"When I'm With You" as written by and Charles-andre/stinco Comeau....
I'm taking my time
I'm trying to leave
The memories of you behind
I'm gonna be fine
As soon as I get your picture
Right out of my mind

I wanna feel the way you make me feel
When I'm with you
I wanna be the only hand
You need to hold on to
But every time I call, you dont have time
I guess I'll never get to call you mine

You're nothing at all
I know theres a million reasons
Why I shouldn't call
When nothing to say
Could easily make this conversation last all day

I wanna feel the way you make me feel
When I'm with you
I wanna be the only hand
You need to hold on to
But every time I call, you dont have time
I guess I'll never get to call you mine

Another lesson I didn't get to learn
You're my obsession
I've got nowhere to turn

I wanna feel the way you make me feel
When I'm with you
I wanna be the only hand
You need to hold on to

I wanna feel the way you make me feel
When I'm with you
I wanna be the hand
You need to hold on
But I guess I'll never get to call you mine

    General CommentI love this song.. I think its about a guy wanting to be with someone, but them not wanting the same thing and him knowing it. "I'll be fine as soon as I get your picture right out of my mind" He's trying to get over this girl, yet still can't help but want to be with her. Its great because its easy to relate to.

    General CommentI heard of simple plan last year during the summer time, waited anxiously for their damn cd to come out, and when they do this is like, the best song on it ... it describes how you feel when you like someone so much and they give you their number and you have nothing to say ... beautiful, plus it grabs the emotion of being nervous about someone.

    General Comment"I wanna feel
    the way you make me feel

    the only hand you need to hold onto "
