Jesse McCartney - The Other Guy Lyrics




The selfish part of me needs for you to stay
'Cause girl you keep a smile stretched across my face
And I would give anything now
But you would lose everything now
The way your lips move when you say my name
The smell of your hair on my pillow case
And I would give anything now
But you would lose everything now
If I'd had it my way I'd never let you walk out the door
But my heart is heavy with something that I just can't ignore

Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done
Baby who am I to be that other guy?
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
I'd never wanna feel twice,
I know what it's like from the other side
So baby who am I to be that other guy?

This could be our home girl, a special place
Something much more than your great escape
Girl I would give anything now if you didn't had everything now
It doesn't have to be that you feel the same
You're telling me your love for me would never change
Unless you change everything now it doesn't mean anything now
If it's him that you've chosen, then we need to stop closing the door
'Cause while he's at home waiting, then we can't pretend there's something more

Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done
Baby who am I to be that other guy?
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
I'd never wanna feel twice,
I know what it's like from the other side

Ooh oh, I know it's not an easy choice to make
Ooh, 'cause no matter what you do
A heart will break
Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done
Baby who am I to be that other guy?
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
I'd never wanna feel twice,
I know what it's like from the other side
So baby you decide who is that other guy?
'Cause baby, who am I to be that other guy?

  61. Chit Baldoza

    Its funny how songs like this just get 300k views over a long period of time compared to shit stuffs that get million or billion views for just a few months. Damn people wake up. We gotta pay jmac a lot of credit for still bringing great music despite of all the changes in this industry. I love how he sings from the heart and them lyrics will just really hit you man.

    Lexi Kitten

    Not hating on Jesse, I love his stuff, but this is subjective/opinionated. People like what they like. /shrug

  75. atira husky

    Live this song

  76. Sue nanspring

    i cried when i heart this song. It is just how u relate this song to your life. All good and bad memories just came to my mind. the bad memories i could never forget and the happy moment will never come back. i am a international college student right now. And i had a very good day today. I got a very high scholarship for my next semester. But listening to this song, i just became terribly upset. Feeling always like "the other guy" in this place, in this life, even i have many friends who care about me. "Who am i?" yes, i am searching myself. Thanks so much, jesse. Your music really help me a lot.

  77. ChasterBeef

    I remember listening to Beautiful Soul when I was younger, now I'm hearing his new stuff and wondering "With artists like JT and others on the rise... When can we expect this guy to break through the top of the chart?

  78. Angie Angie

  83. Thanh Pham

    im crying because of this song. really heart touching

  84. Meghan L

    Even from his older music, like Told You So, Just So You Know, Not Your Enemy, It's Over, and Tell Her, I cried at those songs then and now. Now, I cry at this one. I didn't have a reason why to cry with them, I just did. But now I do have a reason and it's all cause my douche of an ex boyfriend.. He broke me and these songs by him were the only ones who related to me and could actually make me feel as though he fucked up and it wasn't me.. Jesse is an amazing artist and his music keeps getting better and better..

  85. Makayla Patterson

    Tears of joy.. And simply because Jesse is the best and I love his voice and music.. he's my inspiration ....♥ u jesse

  86. GladToBeNatural

    Why isn't he on the radio?????

    NucleART

    +GladToBeNatural Because  radio is way to make good musician mainstream and boring .. (:

  87. Clurr

    I went to his concert and I had never listened to this song when he sang it. I cried so much. 

  88. Hannah Grace

    compare this to his song Leavin'...

  89. Jerry Murillo

    Amazing song, really liked it so much! This song itself is 1000x better than a whole One Direction's album.

    Jerry Murillo

    @alona balicao Yes!

    Eric Mbuna

    @alona balicao YES

    dianastyles

    Shame on you, you shouldnt say that! One direction and jesse have different kind of musics so they are talented in their own way. I love one direction, i love jesse i love everyone who make good musics and not complaining about it just enjoy the music no judgement no compares between them, they are all good.

    remy paraskovia

    Anything it's better than 1D they're Crap, Jesse it's a good singer, and this Album is The shit, Stupid young stars Got nothing him .

  90. Zack Mazen

    I love talented singers with passionate lyrics. Compared to his other songs and albums i never truly loved this album but this song is probably the best one on it!

  91. Book Lover

    it hits me right here -points at heart-

  92. Amanda Marconi

    I'll actually admit his new music is way better than that rap shit

  93. moonrockers1962

    Ugh! I love him a whole lots. There's something about his voice not just when he sings but when he speaks and acts. Since I heard him on "Suite Life of Zack and Cody" singing "Beautiful Soul" I've been a fan. And then watching the movie "Keith" and then hearing him voice Robin and Nightwing on "Young Justice". I just love listening to his voice, its so unique.
