Not Your Other Girl

Verse 1:
It all started one evening out on the dance floor
The bright vest brought us together
It was late, I almost headed for the door
But I hadn’t been danced with forever
You found out I was young, but you’re kind to the core
You stuck with me, and left me never

Verse 2:
I was careful for the fear of losing you
Nothing I did seemed right
But the second day you came, it felt new
On a bad day you brought light
And I’ll never forget that feeling, Drew
That someone cared at first sight

Chorus:
What the heck is wrong with you
You’re more confusing than a rubik’s cube
With the words you spoke
Why do you make me feel like running
I don’t know what this is becoming
Now my heart is broke
You’re not the first and you aren’t the last
I want to be your whole world
Not your other girl

Verse 3:
Two years later I still find us talking
Countless topics run in my mind
But one just remains, it keeps on stalking
To thank you for being so kind
I needed to do it, only time was there blocking
I couldn’t keep you that blind

Verse 4:
I meant everything in that short note
You really changed my ways
So that thank you was not hard to emote
Even after the many days
But the following words in the texts you wrote
Forever in my heart it stays

Chorus:
What the heck is wrong with you
You’re more confusing than a rubik’s cube
With the words you spoke
Why do you make me feel like running
I don’t know what this is becoming
Now my heart is broke
You’re not the first and you aren’t the last
I want to be your whole world
Not your other girl

Verse 5:
Lifelight was where I really found you
It was like a movie clip
I was watching, but I felt your eyes on me too
Your arm seemed to slip
But the comfort then became a glue
We were attached at the hip

Chorus:
What the heck is wrong with you
You’re more confusing than a rubik’s cube
With the words you spoke
Why do you make me feel like running
I don’t know what this is becoming
Now my heart is broke
You’re not the first and you aren’t the last
I want to be your whole world
Not your other girl

Bridge:
Well you showed me the glory
Then out came this story
Of another girl, who thinks she’s got you
Why did I think this was different
I really thought I knew
But then again, this is all thanks to Drew

Chorus:
What the heck is wrong with you
You’re more confusing than a rubik’s cube
With the words you spoke
Why do you make me feel like running
I don’t know what this is becoming
Now my heart is broke
You’re not the first and you aren’t the last
I want to be your whole world
Not your other girl
