dumb boys who love you 'cause they don't know better say,
"you're the most beautiful girl i've ever seen."
and i get embarrassed on their behalf,
because i know that i have acted like that...
you are the talk of the town that's been silent for years,
a sound that fell suddenly on covered ears -
you could have anyone, at any time, for any reason.
you could have anyone at anytime for any small reason,
the options are endless and endlessly boring -
but you only want the one who doesn't really want you...
you only want the one you will never have.
just like baseball, and jesus, and halloween,
you are a phase that now means very little to me;
like baseball and jesus and halloween
you're someone i wonder why i ever knew...
just like baseball and jesus and halloween
you are a phase that i think i outgrew,
but you are the most...
you are the most beautiful phase i ever went through.
and i've got you out of my mind
and i've got you out of my sight
and i've got you out of my heart
and out of my life.
and i've got you in some photos that i don't care to look at
and i've got you in a jar locked away in my attic.
and i've got you out of my system -
bet you didn't think i could do it
and i'm finally my own person
and my heart wears a helmet...
and i've got you out of my system, got you out of my system,
got you out of my system almost entirely.
and i'm finally my own person, i am finally a real person,
one who has got you out of his system almost entirely.
and you cannot bring me down, though i don't doubt you will try,
you cannot bring me down any lower.
and you should really be proud - i can tell that you're proud.
you are the talk of the town on a slow day.
and i'll never let this happen again, no, i'll never let it.
starting today, my heart wears a helmet.
dumb boys who love you 'cause they don't know better say,
"you're the most beautiful girl i've ever seen."
and i've said this myself once before this is true,
but i've said no shortage of dumb things to you.
