Are you a student or a friend or just a random from town
And she's a pretty pretty girl, but you're still looking around
You say "I know Jude" and she says she does too
And now you wish you hadn't come 'cause she's just dragging you down
Into a state of desperation 'cause she's wearing a dress
That doesn't really state a lot, but there's a lot to suggest
It's gonna save some time if you finish your drink
You never liked the taste of gin, but now you couldn't care less

Maybe you need to focus
Maybe you need to care
Maybe you need to stop thinking 'bout
How much you miss the other girl
Maybe you'll wait till Monday
Maybe she'll show her face
But if it comes down to circumstance
You'll just stay lonely

Suppose the summer started, you had nothing to wear
The thought of her and her with someone leaves you feeling impaired
It's gonna take some time if you can't make her think
That all the things you never wanted bring you back to a place
Where all the looks she ever gave you kept a lock on your door
Your walls were barely painted green her clothes were still on the floor
It's gonna take some space just to make it alone
The days are emptier than others when you sleep on your own

Maybe you need to focus
Maybe you need to care
Maybe you need to stop thinking 'bout
How much you miss the other girl
Maybe you'll wait till Monday
Maybe she'll show her face
But if it comes down to circumstance
You'll just stay lonely

Are you a student or a friend or just a random from town
And she's a pretty pretty girl, but you're still looking around
You'll talk all night if you don't make a move
She's getting bored of Roman history and she's looking away
And now she's dancing to a song that makes you question her taste
She's got a whisper in her ear, she's got a grin on her face
She takes two then she hands 'em to you
She's gonna take you by the hand and take you back to her place
Into her room, to stay
A fake holiday
To celebrate our lack of romance
So don't assume, her way
Will keep you up late
It seems so detrimental somehow

Maybe you need to focus
Maybe you need to care
Maybe you need to stop thinking 'bout
How much you miss the other girl
Maybe you'll wait till Monday
Maybe she'll show her face
But if it comes down to circumstance
You'll just stay lonely

Are you a student or a friend or just a random from town
And she's a pretty pretty girl, but you're still looking around
You say "I know Jude" and she says she does too
And now you wish you hadn't come 'cause she's just dragging you down

    General Commentto me, i think of a guy who has been an unsettled lover for a while and has an insatiable want for love. he thinks hes into a girl, then meets someone who knows her. that someone and him get involved, he takes her home, and then he starts to think of the first girl. time passes by and he ended up lonely in the end, but the second girl comes back into his life. she takes him back to her place this time. but she knows he's been unsure so she's careful and doesnt keep him up late at night and it's a whole other situation
