You know I can’t stand to keep it this way.
And though I tried, bought all your lies,
Now it’s too hard to look the other way.
Ever since you looked at me like that,
I haven’t been able to find my way back
To thoughts of life without you by my side.
And now it’s getting harder to hide all of these feelings inside.
So I’ve just gotta tell you tonight,
I know I can never make you mine,
‘Cus even though you’re always on my mind,
You’re too scared to speak yours and show everyone what you’re all about.
And so, it’s easier to love no one but yourself and shut everyone else out.
But I’ve only got myself to blame,
‘Cus though I’ve always known this, I’ve loved you just the same.
And things will never change unless I leave you behind;
It’s better to say goodbye than to spend the night pretending everything’s alright.
So I’ve got to leave you to your life so I can get back to mine.
I guess now there’s nothing left to say but goodbye.
And though you tore me up inside,
I know the reasons why.
And so I’ve got to walk away tonight.
I hope one day I find someone
Who cares as much as me;
‘Cus all pretty poems say I’ve got to set you free.
So I’ll unravel from your finger, and I’ll crumble at the knees.
But I’ll find my way back up on my own two feet.
I loved you once
But surely I’ll find,
A love so pure
I can call it mine.
