I want you to know I cried
Beneath my baseball cap
I want you to know I would have died
And gone to hell and back
Just to see you smile
The way you used to smile
Before I put this band together
When my love was worthwhile

I never see you anymore
You're never there when I call
And you're asking me
"Why are we breaking up?"

I want you to know I tried
All summer long to hide
From people I knew who would ask me
Why you weren't by my side
I never knew what to say
I pointed out to sea
I circled two shells in the sand
And dug a trench between

I never see you anymore
You're never there when I call
And you're asking me
"Why are we breaking up?"

I had headphones on
I couldn't hear the phone ringing
I was a jerk and now you're gone
In my defence I was singing about you
And how you make me feel ok
When I am having a bad day
I really need you now
This one's the worst so hear me out

I never see you anymore
You're never there when I call
And you're asking me
"Why are we breaking up?"

I never see you anymore
You're never there when I call
And you're asking me
"Why are we breaking up?"

I want you to know I lied
About the 16-track
I want you to know I only sold my songs to get you back

Just to see you smile
The way you used to smile
