All those late nights last summer
That we would talk on the phone,
You stayed up with me,
so I wouldn't be by myself.
And then that one night you said
What I never thought I'd hear you say.
You said “Baby I'm so sorry,
But my feelings aren't there anymore”
And I held back my tears
Until you hung up the phone.
Then I broke into pieces
And told myself its better that your gone.
I know shouldn't hold on to it,
But tell me, then, why do I?
Why do I do anything
To get myself closer to you?
But I didn't want us to be separated,
And so I took a shot in the dark.
And now I have to live with this pain,
The beating of my broken heart.
Today I passed you on the street,
So I pretended not to see you wave.
And my friends, they always talk about you,
But I don't hear a word they say to me.
So I paint on my fake smile
Just to make it through the night.
But when I hear your name,
I just don't know what to do with myself.
And I know shouldn't hold on to it,
But please tell me why I do.
