I don't think that passenger seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
And I count the colors in his eyes

He'd never fall in love
He swears, as he runs his fingers through his hair
I'm laughing 'cause I hope he's wrong
And I don't think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke, I fake a smile
That I know all his favorite songs

And I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He loves to argue
Born on the seventeenth
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him..
I'd lie

He looks around the room
Innocently overlooks the truth
Shouldn't a light go on
Doesn't he know that I've had him memorized for so long

He sees everything in black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don't let nobody see me wishing he was mine

I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He loves to argue
Born on the seventeenth
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him..
I'd lie

He stands there, then walks away
My God, if I could only say
I'm holding every breath for you

He'd never tell you, but he can play guitar
I think he can see through everything but my heart
First thought when I wake up is
My God, he's beautiful
So I put on my make-up and pray for a miracle

Yes I could tell you
His favorite color's green
He loves to argue
Oh, and it kills me
His sister's beautiful
He has his father's eyes
And if you ask me if I love him..
If you ask me if I love him..
I'd lie

    General CommentYesterday, I got a note from one of my best friends (that's a guy) and it said:
    And I could tell you
    Her favorite color's blue
    She likes to argue
    Born on the third
    She has no sister
    She has her mother's eyes
    And if you asked me if I loved her
    I'd lie

    General CommentThis song makes me sad.
    In love best friend. So tragic, and way to common.
    I changed the song and constantly sing it my way.


    I could tell you
    His favorite color's BLUE
    He loves to argue
    Born on the THIRDDD
    His sister's beautiful
    He has his MOTHER's eyes
    And if you ask me if I love him..
    I'd lie

    General CommentOMG, this is such a sweet song. She's so deep in love with the guy and he is a typical guy...clueless:) How many women can relate to this tune!

    General CommentThis song is really self explanitory.

    She is in love with a guy, probley someone she is close too and has known for a while.

    He talks to her about private stuff, and she knows some of his secrets.
    But she loves him, and he only see's her as a friend.

    So she knows all about him, even some secret stuff, but he never notices how much she likes him.

    General Commenti thought the same thing as everyone else and i loved it, it's so perfect for me, but then a friend of mine told me it was misinterpreted, that she's with her boyfriend and she cant fall in love with him? we got in like an hour long debate about it haha

    i was wondering if anyone else had heard this meaning?

    General Commenti havent actually listened to the song yet, just read the lyrics, but i think the recycled lyrics are kinda interesting.... passenger seat, the colors in his eyes, runs his fingers through his hair, fake a smile, wishing he was mine, wake-up/make-up, he's beautiful, etc....

    so you get some of the same images as fearless, teardrops on my guitar, i heart ?, you're beautiful, etc...

    General CommentThis song is so easy to relate to for most people.
    She knows this guy, probably a close friend of hers.
    She knows everything about him,
    but he only sees her as a friend.
    She wished things were different, but she doesnt want to tell him
    because it might ruin the friendship.

    I relate to this song, alot.

    But we will only ever be friends...
