A song about looking back at old loves.

The Girl I Dumped


I said in her blue car that we weren't workin' out
Selflessly stayed to watch her wail and pout
I told her that with all those fish in the sea
“You can do much better than me”
I thought I was blowing smoke
But she settled down with a much finer bloke

I wish I was still with the girl I dumped
She's a radiant goddess
I'm more of a chump
Her love gave me a sense of false confidence
And no other woman's been able to stomach me since

I fixated on her minuscule flaws
They measure my faults in deep waterfalls
My mementos are a picture of her face with mine
Inside her gift of a wallet I don't leave behind
And I've no desire to encroach on her happiness
And know it'll never work out this way
But to being a jerk, I'd like to confess
And a chance to be her prince for just one day
I wish I was still with the girl I dumped
She's a radiant goddess
I'm more of a chump
Her love gave me a sense of false confidence
And no other woman's been able to stomach me since

This is less of a song, more past-due love letter
I'll never find a girl I connect with any better
I'm on the lookout for one-third her appeal
Wondering why ten years ain't been enough time to heal
The next thing I'll say is the absolute truth
Though what's in my soul is the only proof
The fact she had love for me, a love that kept growing
To this very day is what keeps my heart going
I wish I was still with the girl I dumped
She's a radiant goddess
I'm more of a chump
Her love gave me a sense of false confidence
And no other woman's been able to stomach me since
