I was the one
I was the one who tried to pick you up
But the other one was waiting
I could not afford to be stood up

Right as you called
Right as you called, I had to get my stuff
Don't defend the decision
Or pretend it didn't happen to us

Just before I could go
She would run, run, run, run, run, run, run

She was the one
She was the one who tried to break us
One who tried to take us apart
She was the one before the fun had even begun

And I hardly think about her
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time, time, time, time, time and more

But forgiving is fun
On the nights when I knew that she was the one
I kept my date book open
Just to angle for a coffee with someone

But she'll never fall
She'll never fall in love with one of us
She's the type to keep us thinking
All along that we've got things worked up

Just before all I saw
I could run, run, run, run, run, run, run

She was the one
She was the one who tried to break us
One that tried to take us apart
She was the one before the fun had even begun

And I hardly think about her
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time, time, time, time, time and more

You and I both know that's real enough to let it go but still
We've got things all thinking all the time enough to talk about
And you know why things go wrong

She was the one
She was the one who tried to break us
One who tried to take us apart
Yeah, she was the one before the fun had even begun

And I hardly think about her
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time
Hardly think about her, hardly think about her
All the time, time, time, time, time, time, time and more

I think that she was the one
I think that she was the one
