lyrics

Should I feel stupid for caring
About this new pairing
cos technically you’re both free so
It’s nothing to do with me, although –
I try to look away but keep staring,
Don’t get me wrong it’s not him my eyes fall on
cos he’s not the one I lose through the thing you’ve done

Tell me when did this end?
I didn’t get the memo was I away the day I got relegated to expendable friend?
People say a lot through the things they choose
And this says a lot about you and me but
It doesn’t make it easier

I know we don’t spend much time together
But the child in me thought we’d be friends forever
Now that delusion’s gone I was wrong
but still I want to hold on to -
Memories memories memories you’ve no idea how much you mean to me
I keep them and I’ll let you go
But I’ll always wonder why you didn’t just phone

Tell me when did this end…

I tried to be honest to give you and me a chance
You know I never was good at pretending
But you ran for the hills with your olive branch
Guess you’d rather opt out than face the possibility
Of an awkward conversation with me
Cut and run and let your bridges burn

Tell me when did this end…

Wonder what you told yourself to make it ok
Guess I’ll never know cos no words came my way
You just want to be happy, I get that
And that’s what I want for you too
But people say a lot through the things they choose
And this says a lot about you and me but
that doesn’t make it easier any easier
