Death Cab For Cutie – I Was Once A Loyal Lover lyrics

Will I have learned so very little when these bones are old and brittle?
I wait to talk when I should listen
And cloud mistakes with false revisions

All my friends are forward thinking
Getting hitched and quitting drinking
And I can feel them pulling away
As I'm resigned to stay the same

And you can't even begin to know
How many times I've told myself "I've told told you so"

I was once a loyal lover
Whose lips did never seek another's
And now each love is like a match
A blinding spark that burns out fast
And they all concluded with the same sentence
"I've never meet someone more self-centered
Who thinks that life with a nice girl's like
Waiting for a bus to work"

And you can't even begin to know
How many times I've told myself "I've told told you so"
And you can't even begin to believe
There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me

If you deem it so
Just cut the cord and go
You'll be fine
There's plenty of hills to climb

And you can't even begin to know
How many times I've told myself "I've told told you so"
And you can't even begin to believe
There's so many bridges engulfed in flames behind me
