There’s traffic on the northern line
We say goodbye the final time
Pretend that we meant something more than this
When the memories you left behind
Remind me you were never mine
The lonely train you left without a kiss

The golden girl, the silver spoon
The eyes like pearls that wept too soon
Haunt me up until the day I die
I climb aboard the sinking ship
Biting on my bottom lip
And wait for time to heal my pride
But time was never on my side
Me and you were just a ride

Seven weeks have come to pass
I stumble on the photograph
To see the lucky man to take my place
Cloak and dagger from the start
You twist the knife into my heart
Watch my eyes bleed tracks upon my face

Me who lost the will to live
When you who lost the will to give
Taking with the little left inside
I climb aboard the sinking ship
Biting on my bottom lip
And wait for time to heal my pride
But time was never on my side
Me and you were just a ride
Me and you were just a ride
Me and you were just a ride

You lied, you lied, you lied, you liar
You lied, you lied, you lied, you liar
You lied, you lied, you lied, you liar
You lied, you lied, you lied, you liar

The golden girl, the silver spoon
The eyes like pearls that wept too soon
Haunt me up until the day I die
I climb aboard the sinking ship
Biting on my bottom lip
And wait for time to heal my pride
I’ll love you ‘til the day I die
Me and you were just a ride
