For all the good you say it does It feels no better when you've had your say You may believe it's just because The words get colder when you're gone away I thought I understand
What I was to you I don't want to feel this way I don't want to say I'm just a friend I don't want to wait around here 'Cos you don't want to feel no pain again We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves Some may fear committed lives I sure am one of them without you Does it come to you as some surprise I laid the ground beneath to doubt you Was it ever girl
Something you could hold I don't want to feel this way I don't want to say I'm just a friend I don't want to wait around here 'Cos you don't want to feel no pain again We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves I don't want to look away I don't want to be the one denied It ain't no fault of mine Someone, somewhere told you lies But we don't talk about it We just become shadows of ourselves
