I had a moment, when I thought I might be wrong
But Ashley how could it be
I waited on the rooftop, all night long
But you weren't coming for me
And now I'm sitting here like a mixed up little kid
You said you wanted me but you never did
There was a moment when I thought our love was strong
But now that moment is gone

I could stand right underneath the window of your room
Throwing rocks I've done it before
And I would love to find a reason to dazzle you with lies
But I don't have the energy no more
And you never promise anything you didn't give
I assumed that you'd say yes but you never did
There was a moment my love for you was strong
But now that moment is gone
Now that moment is gone

I saw you behind the camera
Whispering to your friends and watching me
I fell in love with you there
Which proves the fool that I can often be

I had a moment when I thought I might be right
But Ashley how could it be
I drank your share bourbon thinking you might come around
There ain't no one on the rooftop but me
And now I'm sitting here like a mixed up little kid
You said you wanted me but you never did
There was a moment my love for you was strong
But Ashley that moment is gone
Ashley that moment is gone
Now that moment is gone

    ^dont think it's about a breakup. Pretty sure it is about that one woman we've all had who strings us along for years knowing she has your heart, but never says yes when the question is asked.
