Holiday and I come home
I hope to see this boy I know
I can't wait for us to be alone

Flipping through the radio
We sing along to the Indie show
The songs, they play me more than I can say

In the tape I made you
Hope you think of me when it plays through
I'm kind of sad now that it's done

And you think our times were free
And all the ways you say to me
Sweet versions of let's wait and see

But you're always a golden boy
And I'm the girl that you enjoy
My parents say, "Isn't he a gifted son?"

Time is always passing by
And still I have to wonder why
You can't come to tell me I'm the one

Summer goes and we have grown
We have our friends live on our own
Still I'm not the girl you want me to be

Say gravity can bend the time
Funny I always liked your mind
This whole thing is crushing me

But you're always a golden boy
In this girl's heart that you destroyed
You smile at me and then have your fun

Time is always passing by
Still I give you another try
And hope that you will see that I'm the one

You say you're scared to get too close
Come, let's see how it goes
See you now at the show, 7th in the 7th row

Now you look at me
You see what I've known for so long
Sad that you could be so lovely and so wrong

Came to say that I've moved
I see your face, you don't approve
Guess you could say that I'm already gone

But you'll always be my golden boy
And I'm the summer girl that you enjoy
Some melodies are best left undone

I feel the time pass away
But in my songs you'll always stay
I don't need you to tell me I'm the one, no, no, no
I don't need you to tell me I'm the one
You'll never know that I was the one
