I’ll paint you a picture with words
I miss her.
We still talk like everyday
But we don’t talk in the same way that we used to
I’ll move on and forget you
We could never see eye to eye
But either way.

I like her ‘cause she’s smart, headstrong and independent,
She puts me in my place, but I don’t know where I stand,
And if only I could find the words, or muster up the nerve to tell her
I’ll never forget her
And she’ll always have a part of me.

Don’t let me go down this road again
We both know where this ends
In a storm of feeling, I’m so unappealing
I can’t play these games

I like her ‘cause she’s smart, headstrong and independent,
She puts me in my place, but I don’t know where I stand,
And if only I could find the words, or muster up the nerve to tell her
I’ll never forget her
And she’ll always have a part of me.

I like her ‘cause she’s smart, headstrong and independent,
She puts me in my place, but I don’t know where I stand,
And if only I could find the words, or muster up the nerve to tell her
I’ll never forget her
And she’ll always have a part of me.
She'll always have a part of me.

I was falling for a girl who would ask me to come over
Just for a day, when her parents were away,
Now all I can do is lay in my room,
Fall asleep, dream of you,
Then wake up and do nothing about it

I fell for a boy who could never ever let me walk home that way,
‘Cause you gotta be safe,
So hold back your views,
We’re both leaving soon,
I can’t fall back on you,
‘Cause that’s not what I do.

She hates it when I shout these words,
But I still sing for you.
I'll still sing for you.

    My InterpretationI think that this song is the story of a boy who thought that he had a really strong emotional connection with a girl. She's super confident and knows exactly what she's doing, and puts him in his place and leaves a mark on him. He just wants to protect her but she's not like that so she ends up pushing him away. she's okay with hu once in a while but doesn't want anything more than that. He's super hurt by it and doesn't want to become deressed again from it. ye

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure it is about a couple that broke up. They still talk to each other, but it's not the same and he finds it hard to stay away from her. He thinks she's still great but he doesn't want to hook up again because of the reason the relation stopped, whatever that may be (could be that she hates that he "shouts these words"). He's not sure things have changed and doesn't want to try again because it could end up just the same. He tries to forget her, and one day he finds another girl who asks him to come over, but he's still into the first girl, the one he actually loves, but can not be together with. He keeps on singing for the first girl which means he probably still loves her. just an interpretation..

    General CommentI think this song is about a boy who falls in love with his best friend, but never gets the courage to tell her. Unknowingly to him, she feels the same way and they spend the rest of their friendship in this very awkward position
