Every now and then I try to think of what I'd say; If you were to pass me by - if you would look my way. Now don't go thinkin' that you still affect me; Got myself together, and it's so much better. And the nights are better, too. Alone is better than with you. And there's nothing left to tell, I won't lie to myself - and say you really loved me at all.
The way you'd put me down when I'd tell you my dreams. Conveniently not around; Tore me at the seems. And everyone thinkin that you're the good guy. Next one in the picture falls for your saccharin lies. And your nights are better too - cause she doesn't bitch at you. Well there's nothing left to tell. Go on and lie to someone else. Tell her you really love her...
Next one in the picture, I feel sorry for her. Got my life together, and it's so much better. And the nights are better too. Love was never real with you. And you can't blame someone else. Do you feel sorry for yourself? No there's nothing left to tell. No more lies to no one else. Because you never loved no one... but you.
Every now and then I try to think of what I'd say.
