1. You can see me falling
but you donít pick me up anymore †
not like when we used to be friends  

Letís not mention the times  
we blurred the lines †
theyíre for a different photo album †

We arenít and never were †
anything worth giving a name to †

2. Iím tired of the two year stories  
still circulating out of your mouth †
like theyíre new and interesting †

Youíre less fascinating †
than you think you are †
and Iím almost ashamed to say †
Iím still using you as a muse †

3. You know me less †
than I let you believe †
youíve never seen the best of me †
the worst of me, the middle of me †  
Iím just a stranger you know the name of †

4. You tell me I'm too negative †
Iím not negative †
Iím just realistic †
if I canít be friends with logic †
Iím as good as fucked anyway †
because hope doesnít pay the bills †
while you brag about your awesome new cashed-up holiday †
and then tell me you feel bad †
when I say I havenít had a break in longer †
than I can remember †

Iíll hear all about your vacay
whether I want to or not

5. I hate that I canít escape you †
I would run a million miles †
just not to see your face again †
and the way it hurt when you let me down †

I still wear the scars of those days †
though I know you canít see them †

6. Sometimes I forget  
there is always a way out †

Iím not here for the long haul †
when I say good bye †
when I say Iíll drop round sometime †
next time Iím in town †
I hope you know Iím lying †
