It's ok to be going downhill with me
It's ok to be going downhill with me
The promise I made that I never kept
The things that I said I should have meant

It's ok to be walking away from you
We swore to stay in touch just like lovers do
The letters I wrote that I never sent
The postage I saved I should have spent
On long distance phone calls to you
But I was waiting for the perfect time to make the phone call
I was waiting
I was waiting but the waiting proved to be my downfall
My downfall, yeah
I was waiting for the perfect time to make a phone call
I was waiting
I was waiting but the waiting proved to be my downfall
My downfall

Cause you
Had already found
Someone else who
Was going uphill

I was waiting for you

    General Commentugh this is so sad. especially because my boyfriend right now lives far away, and this feels like a bad omen or something.
    "i was waiting but the waiting grew to be my downfall
    'cause you had already found someone else who was going uphill."

    General CommentIf any of you know the Phili artist, Fern Knight, she has a song called "Boxing day", that is a response to this song. It's very good.
