I don't mean to sound cliché
You had a perfect world and you threw it away
You had the whole thing resting in your hands and acted like you really didn't give a damn
When you realize that you are wrong, I hope you take a step back and listen to this song time and time again
And realize what could have been
Why are you so selfish?
You got you and I'm jealous
And it seems like every day I think of you in another way
Whether it be questions from a friend or I meet another girl named Erin, a skinhead girl with hardcore mind, and a punk rawk heart who captured mine.
Walking along and I'm singing this song, hoping that maybe you'll hum along
Late night days on Clematis Ave, me and you and what I thought we had catching coffee with your Christian friends
Talking about you and your new men
Maybe we could catch a show
Means so much more than you'll ever know
Thinking back about everything, me and you just seem to ring.
What I feared has begun to start.
The time has come and we've grown apart
The phone now, it fails to ring
And if it does it's not you for me
I often wonder what could have been with this angel of a friend
Maybe one day we'll see, her holding hands back with me
