I wanted her, I wanted her
But she doesn't like the life that I lead
She doesn't like the life that I lead
Doesn't like sand stuck on her feet
Or sitting around smoking weed
I must seem more like a friend in need
And I boast that it is meant to be

But, in all honesty, I don't have a hope in hell
I'm happy just to watch her move
And in all honesty, I don't have a hope in hell
I'm happy just to watch her move

And she doesn't like the friends that I make
Doesn't make friends for friendship's sake
She just gets bored sitting by the lake
Her soul won't surface and her heart won't ache
And I boast that it is meant to be

But, in all honesty, I don't have a hope in hell
I'm happy just to watch her move

And I thought they could cure his disease
But, in all honesty, he didn't have a hope in hell
Now we'll never see him move

    General CommentI can't decide what happens at the end either... I think yes he is talking about himself in the third person, and maybe he has eventually gotten with the girl and she has taken over his life and his friends never see him any more (as often happens).
