Legitimate Business – A Bitter Goodbye Song lyrics

Through the nights we spent talking 'til we saw the sunrise
I never thought I'd have to see you go.
All the plans and the promises, excuses and lies
I never thought I'd have to see you go.

Why did we lose touch?
The closest of friendships, when we swore that we'd never change.
Thought you'd remember
The nights fueled by coffee runs. The 3 am drives in the rain.

Were you so much better? Was I just younger then?
Are your new friends successful and will you abandon them?
Will you cry and smoke cigarettes while you're singing clichйd songs?
Will you tell them you love them? Will you finally belong?

Spare me the heartbreak.
The half-baked apologies. This friendship meant nothing to you.
We may be older
But I gave you all of me. Was I a crutch to get you through?

Through the drama you told me, I was always listening.
So treat me like a bastard, when I don't owe you a thing.
I went through all my troubles, but treasured all my friends.
I believed you when you told me that you'd be there 'til the end.

Why you moved and never told me, I'll never understand.
I never thought I'd have to see you go.
We'll never call each other, and you'll start another band.
I never thought I'd have to see you go.
For making all the promises that you'd never see through.
I never thought I'd have to see you go.
For all the friends who broke my heart, this one goes out to you.
I wish I didn't hate to see you go.

I never thought I'd have to see you go.
