you looked in my eyes
& saw to my soul
you had the best of me

I followed my heart
threw my cares to the wind
still I don't regret a thing

tell me how you went from being my best friend
to someone who has to pretend?

we used to be lovers
now we're talking like strangers
I believed in forever
I believed it in vain
a broken heart can go crazy
& this one's insane
but there are some things you can't change
like talking like strangers

we were two of a kind
that's what people said
we were a perfect pair

you were the love of my life
you lifted me up
I followed you anywhere

tell me how you went from being my best bet
to being someone who acts like we've never met?
(repeat chorus)

I'd rather throw punches
make you put up a fight
scream and keep the neighbors up all night
I can't help thinking this just isn't right

I looked in your eyes and saw to your soul
I know who you are inside

was it easier for you to just run away
when you brushed me aside?

I get so angry that I just want to shout
but when I'm near you I can't seem to get it out
(repeat chorus)
