For all the good you say it does
It seems no better when you had your say
You may believe it's just because
Words get colder when you've gone away
I thought I understood
What I was to you

I don't want to feel this way no
I don't want to say I'm just a friend
I don't want to wait around here
Cause you don't want to feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

Some may fear committed lives
I sure am one of them without you
Does it come to you as some surprise
I lay the ground beneath to doubt you
Was it ever, girl, something you could hold

I don't want to feel this way no
I don't want to say I'm just a friend
I don't want to wait around here
Cause you don't want to feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

I don't want to look away
I don't want to be the one denied
It ain't no fault of mine
Someone somewhere told you lies
We don't talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves
We don't talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves

I don't want to feel this way no
I don't want to say I'm just a friend
I don't want to wait around here
Cause you don't want to feel no pain again
We just lie about it
As we become shadows of ourselves

I don't want to look away
I don't want to be the one denied
It ain't no fault of mine
Someone somewhere told you lies
We don't talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves
We don't talk about it
We just become shadows of ourselves
