  • When we were growing up you always looked like you were having such fun
    You always were and you always will be the taller and the prettier one
    People seem to love you
    They gravitate towards you
    That's why I started to hate you so much
    And I just completely ignored you

    I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
    It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
    I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
    All the pain I've caused you
    The constant flow of all the tears
    Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
    When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
    And if it's not too late
    Could you please find it deep within your heart
    To try and go back go back to the start
    Go back to the start

    I've been so evil with my constant invasions
    But you made it so easy for me
    You always rise to the occasion
    I'll always pull you up on every stupid thing that you say
    But I found it so entertaining
    Messing around with your head

    I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
    It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
    I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
    All the pain I've caused you
    The constant flow of all the tears
    Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
    When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
    And if it's not too late
    Could you please find it deep within your heart
    To try and go back go back to the start
    Go back to the start
    Go back to the start
    Go back to the start

    This is not just a song
    I intend to put these words into action
    I hope that it sums up the way that I feel to your satisfaction

    I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
    It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
    I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
    All the pain I've caused you
    The constant flow of all the tears
    Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
    When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
    And if it's not too late
    Could you please find it deep within your heart
    To try and go back go back to the start

  • Lilyibanez from Los Angeles, CaI'm confused..why would Lily be jealous of Sarah if Lily is the famous one? The way she puts it, in the song, it sounds like she was jealous of Sarah being in the spotlight..
  • Jessica from Bloomfield , NjAbsolute fav song on the album
