about

Hello my love, is this how it's going to end
Where we say it doesn't hurt much, at least we can pretend
That we have got much smarter and celebrate the past
and lament how in this modern age, nothing real can last
But I remember sitting there with you
Staring across the shore
You held me close and whispered
That you want so much more
Than this
Is really really over and we go our separate ways
I can hide behind sarcasm and those clever things I say
There's not much point in fighting now that the course is set
We'll just go our separate ways and do our best to forget
That something inside burning
Now has been put out
And while I only whisper
I really want to shout
That I was left behind
Not because you're cruel
I was left behind
You had something better to do
You held my hand and said
It's me, it's not you
But it feels so bad knowing that we're through

and if it wasn't real then what about the time
I felt like yours and you felt like you were mine
Did you have to keep way down inside
Where running away was better than being forced to hide
So it's really over you just walk away
And something inside is colder and I lose the words to say
You are coming over to share one last embrace
My body and mind linger as I savor one last tast
So it's really over
You just walk away
There is this dream I had
Where you would just stay
A while
Stay a while and we could never end
Stay a while, stay a while
That I was left behind
Not because you're cruel
I was left behind
You had something better to do
You held my hand and said
It's not me, it's you
But it feels so awful knowing that we're through

That I was left behind
Not because you're cruel
I was left behind
You had something better to do
You held my hand and said
It's not me, it's not you
But it feels so bad knowing that we're through
Yeah it feels so bad knowing we are through
Yeah I feel like crap, knowing that we're though
