Lyrics
I don?t see where you realize I?m even here
es it take to get your ear
Or are you just avoiding me, can?t even see

Well I?ve tried so hard to get a moment next to you
There ain?t a tougher thing to do
I?m bringing up the rear in line, ain?t got the time

Why don?t girls like you give the time of days to guys like me
You know I?m twice the man your loser boyfriend?s ever gonna be

What?s it take for a guy like me to catch your eye
You turn your head and pass me by
Wish I could get you off my mind, leave you behind

The games you?re playing, are based on rules that favor you
While you?re ignorin? what is true
Too busy livin? fairy tales, destined to fail
[sans instruments except drums]
Why don?t girls like you give the time of days to guys like me
You know I?m twice the man your loser boyfriend?s ever gonna be
[instruments kick back in]
Why don?t girls like you give the time of days to guys like me
You know I?m twice the man your loser boyfriend?s ever gonna be
