two hundred miles between us, I'd walk them all for you.
it's really so exciting to find someone new.
and tell me that your feeling the way I feel today.
and tell me that you need me, tell me I'm okay. yeah.

I was your brief obsession, I really thought you cared.
but your a well-versed actor who's emotionally impaired.
you're brushing me off like I'm only here to bother you.
there's nothing going for us, but I can't accept that as true.

I don't think that my face ever passes thru your mind.
I see you in the hallway we bump shoulders all the time.
and I don't think you care enough to give me the time of day.
but I can't turn away.

now, I've gotten over you, it didn't take that long.
if only I'd known from the start with you there's something wrong.
for every person in this world, there's someone who is meant to be.
and I realize that with you, is not the place for me.

    General Commentthis is a great song to listen to when you're feeling down about loosing a boyfriend or girlfriend. (i also like save ferris - i'm not crying) it's upbeat and says "i'm over you!" it's cheesy but i like it =)
