He’s Choosing You

You’re thinking he doesn’t like you anymore but he does
He’s always talking about how life with you last year was
You remember how he used to always break your heart
and you think there’s a reason why you’ve split apart

After you left, he realized what he needed to do
If he ever was to end up getting back together with you
He got more focused on his goals than ever before
To support himself he’s done sales door to door

And while you’re going to your University classes
He’s looking at life with rose colored glasses
and he dreams of the days you’ll be together again
He’s digging down deep inside his soul
and concentrating on his most important goal
as you surrounded yourself with all those college men
All he knows is what you and have is so true
and he’s choosing you

It may seem like he’s not interested anymore
since that night you had a fight and slammed that door
But something finally got through to his stubborn mind
and when he faced those demons, he decided to grind

He started to refuse to hang out with anyone
He knows that what you have together is far from done
and whether you realize it or not, he misses you so
I’m here at your dorm room cause I wanted you to know

That as you’re going to your University classes
He’s always wearing his rose colored glasses
and he dreams of the days you’ll be together again
He’s digging deep down inside his soul
and concentrating on his most important goal
because you’re around all these ambitious college men
All he knows is what you and he have is true
He’s choosing you

He’s choosing you
and I hope you end up choosing him too.

Lyric Notes: So it took a little while to figure this story out and how it applies to what I’ve been through or what I’ve seen. I’ve come up with the fact that I was in a dorm room with my friend’s girlfriend at the time. It wasn’t quite this story, but I imagined up a scene where the character realized that the girl his friend is choosing may not realize it, so I have him come there to the dorm room and tell her about it. Kind of a reversal, because you expect usually that it’s the guy explaining to the girl that HE doesn’t want to live without her or HE’S had this crush on her. This is different. This is a friend speaking up for his friend as a friend to both of them.  That’s what drove these lyrics and I was pretty happy how it turned out.  Maybe it’s something I always wished someone did for me.  But either way, it was really cool to come up with.
