Josh Verdes – Reality Bites lyrics

So I heard from a friend
You have branched out onto your own way
So I heard you're independent now
And don't need all your friends anymore

Well that's ok
It might be easy to say
While you're trailing away
Onto something new
But don't you say
I didn't ask you to stay
Cause you know deep inside
Lies the truth

Let's stop playing games
It's not any fun
Reality bites
In a perfect world
We'd still be ok
Reality bites

So you said
That day to me
Time apart was for the best
And I recall
When asking why
Suddenly left with no reply

Well that's ok
Easy to walk away
When you know you're afraid of the truth
But don't you say
I didn't ask you to stay
Cause you know deep inside
I'm the one for you

Well if it makes any difference
I've got one thing to say
From me, personally, I want you to stay
And if the timing's right lets work it out
But walk away...
And I'll have nothing left to say except...

You're not over me yet
And I'm not over you
Let's stop pretending we're still friends
Cause our awkward silences prove otherwise...
Reality bites...
