  • Pretend you're happy, pretend we're fine
    I guess that's easier after all this time
    Talk about someone else then look in my eyes
    I know you still hold on to us inside
    But we watched that butterfly fly

    I'd give anything just to be with you again but it's not the right time
    And I'd give anything just to feel you on my skin
    But it's not the right time and it'll never be the right time, will it?
    It might never be the right time and that's the hardest part of it

    I keep you in my mind even though you've gone
    Holding on to nothing's easier than letting go
    Stuck in the memory of what has been
    Just please don't love another like you loved me
    Time doesn't heal, it just leaves me asking why

    I'd give anything just to be with you again but it's not the right time
    And I'd give anything just to feel you on my skin
    But it's not the right time and it'll never be the right time, will it?
    It might never be the right time and that's the hardest part of it

    And I don't know why I feel this way
    If I could, I'd change, believe me
    And I know that you feel the same, is it too late for saving?
    Oh, here I go again

    Cause I'd give anything just to be with you again but it's not the right time
    And I'd give anything just to feel you on my skin
    But it's not the right time and it'll never be the right time, will it?
    It might never be the right time and that's the hardest part of it
    It'll never be the right time, will it? Writer/s: NINA LINDBERG NESBITT
