It wasn't just like a movie
The rain didn't soak through my clothes, down to my skin
I'm driving away and I, I guess you could say
This is the last time I'll drive this way again
When there's nothing to say and I try to grab at the fray
Cause I, I still love you but I can't

Bye, bye, to everything I thought was on my side
Bye, bye, baby
I want you back but it's coming down to nothing
And all you have is to walk away
From the one thing I thought would never leave me, yeah

The picture frame is empty
It's black and white, you're smiling down at me
I take your photo off the dash
And back to the conversation
I was so sure of everything we thought we'd always have
I'm lost in the sound of it
But here in the now comes in
Seems like I'm becoming part of your past

Bye, bye, to everything I thought was on my side
Bye, bye, baby
I want you back but it's coming down to nothing
And all you have is to walk away
From the one thing I thought would never leave me

And there's so much that I can't touch
You're all I want but it's not enough this time
And I can feel you like your slipping through my hands
And I'm so scared of how this ends

Bye, bye, to everything I thought was on my side
Bye, bye, baby
I want you back but it's coming down to nothing
And all you have is to walk away
From the one thing I thought would never leave me

Bye, bye, to everything I thought was on my side
Bye, bye, baby
I want you back but it's coming down to nothing
And all you have is to walk away
From the one thing I thought would never leave me, yeah, yeah
There was one thing I knew would never leave me

It wasn't just like a movie
The rain didn't soak through my clothes, down to my skin

    A girl who thinks that "one thing" is his man and that he will never leave her. Well, that line "and i can feel you like you're slipping through my hands, and i'm so scared of how this ends" reminds me on my best friend and our current situation, well she has loved this guy for about a year, he lives her back and he has told her how much he loves her, and about a day ago he told her the sweetest thing in life, that he will never back down on her, (she told him she doesn't want a bf). And about four days ago she met this guy who is, yes, smart, but just that, he is... Ah i don't like him. I don't trust him, and it seems she's leaving the other boy for this totally new guy. And i feel how she is slipping through my hands cause we don't talk the same as we used to, and i feel she's telling her secrets someone else before me and she don't even tell them to me. When i always tell her the first. Ahh. I am so scared of how this ends. 😪

    Well, taylor is a girl that was together with one guy and maybe he left her and then she says that she thought he was the one thing that would never leave her

    This song is really amazing.. Whenever i get to hear this, i started to cry.. Its about a girl who really loves his man and so she really believed in him like she was putting her whole trust in him that he would never leave her no matter what happens but, he did..
