so you packed up
and left town unannounced
left a note by the door
that said you'd gone away
and you said that the girl
that we all thought we knew
was just in our heads
it was never you
and you said
"i'm sorry, just don't miss me tonight"

well this time it's over and you won't cave in
and it's sure to be summer till i see you again
so i'll teach myself to never let you down

for every word i wished i'd said
there's another minute where i died instead
as the fact that you were gone started to kill me
christmas is coming and you won't be there
to feed me your lines and claim you still care
yeah, i've heard it before
so don't think that i would forget it

well this time it's over and you won't cave in
and it's sure to be summer till i see you again
so i'll teach myself to never let you down
never forget the lessons you've learned
and i won't forget all the sparks that we've burned
counting stars in the back yard, morning came too soon

i miss bright new york nights
and i promise that this time we'll be just fine
and all i really wanted was for you to hold me

    General CommentThis is the first song I ever heard by them and it's still my favorite.

    I've miss my New York nights.
    And I promise that this time we'll be just fine.
    And all I really wanted was for you to hold me.

    gets me every time

    General CommentAnd it's gotta be someone till we see you again.

    I'm pretty sure he says "summer" not someone.
