The Academy Is... - About a Girl

[Verse 1]
One song about a girl
Can't breathe when I'm around her
I wait here everyday in case
She scratched the surface
She'll never notice

[Chorus]
I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words about a girl
(hey!)

[Verse 2]
Last night I knew what to say
But you weren't there to hear it
These lines so well rehearsed, tongue-tied
And overloaded
You never notice

[Chorus]
I'm not in love
This is not my heart
I'm not gonna waste these words about a girl
I'm not in love
This is not your song
I'm not gonna waste these words about a girl

'About a Girl' was supossed to be the first single from the third studio album by The Academy Is..., entitled "Fast Times at Barrington High", but Summer Hair = Forever Young beat it to the interweb first. It reached the US Billboard Pop charts at #88, and was ranked number 39 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.
