Can you not see
What you've done
You gave your heart away like that I didn't want to fall
With anyone but you did.
I can still hear
The melody behind the kiss you gave me,
You were wrong
I was right so I walked away.
And left you there,
I got so tired of talking on the telephone.
How many times would we say the words "Goodbye"?
I made mistakes
was telling you that I'd be there when telling-time had come.
I should've said I didn't care.
Oh the time I would have saved
If I had been less willing to accommodate.
You'd been a little less likely to cry.
You go back to the high life
And I'll go back to the low.
I should've known
But now I know.
There'll be no words
Describing how it felt to go through what I put you through.
It all makes perfect sense.
The way you cut
That kept you dangling from such bitter full amounts of hope.
I would have cut it too.
