About You Now is a song by Miranda Cosgrove, originally sung by the Sugababes. It was released as the fourth and final single from the soundtrack on 5 February 2009. The original lyrics were slightly altered to be made more suitable due to Cosgrove's younger audience. Cosgrove's version was promoted heavily on Nickelodeon, where the music video was played during commercial breaks. "About You Now" was featured on the hit compilation album, Now That's What I Call Music! 30. It is her favorite song from the soundtrack.

LyricsEdit

Maybe I'm wrong, you decide Should've been strong, yeah, I lied Nobody gets me like you

Couldn't keep hold of you then How could I know what you meant? There was nothing to compare to

There's a mountain between us But there's one thing I'm sure of That I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around? 'Cos I know how I feel about you now I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down But I know how I feel about you now

All that it takes, one more chance Don't let our last kiss be our last I'm outta my mind just to show you

I know everything changes I don't care where it takes us 'Cos I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around? 'Cos I know how I feel about you now I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down But I know how I feel about you now

Not a day pass me by Not a day pass me by When I don't think about you

And there's no moving on 'Cos I know you're the one And I can't be without you

Can we bring yesterday back around? 'Cos I know how I feel about you now I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down But I know how I feel about you now

Can we bring yesterday back around? 'Cos I know how I feel about you now I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down But I know how I feel about you now But I know how I feel about you know Yeah, I know how I feel about you now

The music video, directed by Bille Woodruff premiered on Nickelodeon on 5 December 2008, following the premiere of Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh.[45] It features Mexican singer Diego González as her love interest. In the music video, Miranda is with her friends at the mall where, simultaneously, so is her ex-boyfriend. The best friends look at a necklace then go to a photo booth to take pictures. The pictures of two girls acting like they are dating remind Miranda about her break up with her old boyfriend. They then go on an esculator and Miranda spots her ex. She then texts him that she got it all wrong with him and her love interest locates her and gives her the neckelace that Miranda saw in the beginning of the video that she likes. They end up being back together at the end of the video.
