I coulda been the one you noticed
I coulda been the one for you
I coulda been like all the others
Is that what I'm supposed to do?

I don't wanna be disappointed
And I don't want to have to prove
How I really feel about you
But you wouldn't even have a clue

I try to be sensitive
I try to be tough
I try to walk away
I try to be innocent
I try to be rough
But I just wanna play

You're my daydream
You know that I've been
Thinking about you lately
And every time I look at you
I can't explain
I feel insane
I can't get away
You're my daydream

If I tell you what I'm thinking
If I let myself trust you
Can you give me what I'm missing?
Can you make my dreams come true?

I try to be sensitive
I try to be tough
I try to walk away
I try to be innocent
I try to be rough
But I just wanna play

You're my daydream
You know that I've been
Thinking about you lately
And every time I look at you
I can't explain
I feel insane
I can't get away
You're my daydream

I've always wanted someone
I've been waiting so long
Could you be that someone
Are you my, are you my
You're my, you're my...

You're my daydream
You know that I've been
Thinking about you lately
And every time I look at you
I can't explain
I feel insane
I can't get away
You're my daydream

And you know, and you know
And you know, and you know
You're making me insane
And you know, and you know
And you know, and you know
You're doing it again (x2)

    General Commentthis is about how a girl likes a guy
    but she doesn't know what to do to get him to be hers.
    she doesn't know if she should be herself or try to be something she's not to get him to notice her.
    and until something happens he's always gonna be her daydream.

    General Commenti relate to this song sooo much its scary. it's about liking a guy so much, that you consider changing yourself to please him. and he's always going to be in her daydreams.

    General CommentI agree with both of you and trust me I've done this before. But I realize now that if someone doesn't like me for me, then they don't really like me. They only like who they think I am.

    General CommentAvril's version is superior, Demi changed the meaning of this song so much.

    Avril did this song a thousand times better.

    General CommentI think Avril Lavigne did a better job singing, and after all she is the song writter in this song
    but both good versions
