I wrote you thousands of chords
But the more I confess the less you're impressed with me
I'd leave you begging for more if only you were listening
And I'm freaking out
Gotta get, get over this now
I've spent all my time writing these heartfelt lines, but they won't be heard

I'm sick of writing songs that you don't even listen to
This one goes out to me, it's not about you
I'm sick of writing songs that you don't even listen to
This one goes out to me, it's not about you

So make sure this song's not on your mind when you're kissing me
Are you missing me when I'm away for days?
Is this the song that plays? Oh no, of course not

Until now I've been finding excuses to not tell you how I feel
But this is the last straw
You've gone too far this time

And I know that I am the best thing you'll ever have
Well if you don't start listening, well you'll have to start looking

So make sure this song's not on your mind when you're kissing me
Are you missing me when I'm away for days?
Is this the song that plays? Oh no, of course not
Is this the song that's on your mind when you're kissing me?
Are you missing me when I'm away for days?
Is this the song that plays? Oh no, of course not.

So you can save your excuses, I've already heard it.
Your lipstick looks perfect, wouldn't want you to ruin it
By wasting your breath as you're proving to me
I mean half as much to you as you mean to me

So you can save your excuses, I've already heard it
So save your excuses, I've already heard it

So make sure this song's not on your mind when you're kissing me
Are you missing me when I'm away for days?
Is this the song that plays? Oh no, of course not
Is this the song that's on your mind when you're kissing me?
Are you missing me when I'm away for days?
Is this the song that plays?

    General Commentwow. i LOVE this song.
    this song is about a guy who really likes a girl but she doesn't really like him. he writes her songs and cares about her but she could really care less... he's basically saying f you for not listening. and that she wont find anyone else like him for herself. really powerful, i love it. I LOVE MANDY K!!!! :)
