She wrote in my yearbook
"Baby, promise let's stay in touch"
But I know, she knows, I know, she didn't.
Maybe we just grew up.
Cause it's been four years and a whole damn summer,and baby I just gave up.
You lost your shot, your boy, you know it goodnight, goodbye.
and I tell myself not to get too close
cause i trust you'll let me down
unless of course I beg you to let me down.

I'm sorry girl i thought of you
and all the things you do to me
cause you lost your shot, your boy, you know it
goodnight, goodbye
sorry girl who lost it all we had the world you let it go with the hand held lips locked stargazed lovers goodnight goodbye


well we've reached the end of this vacation
there's nothing left to feel for you
i watched and waited as you vacated
this love, my love
you can bat your eyelashes, pray to god
honesty's not your calling card
and you know timing just isnt your thing darling
girl you'll never get to me

I'm sorry girl i thought of you
and all the things you do to me
cause you lost your shot, your boy, you know it
goodnight, goodbye
sorry girl who lost it all we had the world you let it go with the hand held lips locked stargazed lovers goodnight goodbye

I'm sorry girl i thought of you
and all the things you do to me
cause you lost your shot, your boy, you know it
goodnight, goodbye
sorry girl who lost it all we had the world you let it go with the hand held lips locked stargazedlovers goodnight goodbye

I'm sorry girl i thought of you
and all the things you do to me
cause you lost your shot, your boy, you know it
goodnight, goodbye,goodbye,goodbye.

    General CommentWELL this song is amazing.
    i think it's about how evan went out with this girl since the beginning of high school ("four years and a whole damn summer") and when he graduated, she told me to keep in touch ("she wrote in my yearbook, baby promise let's stay in touch") but now he wants nothing to do with her because she's a bitch ("i'm sorry girl, i thought of you and all the things you do to me").

    just my thought...

    General Commenti think its about a boy and a girl who dated and then broke up
    but now the girl wants him back but hes saying no because "you lost your shot your boy you know it, goodnight goodbye."
