I stole a last look
I stole a last look at you
In your heels with your hair done
Foolish and high-strung
I thought you might need something better than the truth
That could get me back to bed with you
And let me use you like I knew

And I thought it'd be you
I didn't know what I was thinking
It was hubris I was drinking
It was mixed with your perfume
And I thought it'd be you
It would have killed me just to love you
So I kept myself above you and your love

I made you perfect
I made you perfect in an image God would condemn
Cause you stole it from Him
You saw through me and lies
I didn't know that I was telling
Infatuation I was selling
And calling it love

And I thought it'd be you
You thought a while before you answered
I threw my words at you like cancer
And you hit me back with tears
I thought it'd be you
And for a year I had considered
If these last six years had mattered
Then you were gone

I'll see you Thursday
I'll see you Thursday, has it been
Two years or one day since the last time we saw each other
You've got a husband and a family you can care for now
Someone to cook a meal for now
But I keep showing up and you know
I can't leave, you can't quit reminding me again

And I thought it'd be you
And even though you're better off there
I still don't know why I still care
And I miss your morning eyes
And I thought it'd be you
You try and guard me like an angel
So for now let's just be strangers
Let's fade away and burn out now
Let's fade away and burn out now
Let's fade away and burn out dark again
