You'll say we've got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we're falling apart
You'll say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
Still I know you don't care

And I said "what about breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remeber the film and as I recall we both kinda liked it"
And I said "well that's the one thing we've got"

I see you, the only one who knew me,
And now your eyes see through me,
I guess I was wrong,
So what now? It's plain to see we're over,
And I hate when things are over,
When so much is left undone.

And I said "what about breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remeber the film and as I recall we both kinda liked it"
And I said "well that's the one thing we've got"

You'll say, that we've got nothin in common,
No common ground to start from,
And we're falling apart,
You'll say the world has come between us,
Our lives have come between us,
Still I know you just don't care.

And I said "what about breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remeber the film and as I recall we both kinda liked it"
And I said "well that's the one thing we've got"

Ooooo
And I said "what about breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remeber the film and as I recall we both kinda liked it"
And I said "well that's the one thing we've got"

And I said "what about breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said "I think I remeber the film and as I recall we both kinda liked it"
And I said "well that's the one thing we've got"

    General CommentI think its about a guy and a girl and the girl wants out of the relationship. She says that they are so different, and are completely incompatible, and that they should no longer date. The guy does not want things to be over, because he still likes the girl so he is desperate for something they have in common. He remembers that they both liked the same movie, and hopes this is something that they can build off of to restore their relationship. This song is very obvious, I just wanted to be the first to analyze it.
