She is dressed to kill
He's a nervous wreck
He's got his best jacket on
And a tie around his neck
He's the perfect gentleman
Deep in conversation
He only wants to be her everything

So we go through the motions
Leaving you hopeless
I'll break you with these tired eyes in good time

It's 3 am and I'm outside of your window
Screaming my lungs out
Cause I want the world to know
This is how you fall apart
You've got me in pieces
Yeah we grew apart
I know I gave you reasons

So we go through the motions
Leaving you hopeless
I'll break you with these tired eyes in good time
Brace yourself
You know what's coming now
I could have been your only way out

So you think you've got me figured out
What I'm all about
Was it easy enough for you?
This time, we lied, to ourselves
(We finally figured out)
We get along like a house on fire
We get along like a house on fire

So we go through the motions
Leaving you hopeless
I'll break you with these tired eyes in good time
Brace yourself
You know what's coming now
I could have been your only way out

I can't wait on you forever
I can't wait on you forever
So long
So long
So long
So long
