These Green Eyes – Bouquet lyrics

When we were young
We had hopes and plans and dreams
Like everyone
I'd like to think that we had fun
And there you were
Now everything that we have
Is just as good today as it was then

I know this started as a game
Like all the others that we used to play
Would I be wrong in any way
If I asked you just this once to stay

Stay with me please. Stay... Please...
But you wouldn't stay

So I hold it in and let it burn
Just as everything that I have left
Is stripped away from me by you again

I don't know why you turn away
Are you afraid to see what's written on my face
Almost begging you to say
That maybe you might feel the same

Did you forget my name
Did you forget my face
When you turned your back on me and walked away
As if I don't exist
As if I never was
As if it never happened
Doesn't matter anymore to you
That I might have emotion

And did you ever stop to think
That your actions had consequences
I wish that I had known
There was an easy way out
As I lie awake and think
Of what you've done to me

So you forget my name
So you forget my face
I've never been betrayed
Like this before.
