all you’ve got is you need some time alone,
I can’t hang on

Molly Jane is finding out that life all alone, is highly overrated
Every guy she goes out with, she compares to him, and she knows that that’s not fair
She wants so bad to call him, she’s staring at the phone,
But she’s afraid to find out, that he’s already gone


She dials up his number like she’s done a million times
But another voice answers on the other end of the line
It was the voice of Becky Martin, Molly Jane’s ex-best friend
You see when Molly moved out, Becky moved in
