Verse 1:
What am I doing here again
Breaking the only rule I’ve set
Standing outside your door for what I can’t accept

I don’t know why I need to know
I don’t know why I can’t let go
I can’t seem to give it up without the interception

Pre-Chorus:
Oh no, here we go – around the bend
You don’t know and it doesn’t matter - I condescend
But there’s a beautiful girl around your neck
Such a beautiful girl - Oh my God, you know I’m such a wreck

Chorus:
There’s a beautiful girl
And I know I can’t compete
She’s a beautiful girl
Why can’t it just be me

Verse 2:
What kind of heart goes this off beat
Leading me down a dead end street
Sending me out to search for what I can not reach

I must be crazy in the head
I should’ve stayed at home in bed
Better off dreaming about anything but you

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
Why can’t you see
Why isn’t it me

Verse 3:
I don’t know how to carry on
I can’t believe it’s been this long
And now this flame is burning everything that’s left

Chorus 2:
But there’s a beautiful girl
And I know I can’t compete
She’s a beautiful girl
I know I know I see
She’s a beautiful girl
I don’t need your sympathy
Such a beautiful girl
And it isn’t me
