    Got it all too high
    Got it figured out,
    I wanna do whatever
    Laugh until september
    And I seem to think that you were once here with me
    Maybe I was wrong
    U were moving on
    And I sit and wonder
    Falling under
    Get my way or nothing will move on
    Everyone has gone
    You feel so empty, but I've got me a friend
    And I like it
    And I know u say I can't care for someone
    But are you that clever that you smile forever?
    Is it summer yet?
    Cause I just don't feel it
    Baby it's a treaty
    Maybe you are not her
    And I sit and wonder, falling under
    Get my way or nothing will move on
    Everyone has gone.
    You feel so empty, but I've got me a friend
    And I like it, oh!
    Say now, got it for all of me
    How do I?
