If it were just another day

You know I might have stayed

To be beaten to the ground
But I couldn't hang around




Chorus:

You asked me for something

You know I couldn't lend

You tried to make me break

But it hurt too much to bend
And the more I see of what used to be our love, I find


That we've just been going nowhere
And we're never gonna get there


And we're wastin' our time



If I were just another guy
You know I might have tried

To fit into you schemes



And to have a plastic dream


Chorus




It was just another lie
I couldn't swallow when I tried
Just enough to realize

I'd been pretendin' all the time





Chorus



You asked me for something

You know I couldn't lend
You tried to make me break

But it hurt too much to bend

And the more I see of what used to be our love, I find


That we've just been going nowhere
And we're never gonna get there

And we're wastin' our time



And the more I see of what used to be our love, I find
That we've just been going nowhere


And we're never gonna get there


And we're wastin' our time
(Repeat 2 x's)
