If you're like me, you'll live this story.

To a Girl Like Me

One day you'll meet a girl

One day you'll meet a girl and she'll see a light in you

One day you'll meet a girl and she'll see a light in you that you've never seen before

One day you'll meet a girl and she'll see a light in you that you've never seen before, so you'll tell her you see hers too

One day you'll meet a girl and she'll see a light in you that you've never seen before, so you'll tell her you see hers too, and you'll fall so slowly

One day you'll meet a girl and she'll see a light in you that you've never seen before, so you'll tell her you see hers too, and you'll fall so slowly you can't feel it until it hurts.

Then she leaves you with your pain

Then she leaves you with your pain and a single lonely verse.

But she'll come back

But she'll come back and then she'll leave again

But she'll come back and then she'll leave again, and you'll never regret

But she'll come back and then she'll leave again, and you'll never regret having let her in

But she'll come back and then she'll leave again, and you'll never regret having let her in when she came around

But she'll come back and then she'll leave again, and you'll never regret having let her in when she came around and knocked on your door.

You'll just wish you held her

You'll just wish you held her a little more.

It's a special kind of self hatred

It's a special kind of self hatred to love someone so careless

It's a special kind of self hatred to love someone so careless that when she speaks

It's a special kind of self hatred to love someone so careless that when she speaks she only speaks in promise

It's a special kind of self hatred to love someone so careless that when she speaks she only speaks in promise of a future together

It's a special kind of self hatred to love someone so careless that when she speaks she only speaks in promise of a future together she has no intent on keeping.

She thinks of you as a friend

She thinks of you as a friend while you think of her instead of sleeping.

And when you finally gather the courage

And when you finally gather the courage to take the first step away

And when you finally gather the courage to take the first step away, you'll run back to her in fear

And when you finally gather the courage to take the first step away, you'll run back to her in fear she's silently begging you to stay

And when you finally gather the courage to take the first step away, you'll run back to her in fear she's silently begging you to stay, and you'll do this until your limbs grow tired

And when you finally gather the courage to take the first step away, you'll run back to her in fear she's silently begging you to stay, and you'll do this until your limbs grow tired, and she'll tell you she has more tiring things to face.

You'll realize her back was turned so long

You'll realize her back was turned so long that her silence was her blindness.

Now is when you have to accept

Now is when you have to accept she's been gone since the first time she left

Now is when you have to accept she's been gone since the first time she left, and you've been handing out second chances

Now is when you have to accept she's been gone since the first time she left, and you've been handing out second chances like she's been handing you a test

Now is when you have to accept she's been gone since the first time she left, and you've been handing out second chances like she's been handing you a test, while really she's just debating

Now is when you have to accept she's been gone since the first time she left, and you've been handing out second chances like she's been handing you a test, while really she's just debating if she still wants you around.

Tell yourself you're worth more than you can prove

Tell yourself you're worth more than you can prove and turn her offer down.

Yes, darling you'll be alone

Yes, darling you'll be alone, but without her you will grow.
