Lets talk this over
It's not like we're dead
Was it something I did
Was it somethinq you said
Don't leave me hanging
In a city so dead
Held up so high on such a breakable thread

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be
You were everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be but we lost it.
All of the memories so close to me just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending.

You've got your dumb friends
I know what they say
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they
But they don't know me
Do they even know you
All the things you hide from me
All the s**t that you do.

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be.
You were everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be but we lost it
All of the memories so closed to me just fade away
All this time you were pretending so much for my happy ending.

Nice to know you weren't there
Thanks for acting like you care
And making me feel like I was the was the only one
Nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done.

You were everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be but we lost it
All of the memories so close to me just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending.

    It doesn't exist. Happy ending is a fairy tale. If i could choose a happy ending, than i would wish that my ex didn't lie to me all along and that we'd still be happy, now i don't know him anymore.
