Author's Note: I wrote this in the third person, but it really is universal. You could be saying to yourself or anyone you know.

You've got to stop this

Stop thinking only what you want to be true about him

He's not the one you want him to be

You should know that by now

But just hearing his voice in your mind changes it faster than anything

And gets you wanting to be back with him

It's not right

He's not the one you should be thinking about

You shouldn't be thinking about him that way

He's not the one you should want

You shouldn't be wanting him back

He might have those eyes & that smile

But that's not what you should remember most about him

You know what I mean

You should listen to this

And you know why

He's not missing you

And you shouldn't be missing him

You want him to be all of the things he never was

Don't kid yourself into thinking that's how he is now

Turn your radio on

Keep changing the station

Until you're on something that doesn't make you think of him

He's not the one you should be thinking about

You shouldn't be thinking about him that way

He's not the one you should want

You shouldn't be wanting him back

He might have those eyes & that smile

But that's not what you should remember most about him

You know what I mean

Don't play dumb

You know the truth even if you wish you didn't

No amount of wishing is going to change his mind

Walking away from a guy like him isn't easy

Especially not for you

But it's what you should do

What makes it worse is you know it's true

And yet you still feel you can't

Please listen to me now

He's not the one you should be thinking about

You shouldn't be thinking about him that way

He's not the one you should want

You shouldn't be wanting him back

He might have those eyes & that smile

But that's not what you should remember most about him

You know what I mean
