Contrast with "Precious", whose speaker hasn't figured this out yet...

lyrics

I've got a friend named Sarah, she's the sweetest girl I know,
and early on I asked her 'bout us giving things a go,
and she said, "Mmm... I'm really into being on my own right now."
But when I introduced her to my old buddy Tim,
it turned out she was really into him.

When she and Tim broke up, you know I thought I saw my chance,
so I asked her how she'd feel about us sharing some romance,
and she said, "Mmm... I'm not ready to date anyone right now."
But when I introduced her to my good buddy Paul,
it turned out she was ready after all.

Oh, when they say, "Not now", they mean, "Not you"...
it's sad but true.
You could wait your life away,
but what a silly, what a stupid thing to do (when life's so short).
Better save your time, go on and find someone new,
Mmm, 'cause when they say, "Not now", they mean "Not you."

When she broke up with Paul... well, some guys never learn.
and it kills me now to think how hard this must have been on her,
but she said, "Mmm... that's not the kind of thing I'm looking for right now."
It took till she got married for me to finally see
The "thing" she wasn't looking for was me.

Oh, when they say, "Not now", they mean, "Not you"...
it's sad but true.
You could wait your life away,
but what a silly, what a stupid thing to do (when life's so short).
Better save your time, go on and find someone new,
Mmm, 'cause when they say, "Not now", they mean "Not you."


I've got a friend named Sarah — god knows how...
