1st Place – “Forget You Girl” by Debra Gussin, Los Angeles, CA, Kyle Vincent, Amherst, MA

Lyrics:

So you saw me with her holding hands
While we softly whispered Friday plans
Yeah, I’m sure it threw you for a curve
What you thought you caught, and thought you heard

See I’m still not used to missin’ you
Some days are shades of gray and blue
One day you’re dying for my touch
The next day, your lips fall out of love

Now I’m fillin’ time again
Waitin’ ’til you’re mine again…

(CHORUS)
She’s my ‘Forget You Girl’
Yeah, I’m tryin’ to move on
They say it won’t be long
’til my ‘Forget You Girl’
Makes me forget you, girl
And you’re goin’, goin’, goin’, goin’ gone.

It’s been so hard for me to fall asleep
Without your heart beatin’ next to me
So sometimes it’s someone else’s skin
Inside this bed you should be in

But when I look into her eyes
It’s you I’m seein’ every time

(CHORUS)
She’s my ‘Forget You Girl’
Yeah, I’m tryin’ to move on
They say it won’t be long
’til my ‘Forget You Girl’
Makes me forget you, girl
And then you’re goin’, goin’, goin’, goin’ gone

(bridge)
You let go of my hand
I sank into your quicksand
Falling deep, falling fast
But there’s no future in the past
Not everything can last (whoa, whoa, whoa)

Time is showing me the light
It’s time to give up on this fight (oh, whoa, whoa)

(CHORUS)
She’s my ‘Forget You Girl’
Yeah, I’m gonna move on (whoa, whoa)
I know it won’t be long
’til my ‘Forget You Girl’
Makes me forget you, girl
And then you’re goin’, goin’, goin’, goin’ …

She’s my ‘Forget You Girl’
Yeah, I’m gonna be strong (yeah, yeah)
I know it won’t be long
Til my ‘Forget You Girl’
Makes me forget you, girl
And I’ll be goin’, goin’, goin’, goin’
