Oh no, look what you've done,
Left me the victim of a hit and run.
Picked up and let down,
You were never as you led on.
You said: "Just friends and no strings."
That leaves loose ends for all things.
Get back to old days and old ways,
You never left for real. (Won't you let me know?)

How do I get away, when you're begging me to stay?
What do you need me to say?
You're anything but ordinary.
What do you want me to do?
I've given it all to you.
I wish you would return the favour.

Did you, forget what I said?
Train wreck, (here we) here we go again.
Derailed and I failed to mention, I put it on the line.
Whether you and me could ever be, we'll never see no.
'Cause you keep the lights off, you only do it in the dark.
Won't you let me know?

How do I get away, when you're begging me to stay?
What do you need me to say?
You're anything but ordinary.
What do you want me to do?
I've given it all to you,
I wish you would return the favour.

Are you gonna throw it all away?
Are we gonna do this all again?
Maybe it's all pretend and the games should end, I guess nobody wins.
(Won't you let me know?)

How do I get away, when you're begging me to stay?
What do you need me to say?
You're anything but ordinary.
What do you want me to do?
I've given it all to you,
I wish you would return the...

How do I get away, when you're begging me to stay?
What do you need me to say?
You're anything but ordinary.
What do you want me to do?
I've given it all to you,
I wish you would return the favour.
