Lyrics:
You're So New
Your head wouldn't fit the same place on my pillowcase
Your hair is longer and you walk at a strange pace
My mem'ries of the one who left me still are stinging
(like a little breeze on winter days)
But I'm sitting at home and biting my nails and wondering why the phone isn't ringing 
(like a little sunlight through the haze)

  You're So New
  (I still just can't quite believe I'm staring)
  (sitting here thinking I'm long past caring)
  (simmering in a funk of blue)
  (but I'm looking around, 'coz)
  You're So New

I'm still convinced that I'll never love again that way
but now it seems that I might not be that sure someday
I met you there at dinner; who eats eggplant parmesan?
(like a thunderstorm that's almost past)
It seemed pretty clear that the hurt was still there, but I just might be moving on.
(like a wind that's caught a sail at last)

  You're So New
  (I don't even know your whole name)
  (Trying to set aside the old game)
  (Wondering what I'm gonna do)
  ('coz I'm watching you laugh, and)
  You're So New

Remembering what my mama told me: Don't go and talk to strangers
They drive big cars and offer you candy; take you away to unknown dangers
But when the danger that I'm facing right now's watching TV all night long
(a mossy stone can start to roll)
If you open your door and offer me candy I might just come along
(a little less thought & self-control)

  You're So New
  (I still just can't quite believe I'm staring)
  (sitting here thinking I'm long past caring)
  (Wondering what I'm gonna do)
  ('coz I'm watching you laugh, and)
  You're So New
