Lyrics

i can recall sneaking up to her house
ran through the night, the dogs barked so loud
i was convinced that they'd wake up the neighbors for sure

and i can recall some of those nights the best
fell asleep with her head on my chest
just hopin and prayin her dad wouldn't barge through the door

but those days are gone and they're gone now for good
and i have moved on like i knew that i would
thinkin bout her like i got nothin better to do
man, she's just a girl that i knew

i can recall on a cold rainy day
my jacket held open, we huddled in place
sammy looked over, said that's when he figured it out

and i recall a few months passin time
all the while her hand restin in mine
but let me assure you i haven't the least bit of doubt

that those days are gone, yeah they're gone now for good
and i have moved on like i knew that i would
i am quite certain those feelings will never renew
'cause she's just a girl that i knew

i recall on the phone yesterday
you told me you met her in a bar along the way
you said that she looked like a heavenly angel in jeans

you said you shared a few drinks for a while
she must have fallen in love with that smile
you walked her home safely, but i think i know what that means

but those days are gone, yeah they're gone now for good
and i have moved on like i knew that i would
i promise i give you the greenest of lights to pursue
'cause she's just a girl that i knew

i'm sure you'll make a perfect couple
both so pretty smart and nice
and when someday you two get married
i'll be right there with my bowl of rice

i really am wishing the best for you two
a house, a few kids, a dog, and a pool
you'll deserve it for you will have given each other your hearts

but late at night when you can't figure out
what in the world she is dreaming about
i'm sure it's not me she'll be wishing she chose from the start

'cause those days are gone yeah they're gone now for good
and she has moved on like i knew that she would
as great as it was i am certain she's happy we're through
'cause she's just a girl that i....

those days are gone yeah they're gone now for good
and i have moved on like i knew that i would
her parents both love me but i'm sure that there's room for you too
'cause she's just a girl that i...

those days are gone yeah they're gone now for good
and we have moved on like i knew that we would
remember these words when your deepest of doubts come to view
she's just a girl that i knew
