lyrics

How'd we get here I ask myself
Hopin' someone else
Will clue me in on the answer
And I noticed all the things I missed
And the heart I kissed
And the chill from your walking out that door

You never can be sure of just what will happen
Or you'd jump out of the car before it starts crashin'

You're smiling and you're waving
Goodbye and I just can't turn around
You're cryin' as I'm dyin'
From this hurting inside
Don't want to go, don't need to know I told you so's

You're so civil and hard to read
My heart's in your teeth
But you keep on biting down gently
And you're certain just as certain as I
But you can't say goodbye
It's just easier to live a lie

You've got that faded smile to coverin' your pain
I wonder under all your faces do we feel the same?

I hear your footsteps fallin' deeper in the distance
Growing weaker with resistance as I call
But then there's nothin' but the smile that you left watching
In my head it's just been stalkin' every inch I knew of love

You're smiling and you're waving
Goodbye and I just can't turn around
You're cryin' as I'm dyin'
From this hurting inside
Don't want to go, don't need to know I told you so's
