i lied to you that night we sat alone
i could tell that deepest down you wanted to go home
so i said it was ok
i just wanted to be friends
a conclusion confirmed with a hug and a smile
but when i left you i cried for a mile

just walking home as the morning wakes
the birds begin to sing, i break
i'm breaking down in the middle of the street
and it's all because of this
just trying to get home as night reclines
the sky becomes to glow, i try
trying so hard to forget all the things i said
i could have told the truth, but only the lonely do

and for what?
for this?
fuck this

i lied to you that night we were alone
you told me that you regretted the kisses you'd shown
so i swallowed my heart down
in a move to end your frown
and i said that it had been a mistake
a conclusion that ended in a heart so ripe to break
a conclusion confirmed with a hug and a smile
but when i left you i cried for a mile

and for what?
for this?

    General Comment to me this song means the regret you have from not saying what you were feeling. this is so similar to my life right now that it's scary.. especially the part that goes: so i said it would be ok. i just wanted to be friends. a conclusion confirmed with a hug and a smile. but when i left you, i cried for a mile. i've never known anything as painful as knowing that i love someone so much, and they don't feel the same way.

    General Commentto me, this song means that people should say how they feel. of course, when you really tell me how you feel about them, they get pissed off.
