Well my old friend said to me
I ain't being what I'm supposed to be
Well I don't know, it could be true
I know I wasn't always there for you

Now you're ready to walk out, you're ready to run
Talk to me, can't you see
I would never want to do what it seems I've done
You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
Don't let this be the reason you would walk away

The things you think that I should do
I've never understood that part of you
I know I've tried to be a friend
But you feel undermined and hurt again

Now don't let it convince you, don't take it to heart
Compromise and realize you can never really run everything you start
You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
Don't let this be the reason you would walk away

And I guess I said I couldn't see
How things could turn out like they've come to be
And if I lied, if I knew
I was only trying to think of you

Now you're ready to walk out, you're ready to run
Talk to me, can't you see
I would never want to do what it seems I've done
You can't deal me the aces and think I wouldn't play
Don't let this be the reason you would walk away
