I can see my life stretching out before me
And it isn't really mine
There's so much that I have yet to experience
There's not much time left

I don't wanna be held down
I don't wanna think about you when you're not around
Listen to the crazy new sound
It's the beat of a heart that is bigger than you now

Not that kind of girlfriend (repeat three more times)

I can feel your arms tightening around me
And I can't breathe
Don't know who I am or what I believe in
And you're not helping

I don't wanna wear your ring
I just want to meet people that I find interesting
And here's another thing
I don't wanna fall in love till I'm 35

Not that kind of girlfriend (repeat until end of song)

    General Commenti. love. this. song.
    so. much.

    i think smoking popes are/were really underrated. they're so catchy and good and sexalicious.

    General Commentit's just about how he wants to live his life before he is tied down to someone. He's expressing how there is so much he has yet to do in this world before he needs to be devoted to another person. However, it's pretty obvious anyway.

    General Commenti think its about him wanting something serious and proposing to this girl. who's scared of commitment and is in denial over it. the song seems to be a bitter recount to what she told him when she turned him down.
    it at least has to be about loosing someone you love because you are afraid of getting hurt
