"Francie Nolan" as written by Scot Golley, Daniel Benjamin Yemin, David J Palaitis, Ari Zev Katz and Peter M Martin....
I know you're just confused.
And I know I ain't the best.
But why put my heart to the test?
Can you turn the light on now?

I'm gonna grab my coat.
I'm not sticking around to watch you gloat... this time.
Cause it gets only close enough
So you'll know you'll never have her heart.

Just sometimes words and long waits inbetween,
When she tries hard to be mean.
You'll never have her heart.
But you'll probably hate her now.

You know she's just a name.
But with smoke in her hair,
I could still smell how sweet she would be to kiss.
And we talked about nothing until she had to go where second chances

And small talk could have kept me up all night.
Cause it gets only close enough
So you'll know you'll never have her heart.
Just sometimes words and long waits inbetween,

When she tries hard to be mean.
You'll never have her heart... this time.
