The year was muggy,
It was hot outside.
I sat around and cried.
I thought that I was gonna die
Until I found you.

I saw you look at me that day,
I turned the other way.
Then I realized,
That I just wanted you.

[Chorus 1]
Why's it gotta be so complicated?
I think everything's just overrated.

When you talk to me,
You don't have to say a word.
I know what's in your head,
'Cause we speak the same language.

I'm smiling at you,
But you're across the room.
Although the distance is great,
There is no space in between.

[Chorus 2]
When am I gonna find someone like this?
Is it any further than I think it is?

I won't ever leave you now,
Still it's different, somehow.
Why does everything have to
Change suddenly?

I looked at you that day
And you turned the other way.
Now we're right back where,
Back where we started from.

[Chorus 1]

    My InterpretationThe song is about someone whose heart was broken (cheating?), but found another interest.
    The first "turning around" was the singer, either bashful of advances, or trying not to be involved until she's healed from the previous relationship, hence why everything is complicated the first time.
    The second verse speaks of a mature relationship, that she and her lover are becoming so close that they can finish each other's sentences, seemingly reading each other's minds, and no matter how far they are, physically, they are still feeling so close.
    The third verse speaks of another heartbreak (cheating?), leading the singer right back to the beginning, though she's feeling stuck, unable to leave him.
