"Mixtape" as written by and Butch Walker....
You say hello
Inside I'm screaming "I love you"
You say goodnight
In my mind I'm sleeping next to you
You drive away from my car crash of a heart
And I don't know

But you gave me the best mixtape I have
Even all the bad songs ain't so bad
I just wish there was so much more than that
About me and you

You talk to him
And it burns me like the sun
You talk to her
You say that you feel like he's the one
I talk to me
But you can't hear the pain I feel
And you don't know

'Cause you gave me the best mixtape I have
And even all the sad songs ain't so sad
I only wish that there was more than that
About me and you
About me and you

Oh, don't turn around and say bye again
Yeah, it crushes my head when you call me your friend
And I'm not the same person from back in the day
In the back of the class
That you thought was gay
No, I can't find the words 'cause I lost them the minute
They fell out of my mouth
And it's love, and I'm in it
So give me your lips
And just let me kiss them
And let's get messed up and listen to possibly

The best mixtape I have
Even all the bad songs ain't so bad
I just wish there was so much more than that
About me and you
About me and you

    General CommentBasicly about him being friends with a girl and wanting more and being intensly inlove with her
    but her having a boyfriend and being inlove with her boyfriend.




    "You say hello
    Inside I'm screaming "I love you"
    You say goodnight
    In my mind I'm sleeping next to you
    You drive away from my car crash of a heart
    And I don't know"
    -------------

    There friends, and when she see's him everytime inside he's saying he loves her
    but he doesnt't want her to know because he knows she wouldn't feel the same.
    and when they say goodnight he wanst to be with her and never wants to say
    goodnight, and im not sure about this part but i think that she broke his heart
    because she has boyfriend and he doesn't know what to do about it
    -------------

    "But you gave me the best mixtape I have
    Even all the bad songs ain't so bad
    I just wish there was so much more than that
    About me and you"
    --------------

    Either he told her that he loved her but she just didn't feel that way about h]im
    so she gave him a mixtape of their favorite songs to remember her by or
    she gave him a mixtape and every sad song on there is like about them
    but he still loves it, and he wishes they werre more then just friends.
    --------------

    "You talk to him
    And it burns me like the sun
    You talk to her
    You say that you feel like he's the one
    I talk to me
    But you can't hear the pain I feel
    And you don't know"
    --------------


    When she talks to her boyfriend and kisses him n hugs him
    it's killing him, and she talks to her friends about him all the time i guess,
    And he can't tell her he loves her so he just says it to himself over and over
    how he feels about her.
    --------------

    "Oh, don't turn around and say bye again
    Yeah, it crushes my head when you call me your friend
    And I'm not the same person from back in the day
    In the back of the class

    Oh and in this part i'm not sure but it sounds like on the song
    "lets get fucked up and listen to" but anyways, I guess this part
    he told her how he feels and she's walking off, Or he's about to tell her.
    And everytime she just thinks of them as friends it crushes his heart/head.
    And before he use to be like a geek i guess or something or she thought of him like that
    And while he;s telling her he's rambling on and just can't seem to tell her everything
    because it's hard for him to,idk,ok thats all later

    General Commenti think him and the girl were always friends and he always loved her but she only saw him as a best friend. hes been through everything with her but she still doesnt see him that way. in the end the best memories of her are on this mixtape so he cherishes it.
