The Softies – Write It Down lyrics

I wrote it down
And hoped that you would find it
Long after I had gone
As far away as I could get
From those words I couldn't say
You'll be better off the day I go away

We were almost in love
So close but never close enough

You wrote it down
And put it in my pocket
I didn't find it 'til
It was too late to change my mind
We'll be happier this way
I would only let you down if I should stay

We were almost in love
So close but never close enough
