these streets are lined with pavements
the same on which you came and went
I’m not the one to make a fuss
but when you got on the bus
my neighbours could hear me crying through the walls

will you miss me at all?
will you wake up and feel my breath against your neck?
and when you stand alone in corners at discoteques
hoping for someone
would you settle for me or would you rather be alone?

spent our last seconds in silence
you let go of my hand
while we waited for the elevator
to take you down and out and away
took me three weeks to figure out what to say

did you love me at all?
will you wake up and feel my breath against your neck?
and when you stand alone in corners at discoteques
hoping for someone
will you settle for me or will you rather be free?

you didn’t even have the decency
to add no more after “I don’t want you”
it was all about you
but it’s different now and I know I’m not alone
this is for the single’s choir
(treated so bad, got so sad
had the time to find that you’re a liar
felt so had, got so mad
this is for the single’s choir)

will we find love at all?
will there ever be someone who shows respect?
and when we stand alone in corners at discoteques
hoping for someone
it could be anyone
anyone but you
